AGV Skyline Block Italy Helmet
This is my second Skyline helmet. Great helmet, easy to install com system in it. Comfortable. I have owned the matte finish and a gloss finish version of this helmet and recommend the matte finish.

Good budget helmet
Overall, this is a nice helmet if you do not want to spring for a 500+ lid. Quality is quite high for a Chinese helmet, fit and finish seem above the norm. My only problem with the helmet is the sun visor system. It is more of an afterthought than a well implemented new feature. It is very difficult if not impossible to remove.

The helmet has nice styling and is worth every penny.
I have had the helmet for 4 months, and I commute daily on my FZ6. The helmet is comfortable to ware and feel secure on. It fits me perfect and has good vision.it is a bit loud but I expected that from previous reviews. I love the quick release. I did not pay too much for the helmet and get a lot out of it. So overall worth the money I spent on it.

Very good helmet suited more for an upright to 3/4 riding position.
NOISE: It's pretty quiet until you get up to 50+ mph after that you get wind noise and a whistle here and their.
SHAPE: The helmet shell(the exterior) is on the BIG side even with a size medium which I didn't expect but the aggressive look and detail of the helmet make up for it.
VENTILATION: The ventilation is amazing through the chin vent which is the only vent I leave open because it flows that much air.
VIEW: Both the visors are very nice the exterior one barely fogs so at stops I usually leave it down, and the internal sun visor is spot on it doesn't distort and it goes down enough.
FEEL: It feels best when in an upright or a 3/4 position so if you ride a super sport I would recommend you get another helmet.
OVERALL: If your looking for convenient features, aggressive looks, and protection you won't be disappointed.

AGV skyline helmet review
This helmet is tough to get on and off but once i get it on it fits perfect. Getting it on and off has seemed to loosen up some after just one ride with it. Overall it fits great and love the helmet. Looks awesome as well. I got the color blue. It is a little loud but that doesnt bother me.

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.

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.
