The best AGV bike helmets

by Chris Williams |

When it comes to helmets, AGV is considered to be up there with the best of them. Their lids protect the heads of many of the world’s leading racers, with both Valentino Rossi and Guy Martin sporting protective headgear from the iconic Italian brand.

AGV has been renowned for its innovation throughout its evolving range of helmets. So, we thought we’d bring together a selection of some of the best helmets currently available from AGV, with SHARP ratings included.

What to expect from AGV helmets:

Although AGV also makes open-face helmets for urban riding, our picks are all full-face road and sports helmets that you could use on the street or track - be it the occasional track day or in some cases, proper racing.

As with many helmets, the AGV models below are aerodynamically shaped and are wind tunnel-tested. They are all Pinlock insert-ready for fog-free riding and most feature AGV's integrated ventilation system.

There are several steps to AGV's development testing of its helmets: durability, material, visual, paint resistance, and wind tunnel tests. Then having manufactured its helmet, AGV puts it through component testing too, for things like the visor and strap.

AGV helmets reflect the company's passion and quality. We like this dedication.
