AGV AX-8 DS EVO Tour Helmet

The design and the line inevitably recall the AX-8 Model from which it is derived, but additional technical features like the visor and the specific visor mechanism, the chin air vent that can be opened, and the open-able supplementary ventilation on the top guarantee all the performance and comfort of a road model.

New internal padding with increased thickness for improved comfort and greater stability in professional use. New shape of the outer shell in the chin area which, 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

Great Helmet but not same fit as AGV Horizon I had to return this helmet due to the fact that - even thou people say its the same shape as the AGV Horizon, its not. It fits slighly smaller and slightly narrower than the Horizon. Its a great helmet non the less if it fits your head well. August 16, 2014
NIce and Snug This is my first dual sport helmet and expensive helmet. Very snug fit. Its a little tough trying to wear sunglasses with them because the helmet pushes yours ears right up against your hear. Same with ear phones. But the noise is reduced and the field of view is nice and wide. I prefer not using the nose guard as it blocks the gauge readings on my motorcycle. August 13, 2014
Good helmet but NOISY! I have worn this helmet for several thousand miles now, both in town & extended trips. The fit leans toward the rounder side of the oval head shape. Not quite as round as an Arai RX-Q but close. I find it to be a comfortable helmet all round. If you use in-helmet speakers you will have to modify the ear pockets as there is not enough room provided for even the thinnest speakers. The helmet is also very noisy which I attribute to the basic design of the helmet. The field of vision is huge which is why I was attracted to this helmet. Unfortunately the shield detent/ratchet stops are very far apart & there is no detent for just cracking the visor for clearing breath fog. The screws that hold the shield in place vibrated loose & fell out on my second ride causing some fumbling to catch the shield. AGV said they were sorry but wouldn't send me a new set. Don't be so cheap AGV. The peak makes head checks at speed require a few attempts to get used to but when you expect the extra lift it becomes routine. All said this is a good helmet but these small quirks keep it from being a really great helmet. June 24, 2014
Very comfortable, 100% recommended 100% recommended except for windy roads. Great design June 16, 2014
Not a bad helmet for my usage. I use this helmet when I ride my BMW R1100 RT, so I'm using it for road riding. I've also been riding dirtbikes for decades so I know what I like about particular helmets. For me the decision to by this helmet allowed a melding of the attributes I wanted in a helmet. Mainly a good sealing face shield, a wide field of vision and a peak or visor. The AGV does all that and generally I'm pleased with it. My only complaint at this point is the obviously flimsy construction of the peak, it's very weak and doesn't need much force to get it to snap. Mine took one tumble into a gravel parking lot from the seat of my bike when the wind caught it and blew it off. $37 later and I have a new peak, I will be very careful with it this time. My dirtbike helmet has taken many more times the abuse and has even survived a few mellow endows intact. That's what a dual sport helmet should be able to withstand. If I used this helmet on my dirtbike that stylin peak would be snapped off in the first fifteen minutes of riding. For the usage I bought it for it's okay, I'm satisfied with it. June 7, 2014
Fantastic Helm I really dig the helmet and it is very comfortable. I did notice that it I had to be careful to tuck my ears in when I put the helmet on otherwise it would stay bent (or folded over a bit) with it on. People have complained that the ear cushions were a bit much but it really hasn't been an issue. One concern is that I am going to buy a bluetooth headset (Sena SMH10) soon and I am not certain how the sound from the speakers will be muffled by the cushions. I honestly doubt it will be too much of an issue though. I have taken it on/off road and the airflow is good on road. I have only taken the helmet to around 60mph and it is very comfortable. The peak of the helmet does pull my head very slightly if I turn my head at these speeds but I will be taking it off at these speeds in the future. The peak is fantastic for sunny days if I forget my sunglasses or when bits of dirt/rocks fly at my from my buddies when I am off-road. The helmet is easy to clean after getting some mud on them. Disassembling the helmet's visor/peak for cleaning is very easy and they included some plastic screws that use a coin instead of a screwdriver. When putting the visor and peak, be careful about the plastic screws as you can easily break them if you cross-thread the screws - Luckily, they included extra plastic screws. When the visor is up, you have the two bottoms of the visor in your field of vision but it isn't very distracting. There is some road noise but it isn't too distracting. Overall fantastic helmet with good airflow for when I am on/off road. May 31, 2014
Comfortable helmet, requires some breakin, handles condensation really well. This is my second ax-8, replaced first because it kept my cheek bone from smacking the pavement; visor folded in but didn't break and cosmetic damage to the face guard. Suppose to replace after an impact. The second's redesign has nice improvements especially the rounding of the bottom front. For size, I have an oval head and measures right between the Medium and Large, this time I went with the smaller size knowing that they do breakin, snug putting on but once on it feels right where the large did have some movement. May 22, 2014
Needs design work It's difficult to knock the helmet too much, because some of my dislikes are completely subjective. Having said that, I would not buy a helmet with a visor again. It's impractical for anyone that needs to ride to an off-road spot and back on tarmac at speed. It's very uncomfortable. The helmet is the loudest I've ever had. At anything over 40 mph, with the visor down, I couldn't be heard by my riding partner over our intercom. The visor also has two big flaws. The angle of the visor is very steep and it bends your vision unless it is closed. It also has no indent to allow a small amount of air in. It's either open or closed. I just road a portion of the TAT wearing it and it was a pain. I should have worn my Quest and not worried about looking stylish. May 19, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Janet F: Matches two of my bikes . . , Too bad it does not have pinlock, but will take a chance that it may be watertight at the shield, unlike my XD. Mar 6, 2014
A shopper asked: Does this helmet have cutouts for communication devices or speakers? My current AFX helmet doesn't have any recess for speakers which pushes them uncomfortably into my ears. Aug 15, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
MELVIN B: No, there is a band of cushioning that covers the ears, which on the plus side makes this helmet pretty quiet, on the other hand when i wear earbuds they become uncomfortable after a couple hours.

