Helmet Upgrade After using hand me down helmets for years, this was my first purchase of a quality helmet that I'm very please to own. The helmet fits snug but not restrictive, with good air flow, lightweight, and looks sharp too. I haven't been able to compare against other comaprable helmets, but felt the road noise could be improved on. September 3, 2014
Great helmet and quality but ear space and fit could be better... As indicated in the title, I have no doubt about the quality and the fit and finish of this helmet, as with all AGV products. But I must admit that the ear space is a bit weird for me and not fully confortable. Yes I have "large ears" : ) but it seems the "flaps" under the ear space plays around with the bottom of my ears which after a few hours gets a bit annoying... Nothing major really, I guess adjusting (removing a piece of it) could help in the futur, but I would expect from such a quality company to have an "option" for larger ears. Again, great hat, perfect design (funky) and the paint-prints are of perfect quality. After more than 2000 miles, it looks like new as for the internal components. The internal pads are of excellent quality, but I would also add a bit more air flow in the hat. Even with the top and chin vents open, as I have long hair, it doesn't quite give me all that I want and may get a little warm after a few hours in the sun. September 7, 2014
a great one from AGV Great helmet, especially for the price. The ventilation is very good, keeps you nice and cool. It is pretty light, so your neck doesn't get fatigued on long rides. It is fairly quiet, but I still wear plugs. I got the blue stigma graphics and they look nice. also, the visor is very easy to remove and change. After doing it a couple times, it takes no time at all. I also purchased a dark visor, which I also recommend. September 3, 2014
Very Versatile helmet, for track or street use Very happy with this purchase, Fits true to size chart, fairly light weight and quiet. I think this is a very solid choice if your going to go with one helmet for both track and street. Another solid product from AGV/ Dainese. July 7, 2014
Great Helmet Very comfortable helmet that goes great with the paint job on my Interceptor. August 17, 2014
Great helmet in its class First off, wow! The graphics on this helmet are great. The airflow isn't bad around the head, but once you open the chin vents get ready, because wow do they breathe. The fit and finish are what you would expect from AGV, with the materials being durable but very comfy. July 14, 2014
Great product, and great service Great helmet, and great service from Revzilla. The instructional, and review videos are a great way to buy online. And the people of Revzilla makes your life easy with fast shipping (faster than I expected since I'm in Canada), and no hassle in case of returning the product. Revzilla is a must stop for all riders. June 16, 2014
Great Helmet I initially got this helmet because I tend to get hot especially living here in the south. The helmet has great airflow and comfort, not to mention its looks awesome. June 9, 2014

A S asked: How is the protection of AGV Grid compared to SNELL approved helmets? Jan 1, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Kyle Y: The levels of protection are going to be very comparable. ECE2205 and SNELL are both much higher standards than the ordinary DOT testing. Here is a video from Web Bike World showing the importance of a good helmet and the different safety standards tests they must pass. "DOT versus ECE Motorcycle Helmet Safety Standards"

Another video from Jafrum explaining the differences in testing methods very clearly, "SNELL vs DOT vs ECE Helmets - Motorcycle Helmet Safety Ratings" around the 5:10 mark is where they get into SNELL vs ECE.

Hope this helps :-)

Bryan B: Well I cant fully answer that because I havent hit the ground with it (yet). However through the research and everything else I have seen it rates at the snell level if not better. I can tell you that it fits great and feels comfortable. Jan 1, 2014
Reply to Bryan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Benjamin S: ECE 2205 is actually a higher rating than Snell due to the fact that is needs to meet the standards of all European countries. I believe ECE 2205 goes through a more rigorous testing process than Snell to meet its requirements. Jan 1, 2014

A shopper asked: If the sizing of the head fits but smaller or larger cheek pads are needed, would that be something you at Revzilla could fix or would I have to buy another set of cheek pads from somewhere else? Mar 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Justin F: Not a RevZilla employee, but you'd most likely have to buy new cheek pads separately. While RevZilla does have a great return policy, you can't just send back cheek pads (from a helmet purchase) and expect to get new ones. RevZilla does sell the cheek pads for this helmet as I have purchased them as I wanted a snugger fit. Mar 2, 2014

