ICON Helmet Fit???

I'm thinking about getting an Icon helmet but I'm not sure how they fit. Been reading stuff on line saying they fit small.

Is this true?
I have a Suomy and I wear a med in that, but a wear a small Shoei.

Stick with the Suomy!

Unless you're going for style.

Icon isn't bad, just Suomy is better, as far as protecting your noggin.

What kind of price range you looking at? For the price, the new RPHA10 is a very good helmet.. They go anywhere from $250 up to $500 lol

well, if the fit is what is bothering you (ie: doesnt fit as described) then you might want to stick with what you got. but if the Icon is more fashionable, some icon products are more urban or youth fitting, then the choice should be clear.

Idk, but in my experience, the Icons run a lil bigger than the same size Scorpion. My Scorpions fit snug but my Icon is noticeably looser.

Icons I believe run a bit bigger. I have a M Scorpion Exo400, M Icon Domain 2, and M AGV GP-Tech. The Scorpion and AGV fit perfectly, the Icon fits well, but it is a bit looser than the Scorpion and AGV.

I wear an ICON helmet. They fit a little more snug when it is new. Once you start wearing it more, they will loosen a little bit but will revert back to new condition once you wash them. I washed mines and they went back to being snug.

had a 707 helmet before and the difference is the ICON contours closer on the cheeks then 707
