Icon Alliance Matte Black.

Great all-around helmet on a budget.

Icon Airmada with the sensory graphic. Graphic is neon green with glow in the dark eyeballs all over. As stated before, it is a race fit and snug on and off, but once on I find it very quiet. I have it paired with an Interphone f5 headset and the speakers fit extremely well in the ear wells. Have taken phone calls while cruising the superslab at 75- 80 mph and have no trouble hearing and folks on the other end dont even know I'm onthe bike.

I had an Icon Moto Domain 2 and absolutely loved it. So comfortable.

Looking to get an Icon Variant once I complete my bike. Though one of my buddies says the visors catch wind like crazy at highway speeds...

Default Shoei GT-AIR

I've had Shoei helmets since I started riding. They fit my head shape better than any others I tried, and I loved the solid construction: Nothing felt cheap, flimsy, or ill-fitted.

My last helmet was an XR-1100 that I retired after getting hit from behind and thrown off my bike at an intersection . It was almost due for replacement anyway, so insurance came to the party on the new lid. The GT-AIR is a great fitting, very quiet helmet with what looks to be good ventilation (it's wintertime here, so I won't worry about that for another few months).

My only gripe has come as a result of fitting a bluetooth communication kit specially designed for the helmet (Sena 10u). The remote control on the handle-bar is brilliant and this headset communicates wonderfully with my phone and GPS, but the microphone/control console fitment deforms the left chin-bar of the helmet JUST enough to make locking the faceplate fully down, a real challenge. I'm waiting to see if that fixes itself when all the bits bed into the helmet liner better, but that's my only complaint about this lid. The interior visor is a stroke of genius: No more fumbling for sunglasses on the side of the road when riding at dawn and dusk.

Wow, most of you guys have some expensive lids. I have a Vega that cost a bit less than $100. I bought this one because it has the same inner visor that Absysn-thesis mentioned. Actually, this is the main thing that keeps the helmet on my head. I wear glasses and the dark visor lets me have both sharp vision and sun protection.

I suppose that works for those with currency reserves. I try to remember that I'm only here temporarily, regardless of what I do. Frankly, the thought that my end might come on my bike pleases me more than any other situation I envision.
