Icon Variant Thriller Helmet: The Uncivilized Within


Who is your internal self? It’s a question worth asking. No matter what our outward appearance or the requirements that we face to fit in with “civilized society,” who we are within is the key. Perhaps you are a sophisticated, well-to-do royal who likes tea and caviar. Maybe you are a kangaroo who likes to hop around and play in the dirt. The possibilities are as endless as stars in the night sky.

Icon Variant Thriller Motorcycle HelmetIf, by chance, your inner self happens to be a wild, raging, veracious night beast who crushes skulls and slobbers over everything in sight… then the Icon Variant Thriller Helmet is made for you. As it is built upon the blueprint of the highly popular Icon Variant Helmet, this graphic comes to life at night with glow in the dark styling and a full moon theme to match. For the times when you are not driving by the light of the moon (and your headlights of course), this lid also ships with a Dark Smoke shield that adds to the mystique and compliments the wild streak within.

If you are looking for a standout street helmet with a graphic that speaks to the ravenous animal within, then look no further than the Icon Thriller Variant.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Icon Airmada Graphics: Unapologetically Unusual


Well, for anyone who knows Icon you know how they do… loud, vibrant, in your face design. They are unapologetic and unbridled in their exuberance for such things. They are committed to what they do and are definitely not averse to going out on the proverbial limb.

Icon Airmada Elemental Motorcycle HelmetThe new Icon Airmada Elemental Helmet takes two of the most powerful forces on the planet and has them compete for shell space on your lid. As part of the five foundational elements (some would argue four, but we are going with Aristotle’s interpretation here), both water and fire are key players in Earth’s story and can certainly be a big part of yours as well. With the right-hand side of the helmet displayed as a churning surf and the left-hand side being that of an inferno, the competition clashes right down the middle for a balanced look and wild swirling effect.

Icon Airmada Sugar Motorcycle HelmetWho doesn’t like sugar? It is delicious. Though with the complete absence of cookies, cupcakes, or candy of any kind it seems Icon had another idea in mind. The Icon Airmada Sugar Helmet prominently displays a wicked entanglement of vines and roses that would be enough to lure anyone towards this lid. Once they are close, the diamond eyes of sorceress lure you further… she seems so nice… oh wait… she is holding a skull… umm… this can’t be good… or maybe it will be… that part is up to you.

Icon Airmada Ganesh Motorcycle Helmet
Quick… a huge, rampaging, foul-tempered elephant is charging you with four arms and a whole lot of sabers… what do you do? If your answer is hop on your dragon, make friends with Ganesh (the elephant) and go on an awesome motorcycle trip, then the new Icon Airmada Ganesh Helmet might just be for you. Lots of color, deep contrast, and controlled chaos are all prominent in this wild lid… if you can handle it.

Icon Airmada Miscreant Motorcycle HelmetNothing good ever comes from raven skulls and serpents. Like, for real. That is the stuff for real hoodlums. In looking at the Icon Airmada Miscreant Helmet, they leave no question as to the the mindset of the rider within. Even if they did, the bone clenching fists, skulls, and strange creatures throughout kind of make their point. This helmet is as devious as the day is long.

Icon Airmada Miscreant Helmet Review:


Icon Airmada Thriller Motorcycle HelmetHowl at the moon and see what happens. You probably haven’t tried. The new Icon Airmada Thriller Helmet understands this and does not shy away. Prominently displayed on the back, the full moon casts its mystique like a spotlight of creepy magic. With the ravenous night-animal on the prowl, slobber and rage flowing in all directions, this helmet is for the rider who is not afraid to bite back.

Icon Airmada Thriller Helmet Review:



That is Icon. They make graphics that can not be missed. If you are a rider of the same ilk, then one of these helmets could very well be for you.

Icon Overlord Riding Pants: Denim For Days


Denim is cool. It always has been. From movie stars to cowboys to country singers and more, a good pair of jeans definitely stands out. The new Icon Overlord Jeans have kept that at the forefront.

Icon Overlord Motorcycle Riding PantsThese jeans are actually not jeans at all in the traditional sense. They are riding pants through and through and represent the next generation of gear. Built from a sturdy fourteen ounce denim and equipped with Aramid panels in the knee and seat. To go a step further, however, they have also included molded external TPU knee plastics to go along with the D3O impact protectors that are located internally. All of this in a relaxed fit allows for comfort and mobility both on the bike and off.

