What's good riders? This is Africa here bringing you the scoop on the Icon Airframe Helmet for today’s session of Essential Stuff. There are various graphics to choose from for the Airframe (I have the Infernal), it's light weight, and fits my noggin well, for a reasonable price. Check it out.
First, let’s discuss what’s good. The Icon Airframe Helmet comes with a very durable, comfortable, cushy inner lining. The helmet comes fully assembled in a nice, compact, no fuss package. There aren’t a hundred add-on pieces to worry about. It’s just pop it on and go. And the two large top air vents serve their purpose well in all weather conditions.
My complaints: If you care about how your helmet looks but are clumsy with handling it, then this helmet is not for you. The graphics chip up like a cheap paint job, and the face shield gets easily scratched. You probably noticed in the video that I like to keep the helmet on top of my gas tank. You also probably saw that the area on the helmet touching the axle nut was completely worn off.
Also if you are an avid rider, expect to lose the chin guard within a couple of months. This piece is the only annoying piece of the helmet because it detaches too easily.
However, bottom-line, you can get the Airframe between the price range of $200-$300 bucks. At that price, you get a reliable, comfortable and awesome looking helmet.
Stay tuned for more updates.
