AGV Skyline Block Italy Helmet 4.1 5 17 17
Looks Good Functions less than ideal Wanted a quality helmet (obviously) that looked good. I thought I did enough research but apparently not. While the helmet does look fantastic its riding quality is less than desirable. First issue I've had are the cheek pads, I wanted some that are removable so I could wash them, and understand they can't be permanently attached, but I shouldn't have to put the pads back in every time I take off the helmet. Next, I suspect the reason for the pad issue is a result what appears to be the inner EPS liner delaminating for the shell allowing the cheek pad to unclip from retainer. Whether this is common or not I don't know but it says a lot for the quality of this helmet, and company. Ventilation from the mouth piece is pretty decent, with your head just right it is quite refreshing, however, it does not provide any anti-fogging function what-so-ever, and the visor retention system is complete garbage, no matter what retention clip used there is no setting to "defog" the visor while at highway speed. Additionally riding with the visor "cracked" (1st setting is 1.5 in wide) the wind coming in is unbearable even with the internal visor down (this visor actually works pretty well). Sound level, where to start.... I've only had two helmets and this is bar far louder than my cheap HJC, I can't believe anyone would sell a helmet the actually whistles above 55mph, seriously people is QA dead? Comfort wise the helmet is decent after break-in, it arrived very snug but I figured that's fine it'd break in to be a well fitting helmet, and it has, however what has not changed and is the worst part of the helmet is the retention system. Its called a "Double D-ring" in the write up but it is actually an at best annoying at worst larynx crushing ratchet clip you'd find on a pair of roller blades, yes great for on and off with gloves, terrible while riding.

Nice helmet Bought while on sale and feel it was a great value for the price paid. I like the changeable detent clips for the faceshield however the "urban" pieces do not hold the shield tightly when fully closed causing a fairly loud whistle. Changed them out for one of the other sets that come with the helmet and problem solved. Other than that, no complaints. Sun visor keeps me from having to cram sunglasses in and the ratchet chin strap is great. December 2, 2014
Great Helmet! This is a great Helmet, really worth the bucks I've spent. Light, really nice looking, fells very good. It is a bit narrow for my head, I guess, the AGV K4 I had gave a little more room, speacilly for the cheeks, but this one is clearly a step up. I love the built in shades. November 24, 2014
Great helmet for the price Overall, I think this is a great helmet, especially taking the price point into account. I rated it as 4 stars, but would have given it 4.5 stars if possible on Revzilla's rating scale. I've ridden about 1300 miles in it so far. Pros: - Love the graphics, especially in the Italy colors. - Fits my oval head shape really well. - Very comfortable padding, though cheek pads do fit tight to start - Internal sun visor is nice feature at this price point -- though it isn't perfect, see below. - Venting works well, and chin vent is easy to use. - Really good field of vision (maybe a little restricted up top when in a tuck), with nice visor detents. - Love the quick release strap. - Construction appears very high quality and seems durable. Cons: - Noise level seems rather high. I haven't tried other helmets in this price range, so I'm not sure how it compares, but it's as noisy as my $120 HJC. - Sun visor does not come down as far as I'd like. Leaves a strip of un-blocked view below the visor, which is not too annoying once you get used to it, but not ideal. - Though I love the graphics, I agree with others that the Italy colors are a tad brighter than I would have preferred. - Also as others have mentioned, the shell appears to be on the bigger size -- but I'll give AGV the benefit of doubt and chalk that up to providing better protection and accommodating the sun visor. So, all in all, I love the helmet and highly recommend it to anyone with a long oval head-shape looking for a sub-$400 option, even if it's not absolutely perfect. June 9, 2014
Quality issues but didn't regret buying it Basically I bought this helmet for its looks and the internal sun visor. Compared to my previous Shoei helmet, it feels a bit cheap and I've had an issue with it since day 1. If I use the lever to put the sun visor up without care, it will get stuck and am not able to lower it unless I take the helmet off and use a credit card or something to un-jam it. In saying that, it's a sexy helmet and I love it. May 20, 2014
I like it but didn't blow me out of the water First off, this is my first helmet beyond the ~$100 mark, so take that into account as I haven't had too much experience with higher end helmets. I honestly bought the AGV Skyline Block Italy helmet because I think it looks awesome and it has the drop down visor. The first thing I noticed about the Block Italy graphic is that the green and red colors are a little brighter than I expected, but it has a much better finish and attention to detail than my old budget helmets and it definitely still looks sharp. The drop down visor is nice, but it could be a tad darker. The interior padding is super comfortable but needed to be broken in just a little to fit perfectly as it was a little too snug on my cheeks at first but are fine now. Some think the helmet is bulky and I can't disagree with them but what do you expect with the internal visor? The ratcheting strap is easy to use, but I find the release tab gets tucked upwards inside the helmet instead of downwards making it difficult to locate with a glove on sometimes. There is also a small D-ring on the base of one of the straps, so with a cable you can still attach it to your bike if needed. Another small gripe is that it is near impossible to operate the chin vent switch with the chin curtain attached. Not sure if you'd ever really find yourself in that situation but it's just something I noticed. I haven't experienced any fogging issues, and the faceshield swap is super easy and the different detents that come included are nice. I use the standard detends and the open and close positions feel super solid, so no popping open when looking sideways. The venting is pretty good and with ear plugs it stands the quietest helmet I've owned (not sure if that's saying much though). Personally, I think the helmet is worth the extra expense but at the same time, I'm again not super experienced with helmets at this price point. Overall, with all the features and styling, I really like the AGV Skyline Block Italy and would recommend it to anyone riding in the 3/4 position. April 23, 2014
comfortable, affordable helmet I wanted a basic, plain lightweight helmet - the Skyline was a good match for my needs. Likes: -lightweight -aggressive design -easy shield swap -price point -modern, quick attach/release adjustable chin strap Minor inconveniences: -As other reviewers have mentioned, the shell is kind of bulky. I wish it was a little more streamlined/low-profile but I'm guessing overall protection would be compromised) -I found myself torn between two sizes. The medium was unbearably tight but the large felt almost too comfortable. I went with the large but wish it was a bit more snug since I know it will give a bit over time. April 14, 2014
Good entry level minimal fogging Starting off I have been wearing this helmet for commuting to work, mornings the helmet fogs up a little at stops when moving it's okay , the helmet also fits the thick framed black eye glasses I wear. I never use contacts and this helmet is accommodating. It's a good helmet , my only complaint is the shape . It looks a little big /egg shaped other than that it's a good helmet with internal sun visor March 9, 2014

