Benefits of the AGV Carbon Fiber Motorcycle Helmet

The carbon solid helmet does a lot more than offer you additional safety while on the roads. From some great ventilation to improved comfort, there is a lot going on for this AGV offering. Here is what we loved.

  1. 100% carbon fiber shell

Manufactured with high-quality carbon, the shell of the helmet has been designed to provide maximum protection. The shape of the shell is such that it minimizes the risk of impact energies damaging the collar bone in any way. It comes with a 100% carbon fiber chin bar that has been built to ensure that the helmet is lightweight and balanced even when you are using it in the open configuration. The metal chin guard opening system is meant to reduce the chance of accidental openings when you are riding.

  1. Efficient ventilation

The helmet uses the IVS, also known as the Integrated Ventilation System, to ensure proper airflow in and out of the helmet. A large front vent, a rear extractor, and a chin guard vents are integrated in the shell in order to direct air towards the rider’s head, avoiding any interference by the internal sun shield. 

The internal chin channels are designed to ensure an even distribution of air through the shield surface. The helmet comes with an adjustable integrated spoiler that maximizes stability and cuts down on turbulence when you are riding on rugged terrain.

  1. Comfort

The helmet is equipped with a reversible crown pad that can be used on both sides. You can choose the side that will be in contact with your face based on the feel and climate. The warmer side is made with Shalimar fabric and is soft and gentle to touch. 

On the other hand, the cooler side is lined with Ritmo fabric. The neck roll, created with Shalimar and Nabuk fabric, is water-resistant and keeps water from accumulating inside the helmet. The cheek pads are made using Ritmo fabric that offers antibacterial protection, moisture-wicking properties, and premium skin comfort via the Microsense treatment.

  1. Unique shield mechanism

This helmet is flexible when it comes to its shield and visor system. The metal face shield mechanism has been built with the purpose of minimizing surface area and increasing peripheral view. It also helps in improving impact performance. The helmet has a rapid face shield release system, which means that you will require no tools when you want to remove or reinstall the shield. The face shield is further designed to be compatible with the 100% Max Vision Pinlock (120) anti-fog technology that offers you maximum vertical and horizontal view. There are few accidental openings because of the Visor Lock System.

  1. Durable face shield

This helmet is equipped with the GT3 face shield. It has an anti-scratch finish, which means that it will not suffer from wear and tear easily. The shield is available in two different sizes so that riders can optimize and find their perfect fit. The combination of shield and shell in their proper sizes will cut down on air drafts and noise efficiently.

  1. Removable sun shield

Having the Sun rays pierce your eyes when you are riding can be very annoying. To solve this problem, the helmet comes with an integrated anti-scratch inner sun shield that is durable and user-friendly. You can even remove the shield without using any tools.

This helmet comes in three different shell sizes so that you can find the perfect fit for yourself. Your options are XS-SM, MD-LG, and XL-3XL.

  1. Advanced fabric technology

The two fabrics used in the helmet are technologically advanced. The Shalimar fabric is designed to warm and soft, while the Ritmo fabric is made to keep the temperature in control. The Shalimar and Nabuk fabric is infused with water-resistant treatments, while the Ritmo fabric shows the effects of Sanitized, 2Dry, and Microsense treatments.

  1. DOT and ECE Certified

Not only is this helmet DOT certified, but it also has the advanced ECE certification.

Other Important Factors

This helmet tends to fit too snugly around the jaw and cheek region. The sizes tend to run rather small, so you should size up if you are on the cusp of two sizes. Check the measurements of each size to make sure that you will get the perfect fit.

The Final Verdict

The AGV Sport mod combines protection with modern technology to give you an amazing helmet. Lightweight and comfortable, the modular design can prove to be very convenient. The two-sided helmet liner is unique and allows you to adjust your comfort. The GT3 face shield accommodates the Pinlock 120 insert lens so that fog is never an obstacle to your riding.

I have been riding on two wheels on and off the road for +20 years. Having access to 100's of brands of helmets, gear, and bikes - you could say that I have the dream job of a motorcycle junkie.
