Icon Airframe Helmet

Posted on: September 3rd, 2013 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

The Airframe is Icon’s top-of-the-line helmet featuring an advanced tri-composite shell and a unique ventilation system that gave the Airframe its name.

The Airframe’s namesake ventilation system is designed to provide optimal airflow regardless of how fast you’re travelling. The Airframe features large, angled intake ports that force air directly onto the head and through the helmet. The special design of the intake vents allows air to penetrate easily at all times, even without the windforce generated by high speeds. When riding in an Airframe, your head will stay cool even when you’re stuck in slow moving urban traffic.

The composite shell is what takes the Airframe above and beyond the Icon Airmada and Alliance helmets. It incorporates fiberglass for sturdiness and impact resistance, Dyneema for abrasion resistance, and carbon fiber for strength, impact deflection, and impact distribution. The Airframe is also Icon’s lightest shell – weighing in at about 3.7 pounds for the standard Airframe in size medium. The Airframe Carbon edition is lighter still, and at about 3.2 pounds for a size medium it weighs approximately the same as Bell’s first-rate track helmet, the Star Carbon.
