Italian manufacturer AGV introduces two brand new helmets that are going to broaden its Street Road line-up: the K-3 and the K-4 Evo. If the K-3 can be considered the ‘entry-level’ product of the range, there is no doubt it raises the bar quite a bit as it bears quite a few resemblances with the GP-Tech (the model that sits at the top of that range) as well as boasting flashy Valentino Rossi-replica graphics. Its shell is made of HIR-TH (High Resistant Thermoplastic Resin), while the coating of its Street 8 visor is anti-scratch and anti-fog.
The air inlets on forehead and chin allow for a constant flow of fresh air inside the helmet while the two outlets on the sides and the one at the back - framed into a little spoiler - use EPS channeling to get rid of the hot and humid air from within the helmet. The inner lining is removable and washable (nape pad aside) and is made of Dri-Lex, which has been hygienically treated to avoid bacteria and allergies.
The K-4 Evo is arguably the most balanced and versatile model of the whole AGV range. The overall design of the model is pretty similar to the K-3, but its shell is made of fibreglass-based ACF (Advanced Composite Fiber). These two new models from AGV come with a slew of different and fancy graphics (as you can see in our massive photo gallery); which one do you like the most?
