Customer Reviews for Icon Airflite Synthwave - Purple
I like it
I like this helmet, I took a risk buying it and I know what my risk was the oval part is the frame of the helmet itself, so the putting on and taking off of the helmet will pull the head off you ha, but the actual inside once your head is in is great fit to be honest the view through the visor is great, easy to change visors on the fly if needed, vents are real good, if its cold out you will feel it, people say its loud, it can be at times, but if you have bluetooth device with noise cancelling and those things that press the speakers to your ears, the wind noise reduced, same as most mid range helmets anyway, only lost one star to me as the getting on and off which is a pain but doable.Read more
Style and comfort
I fell in love with this helmet when I saw it and its everything I expected. A little noisy in the wind but quickly forgivable with the fit and form of this. Loving it. P.S. it glows in the dark!Read more
Awesome Helmet, amazing price!
Customer service was absolutely top notch. I'd seen the helmet cheaper elsewhere, so I sent them a price match request and within a day they'd messaged me back saying no problem, honouring it no quibble! I'm used to companies normally pulling out all sorts of excuses not to, but these guys were brilliant! The helmet itself is a real head turner and the field of view is much improved from my old Shark Skwal, the only downside is that it's a little louder with wind noise, but that's because it's more open around your chin/neck area - which is great for me in summer in terms of breathability, but will probably need a buff or something else in winter. The vents are a lot better too compared to the Shark, with the two small slide vents on top being easier to open and close and the one in the chin guard allowing far more air flow than the Skwal could. Other than wind noise (which isn't actually that excessive on my daily commute) it's an awesome bit of kit with top quality padding and a ridiculously easy visor swap out system that doesn't risk breaking every time you try or stripping screws like my Skwal did (2x broken visors now with Shark and not through dropping, they just have a really bad design flaw with the way the visor's claw shaped fitment attaches it to the helmet mechanism). I also actually prefer the D-loop fastener on this compared to the ratchet system too, feels a lot more secure, so it's definitely a recommend from me.Read more
I absolutely love the design of the helmet I've had it for a couple of weeks and have already gotten compliments on how it looks.Read more
Fantastic helmet, bit noisy
Fantastic looking helmet, really a head turner. I recommend using a purple face shield for best looks. A bit noisier than my previous Icon Variant (coming from the side pods).Read more
Great looks, correct fit, but loud!
Bought this helmet as I love the 80s inspired looks coupled with the different visor design. The helmet fits me perfectly (I'm a shoei/arai size small) it was initially a bit tight, but loosened up after about a half hours use and is now snug and correct. It always gets me looks, and lives up to the icon image. Any speed over 50mph on a naked bike and this lid becomes loud. It's mainly as it's very well ventilated and not all vents can be shut. This is easily solved with a set of earplugs though. The visor is classed as anti fog and does well, but it does get overcome by a foggy/chilly morning and slow riding, which means not enough airflow to demist. Drop down visor is cool! Tinted iridium, but the switch for it is a tad fiddly and takes getting used to. All in all this helmet is a great middle range lid with good spec and attitude! Just don't expect £400 finish or quality.Read more