Icon Overlord Denim Jeans Review:


Searching for the right pair of jeans can be a task. It is a big commitment and the style that is chosen says a lot about the wearer. For people who like octane, lots of cc’s, and the feel of accelerating through the apex, the Overlord Riding Pants are for you.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Icon Overlord Textile Jacket: Welcome To The Party


“There is just so much stuff!” That is a common reaction to motorcyclists who are just beginning to look for new gear. With ranges in materials, styles, and of course price, sometimes it can be difficult to find a place to start.

Icon Overlord Textile Motorcycle JacketThe new Icon Overlord Textile Jacket is an entry-level option that will get riders on the road in a solidly constructed, moto-specific piece of gear that also comes at a great price. Based on the Icon attack fit, which is slimmer and more aggressive in design, this jacket has a sublimated chassis with mesh panels for warm weather ventilation. To extend the usage into cooler weather there is also a removable, insulated vest liner that will work to block wind and retain body heat while on the bike. Another very important feature is that the Overlord Textile will come with D3O impact protectors in the shoulders, elbows, and back so that you are getting extra protection while on the road.

Icon Women's Overlord Motorcycle Jacket

Icon also has a Women’s version of this jacket so as to offer the best fitments for a variety of riders across the board. Proper fitment of any motorcycle gear is key and in many cases Men’s gear tends to not be as attune to more feminine cuts. For this, the Icon Women’s Overlord Jacket comes in nicely. With more of an hourglass shape to it, this jacket arrives with all of the features as the Men’s while retaining a more feminine feel.

Icon Women's Overlord Jacket Review:


For new riders or those just looking to obtain a less aggressively priced option, the Icon Overlord Textile Jackets are definitely worth the time.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Icon Overlord Boots & Gloves: Stay Cool


Hot weather riding calls for some hot weather gear. If you have ever sat in traffic on a summer day with non-ventilated gear, things can get pretty sloppy pretty quick. From your hands to your feet you will be soaked. Thanks to the often agonizing traffic patterns and muggy summers here in Philadelphia, this is something of which I speak with experience. With that in mind, Icon has developed a few things to assist in the comfort of our daily summer commutes.
Icon Overlord Motorcycle Boots
Starting with the feet, the new Icon Overlord Boots offer a mean looking leather chassis that has been augmented with mesh paneling throughout. This is huge in allowing air to get to your feet and keep you cool. The mesh panels on these boots are serious too. They move a lot of air. However, let’s remember that we are on a motorcycle here. Comfort is important, but so is protection. To that end Icon has also been sure to include TPU injection plates at the shin, heel, and ankle as well as an axialmetric steel shank for increased stiffness. In case there was any doubt, these boots have attained a CE-Certification for safety.

Now anyone who has ever paid attention is well-aware that there are some stark differences between the standard foot of a man and that of a woman. Dudes feet just tend to be larger, wider, and with a thicker heel. To allow for the best possible fitment for all riders, the Icon Women’s Overlord Boots have also been released and they are specifically designed for the ergonomics of female riders, yet with all of the same features and comfort as the Men’s version.

Icon Overlord Boots Review:


Icon Overlord Mesh Motorcycle GlovesOn the other end of our extremities are the hands. These are essential in motorcycling, quite obviously. To keep them operating at their best in the heat, the Icon Overlord Mesh Gloves work very well at moving a ton of air throughout. Constructed of molded neoprene, sublimated micromesh, and 3D airmesh throughout the fingers/thumb, these are a very lightweight choice for low-speed street riding. Light protection is available through the TPR hard knuckles while pre-curved fingers and articulated finger gussets work in tandem to increase comfort.

Icon Women's Overlord Mesh Motorcycle Gloves

As with the boots, the Icon Women’s Overlord Mesh Gloves are built to the same specifications as the Men’s version, just with the female rider in mind. Generally slimmer than the Men’s options, these are a great choice for women riders who are searching for something that is designed with moto-specific functionality, yet will keep their hands cooler than a full-leather glove.


Icon Overlord Mesh Gloves Review:


Riding a motorcycle gets pretty warm. It is us and the elements. That is what makes it so fun. To keep yourself cool and reduce sweating while out in the summer, check out the new line of Overlord gloves and boots from Icon.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always...
