Icon Gear

Is it me or do u guys think Icon's gears are made for squids? Bling helmets and gloves that I do not think any real rider would wear except for a gixxer squid. I just received Motorcyclist and once again the bought about have the mag for their advertising. Maybe I am just pissed that this magazine sold itís subscribers out, again.

I have two of the MOTORHEAD jackets and the superduty boots and they perform flawlessly. I'm about as far as you can get from a squid. I do agree that those cheesy ti-max gloves are silly as well as some of the decorations on the jackets.. The MOTORHEAD jacket is pretty plain in comparison.
the quality of the jackets is on par with anything I've ever owned though.


the Gixxer comment only makes you look a little squidly yourself

well i got the Icon Skull rubberized helmet & the Icon ballitic Ti summer jacket (it only has Icon written on the front with Ti plates on the shoulder.

The helmet isn't top notch like my Shoei or Suomy & the jacket is only a few month's old & i just snapped a button off the right wrist area.

I like my joe rocket appereal made much better.

Shit does that make me a squid than

I bought the daytona jacket for my wife to wear, and its top notch.

Burner helmet I crashed worked well, too...

I have the ICON super duty boots in black for the short trips when I'm not fully suited.....but thats rare. Some of their stuff looks blingy, but some of its good. I've heard that the Ti-max gloves (beyond their bling effect) are terrible for scratching paint and anything else they come in contact with.

Everything else I have is Alpinestar and I love it.

And I would like to say that I loved my Burner helmet...

However I wouldn't get caught dead in the Burner Helmet, jacket, and gloves...
