True Inspiration

This was the drawing that started it all for me. It's drawn by a designer named Kenny Safford - the O.G. of modern moto design. My mom found it in a magazine (Popular Mechanics I think) and gave it to me. I remember just staring at this drawing and thinking - this is what I want to do with my life. I want to design motorcycle gear. So I went back to school, got a degree in Industrial Design, and dreamed of creating my own street motorcycle brand. Eleven years later Icon was released to market. I hope someday one of my products inspires someone the way this sketch still inspires me. -Kurt

Field Armor "Bullet Proof" Vest

To the guys at Icon:

I recently had a not so nice encounter with the front end of  a Toyota. To make a long story short I flew over the top of the car, at least that's what the witnesses told me, and landed flat on my back. What the paramedics called a "bullet proof vest" saved my back! I ended up with a broken thumb and a broken rib - needless to say I'm way better off than my bike! Thanks guys!