Mark Y asked: I have a Scorpion EXO 500 and even in an XL it is headach-tight in crown and I usually ride with my teeth apart due to the cheek pads being so tight. I ordered a EXO 500 in L but I couldn't even get it on. The measuring tape puts me at 59 cm and I wear a 7 3/8 in most hats. (bald men have a lot of hats). I've been using the EXO 500 for a couple of months now and wonder if this AVG will have more room? Sep 23, 2014

John H: The Skyline is an oval shaped helmet, so it may have more room front to back than the Scorpion. I tried on both the Skyline and the AGV Horizon, and the Horizon was a round shape and definitely did not fit me right. Depending on your head shape, you may need to try a number of brands and models to find ones that fit your head. Fit is so important it would be worth the effort, especially since you seem to ride a lot. Sep 23, 2014

B A: I'm a 7 1/2 hat size with an oval head, and have the AVG model you are asking about. I can say that it has reasonable cheek pad space. My only complaint relates to a pressure point on my forehead. Wearing helmets teaches you something about the shape of your head; I daresay most of us haven't got a perfect skull. When I don a helmet, it sits to the left of center. I expect to take a bit of padding out of it to accommodate what must be a high point above my right eye. In fact, removing padding is probably necessary for most riders with most helmets, and might help you with the Scorpion, too. This AVG is a pretty good helmet, I really like the simplicity of the design, but it is slightly more aggressive in format than fits my preferred riding style. I have a Honda Pacific Coast and when I am up in the riding position I like, the internal shaded visor doesn't seem to come down as far as it should. That said, you get used to it, and it flips up and down very easily with a gloved hand. The outer visor could use a "cracked" detente, which it lacks. This is sometimes annoying, as the nose vents are just adequate in warm weather. One great feature is the chin strap that works on a ratchet, so you can easily remove the helmet with your gloves on. It can cut into your wattle a bit, but I just leave it a notch looser. It eliminates the need to put your stuff on in a specific order. The shell is fairly large because of the inner shield, but I can still squeeze it into the trunk of my bike. People with paniers might have trouble putting it inside; I looked at a Honda ST1100 last week and sussed that the helmet might not fit inside its saddle bags. In sum, this isn't a perfect helmet, but has some useful features. I would give it an 8 out of 10. Hope this helps you decide. -Barry Sep 23, 2014

Kaba C: Hi Mark,

I have a very small head and AGV helmets work well for me because they fit
normal or slightly smaller than normal heads for a given size.
Shoei helmets are known to accommodate bigger heads and most of their helmets are too big for me, at any given size.

To your point, I did have a scorpion before. They are great, inexpensive and the fitting was good albeit with some pressure points around my head. That's why I switched to the more expensive but comfortable AGV brand. That's just me.

Whatever you do, don't just take my word for anything. Try it if you can find it and see if you experience discomfort.

Good luck shopping!
