    Sorry man. ICON is one helmet brand we absolutely cannot sell at work. Legal stuff.

    they look nice and all, but ive heard of problems with them, like vents falling off..helmets are one of those things with me where im willing to spend the extra money on something nicer, like arai, soumy, shoei, agv, etc

    Not at all impressed with the Ikon helmets. Graphics are cool but the quality sucks.

    For roughly the same price as a low end arai or shoei by low end I mean choice of graphics, they are a tad on the heavy side "for the price". I thought about it then I said to myself just get one of the other two. My 2 cents

    what about the quality sucks...i bought a closeout one from newenough for 70 bux...its nothing fancy looking...but should i b worried about a vent falling off, or do i need to be worried about my head going thru it if i hit the pavement? im assuming that since it is DOT and snell...then it HAS to have the impact quality...but the rest of the quality is what will suffer w/ a cheaper helmet? correct me if im wrong

    (didnt mean to treadjack)

    You will be alright. Most likely, unless the helmet is deffective.


    There is a difference though between getting a 100 dollar helmet and a 500 dollar helmet.

    And that is you dont leave it on ur bike

    Like anything else. You get what you pay for. a more expensive helmet gets better with every respect. Better protection, more comfort, better liner material, adjustable sizing, better venting, quieter, lighter and on and on...

    Snell and Dot are protection guidelines. A $100 helmet meets the minimum standards for protection. A $500 helmet exceeds the standards. To each his own, but I'm not going to trust my dome to anything that meets the minimum. We participate in a high speed, dangerous sport. Your helmet is you most important piece of protective gear. Don't cheap out!

    I have had my Mainframe for three years now, I cannot complain about quality one bit, I tried on 500 dollar helmets and found really no increase in quality. In fact the Arai and shoei felt really tight on the top of my head to the point that it was uncomfortable.

    Trash ICON all you want but the lid and gloves I got have been A-O.K. in my book.....
