AGV Horizon Racer Helmet

The design of the AGV Horizon Helmet 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 Racer helmet 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 Racer Helmet 4.1 5 26 26
Awful quality… twice. (Internal shade was nice though) I am going to talk about the miserable failures of this helmet, but first, some mundane stuff: First let me just say that this helmet whistles like a tea kettle when you go over 50 miles an hour. It was really annoying until I got used to it. I think it was the vents at the top, and I couldn’t seem to make them stop. I also REALLY liked the flip-down internal shade. Very useful and easy. I can't compare to other helmets with this feature, but i vastly prefer it to a permanently shaded outer visor for the simple reason of “it’s dark when I ride home.” The aerodynamics were fairly decent besides the aforementioned whistle; turning my head while riding fast was mostly a non-event, unlike in some other helmets, especially those with external visors or whatever. Okay… so the flap that holds the snap for the chin snap broke after 2–3 months of use. And I didn’t do anything stupid in it. It shouldn’t have happened. The helmet was replaced essentially under warranty by the Dainese D-Store where I purchased the helmet (for $100 more than it is on RevZilla – oops). But the replacement helmet had problems. The padding at the rear base of the helmet (basically what your head squeezes past when you put on the helmet) kept falling out. I couldn’t get it to stay in. The store agreed with me this is a defect and this time they required me to give up the helmet for examination without a replacement — eventually issuing me a refund in store credit (groan) instead of replacing the helmet. Other problems included: The rear spoiler broke extremely easily and fell off; foam pads and things from inside the helmet would fall out sometimes; and this helmet “scuffs” and collects paint from e.g. apartment walls much more easily than any other helmet I have used. I am sure there were other issues I can’t recall at the moment, as well — I was continually surprised with just how much this helmet kept falling apart. December 9, 2014
Destroyed my faith in AGV I had heard and read great things about AGV, and this helmet was initially very good until it gradually fell apart piece by piece. Just for the record - I treat my helmets with care, I have not exposed this lid to anything other than normal usage. Here's a list of the issues: 1. The rubber seal around the visor split very quickly and with repeated use was severed first in one place, and soon afterwards in various places along the rim, ruining the seal. 2. The screw on one side of the visor mechanism always comes loose, altering the position and action of the visor. 3. The chin curtain broke, the thread came loose and the material flaked off, the way fake leather does after a while. The main issue being the gaping hole that now lets plenty of cold wind inside the helmet. 4. The rear spoiler is made from cheap and weak plastic, which cracked after a slight knock. It then came out completely because of the weak glue holding it in place. 5. The strap that you click the chinstrap button into came out, so the end of the strap flaps around and hits the helmet or my neck at high speeds. 6. The visor never truly seals, there is always an open spot (made worse by the broken seal now) that lets in wind and increases noise. 7. The helmet is noisy overall, and worse with time. 8. After removing the chin curtain several times, the entire bottom plastic portion of the helmet (the 'cover' for the underside) has come loose, and has exposed the protective materials underneath. I paid a lot more than the list price for this helmet when it was first released, I have been absolutely appalled by its gradual decay. I bought my girlfriend a much cheaper helmet from a different manufacturer, that nevertheless has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a premium helmet. It has everything the Horizon offers and more (pinlock visor) and has much better build quality. The difference being manufacturing location - I have read that AGV have changed their manufacturing location and standards have slipped with the transition. If the helmets fall apart so easily, how can you be sure it will save you in a crash? I will never buy an AGV helmet again due to the utterly shoddy build quality, that I would not accept from any helmet, let alone a supposed best-in-class. December 7, 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
good value I've had this for about a month now and this is my first $300+ helmet. I feel the Horizon is quieter compared to my previous helmet which was an open face. It is a little heavier than my open face but light enough to do frequent head checks. The cheek pads seem very tight but then again this is a motorcycle helmet and you cannot afford to have it loose. I think it will loosen up over time. I wear glasses and this is not very eye-glass friendly. I am hoping this will also sort itself over time or I might have to make a small cut into the padding to allow for it. It is very stylish and I have got compliments about it. The internal sun visor is good because now I don't have to carry my sunglasses around when I am riding. Overall I am happy with this but I think I might try the Shoei GT out as well. August 8, 2014
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
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

