Great helmet, awesome purchasing experience
This a great looking helmet and extremely comfortable. I have the black Grid with the dark smoke visor. It's a much snugger fit than my much cheaper and older HJC but also more comfortable. I ride a black, white and silver Honda CBR 600RR so the black looks great! I've only had it for a couple of days but am very happy with the helmet and Revzilla for making it easy to find it.

I'm very pleased with the Grid. It is all I hoped for. Light feeling, good snug fit, keeps the wind out from underneath, decent visibility and E22.05 rated which I insist on.
It's tight going on and requires me to wiggle it some to get my ears right but that's a minor inconvenience. The visor is very positive on its stops and does not vibrate at speed. The only reason for the 4 on durabillty is that I've only used it for a month. The inner padding can be replaced & mixed and matched in thickness as desired.
Chin ventilation is great. As others have noted less so on the top vents but adequate. Not a hint of fogging in chilly weather.
Overall this one's a definite keeper.

Just so you know, I'm not a moto geek. I only point out what I like so if I don't call something by its proper name, take your meds and skip to the next word or sentence.
I was going to go GP-Tech but they didn't have my size at the Dainese store. I am comparing this to a $100 Bell Arrow helmet only because I had purchased it last year and would like to point out a few things vs the AGV Grid so those of you that wouldn't normally spend $400 on a helmet can get a better understanding.
First, the comfort level is fantastic with the AGV! The inner materials are soft, yet firm. All of the inner helmet lining can be pulled out easily to wash. The cut outs on the ears are perfect to fit your communication device on, if you so choose. The air flow vents work almost flawlessly. I say 'almost' because I felt a slight chill on my nose in 40 degree weather today. The Bell helmet is like being in a wind tunnel.
Second, the noise level is a night and day difference! I don't have to turn up my music as loud on my Scala G9 when using the AGV. The front design on the helmet helps with this a lot because of the downward angle of the helmet with the inner chin wind blocker on the bottom. The chin vent switch is also located on the inside of the helmet so the wind doesn't knock it down as you're riding which is what usually happens to the Bell.
It is a solid helmet but lighter than my Bell helmet due to the materials used on the outer shell.
I love the design and look of the helmet. I went with black to match the bike. I don't get 'custom designs' (I don't know if AGV has any for this particular helmet) because it's not custom unless you designed it or had someone design it for you. Someone, somewhere has the same helmet as you do so don't spend the extra dough. Have a painter or artist do something to it for you.
My ONLY real gripe is that the helmet is made so well that I had to remove the neck liner in order to install my Scala G9 into the side of the helmet. I'm not knocking the helmet, but now no neck liner for extra comfort. Oh well.
I would definitely recommend this helmet if you're looking for something in between intermediate and pro when it comes to price, durability and comfort.
Hope that helps.

Great Track Day Helmet
I use this helmet on the track and I have to say it's perfect for that. The fit is tight but not uncomfortable. The tear-offs are great if you (like me) are too lazy to clean the face shield after every outing. The only strange thing is that the helmet makes a whistling noise when I look down.

What you see is what you get. AGV!
Being new to the motorcycle world, I was looking for a helmet, solid color (black) and one that looked nice.
I stumbled upon the AGV T-2 helmet and i was ready to make a move, but then I saw that the T-2 was being phased out for the GRID.
I read a lot of the reviews for the T-2 and people were fairly happy with it.
The GRID has definitely not disappointed me! Good airflow with the vents, not too noisy when the wind goes into it. and you can see well.
It's not too heavy as well and comes with the AGV helmet bag.
When it comes to size, I had went to a local shop to try it on before actually purchasing it, so I'd recommend doing that first if you can so you also get to see if you like the style or not.
I'd recommend this helmet to anyone starting up and wanting style and comfort.
