Icon Alliance GT Rubatone Helmet
Yes it’s back, the midnight creature called Alliance Dark, this time equipped with a Dropshield for easy getaways. Imagine how jealous your friends will be when they see you drop the shield and transform into a super hero from the future. Well we can’t guarantee the hero part, but at least you’ll look good trying.
The Alliance GT adds a little bit of Top Gun to the classic Icon Alliance Helmet. Anyone who rides every day is familiar with the two-shield two-step. A dark shield to block the glaring sun of the morning commute is swapped out for clear shield on the way back. The Alliance GT kills this do-si-do with one fell swoop; rather one swipe to drop down a tinted inner sun shield. Beyond this clear (tinted) upgrade, the Alliance GT features all of the perks of the proven Alliance ranging from great ventilation coupled with a moisture wicking interior lining to a DOT / ECE safety rating.

- the helmet is too tight for my ears, I have average size ears and the helmet is just squishing the life out them... in the beginning I thought it will "be broken" after a few rides, but it keeps bugging me after long rides to the point where my ears hurt. and oh yeh- forget about trying to fit BT speakers ( I tried..)
- the helmet presses on my forehead to the point that I can't ride over 45 min without pain. I have an oval head shape but never experienced this with any other helmet (been riding for 25 + years and many helmets)
- the yellow mirror coating on the sun visor came off after I tried cleaning a smashed bug off of it!
- the closing mechanism includes a small pin to keep the visor shut, it is hard to operate and sometimes requires holding the helmet with one hand and opening the visor with the other.
- good ventilation
- looks cool
I would not recommend this helmet to anyone... there are many great choices at this price point. I have to admit that for luck of better judgment, I fell for the cool "looks" of this helmet. Lesson learned
