AGV Horizon Absolute Italy Helmet
Great bang for the buck!
I have worn many helmets but the AGV Horizon is by far the most comfortable and best looking. It hugs the face perfectly and has great airflow. The space right by the mouth for the microphone is extremely convenient and helps during long trips. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a high quality helmet for a steal of a price!

Comfortable wear. although the padding in the back of the helmet comes out and always needs adjustments. other than that it is great quality and very comfortable.

I am very happy with the helmet. It is true to size, as quiet as the Shoei R-1000 I am replacing. The style is aggressive. I like the internal visor, and I have found it very comfortable around town with the main visor up and the internal down. There is a good deal of wind protection from the internal visor. Airflow could be more.

Bought it for internal air flow but disappointed
Bought this helmet for the internal air flow since I live in FL; however, it does not appear to make any difference if the vent is open or closed. I've expected more.
in addition, the internal visor have a tendency to get caught and failed to work properly. The lever to flip it up and down doesn't work properly and I don't even get to go out much.
Pick a different model or brand.... not worth it. Worst of it all is that I bought two.... :(

A lot of little problems.
This helmet is the sum of a million problems that completely overshadow what may otherwise be a good product. I find myself annoyed every time I put on the helmet, strap it up and take it off. Frankly, for me, this was a gigantic regret of a purchase, even when I got it on closeout pricing.
First, the good. I really like the look of this helmet and this was probably the biggest deciding factor for me originally. It has a semi-aggressive styling that's clean and sleek. The padding is also a good material, though it comes super-stiff.
Second, the neutral-to-bad. This helmet does have quite a bit of features. But most of them aren't executed all that well or feel cheap. Many helmets priced $100 less have the same features. For instance, the flip-down sun visor only covers about half your vision and the vents, even when open, do not provide much air flow. Also, the mechanism to remove the visor is strangely aggravating in that it's not a quick release like most others are. There's a tab to push and then you almost need to twist the visor off (feeling like you're going to break it in the mean time).
Third, the bad and the annoying. And there's a lot of bad (in no particular order):
-The visor does not have a cracked setting. It's either open two inches or closed.
-The visor also doesn't have a good seal, allowing quite a bit of wind noise.
-The slider for the front vent can not be accessed if you are wearing the helmet with the chin curtain.
-The chin curtain doesn't strap in on the sides and therefore comes undone at random times.
-The cheek pads aren't snapped in on the bottom, they are merely slid into a slot which is fairly easy to pull out.
-The forehead padding is not attached to the helmet at all, so when you put the helmet on, you push the padding up and it's nearly impossible to pull back down.
-The chin strap has little comfort padding the snap itself is so close to the helmet it is hard to snap in place even without gloves on.
Overall, I feel that if this helmet were priced in the $100-150 range it would fit right in. But for $300+ (or $250+ on closeout) it fails miserably.

This helmet whistles like crazy, the visor cracks open at speed, letting in a burst of air into your eyeballs esp. when going over 80mph due to lack of visor locking capability. Looks GREAT but that's about it!! Should have gotten the Shoei

All around great helmet!
The internal sun visor was the initial draw, then upon viewing the revzilla review video the icing on the cake was the quality of the internal liner and the ready speaker holes and removable chin guard area for a boom mic. The neutral to round shape is also a better fit for my dome. Better than average comfort and functionality. It boasts an aggressive look. As a side note, I installed the Sena 3s-b bluetooth speaker/intercom which I also purchased for a great price here at revzilla and the fit was perfect for this helmet.
