Lean mean carbon/kevlar/fibreglass version of AGVs AX8 off road helmet – for people who growl while they’re riding.
Apparently, AGV had so many people asking for the AGV AX8 Dual off road helmet without the peak, that they’ve decided to put this peakless version into production. Called the AX8 Naked, it’s aimed at folks who ride naked bikes such as your factory streetfighters or supermotos who want a helmet with a distinctive and aggressive look but without the peak needed by off road riders. And pretty horny it looks too. It’s angular and mean-looking and the spec shows it should deliver the goods too.
The shell comes in three sizes (a good thing) and by the looks of it AGV couldn’t quite decide what to construct it of so they made it out of everything they found in their lab. It’s got layers of Carbon, fibreglass and kevlar so you’d expect it to be pretty strong and shock absorbant. Other features: it’s got a double-d ring fastener, three front inlet vents and two exhausts, antifog and antiscratch visor and fully washable liners. It’s not been SHARP safety tested yet but it is, of course, ECE 22.05 approved for sale in Europe and should retail for around £250.
