AGV Grid Nieto Replica Helmet
Although i didn't purchase this helmet from revzilla
i want to write a small review about it
the helmet looks fabulous in person
and the colors are vibrant and very eye catchy
the helmet being a race spec helmet,
and is not suitable for naked bikes( i ride a 2014 Street triple),
because it makes constant noise right from 40 Mph
but when it tucked position its absolutely noise-less
being a race helmet
the area near the cheeks and jaws are fit snugly in a tapered shape
but for me its little uncomfortable near the ear whenever i wear it
the helmets offers a narrow vision
u need to get used to it
one can feel the constant air flow from the front intake
the helmet is slightly on the heavier side and my neck pains slightly during long rides
Overall a great helmet in this price range and the graphics are outstanding
i purchased an iridium silver visor and it looks cool

This product has a great two tone design.
I'm a new rider and this is my first helmet. So far it's great the air flow is is pretty good and it's a head turner. I'd definitely recommend this helmet.

Best for track or heavy sport use
This helmet is perfect fit for me. Keep in mind this is a very snug track style fitting helmet, there is literally zero movement while riding. I prefer this fit, the noise level is good, and is pretty light weight for its price point. Sharp helmet ratings gave it a 4/5 giving a higher rating then the Shoei GT air, HJC RPHA 10 or a number of Arai helmets in there line. So in summary this will not be my last AVG helmet.

Great helmet especially for the price
I bought two other helmets last year before I bought this one and all I can say after wearing this one for a year is WOW! The quality and the fit is unreal when compared to equal helmets. If anyone is considering buying it....DO IT. You will not regret it.

This is a nice helmet I really like the design graphics gets a lot of attention the only thing I did not like is the chin strap is a little too short so when I buckle it fits tight

Very nice helmet with stunning graphics
In my opinion, the quality and design of this helmet is among the nicest that I have ever seen. The paint and clear coat are deep and lustrous and the fit and finish is very nice.
I wear a size medium and it weighs around 3lbs, 5 oz., which is pretty light. For the most part, the helmet is extremely comfortable, with a couple of caveats. One, the helmet is a little tight when attempting to pull it on. You have to pull the straps out a little to spread it apart to get it to slip on without pain to your ears. Once it is on, everything is comfortable and plush. The other caveat is that, if you have a rather prominent proboscis like me, your nose may touch the face shield or chin-bar. You can move the helmet around a little and find a sweet spot, but it is a little aggravating. I would also say that the helmet is more race-oriented than touring and works better on a sportbike than an upright touring bike, as the helmet sits a little high on the face, giving better vision without lifting your head.
The other area that is interesting is that the helmet is very quiet on a naked or semi-naked bike like my '78 Z1-R, but pretty noisy when I am riding my Versys with an MRA windscreen. Since I wear earplugs on long trips, this is not that big a deal, but something to be aware of.
The flip-up face shield has very good optical quality, seals well, and stays securely in each of its 5 positions. Shield removal is a little tricky, but not difficult.
Ventilation at the chin is above average and average at the brow vent. However, I found that it was a little awkward to access the chin adjuster with gloves on, which is located on the inside of the helmet in the chin bar area.
One area that I think AGVs work better than most helmets is that they don't seem to fog up as badly as some, like my S---- and B---- helmets.
I know that I may appear to be a little unsatisfied with some aspects of the helmet, but, on the whole I am very happy with the purchase. It is a beautiful, comfortable, and very well made helmet with a very effective face shield and works great when I have to deal with weather that fogs up other helmets to the point that I can't ride unless the shield is partially open. Would definitely buy it again!
