AGV AX8 EVO Naked Helmet

TheAGV AX-8 EVO Naked Helmet is the street version of the AX-8 DS EVO. By removing the peak, you reduce drag. Less drag = more fun.

The AGV AX-8 EVO Naked features internal padding with increased thickness for improved comfort and greater stability. 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:

  • SSL (Super Super Light) carbon, Kevlar and fiberglass 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 and ECE 22.05 Certified

AGV AX-8 EVO Naked Helmet 4.4 5 14 14
Very long front to back dimensions This helmet has good air flow, and is rather comfortable so do recommend it. However it is almost comically long front to back so the profile I look like the great gazzoo. From the front head on I look like an assassin. The field of view is better then any helmet I have ever had, and I have had the best of Shoei, and Arai. You literally have an unobstructed view to the side. Zero interference from helmet. Pro's: Very light Great field of vision Good air flow Ver comfortable Unique Con's: Rather loud The front to back length is just too long for my taste If you get this helmet, you have to get the dark smoked visor to finish the look.

Gnarly. -Fitment is a pretty snug for me, as I ordered a size small. I could have ordered a medium, but after my previous experience with an AGV Grid I decided to go for the snug fit. The Grid was a great fit when I first purchased, but became less snug over time as the padding became more broken in. I anticipate that the AX-8 EVO will be a perfect fit once broken in. -Noise level is definitely lower than that of the Grid. I did notice a very slight whistle on the right, which became more pronounced during a shoulder check. Overall, the helmet is still very quiet. -This thing is super-duper light. I've noticed that I get much less fatigued around the neck area compared to when I am wearing the Grid. I'm 5' 11", and ride an SV650S in the stock riding position, save for a Sargent seat, so I would contribute this to a slight weight difference as well as a difference in aerodynamics. The airflow is quite good as well. I've seen some complaints about a bit of turbulence around 60-70mph and higher, but I have hardly noticed it myself. I think windscreen design and riding position have much more to do with this than helmet design. While I have noticed a little turbulence, it has been very insignificant for me. -The field of vision. Woah. I didn't know my face could get that warm while riding in the sun... Or that the sky was quite so blue. Might have to invest in some sunblock for my face, because the field of vision is just that wide. Also, it is worth noting that the visor seals very tightly. Nothing is getting through, around, or under the visor when it is closed. Overall, I would strongly recommend this helmet to anyone else out there riding a poor man's Ducati. I've found it to be exceptionally good for commuting as well as sport touring. It looks gnarly, too. I would warn anyone reading this, particularly if they own an SV, that this thing may cause you to do a bit of dual sport-esque riding on their street bike. Weeeee! September 11, 2014
Naked Truth 500 mile review on both Street and Dual Sport riding with 13 KLR 650 and 14 Ninja 1000: Pros: Looks great, feels great, wide field of view to the point if you didn't feel the cheek pads on your face you wouldn't know its on! I went to scratch my nose once and hit my closed visor with my hand! Some complained of obstructed view with visor full open. I only got this when I had the helmet too far down in front. Where it has settled, the lower edge of visor is out of the way unless your looking high above. Head checks are easy and helmet is light, light, light! With a dark smoke visor the thing looks sick as a stealth fighter pilot helmet or a dark lord of the Sith. I got lots of compliments even at a Harley ride! Cons: Chin strap should have been quick release for the money they ask for the helmet. It is not the quietest helmet for sure, whistles a bit on head checks. Air flow is adequate, not superior. Chin vent is a piece of garbage. Destroyed with only a few on and offs. Neutral Info: Runs a bit big. So if your contemplating between sizes, like I did with a 23" head, go a down size. Revzilla recommended this to me and I was right on with a Med. Nose/breath guard does its job when in place. It warms the helmet significantly. This is a pro in cold, a con if hot. Install accordingly. Get the dark smoke visor along with purchase. If anything, for street daytime riding! July 24, 2014
BadAss Helmet! Safe, security, and a good looking. Its the perfect helmet for street and urban riders July 21, 2014
Perfect Helmet This is a replacement from Icon, and this helmet is awesome. Fits great, super lightweight and looks awesome. Matte black and sound noise is minimal. June 3, 2014
Head turner, very comfortable I've been riding with this helmet for about three months and I absolutely love it. It feels infinitely lighter than my Bell RS-1 and has never felt fatiguing to wear, even after 3+ hour rides. The visibility is exceptional, and the large field of view mixed with the light weight make head checks very easy and comfortable. The buffeting at speed is present but not unbearable. Again, the light weight makes it easy for me to keep my head from doing 180s on the expressway. It is loud at speed, but I use noise cancelling in-ear headphones which clears that right up, no problem. I bought the smoked visor for this helmet and get tons of compliments on the overall appearance. I've uploaded a picture since there's a baffling lack of them online. It's worth mentioning that the alternate mesh mouthpiece he mentions in the video is difficult to find. I'm told by a local Dainese store that they are actually out of production indefinitely, which took them days of investigating to figure out. I haven't spoken to a single sales rep or owner of this helmet who even knew the piece existed before I asked about it, including the Revzilla rep I talked to. Overall I'm stoked about the purchase and would buy another one if I ever needed to. **I ride an '04 ZX6R (spiritedly on the street). June 3, 2014
Excellent product I found this helmet to be excellent. Very light for a XL size, very comfortable. Very good looks, with the dark visor the helmet looks very cool which is what I wanted. I am very happy with the purchase and the quality of revzilla's service and speed of delivery. Exactly what I wanted. April 28, 2014
A fantastic helmet This is my fifth AGV and as always, its a great helmet. Fit, finish, features, and the looks are what you would expect for the price. The Arai XD-4 is nice too, but it isnt worth the extra money. This helmet is the bomb! April 14, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Miguel D: I wanted a European style that doesn't wasn't a sports bike helmet for my ducati monster. This is a 10/5 to me in style with the protection that a higher end helmet offers. I did not chose this for the "bank for the buck" factor. Dec 2, 2014
Jhon D: Like the shape Nov 2, 2014
Jonathan Anthony C: Why not? Oct 2, 2014
J I: Going from an adjustable shield to a complete naked Speed Triple and this seemed like the way to go without breaking the bank. Sep 1, 2014
Shahram M: I desire a helmet with great field of vision and solid full face protection, style is also a contributing factor since I'd rather be noticed for something that fits the style of my motorcycle. Aug 14, 2014
Andres V: Badass Helmet Jul 1, 2014
Robin M: Looks mean, perfect for riding in the city, real comfy, I can hear the wind a lot though, I don't think I would be using it for highway riding. As for delivery, well I live in China and got it in less than 10 days, awesome service from Revzilla, thanks guys. Jun 26, 2014
Ian H: this item seems perfect for what i was looking for. I have a 2014 fz-09 and wanted a helmet to suite the straight up riding position after speaking with Matt from customer service to get his opinion on what helmets to consider he confirmed that this helmet would be the perfect fit.

