Icon One Thousand Gear Lineup for 2012!

Icon Motosports is releasing an all new line of gear. The new Icon line is called Icon 1000. Why 1000? According to Icon, it is the empirical number that forms the boundary between boy and man, the displacement threshold between expert and novice. Icon has used only the finest armor, leather and textile to create these pieces they call “their finest collection of motorcycle riding apparel they’ve ever created”.

Icon One Thousand was just a bunch of concept sketches in a notebook back in 2004. Well, 8 years later those sketches became reality bringing to life Icon’s most advanced line ever created. This line does not single anyone out, if anything it makes you stand out!

“The ICON 1000 line is an offshoot of our creative process – our operation Archangel. We received no official clearance. No permission, no focus groups, no industry consultants. We just thought it up and did it. The balls of this company. Eventually they will send someone up river for us, but until then, we’ll continue beyond the reach of their timid mentality.”

The Icon crew came into this world when the aging hippies started to fade out. They were raised on black rifles, Armageddon, and BattleTruckin’. In 1982 they just discovered girls, guns, and CR250’s. Icon 1000 is a spawn of these ideas and more from adolescent minds, bringing together the image of Survivalist magazine, bootlegged VHS of Mad Max, and the constant imagined threat from a 5 kiloton airburst.

The new Icon One Thousand Product line Up will be released in Spring of 2012!

Icon Variant Battlescar Helmet
Gazing down the barrel reveals a clarity of purpose. A single-minded mission devoid of right or wrong. The Variant Battlescar understands this unequivocally. The raw composite shell, tinted in variegated shades of tan or green, is truly unique amongst its contemporaries. A natural beauty with a penchant for three round bursts.

Icon Variant Construct Helmet
Stripped of graphics and devoid of undue flair – the Construct wanders the earth in opaque minimalism. It is purity of form amongst the flamenco masses. It is truth of materials amid the technicolor hordes. In a world where no two helmets are created equal, the Variant Construct and it’s raw shell stand alone.

Icon 1000 Chapter Jacket
Painstakingly constructed from the absolute finest Brazilian cowhide, the Chapter jacket is available with two unique finishes. The black and grey colorways feature a drum-dyed antique leather with a refined matte finish. The brown colorway features an aniline-dyed natural grain treated with a hand-applied waxed leather finish. In the world of leather garments – it gets no bet- ter. Internally the Chapter packs a full complement of D3O® CE approved impact protectors: shoulders, elbows, and a CE approved back protector. Custom produced oversized YKK® zippers, with a tactical black oxide finish, provide the ultimate security of closure while safeguarding your position. Intricately detailed removable vest liner provides core warmth without adverse bulk. No matter what type of bike you choose to ride, no matter your mission, the Icon 1000 Chapter will see your objectives met.

Icon 1000 Federal Womens Jacket
Hand cut and machine sewn from the finest Brazilian cowhide, the Federal jacket is available with two unique finishes. The black jacket features a drum-dyed antique leather finish with a refined matte finish. The red Federal features an aniline-dyed natural grain treated with a hand-applied waxed leather finish. The pattern was developed over years of testing for maximum performance on bike, and maximum impact off. Internally the Federal packs a full complement of D3O® CE approved impact protectors: shoulders, elbows, and a CE approved back protector. Oversized YKK® zippers, with a tactical black oxide finish, provide the secure closure. Removable insulated vest liner provides additional core warmth when needed. The Federal jacket, the professionals’ choice.

Icon 1000 Shorty Branded Jacket
Though lacking the conventional silhouette of a jacket, it never lacks for attitude or legitimacy. From its internal D3O® CE approved back protector to its top-grain drum-dyed Brazilian leather, the Shorty always maintains a tactical advantage. And then there’s the fit; we developed the pattern to work equally well for metric or V-twin applications. Whether reaching for 9˚clip-ons or 12″ over apes, the strategically engineered mechanical stretch panels flex with the rider, allowing complete freedom of movement. And in the end, freedom is what this jacket is all about.

Icon 1000 Elsinore Boot
The Elsinore’s five-strap, alloy-buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the Icon street specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A medial entry zipper, allocated from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel. The Elsinore, old-school MX reinterpreted for the urban sprawl.

Icon 1000 Rimfire Glove
The Rimfire is old-world styling, top-shelf materials and cutting edge technology. The Gunn cut pattern imbues the Rimfire with a sophisticated rancher silhouette of years gone by. Constructed of select drum-dyed French cowhide, the Rimfire embodies the meaning of functional elegance. Pre-tensioned elastic in the palm reduces bunching. Integrated D3O® knuckle armor and a cadre of metal palm rivets provide a roadworthy pedigree. The Rimfire is a riding glove that captures the fortitude and grace of a more civilized era.

Icon Stryker Battlescar Vest
If you show up for a fair fight, you are not prepared. The Stryker vest lives by this creed. Its CE certified back armor and D30® padding command respect at the highest levels. Plastic chest armor and MOLLE webbing complete the package. Executed in a tactical covert green, the Battlescar is the armor of choice for the modern road warrior.

For those of you wanting to show your love of Icon off the bike, they offer a casual line to sport around.

Here’s a Customer Review From: User qorray

“I just got my Shoei Neotec 2/24.  For comparison the only other modular helmet I’ve owned is the Nolan N102 for the last 3 years.  Great first ride today, probably 50 miles city/highway.  The Neotec is a lot lighter than the N102.  Wind noise is also greatly reduced, this helmet is quiet.  Medium fit my head like a glove. The US version will come with the D-ring, which is what I got.  I’m indifferent as to the buckle or D-ring.  I did get used to the micro lock on the N102.  One word for ventilation on the Neotec… Awesome, no comparison to the N102.  Finish for both helmets is excellent.  Price is expensive but you get what you pay for.  I would have tried the Nolan N104 before the Neotec except Nolan put the internal visor switch on the bottom of the helmet were I would put my scala rider G4, mic wont reach.  Neotec was about 200 more.  Well worth the money in my opinion.  5 stars in my opinion for my first Shoei, would buy again.”

Nolan N104 Helmet Video Review!

The Nolan N104 Helmet is the next generation of modular helmets offered by Nolan Helmets.  The N103 had been popular for riders who wanted a flip up helmet design, and the new N104 has some new features that will make it an even better choice.  The new Nolan N104 features a new chinbar design which leaves the helmet with a narrower shell, meaning less bulk on top of your head.  The Centromatic chin bar lock on the Nolan N104 requires two simultaneous actions to open, meaning less chance of the chinbar opening in an accident.  The Airbooster ventilation system in the Nolan N104 modular helmet is designed for maximum airflow with minimum wind noise.  The eyeport has also been substantially widened for excellent visibility out of the helmet, and there is a new internal sun visor system as well.  The new VPS sun visor is anti-fog and anti-scratch coated to keep your vision clear, and it also has an all new mechanism.  A slider at the base of the helmet easily deploys the tinted shield, while a push button quickly and easily retracts it.  A Pinlock shield is also included with the Nolan N104, further enhancing your ability to see – even in challenging conditions.  Lastly, the new Nolan N104 is also factory ready for installation of the new Nolan B4 N-Com system.  If you ride in groups or with a passenger the N-Com system is a great way to stay in touch and further enjoy the ride.  Check out the new Nolan N104 Modular Helmet today!

Here is a customers first impression:

I was able to test fit this helmet at the International Motorcycle Show.
Initial response was this thing is light in comparison to my N102. Significantly lighter.
Fit was amazing in a large, absolutely no hot spots, fit my head perfectly.
The chin bar felt 100 smoother in operation, both swing up and down and latching and unlatching.
New features, you can lock the chin bar up for 3/4 helmet riding, and the sunvisor now locks down, and has a 1 button retraction feature. This one is on my list for replacing the N102!
