AGV Horizon Helmet - Solid Colors

The design of the AGV Horizon largely reflects that of the Stealth SV, which it replaces in the line. Inspired by the lines that have characterized the innovations by AGV for several years now, it features a narrow, streamlined chin guard, the channels in the shell (derived from the IVS used in the RACE helmets), evident lines and edges on the sides. The spoiler adds an aggressive and dynamic touch to the design and improves the ventilation, aerodynamics and stability of the helmet. The removal of the holes and lateral grids not only gives the AGV Horizon a more compact look, but has made it possible to reduce turbulence and improve the aerodynamics.

Features:

  • Shell: Carbonglass (Fiberglass and carbon shell)
  • Shell Sizes: 2
  • EPS Liner: Multi-density
  • Ventilation System: IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with channels formed directly in the outer shell and dynamic system with air vents and rear extractors
  • Interior: Dry-Lex with sanitizing treatment
  • Internal Padding: Completely removable and washable
  • Removable chin curtain and breath deflector included
  • Faceshield: GT2 clear visor in optical class 1
  • Faceshield: Non-scratch and anti-fog polycarbonate with 100% protection from UV radiation
  • Visor Mechanism: XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) visor removal and replacement without tools in just a few seconds
  • Internal Sunshield: Drop down ISV (Internal Sun Visor) is non-scratch and anti-fog polycarbonate
  • Retention System: Double D
  • Safety Certification: DOT and ECE 22.05

