It is kind of’ cool to wear the decal of a fictional Japanese outer-space robot on your lid. The fiberglass, aramid, carbon fiber and dyneema composite shell is both Snell M2005 and DOT approved. The ‘Prolock’ secure face-shield lock system, allows security and safety as well as quick changing of the view-screen. A unique dorsal vent gives extra ram-air input, aiding ventilation, whilst huge rear exhaust outlets route warm air out. A removable, shaped exhalation deflector helps to prevent face-shield fog, and the detachable chin curtain prevents unwanted turbulence swirling inside the helmet. A unique ,low, chin air-input vent system, allows just the right amount of fresh air to inflow.

Pros and Cons
As with a large proportion of Icon helmets, the noise levels coming in through the lid are relatively high. Icon helmets have always seemed to have had a higher level of noise than most brands. The Icon Domain 2 Shado is no exception to this, but that said, some riders are less sensitive to road noise than others, in fact some thrive on it. It is a large helmet too, but as it’s so well aerodynamically balanced this doesn’t present any problems at all; just gives extra protection.
It has an excellent venting system and air flow, preventing fogging up in most situations, even below freezing. Helmet stability, especially when on the highway, is great, with little or no buffeting, even in quite windy weather, at speeds up to 120 mph. Helmet has a bright, sharp look to it, both decal and shape wise and has a wide viewing area, with a good peripheral vision aspect. Replacement parts are easily available. There is a relatively high noise level.
Why you should buy it
This helmet is a well-designed and balanced product. It is eminently safe, with a well contoured comfort and if a trifle louder than some, the feel imparted by its acoustic balance is actually well-suited to many riders. It has great value level too, being worth a deal more than the present price.
A streamlined look with cool dorsal fin and graphics, aren’t all the Icon Domain 2 Shado Helmet is about. It is very comfortable indeed, has high safety ratings and remains fog free better than most. What more do you need?
