Im just thinking about it from a safety issue. Red is more visable.

I'm not a big fan of the Icon lids... though I've never put them on... but I like the silver none... I'd seen the red version before and don't like it at all... but the silver one looks good

I like the looks of the Icon lids, but I have never read anything good about the quality. I was about to spend waaaay too much on a helmet, and then I started reading some reviews and found out that there are some really good AFFORDABLE lids. Just my

This is some interesting reading...

my 2 best friends have both rocked the ICON helmets and loved them with ZERO issues, and considering how "picky" (love ya man if youre reading this!!) they both are, that works for me!!

Great. Glad to finally hear something good. I have been considering the Manic Helmet. I might go ahead and get it.

I like the silver one because the red looks too busy. When you ask "if it's worth it", I think you mean the extra $$ for the artwork compared to a plain helmet. If you take a helmet off your head, it will get scratched. If you can live with scratches on the artwork, get it. If not, get a solid color.

does it protect your head??? if so then go for it.





helmets are all PP rae, but honestly you gotta get something that goes with your bike, and i dont think that mesh's well w/ your setup at all.
