ICON’s Variant Pro Moto Helmet Now Boasts A Unique Handmade Finish

Jun 11, 2020

Category: Gear

When it comes to aggressive, street-faring motorcycle gear, ICON is relatively unparalleled. The urbanist proprietor has made a name for itself among the two-wheeled world’s most prominent gear manufacturers, due to its unique design terminology, efficient architecture, and eye-catching shapes. Now, one of its most popular helmets has received the “Quicksilver” treatment.

The reputation of ICON’s Variant Pro helmet far precedes it, making it somewhat baffling that the company hadn’t admitted it into its Quicksilver line at an earlier date. Despite the confusion, it’s finally here, taking on various coats of hand-applied silver paint before undergoing a strenuous hand-distressing process. As a result, no two helmets are alike, giving each example its very own finish, patina, and character. If you’re not familiar with the Variant Pro helmet, it’s one of the brand’s most elaborate, thanks to its unique fiberglass, Dyneema, and carbon matrix, minimal lift characteristics, a fog-free Variant Pro™ shield, and five-piece sweat-wicking Hydradry™ interior. You can grab the new Variant Pro “Quicksilver” on ICON’s web-store for $325.

Purchase: $325
