What's this?

AGV AX8 EVO Naked Helmet

The AGV AX-8 EVO Naked Carbon Fiber Helmet is the street version of the AX-8 DS EVO, but with a full carbon fiber chassis and no peak. By removing the peak, you reduce drag.

Less drag x less weight = ∞ fun.

The AGV AX-8 EVO Naked features internal padding with increased thickness for improved comfort and greater stability. The carbon fiber shell construction makes for an extremely light weight helmet and the shape for the outer shell in the chin area combined with a wider and softer base edge reduces interference with any back protector used and decreases risks of impact traumas, thanks to its "shock-absorber" function.

Features:

  • Carbon fiber shell construction
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) funnels air though channels in the outer shell
  • Flat face shield in non-scratch, antifog polycarbonate
  • Dry-Lex internal padding with sanitized treatment
  • Removable and washable cheekpads and internal lining
  • 3 shell sizes
  • DOT certified

AX8 Evo Naked Carbon
I like it. The lightest full face I have. Excellent vision range. A snug fit but it likely won't come off in a crash. The carbon finish and MX style chin bar are very trick. Add the smoke shield and it's an impressive lid.
Revzilla is outstanding. They are great to get your gear from.

Lightweight, and exceptional visibility
My previous helmet had a sun visor, cheek air-bladders, and quick removable shield. I was worried because this one has none of those things, but I've come to find out they're thongs I don't need.

I love the visibility this helmet has. Coupled with the light weight makes wearing it feel almost like going without a helmet. This is what happens when you sacrifice those "features" above. It's just a quality, focused helmet that does exactly what it's supposed to do extremely well.

The carbon fiber version I got is probably not necessary because it doesn't save much weight, but I must say I really like it anyway. It's just cool.

And finally, I never knew what "good ventilation" actually meant before I got this helmet. Opening and closing vents ACTUALLY makes a noticeable difference. And I'm no longer flipping up my face shield at every stoplight.

Amazing Helmet
This helmet just makes me happy, simply put. The airflow while moving is exceptional. The special moisture wicking fabric and padding used versus the average helmet is really nice. The vision is gold. And the fact that the face shield comes with anti-fog is awesome too. Not to mention how simply awesome this helmet looks! (You definitely need to buy the smoke face shield to go with it though.)

It does have a bit of noise, but nothing bad in my opinion, and it is a bit narrow, but that also fits me perfectly. The only real reason not to buy this helmet (other than you not liking the style. In which case I'm not sure why you're reading reviews on it) is the price. In all fairness though, anything over your $150 HJC helmet is for comfort, quality, features, and looks anyway. The helmet purely for protection train left a long while ago, but I promise you that you will like this one a lot better anyway.

You might be able to find a better helmet for this price with better features, as some have suggested, but you definitely won't be disappointed with this helmet at all. I 100% recommend it, unless what it offers just isn't the helmet for you.

Very Solid Helmet
Out of the gate...this is by far the lightest helmet I own. 3.19lbs is really light for a helmet at this price. I read another review that stated the carbon is not neccessary because it doen't save any weight...well the matte black version comes in at over 3.3lbs. While that's not an alarming reduction...it is in fact lighter, plus in my opinion, it looks so much better than the matte, but that's a personal preference. Now I can't attest to the protection and have no plans on testing in that area. The fit is exceptional and the vision is extreme compared to my other helmets. The only gripe I have is the helmet doesn't come with cut outs for bluetooth speakers but Sena does sale low profile speakers, which I also bought and they don't intrude on the comfort at all. The airflow is very good and the noise level is tolerable for me...the two does go hand in hand especially at speed and the fact this helmet doesn't have the peak, makes it useful on the highway. I'm not riding down the interstate looking like a bobble head riding a bike...lol. Overall I am completely satisfied with the purchase. Make no mistake, there ARE better helmets on the market, but for the price point, this one is hard to beat! Ride Safe!!!

Light and Airy
This helmet looks great, and is super light.

The fit is a little snug on the ears and you may need to reach in to push them back straight after you put it on. It was also a little difficult to get my Sena to fit, since there are no pockets for speakers like my AGV horizon.

It vents a lot of air and even more with the mesh face piece installed, but the helmet tends to be loud on the highway.

The rear pad also tends to dislodge from its snaps if I try to wear a Balaclava or skull cap, due to the way it snaps in

Worth every penny!
As advertised, this helmet is very light and the vision is exceptional, like you're not wearing a helmet. Air flow is very good and overall it is quiet. Style...the "coolest" helmet on the market. Padding is excellent and comfortable. Only one minor complaint, there is a slight whistle at the top of the visor. I ordered the smoke visor and hopefully it will seal better. If not, I'll attempt to adjust.

The perfect helmet
This is an amazing helmet, it’s extremely light and comfortable. The ventilation system is really good and has an amazing style. The only thing I don’t like are the straps, otherwise it’s the best helmet I’ve had.

Great helmet. Very impressed
Where to start with this helmet? Let's start with the obvious. This is by far one of the best looking helmets out there now. The weight is so light. Match the weight with the great vision of view and it doesnt even feel like you're wearing a helmet when riding. Fit is nice and snug. Perfect for people with a more narrow shaped head. Air flow is decent. Can be a little noising when it's windy out. I thought this helmet was a little pricing before buying, but after my first ride with it, I feel that its worth every penny. Great helmet. Can't go wrong with this one.

