AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet

The AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet has taken one of the most high-end and lightweight dualsport helmets on the market (AX-8 DS) and has made some significant upgrades.  Additional technical features like the visor and visor mechanism, a chin air vent that can be opened, and an open-able supplementary ventilation on the top of the AGV AX-8 EVO guarantee all the performance and comfort of a road model.

The AX-DS EVO features new internal padding with increased thickness for improved comfort and greater stability. A new shape for the outer shell in the chin area combined with a wider and softer base edge compared to the previous model, reduces interference with any back protector used and decreases risks of impact traumas, thanks to its "shock-absorber" function.

Features:

  • SSL (Super Super Light) carbon, Kevlar and fiberglass shell construction
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) funnels air though channels in the outer shell
  • New flat dual face shield in non-scratch, antifog polycarbonate
  • Dry-Lex internal padding with sanitized treatment
  • Removable and washable cheekpads and internal lining
  • Outer aluminum peak screws 
  • 3 shell sizes
  • DOT and ECE 22.05 Certified

AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet 4.3 5 51 51
Looks great but not worth the money I used it for about 5000km (3000 miles). The top part of the visor got scratched really bad from rubbing on the rubber that seals it when closed. Also the padding inside id spaced in such a way that the seam presses on the upper part of my ear and it gets really pain full after a while. It might just be the shape of my head but it is a major problem for me which i haven't had with other helmets. If I put the nose piece in it comes up way to high and i cant see the instrument pannel on my bike (1200gs ADV). I would not recomend this to anyone but it might be i just got the bad one in the bunch. February 17, 2014
AGV AX8 DS I bought this helmet for my F700GS. The helmet is very comfortable and light weight. At times it feels like I'm not wearing a helmet at all because it's so comfortable. Ventilation is great and wind noise is about average. There is some drag at highway speeds. I plan on using this helmet in the summer for some nice back road cruising. All in all it's a great helmet! February 3, 2014
This could be a great helmet The AGV AX-8 DS EVO is remakably lighter and has better lateral vision than my Shoei Hornet DS. It has everything to be a great helmet, but its horrible cheek pads don't leave enough room for the ears. I'll have to cut the padding to be able to wear it again, which is a shame for a $400 helmet. This is a 5-star helmet in the first 15 minutes I wear it, but after that the pinching to the ears start... I thought it could be my ears, but then I have no issues with Shoei, Arai, or even Airoh (which is Italian as well). December 1, 2013
One glaring thing wrong with this helmet. AGV makes a very comfy helmet that has a wide field of vision and good ergonomics. Except for one thing that they don't tell you in the instruction manual. Due to bad/poor design, after a few months if you don't meticulously keep the upper gasket super clean, it scratches the inside of the visor! I have owned many helmets over the years and none of them do that. It is especially annoying if one is going over 70 miles an hour and need to keep the Peak from wobbling/vibrating by tilting one head down. What happens? The scratches act like a star filter on your vision. It's unfortunate that AGV doesn't stand behind their products and warranty that kind of defect, they suggested that I clean the gasket, lube it with a little bit of silicone (to attract dust right?) and to buy a new visor for $70.00! I hate companies that don't stand behind their product. Revzilla on the other hand has been on the up and up and offered to help me out on the next purchase of a visor. Personally, I would like to throw the helmet away and get one that works properly for $114.... October 28, 2013
Really good helmet you can feel the quality of the materials, I have been using it for dailly rides to the office and it is very comfortable, and in the roads it feels soft and light. really nice purchase October 8, 2013
Fantastic Helmet. I received the helmet in excellent condition, and was very impressed with the looks of the helmet... put it on, and even more impressed! The sound level is quieter than I expected and airflow is excellent. The only thing I would change is the chin curtain and breath shield are flimsy and fall out if you are not careful. I would still HIGHLY recommend this helmet for anyone who rides enduro or supermoto. October 6, 2013
Great dual helmet Light weight and comfortable visor is a cool feature, it's removable and so is the windshield , and you can use goggles which makes it a true dual sport helmet. It's pricy cuz of the features and looks and prob equivalent to a 250$ helmet of the same quality. Noise level sounds high but I have nothing to compare to , very wide angle of vision, perfect fit according to size chart, and I assume it protects well trusting Dot approval that is. The visor is small and the drag ain't bad at 60-65 mph If you plan long highway trip it's possible to remove very easily to reduce that drag. September 30, 2013
The best in class I really couldn't be much happier with my choice to buy this helmet. The video review does a good job of covering off on details, so I'll skim most of the stuff I agree with. What it doesn't say is that there isn't a single other helmet out there (as of 2013) that suits me better as a supermoto rider. Pros: ------ Light Removable Visor Aggressive Styling High Build Quality Good Venting Removable Liner Nice Fit (most shells are too big on my head, or padding too tight) Cons ------ No Quick Change visor You'll have to cut pads to add a speaker No paintjob / matte variety When the shield is up it tends to be in my vision September 23, 2013

