I'm sure like me, a lot of you have seen the Icon helmets and have been intrigued by the cool flat finishes and what not. I went to the bike shop last weekend and they had 3 or 4 different ones. Very cool looking in person! I put them on and was immediately turned off by the padding. It was horrible! Rather than feeling like on giant padding around your face, it felt like little round sections all over your cheeks (if that makes any sense). I know it's all personal preference, and I don't mean to tick off any icon helmet users in the forum but that's just my 2 cents.
