My new hat!

  1. I have been looking at new helmets for about 3 months; I am kinda picky. I went with a new helmet by Icon called a "Domain Perimiter" I did not care for Icon's early helmets, but this one is much better made. You can check them out at www.rideicon.com and there are a few places in Boise that should start stocking them soon.
    I owned my Shoei RF900 for the past 4 years, and this new Icon fits just as well, is lighter and breaths WAY better. If you look at the air intakes, you will see why!

    Anyway, what do you think?[​IMG]
     
  2. Nice lid. I've been looking for a new lid too. Do you ride on the freeway at all? because my big question is, "Is it quiet??"

    That's going to be my big selling point, I'm looking for a lid that's comfortable, quiet, and obviously safe.
     

  3. My Arai is pretty quiet.

  4. I would not say it is quiet, but I wear ear plugs when I ride so it is fine with me. I can hear just fine with my "nerf" ear plugs in. But to compare, the new Icon Domain is about the same as my Shoei RF900 for noise level.

    And considering how much better the Icon air flow is, I thought it would be alot lowder than it is.

    So for the money, the Icon is nice! The other helmets I was looking at were double the price!!! (Shark, Suomy)

    Yes I have a $700 head, but my income does not accomidate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  5. I think ICON does a good job with some of their gear. I was very close to buying a Mainframe a few times but it didn't fit right. Nice Helmet IW. My friend has had three. Two held up nicely in crashes and he's on his third one. :angel:

    That is a good looking lid. The Icon helmets are actually manufactured by HJC. Its nice to know that an experienced company is behind the structural integrity of these helmets. You get the Icon styling (some may not like it but you've got to admit, Icon is making it cool again for street riders to wear gear) with the HJC quality.
     
  7. Nice!!! now if it only came in scarlet and gray :neener:....come on cool weather...

    Nice lid Wolverine! It looks like you have some kind of ram jet thing going on there. Does it make you go faster? Maybe just your head. Does look like it has good cooling.

    Oh, and Whiplash, Scarlet and grey are just a rattle can away... :8):
