AGV Horizon Absolute Italy Helmet (Size XS Only)
defective shield..Can't use it.
Tinted shield is defective. Can't see though it clearly. Would expect usable quality for a helmet in this price range.

I saw this helmet at various other sites for a significant price reduction however I could not find my size! so i ended up here and paid 'regular' price.
Let's talk about the helmet. It fits well and I do like the internal visor. It's relatively light and has all the things a helmet should have.
The design itself is what it is. I'm a bigger fan of the sister helmet in the AGV Horizon line but this helmet is more rounded which fits my head while the others are a tad more narrow.
I have TWO big complains about this helmet.
First off is the cushion insert for the neck on either side. It pretty much slides out everytime you take your helmet off. Not sure if it's a design flaw etc. You just have to push them back in but an unnecessary hassle.
the 2nd major flaw is the strap on the buckle side. The location of the buckle is just a tad pass the bottom of the helmet and makes buckling the helmet an impossibility with gloves on. Even with bare finger's it's much more of a hassle than needed. All AGV had to do was sew the buckle 1" lower on the strap.. This would have no functional or safety impact at all to the helmet.
I probably would not have bought this helmet if it was from B & M store but since it was a Revzilla purchase I'll keep it due to their no free return policy on the postage.
The helmet does come with a couple of AGV stickers and an optional chin hood insert

I bought this AGV being new to motorcycling and moto gear and had seen this model in a local shop, loved the graphics and aggressive looks, after researching a bit I saw AGV was a great brand and within a reasonable price (would love Schuberth's but VERY expensive as you know). The drop down sun visor is a great feature, the air flow is good, great if you take the wind "thingy" or gaiter or however it's called. The intercom readiness was tested until a year later but I have Sena's SMH10R and works to perfection (take the earpads out so the fit is better) and took the boom thanks to the chanels inside the helmet. My only little downside (and this canbe put slightly on me) is that i once fell from a bench (12in high) and the spoiler got spoiled. I would've hoped it lasted a little bit more. Other than that, that again can be blamed on me and my distraction, the helmet is amazing!

Great secondary helmet
Bought this as the girlfriends first helmet, we had tried on many but couldn't find "the one" and I wanted it to be perfect. Bought this one blind online and it wound up being the most comfortable out of all of them! internal sun visor works very well as well as vents are easy to open and shut, and the liner is easy to take out to wash. Only issues are installing the SENA was a challenge and the chin has a point which can sometimes dig into my shoulder

Great Helmet- Great Value and Bang for the Buck - All Around Performer
This helmet is the nicest I ever owned. Typically I have owned the lower line HJC helmets. I wanted something nicer with an internal sunvisor with good air flow due to the heat in LA. Phenomenal air flow and the best I have seen in a closed face helmet. The internal sunvisor works for me and the helmet is a great bang for the buck.

Ok, where to start with this helmet.
First off this helmet fits very well on me and doesn't feel like it is squeezing your head off.
Secondly the speaker cut outs in the helmet work like a dream but the whole mic cut out in the front is pointless because its not deep enough for a mic in the first place and if you choose to use it you are going to rub your chin or mouth on the mic the whole time your riding.
There is a whistling noise coming through the helmet when you ride at speeds above 55mph that i have to figure out how to fix so its not so annoying when on the highway.
The internal sun visor is an awesome feature that i will be looking for in helmet in the future but it could have been extended about half inch lower i feel but it is still good for this helmet.
Overall this helmet is a very good helmet but i can only compare it to the HJC FG-17 Force which in my opinion is a better overall helmet then the AGV Horizon and is half the price of this 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!
