AGV Grid Sheene Replica 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!

This helmet really speaks for itself being an iconic Rossi. I personally love this helmet to death. The design is fantastic, an absolute head turner. I have wanted this helmet for quite some time and became ecstatic the moment I received it in the mail. Revzilla did a very fast job sending it to me, very impressive.
Overall, I find this grid helmet to be just what I wanted. It's light and has sufficient airflow. There was a little bit more wind noise than I anticipated but it was not enough to bother me. That noise level (for those who know) I would place in between an Icon which is quite loud, and a Shoei which is very quiet. I have the Chatterbox x1 slim installed and I can still clearly hear my music and my fellow riders when communicating.
I vote yes!

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.
