The shield does not lock down. You cannot close the chin vents. The sun shield has the open/close switch on only one side which makes opening and closing difficult. For the price, and name, I expected more.

Saw this for half price and bought it , knowing it’s a great brand. The helmet looks great, feels great, and it’s very comfortable. The helmet is well ventilated but also very well insulated, and the internal sun visor is a great addition. Very satisfied with my purchase, especially with the great discount I got.
Had for about two months great helmet. Love the flip down sunglasses and good venting system. Took me a week to realize it had a vent in the mouth area and the two accent pieces on top slid back to vent. Great deal great design
Been on a few extended rides since buying this helmet and it was a great purchase. The fit is snug all the way around without any pinching. The weight is only slightly more that my previous Suomi, a $700 purchase. The air flow is fantastic, especially through the chin vents, very stable at high speeds, and the visor and vents all seal very well during cold evenings. The look is high end and the graphics are beautifully done. The only negative is the ear cutouts, enlarged to accept communications equipment, tends to catch my ears when I take it off so I have to be careful. Also, the drop down visor should have been a darker tint. Regardless, this is a steal of a helment.
This is my second AGV K3 SV helmet....I've worn Bell and HJC for a similar price and the AGV is quieter, lighter and much more aerodynamic. The sun visor works perfectly, too. The build quality is excellent. I'm a fan!
I live in Tucson Az, and this offers tons of ventilation for the summer heat.
This HELMET is awesome. Great fit. Amazing finish. Bag included.visor system is neat and easy. Secondary shield is trick. Venting is spot on. Short rides so far. But expecting to keep this helmet for some time. Agv good work.
A little too tight fit, but I guess its good for the snug.
My idea was to have a helmet which is too light and ECE/SNELL.
This fulfills my demands... Perfect... It is stylish and AGV, what else :D
Thanks MotoSport.com for such inexpensive price and good product.
I have used this helmet in the hot weather conditions of steamy Singapore. It's great advantage is its light weight which means that even on long rides there is no discernible neck ache.
Obviously, our humid climate doesn't favour the use of a full face lid but this helmet is well vented so that once you are moving there is pretty good airflow around the face and temples.
The other super useful feature is the flip down tinted visor. Like many countries, we have a general ban on tinted visors due to low light visibility. The flip down visor behind the main visor is easy to operate even with a gloved hand and is a life saver when riding into the sun.
This is a lid that I will be hanging on to and I am very likely to replace it with the same or a similar item when it comes round to needing a replacement. This is my fifth AGV helmet and definitely the best so far. I am drawn to the wonderful Rossi replicas but on my budget, these helmets make a good alternative.
In looking for a new helmet I originally look at getting another Shoei, and start reading reviews of other manufacturers. After looking at AGV and the Rossi replicas (Yamaha owner) I found the Tartaruga. At first glance to graphics are striking and visually appealing. So I pulled the trigger and ordered the helmet in large. Shipping was quick and the helmet in person was money well spent. Once the helmet was on my head, the fit was firm where it needed to be firm and loose wear it is needs to comfortable. Off the head and a more thorough inspection the helmet has various vent holes that my old Shoei did not. Which is a good thing. The ability to use the tab in front of the helmet to create a small gap in the face shield to give fresh air without opening a larger gap like other helmets, is impressive and easy. While riding the helmet is relatively quiet with all the vents open and noise is minimal. Overall I've ridden with this helmet a few times and couldn't be happier.
