We have a new sponsor here at the ATVConnection.. Dainese , they are a Italian based company that carries the AGV helmet line. I got one of the AX-8 EVO models to check out. I have had this helmet for about 3 weeks and have been wanting to go riding with it to check it out.. spraining my ankle days after getting the helmet have kept me from doing that..
So for now a first impression is all I have for you. (except for a quick spin around the property where my shop is located)Im going to be comparing it to my Fly racing (fr) helmet.. The first thing I noticed was how light the helmet is.. Second thing I noticed was the air gap the visor has with the helmet on each side. Im guessing this is so the visor doesnt get caught in the wind as easily at high speeds. Third thing was the vents in the helmet under those areas. My fr helmet is vented very well and so is the AGV helmet... riding with it the little bit I did it flowed a lot of air over my head just like the fr helmet did.. The AGV helmet has vents that close.. The fr helmet doesnt. Closing the vents on the AGV helmet cut off about 3/4 of the air flowing thru the helmet.. That will be a nice feature for winter riding..
Im hoping to get out riding with this helmet next weekend..
Here is a link to the AGV helmet I have...
