The 2011 AGV helmet range includes some hot models from offroad to urban and superbike use. The new offroad helmet is the AGV AX-8. It’s a high tech model in an angular design with front and rear air vents. Three external shell sizes are available, with the internal size ranging from XXS to XXXL. The shell is made from carbon, kevlar and fibre glass to reduce weigh and guarantee safety. The interior is made from Dry-lex breathable material. The whole helmet weighs from 1.15 to 1.4 kg depending on homologation.
AGV’s new scooter helmet is the Bali Copter, designed for fashionable urban use. It has a helicopter-style front visor with aluminium finish along the sides, vintage-look leather and soft interior in the same colour as the exterior leather. With three different external sizes, the Bali Copter ranges from XS to XL and is lined with anti-allergenic and breathable material which can be washed. Included in the Bali AGV helmet range is the new Bali II. It has been modernised with three different external shell sizes to improve comfort and safety, and now has a quick-release, microlock closure.
The new top-of-the-range urban helmet is the Citylight, completely designed and made in Italy. It sits at the top of the City AGV line and has a new aerodynamic design and thermoplastic external shell. Last in the new models is the Longway II helmet made specifically with value for money in mind. It has been built based on the Longway line and now has removable lining and an ESV-1 solar visor. It also has a neat, movable chin piece for easy removing and wearing of the helmet, as well as for some relief in hot weather. Go to the AGV site for more details or to order your helmet for Christmas.