Deki D asked: how does the scala rider G9 fit into this system? please advice. on the HJC symax 3 the spacing between the foam and the helmet was big enough to slide it in but the foam seems to be stuck pretty well on the AGV Grid. Thanks Oct 28, 2013

Exel G: Ive have the grid and the u-connect,
you can fit the u-connect speakers, but i had to cut off a good chunk of foam with a razor knife to put in place, the agv does not come with speakers pockets so you will also have to make a circular opening on the inner liner plastic, it worked fine for me.
love my grid, not so happy with the quality of the sound of the u-connect.
Good Luck

The Grid Helmet is going to be the second-in-command in the AGV sport helmet line-up. It's going be a slightly less technical than the GP Tech which is really the race bred helmet that you see Rossi in every two weeks in MotoGP. But the GP Tech is going to fall in that really high-end, aggressive sport and sport touring helmet range. If you look at it, it's an aggressive shape, you're starting it around the black and white solid colors in that $400 range, and then you're moving up to the legends, the Lucchinelli, the Agostini replicas, and eventually into that Rossi race replica helmets to some of the retro throw-back graphics in that $550 range. But what you're getting in this newly redesigned helmet is a few key upgrades over the T2, which used to be second in the food chain from AGV.   
 
The big upgrade's going to the grid. The first is the shield change mechanism, has gotten a decent improvement. And when I say it's been improved, we're still using the same visor system that comes with the tear-off post, but it's really the change mechanism which is part of the base plate that's been improved. You can still retrofit any of the old, you know, T2 or GP Tech shields under this, but the way that we change it, it's just going to be very easy. So you'll see it pops right off. And then when I line it up, it's a bit easier to wrangle on there after you do it once or twice. It becomes very simple.

Now, we're seeing a lot of manufacturers improve their process. But again, you know, in years past, I really think it was the spring-loading of the mechanism that was just a bit too tense, and it was a little bit harder to work with. It's very, very easy now. The second key upgrade, moving into this grid, is going to be the guts. It's a new 3D fit pattern which is a bit more ergonomic, a bit more contoured to your face. They're also using Dri-Lex now, and what Dri-Lex is is really a, even a step further when it comes to that microfiber microsuede feel, very, very comfortable, antimicrobial, antibacterial, but it's going to be very comfortable throughout. And, actually the stitching on the comfort liner, which we'll pull out in a little bit, looks a bit different as well.

You know, at the top level, again we talked about second-in-command. You're getting a high-end, sport-like helmet  that you're investing in that's going to be D.O.T certified, ECE-2205, carbon fiber fiberglass, and Dyneema composite, and when you use those more specific materials, you get the ability to have a more lightweight helmet. That's going to be a bit stronger versus your typical polycarbonate. That would make this helmet a bit heavier using a little bit less expensive materials. We have a medium, we threw it on the scale, we came out at three pounds, 6.8 ounces, which in our opinion is a reasonably light-weight helmet. 

You know, moving into the fit pattern, it's one of the things you really need to think about when you're looking at a helmet that you're going to wear every time you're riding. This we considered about an intermediate to intermediate-long oval head shape. So, it's a little bit longer front-to-back, but really it's in that same range that you'd see from Shoei, you'd see from some of the shark helmets, some of the longer arise. It's going to be something that going to work well for most people that aren't a complete neutral or a round head shape.

Now, moving on from there into some of the more nuanced features in this helmet, you know, we talked about the shield change mechanism. Let's talk about venting for a second. You're going to have a chin vent that's operated internally, and there's a switch that's easy to operate with a glove that you see right on the inside, here. You'd actually reach up. They pulled it away from the design. Moving up, you have two vents that are going to be brow vents that are going to vent to the forehead, and they're side-to-side. You know, they're part of this IVS system as I tilt the helmet up - it's the same IVS system that we see in the GP Tech, and what that is is versus having an external piece that is going to be mounted to the head to create this channel, they've actually managed to make an ECE2205 helmet with these channels built in, these ridges built in the helmet. So when you pull the guts out, you're actually going to see that ridge being mimicked on the EPS liner of the helmet where the vent holes come through. And again, it's going to create a better channel for airflow.
  
