I just got a new Icon Mainframe Halo for the wife. I've only put a few miles on the thing as I wore it to and from work today. This is to replace her helmet I wore during my accident so I''m not sure how much time I'll get on this one. :)

First off, the thing is light. Very comparable to the more expensive Arai, Shoei and Suomy models I've tried. The finish may not be as good as the more expensive models but the fit is great. It seems like I have a larger viewable area through the visor. The front of the helmet is longer than most others and it gives you plenty of space between you mouth/nose and the inside of the helmet.

Internal webbed pockets will hold your radio speakers without having to remove the liner to mount them. Seems as quiet as my Arai RX7-RR3 but is much lighter than the Shoei XSP-1. It uses a classic notch style visor system, and it's easy to change from a clear or tinted shield.

More to come as I'll be doing a more detailed review on my site after getting some more miles on it.

I have one also. I like it. It's very comfortable, and light. Only problems are that it whistles just a little with the vents open, and it gets a little hot in the sun(my first black helmet).

I know, I'm like the spokesmen for Icon heh?

I just really like their stuff. There are really making a great effort to produce products for the street rider. Hey, that's me!

You'll have to read around the HTML tags that were left from the old site import, but I think these two threads will tell you all you need to know.
Dang, I guess it's all been said in the threads. No two accidents are ever the same. I was wearing my AGVSport mesh jacket during my accident and it doesn't have a scratch on it.

Yes, indeed all crashes are different.

What hasn't been said is that since then it has come up a couple more times and even Chain is coming around.

I haven't been around bikes as long as many on the site, but in the 20 years I have been around them, I've come to the conclusion you should always wear the best protecting gear there is and all other considerations (price, looks, comfort, as far as things like sweat are concerned) should be secondary. This is MY conclusion of course.

At least nowadays in this competitive market you can get great gear that protects as good as the top brands, looks good and doesn't break the bank.
