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. May 25, 2015
Great buy 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! May 13, 2015
Great value! 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. May 12, 2015
Solid Helmet This is just a great all-around helmet. It seems designed for naked bike use - I ride a fast naked bike and really enjoy this helmet. It's lightweight, and it's aerodynamic design and chin curtain have virtually eliminated head buffeting - at really any speed. Air flow is good - not great - but good. With your head tilted down you get limited airflow through the front vents - you have to lift your head up or tilt to either side to get optimal air flow. It's very lightweight, very easy to wear for a long time. Headchecks are easy and don't grab your head. It's very comfortable for long use, it easily accommodates my glasses (which are wide and square), the visor is good quality, and there's very little distortion looking through my glasses, the internal visor, and the external visor at the same time. I do have 4 minor nit-picks: 1. The visor does not have a "vent/crack" setting - on other helmets the visor has had a setting to crack it open about 1/4" inch to get a little airflow but still offer protection. This visor is either very open or fully closed. 2. With the chin-curtain installed and the helmet on, you can't open/close the front vent. 3. The top vents whistle a bit at speed. 4. Although this helmet is very bluetooth friendly (pockets for speakers), with my Scala installed I got hot spots on my ears after a few hours of riding. (This may be related to my bluetooth kit or installation instead of the helmet - no hot spots experienced prior to bluetooth installation) I hope I don't have to test the crash safety of the helmet, but it feels solid and well-made. I'm confident that it will do a good job of protecting my head and keeping my face pretty - within reason. Solid 8.5/10 for this helmet. At this price point, buy it. May 11, 2015
Great Helmet, but... The helmet is great all around, it's comfortable and fits great. The slender style helmet helps when riding on the freeway. First concern is that the visor doesn't seal completely at 60mph + allowing for a whistling sound. d May 11, 2015
Nice updated helmet. This was my first helmet purchase in a few years. Apparently very few manufacturers are making long-oval shaped helmets at present; this is one of the few. After hassling with two different visors on my old helmet for my daily commute for the past several years, I wanted to try a helmet with a flip-down shade, and I'm glad I did. It takes a little getting used to, and the inner shade has to be firmly latched in or it can hang up in the open position, but despite those two caveats it's great. No hassle with keeping two shields and it's SO nice to be able to drop the inner shield down half-way through my commute. This thing is just the ticket. I'm very happy with my purchase. May 8, 2015
I love it I'm glad to get the AGV Skyline helmet. I'ts the helmet that I always want. Style, comfort, and extremely wide vision. Also, having to place my blue tooth in it was easy and fast. May 4, 2015
Glad I purchased it I was surprised by the reduction in wind resistance this helmet offered versus my old HJC Racer helmet. It is also substantially quitter. May 4, 2015

Curtis B: I recently purchased the Skyline. Tag inside says "Made in China". I also have the AGV AX-8 Dual EVO helmet. Also has a tag saying "Made in China".

Neither are their Top-Of-the-Line helmets, but the AX-8 is one of their better ones.

John H: The M size helmet seems to have a bigger shell, that could possibly be the same as the L size. But impossible to tell without having them side-by-side. Seems like a question the Revzilla folks could answer, or possibly AGV directly. Jun 9, 2014

A shopper asked: Does the integrated visor provide as much sun and glare protection as a full tinted shield?

Sigtor K: Q: Does the integrated visor provide as much sun and glare protection as a full tinted shield?
A: Yes, but it obviously doesn't cover 100% of your filed of view like the full one would

Q: Is there any compromise in optical clarity when viewing though both the integrated visor and the clear full visor?
A: No

Q: Is the integrated visor a viable replacement for carrying a spare full tinted shield?
A: Absolutely, only downside is cool factor. You could always reverse it, using clear integrated visor when it gets too dark and full tinted shield as a main.

At a glance, the Skyline is the little brother of the Horizon. They're both fitting within the $300 to $400 range. The nice part from AGV with this new line of helmets is you're getting a lot of the benefits that are really stolen from the Grid and the GP Tech at that race level, but you're not investing in some of the hardcore exotic features and fit materials that create that weight that's really track, you know, long distance hardcore track worthy. So what you're getting is a lot of those stolen features that are going to be big upgrades over something like the K3 and the K4 EVO in a package that's aggressive, well-ventilated, and that's definitely premium.

So the first thing we see here on the Skyline, same as the Horizon, is that we're using a carbon glass shell. So it's going to be a step up from polycarb, it's carbon and fiberglass, but it's not quite that Kevlar tri-composite fiberglass material that we're seeing again on those higher-end helmets. You also have a first here from AGV with an internal dropdown sun visor, here in the Skyline as well as the Horizon. And again, I keep mentioning it because it's really the sister helmet, and the Horizon's going to be a bit more aggressive. It's going to have a spoiler and some different venting. But we have that optically-correct class one, no scratch, no fog, replaceable visor built into the inside.