Roberto L: Best bang for the buck as well as it has a racer appeal with some aspects of touring such as an internal sun shade. I hate having to bring extra stuff with me on a ride that will probably get lost there Feb 2, 2014
A shopper asked: With only two shell sizes, where does the LARGE size land? The smaller of the two or the larger? Thanks. Oct 11, 2013

Alan H: It is the larger of the shells. I completely understand why you would as as I have seen many full face helmets that are bobble head big and are like pushing a billboard through the air. This helmet is well made and does not have all the extra material often associated with cheap helmet builds. It is well balanced and light to wear. It is not as small a shell as the Schuberth, but comparable to the mid range helmet offerings of other strong brands. Nov 23, 2013

Roger B: Sorry about that first answer, it was just a knee/jerk reaction. The most important dimension is the internal measurement where the helmet fits to the head and their sizing chart works spot on. I asume my shell is the larger of the two since it large is the 4th of 6 internal sizes. Oct 12, 2013

A shopper asked: Hello,

I'm interested at this helmet. I'm using XXL for "AGV K4 EVO Arrow Helmet". Do you think i should get XXL for "AGV Horizon Racer Helmet" as well or XL size? Thanks

Jean-Paul O: When I bought the Horizon, I first tried the K4 EVO. The fit of the helmets are different. If the fit of the K4 EVO is just right, then I don't think the Horizon will fit. I found no room in the front with the K4 EVO helmet. My chin was compressed against the chin bar. The overall fit was a bit too round for my liking. I was disappointed, since the K4 EVO was the reason for going to the shop in the first place, but the salesperson suggested trying other models. The Horizon fits my head perfectly. And after using it for 2000 plus miles and surviving a high speed crash, I'm devoted to the model.

I've been a intermediate oval to neutral for most of my helmets. Previous helmets were the Shoei RF-1100 and the Arai Astral X and Vector models.

Hope this helps.

Mike W: Hi,

I can advise that I usually take a L in most helmets and have found the Horizon Racer to match that. The L fits just right as expected.

Please however check with the supplier regarding the sun visor. In my case the sun visor distorts the view from new when lowered. It is practically unusable at anything but crawl speed. I have not yet investigated aftermarket visors but intend to do so.

Regards,

Mike

James W: I bought the Horizon in a large based off the sizing chart. It was true to what the chart indicated. It is a snug fit for the first week or so, but the pads will start to form to your face and be more comfortable over time. I recommend you measure your head and buy based off that.

Additionally, I am very happy with the helmet, it has great airflow, is relatively quite, and looks great.

Branden I: The sizes seem to run true; for example I had a medium Scorpion and got the medium AGV and it fit perfect. Slightly tight at first, but just needed to be broken in; fits like a champ now. Aug 3, 2014

Michael M: I can't compare sizing between the Horizon and other AGV helmets but I would highly recommend trying to find one locally to try on first. I bought the Large based on measurements and my usual sizing in other helmets and it's just a little too big. This creates pressure points on the top of my head since it settles down, and really irritates me. I've been able to snug it up around the sides with some padding between the shell and liner and it works, but I wish I'd gone a size down. That was my mistake and not a helmet issue. I didn't discover it soon enough to exchange it either.

That said, I love everything else about the helmet! Looks great, flows air pretty well, easy shield swaps, and is well made.

Francis G: from what I heard, the k4 fits somehow like the k3. I tried the K3 and it somehow compresses my temples... couldn't wear it for long periods of time. In the case of the horizon, this one fits better on me. I think the head profile that would fit this one is more on the round i think. also, if you are asking on the size, i fit the large k3 and i got a large horizon as well. Aug 7, 2014
