    Icon Variant Medallion Gloss

    My initial impressions are that this helmet is comfortable but tends to run a little on the small side of of the size range.  The wide peripheral vision gives a good view of the road and the noise level is fairly low as compared to other helmets I’ve tried.  It is very nicely packaged and comes with a  helmet bag, anti-fogging lens cleaner and lens cloth and a removable chin curtain for colder weather riding.  The lens is so clear that I would suggest a tinted lens for sunny days! 

    Icon developed this as a street helmet but I think it will fit the need for a dual-sport helmet as well.  Removing the lens is not a “quick” process but it can be done if you prefer to use goggles.  Here is a link to Icon’s tech video:
