    Default New Icon helmet shows where crash impacts are statistically likely to happen

    Apparently this is not a joke. The Icon Airframe Statistic shows the probability of each section of the helmet taking an impact in a crash:

    May convince people who ride with half-helmets to think about upgrading to a full-face...

    Pictures of mashed-u faces don't do it, why would some numbers?

    Nice helmet though :D

    ... "full-face apologists"? There's something wrong with full-face helmets?

    I've actually seen this in a few places by a variety of different companies and did successfully use it to convince my friend she should get a full face (she thought she should get a beanie because it "matched" her cruiser better -.- explaining to her a helmet is for protection not style and that she risked scarring her beautiful face for life put an end to that idea)

    Sold one to a guy at an event in Yamanashi. The same guy then went and got tanked, then rode his bike
    in a display ride. Kept wondering zone he might hit........... Fortunately he rode well and
    managed to get back safely.