AGV Horizon Helmet - Solids 4.3 5 23 23
Excellent ventilation and protection I have just ridden from from San Francisco to Tucson with a nearly purchased AGV Horizon from my local store (my prior helmets were a Shoei RF-1100 and a GT-air). During the trip I had had a big crash after hitting a small deer, going down hard face first and skidding for 60-80 feet face first. The helmet shield remained shut the entire time and while the helmet needs to be replaced, it did an amazing job protecting my head. I was able to ride two more days to Tucson. Some general observations. I find the venting excellent on the helmet - the chin flows a ton of air onto my face and you can feel the air flowing over your head when the top vents are opened. The internal shade works nicely, although it takes a little time getting used to the small tab on the left side of the helmet that moves it up and down. I wear a smoke visor as well and was pleased how dual smoke visors worked crossing the desert. I didn't need sunglasses. The chin strap seems to be a little too much to the left. Not sure why it isn't more centrally located. Apart from that, it's a fantastic helmet with a great fit for my head. I wore it in the store for 30 minutes before purchasing. I tried numerous AGV helmets, but this one felt the best. I just ordered a replacement one with Revzilla. :) July 19, 2014
Nice Helmet So I waited till summer to review this helmet because I live in Florida. Air flow is good, to me this was the most important thing, yes you still get hot but it has got good vents so when your moving very comfortable and it's 95 at the moment. Sizing, I fell between 2 sizes and I opted for the larger size. Now the helmet is broken in it is a little loose but still secure and will not come off my head. Maybe I should have gone with the smaller size I don't know? Vision is super clear. The sun visor/ glasses? not bad. To me it's fine, I wear glasses and these just take the glare away, could be a tiny bit darker. Vision wise not fantastic but good enough, not sure how to say it but it's clear but you can see lines if you look carefully. I knew this when I bought it and to me not a deal breaker. The helmet is quite noisy but I ride a cruiser and it's got a big air kit on it so it's gonna be load anyway. Slightly lighter than the average helmet imo and it's got the sunglasses in as well remember, very comfortable helmet to wear padding is real good. Ok, is it worth the money ? is anything? Would I buy it again? F*** yeh, in a heart beat. not only is it a sexy looking helmet but it's very comfortable, air flow is really good and no fogging. June 30, 2014
Very happy with this helmet Unfortunately my Bell Star helmet didn’t match my new Ducati so I searched for something affordable, in the mid-performance level that looked great. My purchase of the AGV was just what I was looking for. Just having the retractable sun visor was worth the purchase. It is so convenient not having to switch visors to tinted or wearing sunglasses. Just a flick of the leaver and you have instant shades. The only problem I found is that the cheek pads seem to fit quite tight. They are beginning to break in but are still a bit uncomfortable. Other than this, I am very happy and would highly recommend this helmet. Above the features, it looks very sick. July 21, 2014
Great Helmet this is an awesome helmet. I've compared it to the Shoei GT Air, the Shoei 1200 and the HJC FG17. For my head, its the best fit together with the Shoei 1200. Its relatively light (given all its features) and has an excellent sun visor that is especially handy if you wear glasses. The quality of the visor seems somewhat less than the Shoei or even the HJC (even thou thats a 180$ helmet). There are slight reflections on the visor and it seems to collect "dirt" extremely easily...not a good job AGV! For 400$ i expect more. The upside of the visor? its 100% fog free without any pinlock inserts. The helmet overall is very comfortable with plenty of space for your ears, one of the main complaints I had with a lot of other helmets. I think this vs. the Shoei 1200 is almost a wash. What won me over is the styling (looks better than the 1200 IMO) and the additional features such as the internal sun visor. All in all, a very good helmet for the price. July 14, 2014
It's Aight I've put about 7500 miles on this thing in the last year- when I got it there weren't many reviews on it and it was a bit of an unknown quantity. I did get the iridium visor as well, but it's very pricy for what it is. So far, the helmet is fairly comfortable, though extra padding on top would help. My issues with it are: 1. Visibility. While I've dropped $120 on iridium visors for the exterior and interior, I find myself using my AX-8 more often due to the wider field of view. 2. Quality. By now, checking the sides allows the visor to open up about 3mm while at speed, resulting in a lot of noise and dirty air. I'm fine with this at $150, but edging $400? That's inadequate. The plastic hinge system is easily replaced though, and you get some diff. sets with it to start, so changing them out fixes it. 3. Internal visor quality is questionable. Again, at half this price, I'd accept it, even expect it. But AGV/Dainese is higher end gear. So why is it that the interior smoke visor broke within the first 8 hours of use? Once I replaced it, it is constantly getting the forward edges hung up on the forward brow of the helmet, scratching (the stupid expensive) safety glasses. So, for $360, this helmet is lacking. If it ever goes on sale, it's a better deal, but expect a maintenance schedule with it in the future. All the good stuff is still there, though it's not overly quiet. Easily swapped visors, good ventilation with positive, easy controls, a beautiful gloss finish on it, comfy liner, and stable feel at speed contribute to a very workable, classy helmet. But the 'premium' feature that tack so much on to the price do not live up to the hype. Having tried a number of helmets, I'd personally go for an AX-8 with some sunglasses instead of this, and that's where I've been going lately. This is a better option than the HJC equivalents with it's ridiculous shield retractor, and I do prefer it to the Arai's, but that's about it. January 24, 2014
This helmet makes me sad. Love the look of this lid and in my mind the AGV brand stands for quality, but given the price, I'm sorely disappointed ... The visor doesn't seal completely so there's always a gap If you turn your head to the side while at speed, the visor opens up It whistles louder than a drunken sailor The D ring is a pain, even without gloves. Yeah, I love the style, but if I could return it I would. For this amount of cash, I expect a whole lot more attention to detail. January 17, 2014
Best helmet I've had so far Double D chin strap. Great in the winter (down to -5 Celsius here, and a thin balaclava keeps me warm). Not too good for summer (can't really bear it after 30 Celsius, it's black..). Aerodynamics feel great. Unless u turn ur head to check the dead angle when over 100mph , as u escape the straight designed exterior airflow, the air will feel like suddenly pushing on ur head, but it don't feel flawed, it just feels like looking straight ahead makes all air resistance disappear. The inside dark visor is a bit loose when locked open, but moves only on hard bumps and don't ever enter the vision field, it and its lever give a feel of reliable stuff. There's a cool system of sliding releases for the main visor allowing removal in 2 sec. It comes with 3 sets of inserts, setting different stops for visor opening, one is either visor all up or all down, one ads 3 stops in between, last one has an extra stop which allows opening the visor only a few millimetres, nice for rains. I've worn it for about 5000 kilometers, a whole winter, every time it rained this year, I hit the top of the metal frame of my patio door a dozen times with it while passing through, on the visor sometimes too, and it's all in mint condition, few scratches on the side and behind, where it rubs on the wall i store it against, visor lost its fog proof screen fast but is like new. Its deterioration is a bothering stage, it's nice when it's all gone. Even after losing the fog proof screen there's little fog in the rain, only when u stop it really builds, decent interior airflow will usually clean the fog as u ride, u'll still need opening the visor at times in winter rains, or swap to the small visor opening insert, which takes 10 seconds. It's good stuff. November 15, 2013
First helmet and loving it so far Just got my licence so picked this up as part of my initial gear purchase. Helmet I got during the learner course didn't fit well, so have had experience of a bad fit, and this is the complete opposite. Have only done a bit of riding so far, but helmet has been really comfortable. Weather's been a bit variable, so have had the chance to test it out in wet and dry conditions, and dealt with it all well. Haven't had it out on a freeway yet, so not sure what noise will be like at speed, but otherwise very happy with my purchase! November 22, 2013

