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

AGV AX-8 DS EVO Tour Helmet 4.2 5 67 67
Didn't buy just 1 but 2! Not gonna lie the very first thing I wanted to do after taking this thing on it's first ride was to pop that visor off. I bought this helmet because it's the most lightweight helmet that you can get for the price, and when it has that visor on it unless your in a more tuck position the visor pushes air staight at your head and my neck began to hurt after thirty minutes of riding. BUT I didn't buy this helmet for the visor. Other than that IT's all positive. The visibility is fantastic. I took the extra plastic piece out that sits right on the bottom of the faceshield and it opened up the bottom of the shield a lot. During the hot times of summer I like to pop off the front of the mouth piece and allows TONS of air to pass through their without sacrificing safety like with the half helmets. But when it gets cold it's nice to have that neck roller to keep air out of the helmet and also the chin guard. It's a relatively quiet helmet but i'm a driver that likes to wear earplugs anyways but it's not bad when I accidentally forget them. We had already purchased one of these and couldn't get away from it so we bought another one! September 23, 2014
Great looking helmet but bad build quality After narrowing down my DS Helmet options i decided to opt for the AGV AX-8 DS EVO. I thought it would make a good commuter helmet without the visor and it would be something i could also use when going off road. Well off road it works fantastic, its well vented wide visibility but my complains are with the liner build quality and install of a bluetooth system. The first couple of days i used the helmet as it came without installing the bluetooth system and it was fine but by the 3rd day the chin guard kept popping out and it got to a point where i just decided to remove it and never use it again. The nose guard also seems to come off fairly easy. Now comes my biggest complain, don't buy this helmet if you plan on using a bluetooth system. The helmet is very tight around the ears and there is no room for the speakers. Installing the q3 base is also a problem, the helmet is very thick and its a pain to get it to snap in correctly plus the liner will never fit again properly, it sticks out a bit where the q3 sits. I also noticed one of the buttons where the liner snaps back does not snap back so i have one loose button in the cheek lining. I finally managed to install my Q3 and ended up removing it. The ear is so tight that the speakers make a pressure point and its very uncomfortable, the only way to make them fit would be to dig out some of the styrofoam and i don't know how safe that would be. Another complain is that the screws that hold the visor and shield are super soft. The black paint has already fallen off and if yours comes tight as mine came its very easy to strip them. Overall its one of the best looking DS helmets but bad build quality all over. For the price i expected the helmet to have features like a flip down tinted visor, better build quality, and less wind noise. I would not recommend this helmet to anybody, stay away.

Great Helmet I got the AX-8 EVO DS to replace an aging Fly Trekker helmet. Right off the bat, the AX-8 has much plusher padding and cushions your head a lot better than the Fly. Putting on the helmet and the weight different was felt immediately. I also find it to be very aerodynamics with very little lift at speed (relatively speaking to other Adventure style helmets). It's also very quiet with very good ventilation. The top vents work very well. I am not able to test the chin vent with a tall windscreen on the bike. Big plus that the chin vent can be removed completely and comes with nose and chin guard; gives you options different situations. The fit to me is very good. Due to my odd rounder head shape, it's very difficult to find a helmet that fit me. I have an AGV S4 in medium and that fits like a glove. Unfortunately, AGV discontinued that helmet and no longer makes a helmet with that internal shape. I found the AX-8 to be very similar, being only slightly more oval than the S4. As the result, I have to go up 1 size to a Large so it's not too tight at my temples. Overall, it's a very aggressive and good looking helmet with many great features for the price point. It also offers options to be worn in different weather and situations. It's a great buy. September 5, 2014
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
lucas c: Recomendation of my Argentinian friends Sep 21, 2014
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.

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

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!

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
