AGV K3 5-Continents Helmet
Great style, fit, protection, and field of view. Can't beat it for the price
I just received this helmet yesterday, and I'm happy to report I absolutely love it! AGV did a fantastic job packing a ton of great styling points and features into a helmet that is cost effective, and Revzilla did a wonderful job getting my order processed and shipped. I live halfway across the country from their warehouse and It only took 3 days from when I placed the order to when it arrived on my doorstep. Overall I am 100% satisfied with this helmet, but I would like to point out some purchasing points to prospective buyers:
As other reviewers have stated, this helmet is an aggressive fit helmet, and as such the padding (especially on the cheeks) is going to feel much more snug that many other helmets. It is still very comfortable and I have had no problems with discomfort, and personally I don't like helmets that feel loose on my head (word of advice though - keep your mouth closed when you ride - otherwise you may unintentionally bite the inside of your cheeks due to the pressure from the pads). Also, the ventilation system on this helmet is decent at the mouth, but not so great on the head vents. Air does flow through them, but the helmet padding hampers the delivery of that air. If you live in a hot climate with a lot of stop and go traffic - be prepared to sweat... The field of view is excellent and allows you to utilize your peripheral range of vision almost fully. Do yourself a favor and order one of the optional tinted shields though, otherwise you eyes will be hurting on a sunny day. You could try wearing sunglasses, however I'd imagine that wouldn't be comfortable in a helmet with such a secure fit. As I said, the helmet was exactly what I was looking for and didn't disappoint in any way. I would happily buy this helmet again in a heartbeat!

Love the looks and is so light.
The Airflow is a little lacking but this is a big improvement over my Icon helmet.

Great looking Helmet thats almost perfect
So this is my first non cheap helmet, so I'm not coming from luxury lines like shoei or arai. First impressions just looking from the outside is this helmet is gorgeous. Like everyone else said the pictures don't do it justice. I always get complimented on how nice it looks. Build quality looks and feels pretty good. The interior of the helmet is plush, nice and soft. It does a pretty good job at venting air, and I haven't had it fog up on me yet. Now the one thing I don't like. The helmet fits me perfectly in all places, except the ears. I've had it for about a 2 weeks and it always seems to pinch my ears after a while. I took a 2 hour ride and by the time I was done my ears were sore to touch. Another thing is the noise. If you get this helmet be prepared for wind noise. At city speeds it isn't bad, but highway speeds it loud. Invest in some ear plugs. Other than that a amazing helmet. I'll be ordering the iridium shield to go with it soon.

Beautiful design, tons of complements
My last helmet was a scorpion EXO400; got the job done but I didn't realize how heavy it actually was until I picked this up. The shape really keeps the wind from getting under the helmet and trying to lift it at speed. I'm on a necked bike so I have no wind screen and my previous helmet felt like it had parachutes on the back compared to this.
My EXO looked good but in the two weeks I've had this I've had more people complement me than ever before; the graphics are just so unique.
My one strife is that there is no ear pockets in the helmet so I have to adjust my ears every time I put it on; no space for any kind of audio system either but I borderline expected this for an entry level helmet. Weight savings, aerodynamics & graphics make this helmet well worth the cash in my book.

First of all wonna thank revzilla for quick shipping. This is my 3rd helmet and by far the best, i had hjc fg 17 and an hjc cl 17. Agv k3 is the lighest of the 3, styling of the helmet is a head turner, rossi all the way. Snug fit, less noise compared to my other helmets. Only con on this helmet is it doesnt have a dedicated space for your ears which makes it uncomfortable until you fix the position of your ears which can be a daunting task at times, im also having trouble wearing earplugs because of this but other than that a definitely a great product.

This was my first helmet and I was stuck between Hi-Viz helmets until I saw this one.. the finish and colors are AMAZING and it feels like a high quality helmet compared to others that I've worn.. only problem I have with it is the cheek pads feel a bit big for my face and squeezed my cheeks to where I couldn't bite down without biting my cheeks... I have read that it is a one-size shell and you can order different size cheek pads which will be on my next purchase, don't let this change your mind! Amazing helmet none the less.

Awesome looking, very bright colors
Really nice helmet, very bright colors. My old helmet was a cheaper bell and the difference is amazing very little noise, comfortable bought a tinted shield looks great
Only thing I dislike is the chin curten does not stay in, but just as happy with out it.
It's a very bright hi viz helmet, so would be great for kawi riders when broke down on the side of the road, people will see you.
Very happy with my purchase, was a little worried about ordering from us to Canada, duty was about 50$, I'd suggest going to a local dealer to try one on before ordering just to be certain, does fit a little different than normal but I find it a great fit...

The helmet over all is great. Pictures does not do any justice. It fits great! Great airflow! Looks superb! Visor fogs up easy though