Also the fit of this helmet is oval, the afx is more round.

Bryant S: No, it does not.

But it is a great helmet otherwise.

Staten G asked: Does the DS version have a chin curtain? May 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark B: Yes chin curtain included. This is my favorite helmet. Snug fit, I'm between med and large, but I'm definatly large with this. Light and lots of ventilation for summer. Perfect for most riding. I have a k-4 evo for long, fast, cold rides. May 19, 2014
Reply to Mark Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Janet F: Yes, mine had a removable rubber curtain. AGV calls it a throat shield. It fell out and was lost during a ride; probably from using a drink tube. The curtain kept the wind noise off of the Sena mike. Jun 3, 2014

Colin S asked: I'm very interested in purchasing this helmet but am concerned about head SHAPE (not size). The only helmet I can wear comfortably is an Arai Signet-Q because of hits long oval head shape. I'd like a helmet better suited for off-road riding and hot weather riding. I bought an Arai XD-4 and the head shape was close but in the end it was not long enough for me and I ended up with a head ache after an hour of wear. I read an article that said this helmet was also a long oval. Can anyone who owns this helmet and has ridden with it tell me if its similar to the Arai Signet-Q? Jun 30, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Bryant S: Colin: Last October, when shopping for a new DS helmet, I tried on an Arai XD-4, but decided on the AGV AX-8 instead. I'm not familiar with the Siqnet-Q. I too have a long oval head, and have previously used Shoei's for 30+ years. My AGV AX-8 DS EVO is the best fitting helmet I've ever had. Comfortable, quiet, stylish, light weight, well vented, and it doesn't fog even down to ten degrees. It doesn't push on my forehead, like many helmets do -- it fits snugly and evenly all around the circumference of my head. Love it!

Colin S: Did the xd4 press on your forehead at all? Jul 1, 2014
A shopper asked: The users manual came with a card that stated I should remove the "peak" If i plan on going over 62 mph? I'm going to, so where's the peak? Mar 21, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthew S: The peak is that part that you don't see on a "normal" full face helmet, you might call it a visor or something like that. It's held on with what look like 2 screws on each side. There's an attached image with it circled in yellow. Mar 25, 2013
