Icon Reign Waterproof Boots for Women and Men A sturdy, light weight, nice looking touring boot. But are they waterproof? As my husband can attest, I’m something of a gear collector. I have a whole section in my closet dedicated to riding jackets and pants. There are 4 helmets sitting on the shelf and so …

Icon “Anthem Blender” Fabric/Leather Gloves The Icon Anthem Blender gloves are also new for 2015. This is the third and final pair in this brief “Too Light for Summer” look at ultra-lightweight motorcycle riding gloves. To be perfectly blunt, it’s difficult to recommend the Icon Anthem Blender gloves for any type of serious street riding. The gloves have …

Fire and Water: It’s Elemental! Take your basic Icon Airmada helmet, pump it up to levels previously unknown in motorcycle-land and you have the Icon Airmada Elemental. The Airmada has been a very popular helmet for Icon, offering a lot of go for not much dough. It’s available in solid colors and a cornucopia of …

Icon Announces the Airframe Statistic April  24, 2014 (Press release edited by webBikeWorld.com) – The Icon Airframe Statistic (photos below) is a radical design that lists the percentage of impact areas on a full-face helmet. The numbers apparently come from the COST-327 helmet study “Motorcycle Safety Helmet Test Procedures – Interim Report Manuscript” in February 1998. From …

Icon PDX vs. Teknic Tornado Motorcycle Gloves This is a comparison of inexpensive (sub-$60) textile waterproof gloves for cold weather riding: the Icon PDX vs. Teknic Tornado. There’s a clear winner here…but only if you’re counting features. That feature leader unfortunately has a fatal flaw though: a leaky thumb. It could be just a rare …

Icon “Variant” Motorcycle Helmet Review The Icon Variant is comfortable, with better than average air flow through the top vents and excellent visibility. It’s my favorite of all the “Enduro” styled helmets I’ve worn so far. Adventure Touring motorcycle sales have continued to increase in many countries around the world, according to reports. That’s mostly …

Icon Accelerant Boots Review A reasonably priced waterproof boot that is comfortable but doesn’t really stand out from its peers. A protective and comfortable motorcycle boot that excels at being both protective and comfortable can be a difficult item to find. There are numerous reviews on webBikeWorld that back up this statement. A couple of …

Icon Hooligan 54 Women’s Jacket Review The Icon Hooligan 54 is a fun — even a little flashy — women’s mesh jacket for hot days on the bike. An insulated, water-resistant liner warms it up for versatility, and CE-approved elbow and shoulder armor are necessities in case of the unexpected. I think leather offers the …

Icon Tarmac Ventilated Motorcycle Boots Review Very comfortable on and off the motorcycle and surprisingly comfortable for walking. The Icon Tarmac boots also feature good air flow. They have a “no-lace” design, which makes them easy to slide on and off. The Kochmann Scout boots are our short motorcycle boots benchmark. With a good combination of protection …

Ixon “RS King” Motorcycle Gloves Review Thick supple leather, big honkin’ gauntlets and a reasonable price make these a winner. I think we found the perfect replacement for Rick’s fabled original Teknic Violator gloves! The Ixon RS King gloves review is Part IV of a five-part Ixon motorcycle clothing review series. The final installment will cover …

Ixon “Courageous” Jacket Review For those who like the simple approach, the Courageous is a no-frills waterproof jacket with retro styling, armor, back padding and a comfortable insulating liner. Ixon motorcycle clothing and products are distributed in many regions of the world and the brand is very well known in Europe.  There’s an Ixon distributor …

Icon Strongarm 13 Jacket Review The Icon Strongarm 13 is a very cool “custom” jacket. It has over-the-top staying but it’s actually very comfortable, includes vents and even armor! Don’t get scared guys — the Strongarm 13 really is a men’s jacket, but #13 was lucky for me. The jacket wasn’t supposed to be mine, but …

Icon Airframe Motorcycle Helmet Review Icon has been around for only a few years, but they’ve had an extraordinary impact on the motorcycle industry. Their edgy “street/stunt” styling pushed the envelope of motorcycle fashion, and everyone else has seemingly been playing catch-up. You can see the influence of Icon’s trendsetting style by taking a look …

Icon Mainframe Helmet Icon Helmets are relatively new, having only appeared within the last couple of years, along with other Icon branded products. The edgy Icon ads have appeared in just about all of the motorcycle print magazines in the U.S.A., but apparently the products are not available in the U.K. or other parts of …

Icon “Merc” Gloves A few weeks ago, we published our review of the Marsee “Primatista Gaunto” Race Gloves and I proclaimed them as my new favorite. This was after previously declaring that the Held Ninja was my favorite pair of motorcycle gloves; and the Teknic Violators prior to that. Call me erratic, inconsistent or mercurial, but I call it adaptable. This only …

Gloves of the BORG Mad Max was a wuss. We now know that the Borg are the most bad-ass life forms in the Universe. Well, if you’ve ever wondered what kind of gloves the Borg wear for a motorcycle ride, you’re looking at them! The styling of these Icon TiMax gloves is obviously what hits you first. The styling …

Heavy-Duty Mesh for Summer You have to give a lot of credit to Icon. After all, they busted in to a market jam-packed with motorcycle clothing brands from A to Z and beyond. Yet they’ve managed to mix it up pretty nicely. Icon sort of just appeared out of nowhere a couple of years ago with a …