Avery A: Light, good styling for DS bike, removable visor, accepts goggles. Sep 23, 2013
Alex L: I was looking for a white helmet to wear at night in order to increase my visibility. I opted to go with the AGV AX-8 DS Evo for several reasons...1. The increased line of vision which will reduce my blind spot at night, 2. Aggressive style, 3. The quality and affordability of AGV and 4. Planting a seed to eventually purchase a dual sport bike, 5. The white so i can be seen at night.
I'm currently on a Duc Monster with a black jacket and black matte arai... Not safe at night.

A shopper asked: How is the clarity of the shield? I have a cheap Bilt adventure helmet, It is like looking through a fish bowl. Very distracting. Feb 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joann W: The clarity of the shield has been great. I bought an extra tinted one also which has worked out well. I like that I can fit a pair of googles in there during summer off road riding.

My only complaint is with the threaded inserts for the visor and shield. One insert has completely failed - the screw got stuck in there and I had to cut it off, and I've noticed the other inserts are very sensitive. Way too easy to cross thread, IMO.

It's dissappointing because I choose this model for it's versitility. After less than a years use the visor must remain off and I'm careful about switching out the shields.

Brian C: This is the best full face helmet and shield on any helmet I have ever owned. It is super clear and practically distortion free. There is NO blind spot with this helmet, you have complete peripheral vision and it is super light weight. I love this helmet. It runs a little small but with Revzilla's no hassle exchange its a no brainer. I personally think it looks best without the visor on. Feb 18, 2014

Anthony B: I wear glasses and experienced the same fish bowl phenomena looking through the shields of other lower priced helmets. No such problems on the AGV AX-8 I own. The only thing worth noting is wearing polarized sunglasses behind the AGV shield can cause a rainbow effect on reflective surfaces. It comes in handy though since oil spots on the road tend to be easier to see. Feb 20, 2014

Mark M: I find this helmet to be very well balanced & fairly light. It weighs 3 lbs/ 4.6 oz on my kitchen scale. It feels substantially lighter than my Arai RXQ. As this was a Christmas gift & I live in Alaska & it's currently too slick to ride.
so I can't speak to the noise levels but expect it will have a little extra due to the peak.

Konstantin U asked: Hello! I'm interested to buy this helmet, but afraid to miss the size. I live in Ukraine, so due to complexity of returning process (to the USA and back - it's neither cheap nor fast) i'd like to pay extra attention picking the right size.
Usually I wear "M" sized helmets. I have tried Icon Variant sized "M", HJC CS-12N sized "M", Shark S650 sized "M". But, the only AGV helmet I tried - it was AGV RC-5 Skull off-road helmet, also sized "M" - was unbeleivably small for me.
I also tried Uvex Enduro and it also should have been size "L" to fit my head.

So, can anyone tell how AGV AX-8 DS EVO compares to other helmets, preferrably of the brands described above?
Many thanks in advance.

Ian B P: Hi Konstantin,

I have a large oval shaped head. I originally ordered a LG based on previous HJC Symax sizing. However, in this size although the helmet felt quite tight, I was able to push it up and off from under the chin bar. Exchanged it for a MD and this is perfect. Tight but comfortable with no risk of coming off. A great helmet BTW - quiet, light, well ventilated and the visor keeps distracting sunlight flashes off the screen. Hope this helps, cheers Bruce

Brian C: Wow..the Ukraine. Ok...this helmet does run a tad small. I normally wear a medium and have a scorpion that is very small. This helmet is a little snug and wears in very well. I thought it was too tight at first. But now that I have worn it for a year it is perfect. I would go for the medium. This helmetis good quality. The padding is super thick and comfy once it wears in. The visibility is awesome no blind spots. Love mine. Dec 9, 2013

A shopper asked: ...with shield "up"; Also, can you close the shield over the googles? Apr 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Here's the breakdown:

* With the Arai XD-4 and Shoei Hornet DS, you can wear both (and you can close the shield over the goggle).
* With the AX-8, you need to remove the shield to wear goggles.
* With the Icon Variant, it's difficult to wear goggles at all.

Brian C: I use the UClear system. No mics or bulk. It runs right inside. I had to hollow out a little cavity for the earpieces but it was worth it. Love the UClear. I don't know about the scala G9.
