Icon Airmada - Nikova 2
Customer Product Reviews
Great helmet, padding is super comfortable. The pattern on the outside is continued onto the padding but in gold. Good reduced wind noise. Only let down is the weight of the helmet when compared to a Shoei ect but then this isn't a £450 helmet.
Best Helmet Owned
What can i say other than WOW, i have been riding for many years and have owned many helmets but this one is the best by far! it cups nicely round your jawline and DOESN'T squash your cheeks ! the wind noise is minimal and the visor lock is a nice touch. the construction is extremely good and very well made even the quick release visor was a nice touch to other complex helmets I've owned so to sum up if your looking for a superb helmet this is the one to buy !
Nice helmet but...
Got this for my daughter who has a small sized head. The small size wouldnt fit on her head. The medium was painful to get on her head. She ended up getting a large sizel. However sportsbikeshop sent out the different sized helmets quickly and free of charge. So we got there eventually
Best air flow in a helmet I've ever worn
For starters there is a huge amount of vents that allows for the best ventilation I have ever experienced in a helmet. A good buy if you struggle with a hot head on rides. This helmets also have amazing looks as it is not tarnished with any branding what so ever. This is completed with the smoked visor that is a optional extra. Negative side: the fitting round the cheeks is very tight. Making it painful and uncomfortable to put on and take off the helmet. Just a word of warning.
Amazing Looking Comfy helmet
Packaging on SportBikeShop's helmet delivery is AMAZING, even when ordered with other items this came in its own specially protected packaging. When I did finally get it out the box this design is just amazing! Looks even better in real life. Fits snuggly and the ventilation is brilliant with a large channel on the top of the helmet that does an excellent job in cooling in the warmer weather. One note that I struggled with is the fitting of a Bluetooth headset (Cardo Scala) all the interior components fitted excellent but due to a skirt round the underside, fitting the unit was a bit of a pain. This is no means a detractor from the quality of the helmet, but worth bearing in mind.
Bought this for my first bike; previously have had Arai and Shark helmets as a passenger. I love this helmet! Really comfortable, sizing is perfect and the design is the best I've ever seen (it gets a lot of looks!). Service from Sportsbikeshop was brilliant, and it arrived within 2 days. Thank you!
A change of helmet for the better
This Icon lid is not only stylish, it's a great fit, keeps outside noise down and is very light to wear. Having always worn Shoei or Scorpions this is a very fine alternative which I look forward to racking up the miles in. I chose my usual size (M) and found the fit slightly snugger than others, however to go up a size would have been too big and with a great selection of cheek pad sizes you can easily get this to feel perfect. Just need to get a darker visor and yes there are plenty of shades to choose from to fit as well.
Perfect fit, amazing value
This helmet has an amazing design making it extremely visible. It has minimal wind noise at high speeds - One of the main factors towards buying a new helmet. The helmet fit itself feels very spacious around the head but is secure with a great buckle mechanism. Only minor issue I've found with this helmet is the standard visor has no anti-fog coating, however upon researching I've found that Icon sell a number of good visors in a range of tints.
Pros: Helmet looks nice. No garish branding or print. The visor remains fog free without the need for a Pinkock. Nice amount of vents too to keep the air inside circulating. Cons: I found the visor locking mechanism very hard to use, especially with gloves on. It is also quite noisy. Overall an okay helmet. There's certainly better helmets but this one is a good option for the price.
Good: Bang for your buck you will not get better. Design and styling is Quality. Is a great fit for a full oval head shape but did get 1 size bigger than normal for the best fit. You must test fit new helmet before you buy. Ventilation is great to keep visor clear and your head cool. Noise suppression inside the helmet is one of the best I have ever come across in this price range. Bad: The helmet was a little tight getting it on and off with neck and cheek padding but will ease off with some use I am sure.
Amazing helmet. After firstly ordering the wrong size It was returned and exchanged very quickly and I was kept informed the whole time. And the helmet is brilliant. Looks good. And is comfortable. Only downside is the latch on the visor which can be a little fiddly.
Design = class. Matt finish = even better. Very comfy helmet, clear visor that doesn't really fog up. A couple of times I've ridden at night my breath will fog it up ever so slightly but opening a slight gap will prevent this. After two weeks of use I can't fault it, let's hope it stays that way.
Lovely bit of kit
Firstly, the build quality is excellent. Feels snug and made from good materials. Venting system really makes a difference in a warm climate and was noticeably 'cooler' than my other helmet in terms of air flow. Bought a blue tint visor too, and install was easy. As for the graphics - pretty stunning. Looks very good and the white helmet is a 'safe' colour too. It's not a budget lid, but you can't put a price on safety ;) As a random aside, the first time I rode with the Lucky Lid, I almost came a cropper with a tram. So I consider the helmet good luck that nothing happened to me!
