AGV to Introduce 2012 Lineup at Indy Expo

Friday, February 17, 2012
AGV GRID helmet
The 2012 AGV GRID helmet includes new internal padding with skin-friendly fabric and a new visor mechanism.
New for the 2012 Racing lineup is the AGV GRID helmet. The GRID features new internal padding with 3D construction and new skin friendly fabrics for improved comfort, richer and more stylish internal padding with new visor mechanism base for quieter and easier visor assembly and removal process.

The GRID combines the performance (weight, safety, aerodynamics, stability at high speeds) and aggressive lines of a typical racing helmet with the comfort of an on-road helmet, comprising easy fit, ventilation and practical use. MSRP is starting at $399.95.

GP-Tech completes the Racing line with the same helmet used by Rossi in MotoGP. The Limited Edition helmets are already available in Valentino’s Eye, and the new for 2012 Misano helmet.

In the Street line, AGV introduces the new K-4 EVO: a dynamic system with air vents and rear extractors to enhance the ventilation, a two size fiberglass external shell in ACF (Advanced Composite Fibre), removable easy-to-wash internal padding in Dry-Comfort.

The K-4 EVO is the most balanced and versatile helmet in the AGV 2012 collection: suitable for motorbikes and scooters, it can be used in all condition, being ideal for sports, touring or city use. The K-4 EVO is the solution for those who want an attractive, safe, comfortable helmet with an excellent price/quality ratio. MSRP is starting at $219.95.

For the City line AGV presents the new Cafe Racer RP60: the proposal of the AGV range dedicated to vintage style. Reflecting its tradition for iconic style that its riders have taken on the racetrack in the past, AGV updates the technical features to create a product for those in search of a helmet with the pure spirit of motorcycling.

The RP60 design is similar to the ones used in the ’50s and ‘60s characterized by a clean, rounded fiber shell. Each RP60 comes with a pair of goggles. MSRP is starting at $179.95.

AGV AX-8 EVO
The AX-8 EVO off-road helmet has revised shaping for 2012 with a special 'shock absorber' in the chin area.
In the off-road collection, the AX-8 EVO is the new top of the line helmet in fiber created on the basis of the AX-8 and further enhanced thanks to cooperation with AGV riders of European Cross, Enduro and Amercian Supercross. The AX-8 EVO features new internal padding for an improved comfort and a new shape of the shell in the chin area that decreases risks of impact traumas, thanks to its “shock-absorber” function.

The AX-8 EVO is available with three outer shell measurements in sizes XXS-XXL. The shell has SSL layers made of Carbon fiber, Kevlar and fiberglass for a mix of light weight and maximum safety. The built in IVS channels made directly in the shell assure a more effective airflow inside the helmet and better aerodynamic performance while the new internal padding is extra thick for improved comfort. MSRP is starting at $349.49.

From the Off-road collection the AX-8 Dual EVO is the extremely versatile helmet designed for on and off-road use. This design and its line reflect the AX-8 EVO from which it derives. Thanks to additional technical characteristics, such as the visor and the specific visor mechanism, the opening air vent in the chin guard and an extra top vent guarantee all the performance and comfort of a road helmet. It can be used in three different configurations: Supermotard/Trial, Motocross/Enduro and Streetfighter/Naked. MSRP is starting at $399.95.
