Brand Name AGV
Price 190
Year Purchased 2013


This is a "dual sport" helmet, an off-roader transformed for road use; without the compromises.

Really good construction, very light (relatively), made with carbon fiber, Kevlar and fiberglass shell (~1650g size large). It is a very comfortable fit, with good balance too. It's also quiet as the peak has a low-lift design that actually works, no noticable fluttering at all even at motorway speeds. the peak is also long enough to give decent shading. Great air vents that flood the helmet when you want it and don't leak water in when it rains.

The big surprise and probably the reason I love it more than anything else is that the field of vision is huge, especially the peripheral vision at the sides.

Even as a glasses wearer who has enjoyed the convenience of flip lids for years - I still prefer this lid!

I have this helmet in carbon fibre, I like the look and the fit but that's about all. The main issue is the visor, no pin lock so it fogs up all the time. The visor is supposed to be anti fog coated but it makes no difference at all. Just as frustrating is the constant water leak from the middle of the visor in heavy rain! I talked to the AGV technical guru at the Milan show, he admitted they have had issues with these helmets and are trying to iron them out!
So there you have it from a man that has one and wouldn't buy another.

I'd buy this lid again in a heartbeat, although I could be tempted by the better looking big brother AGV AX8 DUAL EVO GT!
