AGV AX-8 Dual EVO Helmet DRock - Oregon Arai has some competition "Its been long considered that Arai has always had the best fit in the helmet market. This is my first AGV and I'd say Arai has some serious competition at nearly half the price. I measured a 22" which put me into a medium according to AGV's sizing chart. Out of the box the crown of the helmet fit me like a glove. My cheeks however were a bit cramped. AGV rep's assured me pads would break in as much as 30%. After two days of commuting with it I am 100% happy. My cheeks are much more comfortable with ever so slight pinching, enough to make me think this is a performance helmet not some cheap off brand. The venting is superb, I like the mouth piece vent with its sliding open/closure. Finally my biggest praise, there is minimal buffeting on the freeway, I can look to the side when changing lanes at speed without my head feeling like its going to be ripped from my body. AGV has a winner, they just earned their newest #1 fan."
AGV Helmets: A Formula for Success
Founded in 1946, the Italian born AGV got its start making leather seats and motorcycle saddles. In 1947, the AGV motorcycle helmet came to life. It was hand-made from a wooden mold. Today, its history in head safety is long and storied. AGV started a loud buzz in 1956 with its jet fighter helmet, based on the helmets worn by jet fighter pilots. In 1967, the company introduced its full-face helmet and then in 1980 AGV introduced a helmet made with DuPont Kevlar fiber.
AGV's relationship with moto is also well known.
AGV helmets protected the heads of Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini - two of the most notable racing greats in history. Rossi won seven MotoGP World Championships and one each in the 250cc World Championship and the 125cc World Championships. AGV made Rossi an honorary president of the company in 2008. Agostini finished his career in 1977 with 122 Grand Prix wins and 15 World Championships.
If two racing champs are not enough proof then how about the AGV Standards? AGV developed a process revolutionizing helmet design through the use of a 3D laser scanning system. Instead of designing helmets around the outer shell, AGV starts with the head using the laser scanning technology. The 3D system enables AGV to design helmet inner shells and linings that more ergonomically fit to a rider's head while obtaining higher comfort and improved safety.