As we move the helmet toward the back, two big non-open non-closed Venturi vents. They're going to be open all the time, but they do have a cover across the top. So if you're raining, if you get hit in the rain, or stuck in the rain, you're going to get a good amount of protection from any of the elements getting in that way. But really, what you have to remember when we talk about Venturi vents is air at high speed flowing over a sphere creates low pressure behind it. And what that does, is it's going to suck the warm moist away from your scalp that passes through the front of the helmet and pull it out the back. Also notice that we have two little winglets at the bottom as well that are going to act as secondary Venturi vents that are going to be down and along your jawline.

As we flip the helmet onto its side, notice that we talked about the comfort liner. It's going to be different. It's going to be a similar, snugly fitting neck roll, removable chin spoiler. You know, at this point, I could start to walk into the guts of this helmet. So moving inside, you're going to see, the first thing I'll note is that chin vent operation right on inside of the front lip here. And let's start to break it down. So we have a neck roll that is fully removable, fully washable, antimicrobial. Again, it's Dri-Lex and a mixture of CoolMax, which are going to allow it to last for a long time but be very comfortable. It's even double-sided, so if you get any of that pressure against your jawline, you'll feel it's just as comfortable from the bottom side. 

And then we move into the newer design of the cheek pads. Two, typically three from AGV, there you go. My favorite upgrade on this helmet is that you're going to have a really rock-solid cut-out for a communication system. We're seeing more and more that whether it's Athena, Cardo, BlueAnt, people are installing com systems that either allow them to pair with their mobile phone or their music, or bike-to-bike. You're going to have that nice big cut-out. If you don't have that cut-out, you end up having to do a little bit of surgery on your cheek pad, where that earpiece, just, the speaker's not going to fit and it's going to create a pressure point. By having that big cut-out, it just becomes a very easy 5-minute install. But also notice the profile of this, top-to-bottom. See how it's going to hug your face, whereas in the previous model, which we consider the T2 to be the previous model to the Grid. It had a more flat contour there, and wasn't as ergonomic. And from the backside again, you're going to see your three snap points.

Pull out the other guy, 1-2-3, here's my left side cheek pad. And then, really when it gets to the comfort liner you also have a redesign here too. It's going to be four snaps, and when we pull it out, you're going to see that it's a redesigned comfort liner with some, some effort made to pull the seams away. And then notice how the snaps are actually living on floating tabs here that have some movement to them. The whole point is to not make pressure points. You know, it's very easy to do the back of the neck, because this is an area that typically has extra cushioning, but when you start to get into that forehead realm, by moving these away from the center of the forehead, and putting them on their own tabs, you give a better chance for them to really almost be a custom fit of where they live once you're head's in the helmet. And, again, notice there is a good deal of padding and then we do have our mesh panels that are going to integrate with that IVS, the integrated ventilation system, to give you a good amount of airflow.

I'm going to turn it inside-out for a second again, and just show you again the Dri-Lex, that really comfortable moisture-wicking material that's going to be very comfortable against your head. And then, you know, AGV and Dainese are the same companies these days, so there's no, there's no loss here from the attention to detail; we have microsuede Italian flag built into the AGV.

The last thing I want to hit here on the grid, again, is the IVS system. You're going to see if you come in really tightly that we have multiple vent holes, and then we have two big channels at the front and at the rear, to where the air is going to almost get pulled through the big scoop that's built into the outer shell. Again, a nice upgrade from a ventilation standpoint. You know, we've ridden these helmets in the past, the T2, we've ridden GP Tech's, and we find that the IVS system works really well in warm-weather scenarios, especially for people who run hot. Now myself, I run cold. I'm not one of those people who is always sweating. We do have a lot of customers that are always dying as soon as they start layering up on the bike. And it's going to be a nice ventilation feature.