Diane D: I wanted an "aggressive" look to my helmet and chose the AGV Horizon. Sits just right on my head and I've also bedazzled the entire helmet to give it the style that suits me. It sure is a head turner everywhere I go. Sep 2, 2013

Ryderjay: I'd suggest going a size down. As you wear your helmet the padding will "break in" to your heads shape and fit a little looser. It's important to have a snug fit so going too large can compromise the performance of the helmet in a wreck. But if you find you don't like the bit you can always return it and get the other size. Mar 3, 2013

RevZilla: Short answer? Large. 99% of the time when someone is in between sizes, we recommend going with the smaller of the two. Helmets fit best when they are "comfortably snug," and since they break in - going with the smaller of the two sizes is your best chance at finding the ideal fit. Jan 31, 2013

Geir K: I followed that advice with my Shark helmet and after about 45 minutes riding, the headache kicked in. Everytime I rode. My nice, EXPENSIVE helmet was turned into a medieval torture tool. And now it was too late to return it. So I would go up a size. Apr 22, 2014

Jesse M: If you can fit into a size smaller comfortably, thats the route you take. I often find I am inbetween sizes on certain brands. The make model of the hlmet often effect which hlmet fits and how it fits. Aug 18, 2013

Yamabob: I'd recommend going with the one that's a little bit smaller. It should break in a bit and loosen up over time. If it's too big it may move around when riding or even worse, come off in a crash. Jan 28, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm currently looking to purchase a new helmet, as my current one has seen its day.
I'm going between the AGV Horizon and the AGV Skyline, as I know they are shaped a bit differently.
My current helmet is a rather old Arai Quantum 2, and it fits me (or, it did a few years ago, before the padding got worn in by 40k miles) perfectly.
Which of these would be the closer fit to that shape helmet? I believe it is classified as a "Round Oval"?

Bill H: I was very happy with my agv horizon as far as the fit, shape and especially the style. As far as the fit im pretty sure you can do the same size. I have the arai signet q as well and I wear a large in both. The agv is very comfortable and for me it almost felt like more of a custom fit to my head. Wind noise was a bit louder than I expected but if you wear headphones like I do it won't bother you. I got in an accident with it on as well and it held up great. So I'm actually going to buy the same exact helmet again. Hope the feedback helps! Jun 2, 2014

Michael D: I wore a Shoei Quest prior to buying the AGV Horizon and the new lid fits fine so I guess my hear is a "round oval" The air circulation is way better than the Shoei and the drop down internal visor is a real plus. The only negative with the AGV is that it's louder than the Shoei. I just wear Hearos ear plugs for a 32 decimal drop in noise. Jun 11, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi, is the visor pin lock ready? If not can I use pin lock with it? Jan 12, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael Z: No it's not pin lock ready. I've never used that set-up before so I don't know the requirements to use pin lock. But with just a quick Google search it looks like there is just two pins that hold a anti-fog shield in place.... seems like a easy DIY if you want to. Jan 15, 2014
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jason W: It's not. I think they sell a pinlock visor option or it's only available on other models.
I live in FL where it's either very humid or raining. The anti-fog is very good but I can definitely see benefit of going pin lock.

A shopper asked: Would you recommend the AGV Horizon to someone with an oval shaped head, when it's described as a neutral fitting helmet? Oct 21, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: There are three main categories that classify helmets; round oval, intermediate oval, and long oval. However, there is no set standard and all individuals have a unique head-shape. RevZilla's recommendations on shape are largely dependent on subjective customer feedback and previous helmet history. That said, this helmet fits similarly to the Shoei RF-1100 or Arai Vector 2 (which are both considered intermediate oval) in terms of front to back length.

For a personal helmet recommendation we would advise you to call and speak with one of our Gear Geeks who can ascertain some more specific information from you and hopefully guide you in the right direction.

Mark B: From Anthony's description in the video I get the impression the horizon is neutral to round... But if its similar to rf1100 it should be more oval. Any comment on that?
I like the shape of rf1100 and am interested in the horizon, but thought it would be too round from the video... Sep 22, 2013
Jesse M: I have an itermediate oval head. My best fitting helmet of all time has been the Shark RSI. The extended chin helps cover my long square head. I recently bought a AGV Horizon for Sun shield versitility and because of the shape of the helmet. If you side profile the Horizon it has that long chin area much like the RSI although not quite as long. I find it very comfortable and have had no issues other then my review points. Looking at the GP techs they seem to have that same profile, I wouldnt forsee issues ordering one. Aug 18, 2013

Mapache: Yup. I'm oval and it works well for me. It doesn't come down past the earlobes more than 1.5 inches on me, so you may want something longer in the rear though. May 21, 2013
