Got this for my wife and she loves it. I was worried about some of the reviews on sizing, & it does go on tight, but it fits very well & is comfortably snug. We ordered per sizing chart. Great quality helmet - amazing price & fast shipping. We have not used it for long trips yet but my wife is not worried & really likes how it fits.
Icon Airmada Salient Helmet.
10 years of pushing the envelope, of going above and beyond. A decade of creating technologically advanced products designed by and for the needs of the street rider: you. The Airmada™ is the end result of all our hard-earned experience in an industry that doesn’t tolerate second best. This is our highest evolution of helmet craftsmanship and you’ll realize this from the moment you take off.
The first thing you’ll notice is the new low profile shell, which now comes in four separate sizes to better fit a variety of riders. The energy absorbing dual-density EPS liner uses our rider-preferred oval head form and comes in a further five sizes to offer a personalized fit without an ounce of wasted space. The effort to reduce the helmet size combines with the tough polycarbonate shell to create a helmet that fits better, is ridiculously light, and still maintains the exclusive WORLD STANDARD of ICON to suit your riding style. With fit and function in mind, the designers of the Airmada™ focused on bringing rider comfort to a new level.
The Airmada™ keeps you cool when the pace heats up. The SuperVent™ system has been completely revamped with even more effective ventilation and exhaust porting across the helmet. The new Ventral Primary™ intake improves the Airmada’s™ cooling airflow in ways other helmets can only dream of, and long nights were spent improving the ergonomics and function of the venting controls. Designed and positioned to make on-the-fly adjustments quick and easy, the Airmada™ is built from the ground up to offer perfect comfort for any riding condition.
Even the shield system has been completely redesigned to give riders the best view of the road ahead. The new Rapid Release™ shield removal system allows you to change an ICON Optics™ shield in a fraction of a second. This cutting-edge system allows you to select the right shield for the conditions, all of which produce an unrivaled distortion-free line of sight to what lies ahead. The ICON® Airmada™ once again sets the standard for the ideal street helmet.

Icon Airmada Helmet Sizing
Helmet Sizing Information.To achieve proper helmet fitment, begin by finding your head circumference size using the method described below. Remember that the helmet sizing you choose should fit around the crown of your head comfortably with no pressure points. The cheekpads should fit firmly around your face. Once your chin strap is fastened, grab the chin bar of the helmet and move it side to side. Your cheeks should move with the helmet, which should not slide across your face. Different thickness cheekpads can be purchased to obtain the perfect fit.
Head Measurement Instructions.Wrap a flexible tape measure around your head approximately one inch above eyebrows and ears. Use this measurement (in either inches or centimeters) to find your helmet size in the chart below.
|XS||6 5/8-6 3/4||20 7/8-21 1/4||53-54|

Sleek design and have got a lot of compliment with it. Definitely a head turner(which rarely happens). Shield doesn't fog up and air flow is phenomenal. Down right the best helmet I've owned in a long time. Don't take my word for it, try it out and see for yourself.
The Airmada is Icon's newest race helmet and was designed to compete at the top levels of motorcycle racing while retaining an affordable price. With seven intake vents and four exhaust ports, Icon has mastered the art of low speed venting, making this motorcycle helmet a great choice for the ever smoldering urban rider. To learn more about the specifics of the Airmada, check out our detailed breakdown on either our Youtube Page or on Jafrum.com.
Salient is a word meaning most noticeable or important. The Salient graphic is fairly simple, especially when compared to some of Icon's other graphics, but is it very clean and very bold. It will certainly stand out in any crowd. The Salient comes in six colors including the blue you see here. It is a classic, techy looking graphic that is almost reminiscent of a certain 80's movie about a kid who gets sucked into a video game. The finish on this graphic is very well done. The lines in the graphic all complement the lines of the features of the helmet. The lines of the graphic along the side flow with the lines of the shield. The lines along the top and back flow perfectly with the lines of the vents and spoiler. And, so on .They've definitely put some work into this graphic despite its simple nature.