Great helmet, would definitely recommend for street riding
This helmet is great for regular use.

Pros :

1. Snug fit, will not move around at all.
2. Extremely good air flow.
3. Wide vision.
4. Really, really light.
5. Aggressive styling geared towards street riders.

Cons :

1. Changing face is a pain. I really wish this had been a quick release shield.
2. In colder climates, there's quite a bit of airflow inside the helmet, even with all the vents closed. Something to consider. I'm still trying to track down where it's coming from, but it seems to be from a little hole just above the mouth vent.

Jeff R on Feb 23, 2016
Liked the technical features explained in the RevZilla product video. Turns out this helmet fits perfectly and is 8oz (1/2 pound!!!) lighter than my 2 year old Arai Signet-Q (long oval) helmet.
Steve V on Aug 3, 2015
Looks badass, and provides all the protection I need. The only downside to this helmet imo is changing the shields is a pain.

Ryan M on Feb 19, 2015
a deer jumped in front of me and i went down hard, i got a concussion but the helmet took the worst of the hit and saved my life. the visor didn't serve a purpose for me so i decided to go with the naked version but the matte is a little too plain so i decided to go with the carbon. my last ax-8 weighed nearly nothing so the little bit of weight reduction isn't really a factor, just a bonus

How much does the helmet weigh?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Weight: E2205: 1,160 g (+/-50 g) in size M
I wanted to know if the Sena 20s would fit inside this helmet. As per the video there may need to be some bit of modification to the cheek padding, but I wanted to know how much modification/how much of a struggle it would be to make it fit.

Also, would the Sena 20s fit better than a SMH-15? It appears that the 20s is sleeker and therefore better for this helmet

Thanks so much!

Austin
Austin R on May 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: very slight super easy. Only for better fitment
I have a size large Icon Mainframe from 2008. That's the only size comparison I currently have to go off. Do you have any recommendations what size would work for me with a AGV AX-8 Evo Naked Carbon Helmet? What about thoughts on if I add the SENA SMH 10R Bluetooth system and how much that will affect the ear fit?
landon p on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I owned an ICON Monster Helmet size "Large" and had to purchase a size XL AGV AX-8 Evo Naked Carbon Helmet.

I have a few AGV helmets and none of them have a cut-out in the area of the ear, so unless you do some cutting of your own, you'll likely have fitment issues with the ear speakers of the SENA Bluetooth system.
Can you throw a peak on here with those holes?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The actual helmet doesn't have the holes as the helmet in Revzilla's pics portray (I bought the helmet about a month ago). I reached out to AGV directly to inquire about if there were different versions of the helmet made and they said the Carbon was never made with the holes for the peak...too bad!
Hey, does anyone have experience with this helmet on a sports bike? Would greatly appreciate your details of experiencing this on a sports bike. I ride an R1 and love the aesthetics as well as the brand. I ride at high speeds but rare am fully tucked to the extent that my chin is grazing the tank.
Larry V on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought the AGV AX-8 EVO Naked this past March and still ride with it. I still love it and think the aesthetics of it are awesome. I ride a naked bike myself, 2014 Streetfighter, and think this helmet goes really well with it. Visibility seems pretty good. Overall helmet size. not necessarily fit, seems a bit larger than the normal full face motorcycle helmets, but weight-wise it's pretty light. Fit-wise, I think I'm normally a medium in other brands, but I got a large in this helmet and I think if anything it might be a tad too big, but not enough for me to really notice. The front mouth vent really just vents air directly on to your mouth I've noticed. Air flowing through there doesn't really reach the other parts of the face and I can't say that I really notice the venting on the top of the helmet. Since I'm on a naked bike with a more upright ride I do seem to notice some wind coming up through the bottom, but again not enough for me be irritated.

Overall, I really enjoy my Naked Carbon and I think you will too. The thing just looks awesome...especially if you put a smoke face shield on it. Hope this helps!

Can smaller sized cheek pads be installed? I used the sizing chart and got a medium but its super snug in the cheeks.
Gabe C on Mar 28, 2016
I was wondering if anyone knew where i could get a yellow shield for this helmet ?
I was also wondering if I could get a rear spoiler for this agv ax8 carbon?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased a dark tint shield with the helmet. A yellow shield? I did a quick bing/google search and found just tinted shields. And a spoiler? I have no idea if such a thing is made for this helmet. But I like mine just fine.
Is it DOT certified?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's DOT and SNELL certified.
I got and Triumph Speed Triple and I was wondering, what is the best naket helmet out there for wind buffering? I got a shoe 1200 and is pretty good on till I'm going up wind about 70 and above on the highway, is there any other helmet out there that could take more wind blast?
Fernando A on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have been nothing but pleased with the performance of my AGV AX-8 Naked Carbon Helmet. I commute to work daily on my FZ-09 Yamaha. Speeds are ususally are at 70+ mph. This helmet works as advertised. I can not make a comparrison between the AVG and your Shoei as I have never worn that make or model. I love my AGV AX-8 EVO Naked Carbon Helmet!
good for street riding??
A shopper on Jan 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's a great street riding the helmet doesn't block your peripheral vision much airflow is great. Keep in mind a smoked visor is about 80 bucks the clear visor that comes with it isn't the best esthetically, may just be my preference. It is a bit loud but I prefer a louder helmet, it may be a fault if you ride a longer distance. But overall it is a fantastic helmet and I would recommend it to any of my friends.
