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 13 13
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
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
This product is absolutely outstanding! So far I've had this helmet for a good 1 month and let me tell you, I get compliment after compliment on it. It looks very aggressive, but feels great on your head and also very light. I give this helmet a two thumbs up! August 26, 2013
AGV Horizon Great overall helmet. The best fitting helmet I've owned is a Shark RSI...I have a square jaw. This helmet comes close as the chin is longer. Fits great. True to size for roundness. Airflow is above average. Went with the matte black as I don't like the colour schemes. Major issue: Tends to whistle at higher speeds. Seems to be the lower mask or chin vent haven't isolated it yet. August 5, 2013
UPGRADE!! I have been riding with the helmet for a couple weeks now and it has been great to me! This helmet was an upgrade from my bell vortex. The bell had a lolipop shape and felt so heavy when at high speeds and when i was doing head checks. This helmet is perfect for those coming from the lower entry helmets like me. I have a really round head and i wore a large on the bell vortex but I ordered a medium for the horizon and its a snug but comfortable fit. The air flow is great. Its a lot of helmet for the price and it looks so dam gooood. August 5, 2013
Love it, but the little things add up The main reason I bought this helmet was for the integrated Bluetooth set. Don't buy for that reason, the AGVoice Bluetooth is garbage (everything about that is bad, but the worst thing is that it doesn't stream music, just calls) I returned it & got the Sena SMH10-11 which works great minus poor low Hz response... but this review is about the helmet, not the Bluetooth. The placement of the speaker cutouts are behind my ears & I had to modify the cheek pads to allow me to place the speakers in the proper location which still interfere with the top of the neck strap a little. Internal Sun Visor is great, It goes down low enough to get the sun at any time of day, but it could go down a bit lower to catch lower reflections as well as provide a bit more protection from debris when riding with the wind visor open for air flow. I also wish they would make a polarized visor instead of just iridium (the included is just plain smoke). I still find myself using sunglasses a lot, I prefer Condor V Safety glasses because they are very slim to fit in any helmet & they are only a buck a piece, so when the sun goes down & I don't have my backpack, I can just leave them on a table for someone else. Wind visor comes with a couple of different attachments for setting the pivot click to suit your needs which is cool, except that none of them keep it cracked as little as I want to be able to keep it on cold days when it fogs up, and at 80 mph none of them will hold the visor from snapping shut. Also, no matter how much I adjust the placement of the pivots, I can not get a whistle to go away where there is a short gap in the gasket, as a last resort I am going to get some silicone & beef up the gasket. It won't look as pretty, but hopefully It'll finally get a tight seal. The top liner can catch on your head when you're putting it on causing you to have to give it a little shake to sit right on your head, which causes a problem with keeping my hair brushed back while putting it on, not a problem if you have short hair. When I go to rub my itchy nose, I tend to disconnect the breath deflector & have to clip it back in place, but the other day I could not get it back in place and had to pull it off all the way and unzip my pocket to stow it until I reached my destination. The last gripe I have is about the strap. The snap at the end of the strap doesn't snap back on the strap itself like most helmets, it has a separate sewn on tab that you snap it to. It snaps on easy enough bare handed, but it takes a lot of practice & some gloves that allow for good finger sensitivity & dexterity to hold the flap in place while snapping it with your gloves on. Until you get used to it, you will be getting frustrated & having to take off your gloves to put your helmet on. Besides those points, I love the helmet. It is sleek & stylish, it is very light & aerodynamic, has good airflow, and its comfortable without too much wind noise for a helmet of it's weight. However, I don't know if I am going to get another AGV for my next helmet. Might break down and spend twice as much on a helmet that I wont be looking for a good excuse to replace. Kind of funny, when I started writing this review, I planned it to be positive, but I have talked MYSELF out of this helmet while writing it. Its amazing what you will put up with when you're trying to like a piece of gear. July 28, 2013
Best helmet I have owned My helmet history is as follows: HJC Symax 1 for about 13 months Scorpion EXO 1000 for 5-6 months HJC Symax 3 for about 1 month This AGV helmet is far superior to the others in terms of fit, build quality and pretty much everything else. The shield change is very easy and the shield is of high quality in that it doesn't stain easily and cleans up well. The airflow is excellent.. the top vents work great when needed and the face/chin vents are amazing. When opened, the face vents allow a LOT of air in, but can also be "adjusted" by tilting your head up or down. When tilted down, they let in only a bit of air and when tilted up (helmet bottom parallel with ground roughly) the airflow is simply amazing. The chin curtain is a great add-on to limit the air coming in from the bottom on those chilly nights and can easily be removed and placed in the pocket, after stopping of course. Lastly, the build quality is very solid and it just feels much better than any other helmet I've owned. Even after I rode only for about 100 miles with it, I wanted to buy a 2nd one just to have as a spare! Highly recommended. June 8, 2013
About average Looking for something with a day/night capability, I got this mostly for the quick change visor and internal sunshield. While both are fairly clear optically, the internal visor mounting leaves a bit to be desired. After a jolt to the helmet, a locking tab broke off leaving the internal visor nearly functionless. A good excuse to replace it with an iridium visor though. Fit and finish is fitting given the price range, with a beautiful gloss coat over my white finish. The interior could stand to be dark for desert riding, and the microphone port larger to accommodate sena sized mics and booms. Overall, this helmet delivers adequate value for the price. It ain't cheap, and wind noise is still present in nearly upright positions (such as a ducati hypermotard) but on forward leaning bikes it's quieter. The front face has a pretty aero bend to the chin, which makes auto emblem tape a necessity for mounting bluetooth. Are there better helmets at this price range? Possibly,but compared to a shoei air journey, this is a bargain for a lot of the same functionality. May 21, 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.

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

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

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
Reply to Jesse Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
