AGV Skyline Block Italy Helmet (Size 2XL Only)
Great helmet for the price
I purchased my original Skyline helmet last year. I wore that helmet for 7,000 miles, before a shelf in my garage collapsed and the helmet fell onto the concrete floor. Since I was unsure whether it sustained any damage, I chose to replace it and was happy to see that it was now on sale.
Overall, the helmet has been great. Super comfortable, great visibility, the internal sun visor works well (though I wish it was darker and came further down), and I love the quick-release buckle. Been very happy with the quality and durability, and the paint finish is flawless.
One thing I might note is that my original Skyline was a Medium, which I ordered based on the sizing chart --it fit perfectly when new but became a little loose over time. For my new one, I ordered a Small, which is a little uncomfortably tight to start, but I'm hoping will fit better once it's broken in. So, I guess I'd recommend ordering a size smaller if you're unsure of what size to get.

I ordered the Black block color scheme in a Medium. This is my go to summer helmet & I just did a 5k mile tour in it. It held up great and is very comfortable. It looks even better in person than it does in pics. My only complaints are that the left neck roll won't stay in properly so it slides down a tiny bit when I take the helmet off & I occasionally have to force it back in to place. Never worried about it coming out while riding & this only bothers me because I'm particular. There is so much room around the ears that when I ride with headphones in there is nothing to hold them in so eventually the movements of riding cause them to fall out. Also the inner sun visor is fragile. I was scrubbing a dead bug off of it and pushed too hard breaking a tab that holds it in & since the replacements aren't cheap this was frustrating. There are higher quality helmets out there but the looks, and low price plus the ratchet chin strap, (I hate D rings) made it a good buy & I'd recommend it.

Great Closeout Deal
Great buy on closeout. Features are everything I was looking for. The internal visor is awesome, darker than my old smoke visor for my Scorpion helmet.
Only complaint is the cling stickers left a film on both visors that made me think I was having a stroke when I put it on.

Love the style, but made pretty cheap
So it was love at first sight when I saw this helmet! It just so happened to be the last one so I thought it was fate.... later when the helmet arrived I was both super excited and yet a little disapointed.
I love the style, and it fits great. Yet as soon as I pulled it out of the bag I noticed that the padding kept coming out. After reading the instructions and trying with all of my might to get the padding to stay INSIDE the helmet; it only seemed to stay in until I took the helmet off again. Then I was back at square one! No matter what I do, it just doesnt want to stay inside.
So far everything has stayed in place while I'm driving so I guess thats a plus...
I just expected a little more from a product that I spent over $200 for.
Other then the padding not doing its actual job, the helmet is really good. Not a whole lot of noise until around 60+ mph, even then its pretty decent. The release buckle is the best one ive ever had. So easy to put on or take off, even with gloves on.
The colors are amazing, I love sporting my Italian side. Plus I think it just looks plain bad a**! The front comes to a point and gives it a crazy wicked look.
I would definetly recommend a different visor. I got the mirrored one, and man do I get a ton of looks! Couldnt be happier about the visor. Super easy to take out and reinstall.
Update*** I've had this helmet for a couple weeks now. The wind noise is still so-so, but the darn pads! Seriously they won't stay in! I couldn't be more disappointed with how much this thing set me back. They say you get what you pay for... Obviously they were wrong!
I've tekem this thing apart numerous times and still can't get it back together. Oh and the 2nd time I took this out... The helmet chipped! I'm a relatively new rider so I'm not out doing 100mph or anything crazy like that. Just commuting to and from work. And it's already chipped!

Sweet style helmet. Once you get used to the way it sits the visor allows for tons of visibility. Only issue is the padding sometimes doesn't stay it its slots, and I end up fixing it before I put it on. Worth it though.

Great helmet for the long oval head
This is my first helmet. I tried shopping locally but none of the stores carried many 2xl sizes that I could try since I wasnt sure how a helmet should feel. Research indicated that not many companies make helmets for long narrow or oval heads. Unbelievable. Ordering this was a gamble. Going by the written and video reviews on the site, as well as researching brands I decided on this helmet. I liked the features and the look. My head measurements fit the chart and the helmet fits. A bit tight at first but at least it was uniform. I've had it for a couple of weeks and the tightness is subsiding as the helmet is breaking in. I would definitely recommend for those with my headshape. Great helmet, great price.

This is the best I ever bought so far, love avg, and this one is great in shape to cut the wind, nice feature about the sun glasses, pretty good insulated for the noise, comfortable, easy to tie in and out.. Love it!

This helmet is a great value. My last helmet had very poor padding, particularly on the forehead. It made riding almost uncomfortably impossible. With this helmet I don't have any of those worries. I have been very pleased with the comfort and noise of the helmet. I've put around 2000 miles on the bike while wearing this helmet and I've yet to put in ear plugs (though on longer trips I should've). My only concern is a lack of vents at the back of the helmet, especially when the temp is over 80, under that the ventilation has been adequate. I'm not certain that the vents at the front will provide enough flow over my scalp. The chin vent, however, provides a tremendous amount of airflow. The helmet is lighter than expected, particularly considering my XL size. If I could buy this helmet again I almost certainly would. If you need more venting check out the K3 SV. My wife has that helmet and the styling is very similar, but with more venting, due to the rear vents. It should be noted that her size small feels like it is the same weight or possibly a bit heavier than my XL, though we haven't weighed them to verify that.