Kenneth K: I've only had noise issues over 85mph and I'm riding a K1200R (virtually no fairing). For long rides (over 100 miles), I have my ear buds in and don't need to really bring up the volume. For shorter ones (<50 miles), I don't wear ear plugs. If I hit the NY State Thruway or the NJ Turnpike, I put a pair in to keep my sanity and drown out the distractions. Bottomline: I really like the helmet. Great ventilation. Great visibility. Sound attenuation is good. Super light. A minimalist helmet. I have an Arai XD3 and I don't even bother wearing it anymore.

Justin M: I'm on a GSXR-750 so I'll have some degree of wide deflection and I don't ride the highways too much. Thanks for the info! Sep 3, 2014
Eric P: In my experience, at highway speeds (~70mph) and above the wind noise can get pretty loud and it also starts to slightly whistle, especially at 3/4 to full tuck, depending on which direction the wind blows. But I eventually got used to it so it's not enough to annoy me. I always wear hearing protection when on highways, so when I don't with this helmet, my ears definitely start to hurt. But with earplugs, it's just fine. Sep 3, 2014

Harlin T: I believe this helmet to be suited for both head shapes. I myself have a very round head, but find great comfort in this model despite the tightness around the cheeks and ears. Someone with a more narrow head would appreciate the snug, form-fitting nature of the forehead, jaw, and lower neck. Feb 12, 2014

The EVO naked is exciting and it's really a new flavor from AGV.  Now, they've had the AX8 which is their super premium dirt helmet forever.  Then they went to the AX-8 DS which was the dual sport inspired with the shield and the peak.  The EVO version has some of the same nuances as the DS EVO, but really moving into 2013 what they've really done is just dropped the peak, murdered it out in matte black, and given us a helmet that we've already seen.  Strong gravitational pull from the Ducati crowd.  And that's anybody from a multi strata to a diavel to a monster to the V Twin side of things. 

Think about a guy on a big blacked out bad ass Harley smoked shield wearing gear, one of those guys that doesn't like a half helmet, this is going to go with everything.  Now, you'd wear it a lot of riding styles and honestly it is a full face helmet with the shield because you don't have that peak that's going to get in the way.  It's not a dual sport style, but again it has just that aggressive line, almost that fighter pilot dirt inspired look to it because I believe this helmet did truly start in the AX8 form as the dirt helmet. 

