PRO GuIDe ICON Airframe Pro helmets Exclusively distributed in Europe by Parts Europe, the ICON Airframe Pro was first launched in 2015. The shell’s unique design for the angle of attack has attracted a lot of riders of sportsbikes like Shaun Anderson, who raced the most iconic of all road races, the Isle of Man TT. For 2017 ICON say their designers have created another new generation of colourways and graphics “that take the ICON Airframe Pro to a new level”. Described as a response to the higher rearsets and lower clipons that characterise the popular “modern riding position”, there are two shells (FRP composite and Carbon), four shell sizes and a dual-density EPS liner made from two separate ventilation channelled liners in expanded polystyrene for maximum impact absorption and force dissipation. The nine air intakes and seven exhaust ports deliver comprehensive ventilation, and the fully adjustable 5-piece HydraDry liner is available in several sizes and three different thicknesses.

With enough capacity to hold a XXL full-face helmet, they have “an elegant design and innovative shapes”. Its structural frame is said to give more rigidity and seal to make them lighter than other cases of similar characteristics.
