I am an owner of an Airframe helmet. It is a well-ventilated helmet as far as helmets go. I live in Kentucky; the summers are hot -- sometimes triple-digit, and very humid. The winters are cold, often below freezing. I am an all-weather, all-season rider, and this helmet is my preferred one in all seasons but winter. The ventilation is so good that it can't really be blocked out, and I switch to a regular HJC with an added fog sticker on my shield to prevent fog.

The ICON helmet will fog under the right conditions, but for most fair-weather riders it should be just fine. It might fog in the rain if the air hitting it is cold enough. The helmet is light, but I think the actual shell size increases for size of the helmet, but this may be different for newer models (mine is a 2006).

To answer another remark, the helmet isn't loud under normal driving conditions, but I would highly recommend ear plugs for long distance/high speed trips (especially interstate) if you want to keep the vents open. You should be able to hear your bike under every other condition (and I have a Suzuki cruiser, not the loudest pig in the pen either).

All in all, this is my favorite helmet of all the ones I've owned, and I would definitely buy another one. It has been worth the money, and the colors are really eye-catching. I chose a bright pink helmet, and to date I have not been involved in any accidents. I think I owe this to the helmet's high visibility. I also chose pink, and will probably always choose a more feminine design, because they are unique and in my experience, less likely to be stolen off the bike.

I was very interested in this information, very will written. Answered all my questions and made me think of new ones. I really am not a fan of helmets but I would like to try this one out. The price is in the ball park. Thank you.

Thank you so much for the information on the Airframe style helmets. I've been looking at the Icon Airframe Siren helmet but was unsure because it looked heavier than the Scorpion full face helmet I currently have. The information provided has been most helpful in helping me decide whether or not to purchase the above mentioned helmet. It sounds like a winner so I will definitely be acquiring that helmet shortly. Thanks again!

Just wondering about the anti-fog capabilities of the face shield. I'm currently in the market for a new helmet and was convinced by a salesman at Femmoto 2007 that Scorpion had the best anti-fog shield available. For that reason, I have been planning to get a Scorpion.