Now, before I walk through all the nuances, and I am going to completely break it down, lets talk about fit shape.  The fit is going to be the same as the AX8 EVO and the AX8 EVO DS, I consider it an intermediate oval head shape.  It definitely has a fuller profile along the cheeks and the cheek pad and through the neck roll I did about a thousand miles in the baby brother or the peaked version of this helmet in that DS version when I did the Italian legendary tour with Dainese. Loved the helmet, extremely lightweight, 3 pounds 1.2 ounces from a medium.  That's absurd for an ECE rated helmet. 

But I will tell you that there are no speaker pockets in it so my one big gripe with this helmet still is that if you want to use a comm system and again you are going to take away from the sexiness of it but a comm system with anything that is more than a really thin speaker you're going to feel that, you are going to have to do some internal surgery on those cheek pads to be able to fit them in.  So, keep that in mind, intermediate oval head shape, no surprises there.  Remember it's over 39 bucks we ship for free.  As always no restock fees, we make it easy on you. 

Love to hear your gut reaction right now though.  Just first glance at the AGV AX-8 Helmet click here, subscribe to revzillaTV on YouTube channel and leave me any questions, comments, tell me if you love it or if it's a high side which is my new term for things that I like. 

Moving right along, lets start from the outside shell and move our way in.  I told you its 3 pounds and 1.2 ounces.  Super super lightweight.  Carbon fiber kevlar, and resins dine-ma here in the outer shell.  Extremely light.  That is the claim to fame on this very aggressive angular line shell.  Now if we look at some of the functionality right and you're looking at it, one of the things again, it's very much a flat optically correct shield here as you are working through the front, but it's not a quick change shield release mechanism.  It's a little bit more difficult, it would take a screw, its a flat-head.  Again, not going to be as super fast as one of those helmets that you are expecting to do that all the time.  That's just one of the trade-offs when you're coming in sub $400 on a helmet that's very functional, very light, but its stripped down to look really really gnarly. 

Now walking through the ventilation scheme here right, you have three main vents in the front.  You have my chin vent, open and close, very easy, vents the face of the shield.  The other nice thing with the chin vent is you are able to swap it out for the AX 8 dirt version if you want to go for more of that Bane look and just have that front foil grill going.  You are going to have two chimney vents on top, integrated with the IVS system this has really taken some flavor and DNA from the GP Tech helmet that AGV came out with which has really developed with Raw C [sp] and the previous generation, again, integrated into the shell and the EPS it's going to flow a ton of air.  That's a nice touch. 

And you do have passive venting here in the back with my venturies [sp] and they are angled so you are not going to get any rain stuck in there if you get caught in a downpour.  But they do have that angle remember, full speed, full scale air going across the top over sphere it creates a vacuum speed and its going to pull that warm moist air off of your scalp and out through the back of the helmet.

One of the things I do think is really cool when you look at this shell though, because this ridge was originally developed to take a goggles trap, because remember it started as a dirt helmet, it just adds a really cool, interesting flare to this helmet.  And on an interesting side note, when I rode the Italian legendary tour on a multi strata in Italy, I actually had the DS version of this helmet and I took the peak off and I just left the holes on the side because It just looked so serious, and I think they saw a lot of customers doing that and they said lets just make a blacked out, murdered out, no frills, naked version and go from there.

So when you think about some of the other components here and lets break it down from the inside out, again no surprises here.  It's the basics, it's what you need.  So it's going to have a nice interior, it's going to be a dry, wicking interior, removable chin curtain up front on the front end of the helmet here.  Remember the EVO version got this as a softer element, because it used to have that Hawksville peak that was hard on the bottom and in a crash you could kind of hit your sternum, so you don't have that anymore. You can see some of the venting on the side of the vent roll as well done in a molded plastic.  If I begin to pull everything out, I mean again, it's going to be double d ring construction, dry lugs, fully encompassing cheek pads that are going to hug you really tight. 

They are, it's almost a race fit on this bad boy.  And you notice these cheek pads too they come out very simply, they are also going to have a reflective element so you have some of that nice safety baked in.  Now if I start to pull my comfort liner out, it's a 3d comfort liner, it's one of the newer styles from AGV we see big cutaways in the top.  Remember a lot of this helmet was developed as a dirt helmet, that knew that someone was going to be sweating and would need to breath so it will-- it's going to allow your head to breathe, notice they are getting those snaps and those seams away from pressure point areas, they have done a nice job here.  And then as we move through the interior, and you get a good gauge of how that breaks down, IVS system with those big channels, fore and aft vents coming out are going to circulate air around and you should be good to go. 

And remember, if I had to nitpick anything you are talking sub $400 insanely lightweight, very aggressive looking.  Remember, it's not one of those comm friendly units that we have.  It's just not.  And that's ok if you have a comm unit that has some of the bigger speakers that are a little bit thicker, and again it's going to take you a little bit of an extra step to change that system here or to change out your shield. And honestly if you are buying this bad boy you better be buying a dark smoke shield and just go from there.
