Icon Alliance Rubatone Helmet
We got our Icon Alliance Rubatone helmet by somewhat of a default. We went shopping for helmets, looked at most of the dealerships in town, some didn’t have much stock, or the sizes where all small and medium…. hmm that sucks… need a helmet to ride.
So as a last resort we stopped into the Harley/Honda dealer, he had one dual sport model left…it fit, but was too snug… we continued looking and found the Icon, tried it on fits, Heather tried on another one it also fit her and really liked the colour and the rubberized texture of the helmet so we bought them…whoo hoo we got helmets, time to go riding.
This helmet is full of ventilation, anti fog etc… the specifications are listed here
- Injection molded polycarbonate shell for strength
- Long oval headform
- Fully removable/washable Hydradry interior
- Quick-change for-free proshield with sideplates
- Prolock shield locking system
- Wind tunnel tested and refined
- Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling
- Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup
- Removable molded breath deflector reduces shield fogging
- Chin venting system reduces shield fogging
So what does all the features mean to me….. COMFORTABLE, after wearing this helmet for a few hours it still feels light and cool, I ride with all the vents open. The front and top vents wide open and my face shield open just a crack (the best anti fog I found).
A great feature of this helmet is the liner, it is removable , just snaps into place. and replacement pads can be ordered via your local Icon retailer… bonus! (As I needed to replace mine with a smaller set of pads to fit my comfort level.)
The flat black rubbery texture of this helmet not helps the slippery factor it is also a breeze to clean as well… big thumbs up!
With the amount of kilometres we put on the bikes I can say we are both really happy with this helmet choice. Price was good, the vents work as vents, you can feel the air, and its not an itchy annoyance that you can’t wait to get off your head… we would highly recommend this Icon Rubatone to anyone, we like it![phpzon keywords=”Icon Rubatone helmet” num=”2″ country=”US” trackingid=”stinsoadvent-20″ templatename=”default” paging=”true”] [phpbay keywords=”Icon Rubatone helmet” num=”2″ siteid=”1″ sortorder=”BestMatch” templatename=”default” paging=”true”]
We added a communication set to our helmets and video cams but more on that in another post.
