I only really see Icon associated with the stunt scene. It's just flash imo. Sparx helmets are cheap and look good. Bell helmets are nice as well.

rode for 2 and 1/2 hour not a problem at all.... def not heavy! my HJC fs-15 was heavier

ican honestly say i love my icon! very comfortable, does not stink, liner does not stay wet after riding in the heat, breathes amazing!, quite, does not lift up on my head( my older HJC fs-15 did at higher speeds did) light, and very sexy with my mowhawk on it lol

i have 2 icon airframe helmets had my gf use the red one for a few months she loved it so much she went out and got her own one in PINK

totally untrue !!! best one i have ever had. HJC fs-15 sucked major! kbc raper was better then HJC but still sucked. HJC cl-15? worst! have tried other ppls scorpion exo400, aria. good but not great. also tried ICON mainframe and SSR allaince and they were bad.

so saying "icon ventilation sucks" is not true just like any other helmet brand on the market there are different models, all with different price points, different features and so on.

the airframe and Domain are great!!!!!!

Icon helmets are a great middle of the road helmet that offers variety and quality. I see no reason not to buy one.
