Icon Airmada Candy (Graphic) Lineup

So the Icon Airmada comes new to the party, brings the grain, and refuses to open the front door for the police. He's got his rowdy friends with him (not Hank Williams though) and they all have their own styles. Imagine they are all Airmada helmets.

Dazzleship anyone? The Icon Airmada Stack helmet was the first leaked picture we saw as part of the Brammo project. It's on fire with electricity (is that possible?) it also comes in 6 colors including the Hi-Viz we're showing here.


Icon Airmada Stack Hi-Viz Helmet Review:

The Airmada Sportbike SB1 helmet definitely has "pseudo-mechanical tendrils" in its description. I call that organic gnarliness with a touch of fear and loathing. 6 colors including a sweet orange. It almost hearkens back to an age of Duke Nuke'm.

Icon Airmada Sportbike SB1 Helmet Review:

The Icon Airmada 4 Horsemen helmet is quite the apocalyptic statement - and there isn't even a shot of Dean Malenko on the lid. Think greyscale white-walkers on a graphic sending Jon Snow back to the wall. One color of this bad boy. All ghosted and grey, all the time. The skull on the back is boss.

Icon Airmada Four Horsemen Helmet Review:

Tried and true, the Airmada Gloss Helmet is for those of you who aren't into post apocalypyical-electrified-gnarly-lids. Do you know what this means? You have good taste in a helmet which will vent well and be rock solid at speed. Bravo.

All in all the Airmada is looking to replace the Alliance and with all of the same features but even more umph, we should see a solid push. Looking forward to beating on one (I am an Airmada Rubatone man myself), at first glance the style and features look like a win.

Follow Me on G+

ICON Airmada Helmet Launched!

The ICON Airmada is the next evolution in technical advancements, which the Alliance has been building on for 10 years. The first thing you'll notice is the new low-profile shell, which comes in four separate sizes to better fit a variety of head shapes. The dual-density EPS liner comes in five additional sizes to offer a personalized fit. ICON made an effort to reduce the helmet size and if you combine this with the polycarbonate shell, you've created a helmet that fits better, is absurdly light and still maintains all the standards for which ICON helmets are known.

Bringing function and fit together, the designers of the Icon Airmada Helmet have focused on bringing rider comfort to a new level. The Supervent system has been revamped with better ventilation and exhaust ports. The shield system has been redesigned to expand the eye port and changing out the shield takes a fraction of a second.

Graphics, solids, and H-Viz, oh my! We can't wait to ride in the next iteration from an already progressive company.

Stay tuned for the graphic lineup.

Scorpion VX-R70 Helmet Review

Scorpion VX-R70 Helmet - Solids

The Scorpion VX-R70 is the big brother to the VX-34. It has an intermediate head shape with a new shell, called TCT, which is tri-composite and results in a lighter, stronger shell.  A size medium helmet weighs in at 3.1 oz. Most of the tried and true features you'd expect to find in a dirt helmet from Scorpion exist in the VX-R70: kwickwick liner, and the AirFit system means you can pump up your cheek pads for a custom fit. A tool-free grill can be popped out and easily cleaned. The larger eye-port increases your field of vision. Three new air scoops above the brow and below the visor vent lots of air. This helmet is available in black and in two different graphic versions, the VX-R70 Fragment and the VX-R70 Flux.

Alpinestars Polar Gore-Tex Gloves

The Alpinestars Polar Gore-Tex gloves don't look wintry at a 3/4 length. Instead, they have a sportier appeal and were made to be worn under your jacket sleeve. Constructed of goatskin and a high abrasion fabric, suede reinforcements provide superior durability and grip. These gloves also have high-density padded inserts, a touch screen stylus, and a double wrist closure.

The Alpinestar WR-3 Gore-Tex gloves are made of goatskin and have a full gauntlet that's intended to be worn over your jacket. It's not as heavily insulated as the Tech Road, Jet Road or Polar gloves, but it does have enough insulation on the top of the glove and the sides of the fingers  to serve well as a three season glove. Like the other gloves in the line, it has a visor wipe, knuckle protectors, reflective strips and accordion inserts on the fingers and top of the hand for flexibility. This glove is available in women's as well, the Stella WR-3.

Alpinestars Leather Glove Updates for Late 2012

Rock solid and brand new for this Autumn, Alpinestars brings us two completely new gloves, which are redesigned for hardcore riding, just in time for those crisp fall rides!

Alpinestars GP Pro GlovesThe Alpinestars GP Pro, already a premier and popular glove in the line-up, has implemented a number of improved features. Included in these advancements is K-Tech Kevlar, bringing together Kevlar, leather and foam to create a wall of protection and superior abrasion resistance to the most vulnerable phalange: the pinkie. Kevlar is also used as the inner lining on the top of the hand and thumb. Another new feature is found in the L-shaped PU slider for even more abrasion resistance. Other niceties on the glove include ventilation via an abrasion resistant backhand vent and a patented racing finger bridge (which keeps the little finger in place). This bridge feature also helps eliminate abrasion of your finger and the surrounding exterior seams.  The New GP Pro is available in five colors.

Alpinestars GP Pro Gloves Review:

Alpinestars GP Plus GlovesThe Alpinestars GP Plus is a hair less technical from the GP Pro, but is also a track worthy glove. The new changes to this glove incorporate the addition of the PU palm slider and two new colors. Other attributes of this glove you may already be familiar with include a full grain bovine leather construction, goatskin leather inserts, and DFS Thermo injected finger (and knuckle) protectors. This glove, like the Pro, also has the Alpinestars patented racing finger bridge that prevents finger separation and stops twisting around the fourth finger in the event of a slide. The Plus is available in four colors.

The Alpinestars M10 Air Carbon Gloves are definitely motocross inspired. With carbon protection, they are the original SMX 2 Air Carbon gloves with (of course!) all the Monster DNA added. The combination of leather and a mesh upper, offers durability, abrasion resistance, and comfort. The Carbon fiber knuckles are a great protective feature as well adding a bit of flash to this sub-$80 mesh glove.  The M10 Air Carbon comes in black/green and black/white/green.