Now, from a weight saving standpoint, using the carbon glass, we're right around 3 pounds 9 ounces for a medium, but you do have that internal mechanism. So again, it's always tradeoffs with helmets. Lightweight or functionality, you start adding more things on, and that's when you're going to start to see some of those numbers go up.

Now, if we look at it, we're using a new shield change mechanism from AGV, it's called the XQRS, the Extra Quick shield change system, and it's really simple. It's really just a button on both sides, and it comes right off that quickly, that easily, and then to pop it back on, you just kind of line it up and snap it in. A few years ago, nobody had a quick change release system like this, and if somebody did, it would have been a huge feature for those of you that ride to work in the daytime and might need to commute home at night to be able to change shields that easily. These days so many folks have quick change shield mechanisms. It's really an ante for any premium helmet, and AGV's done a good job at redeveloping the system so it works really well.

One other thing to note on the design of this helmet is this definitely steals DNA from the Pista GP that Rossi's wearing in Moto GP. This helmet has an improved range of protection here in the chin bar. It has this sweeping hawk's bill look to it. Very aggressive. And you could see there's these dragonfly wing vents on the front, and to operate them, it's actually really cool. It's underneath, it's the open and close is right there. So there's my open and close for my venting to the front. Now, if we also look in here, you're going to see this little round L that's in the middle. That's removable, and there's a little pocket on either side. If you decide to install a communicator system here on the Skyline, you can run your boom right in that little cut out, that channel groove, and it'll sit right in the middle, it'll sit slightly recessed, which we really like.

Moving up past those vents, let's talk about the chimney vents. Again, the feel of this helmet is going to be much more in line with something that we see at the higher end. This is the IVR system, the integrated ventilation system that we see from AGV. It's where the air comes in, there's big channels that then lead it into the EPS and into your head. Open and close easily found with gloves on. And the color blocking here, I have the block graphic actually, but there's solids and there's graphics. Now, notice the difference here between this and the Horizon is that there's no rear wing and you don't have those external exhaust vents in the back. So to save about 50 or 60 bucks, that's actually what you're tradeoff is going to be. But you still have a DOT and ECE-rated helmet with a lot of premium feature to it.

So let's pull this bad boy on its side and bust it open. Let's talk about fit really quickly. So we're looking at it right now, and remember, if you're not sure about fit and you do get the wrong size, we ship for free, exchange for free, no restock fees, just send it back in new condition to us. We try to make it easy. But the fit here on the AGV Skyline is going to be different than Horizon even though they have a similar look and a similar shape to them. Intermediate to slightly more narrow here on the Skyline. Keep that in mind. Where the Horizon was neutral to round. That's a big difference and, you know, most people have an idea of what their helmet shape. If you're not sure, watch any of our helmet sizing videos or even some of the graphics that we have produced. To give you an idea, it's that bird's eye view of your head from the top down. Is it a circle, is it earth-shaped, or is it long front to back like mine? It gives you an idea. This would fit me, whereas the Horizon would not.

Now, looking at the bottom, another upgrade that we don't see in a lot of places in the AGV line, quick-release strap, which means it's very easy to use with a glove on. Just quick one-handed release, which some people love. It's a nice option. And as we get into the guts, we're using completely redesigned guts here now in this AGV line. Different size of cheek pads available, a few different helmet shell sizes here, and I'm going to pull my neck roll and my cheek pad out, and notice it's Dri-Lex wicking, antimicrobial, very comfortable. It's micro microfiber, and it feels great against your skin. It's nice and full, has a good contour. And notice that we have a full neck roll that also has some reflectivity built into. So three snaps on the other side, one, two, and I'm going to pull it out first and then pop it from the back, three. Here's my right side.

And then one of the other things here, I'm going to pull this piece out, this helmet's very communicator friendly. There are actually cutouts that have this dense foam material that comes stock, and if you want to put in your own speaker system, you can. If you want to have something that Velcros to it, this has a Velcroable material on the top of it. But again, being able to pull that out means you can recess that speaker, so even if you have a thicker speaker from one of the manufacturers of aftermarket Bluetooth communicators, it's not going to get in the way.

Now, moving on to our comfort liner, which I'm actually a big fan of. Again, nice new upgrade here on the Skyline. Snaps in the front, pull it around. Again, comfort liner that we've seen, same comfort liner as the Horizon. You'll notice it's really beefy, lots of 3D foam, but the nice part is that if we look from the outside, you have mesh areas, you have areas where the IVR system is going to pull the air in through those big vent holes in the EPS, which I'm going to show you now, and get them to your scalp for circulation. And then if we look at the guts of this helmet, definitely a lot going on here. You can see those big 10 millimeter holes that vent to the channel, foam on top to create a little bit of extra space and comfort, and then we even have some exhaust ports in the EPS that actually don't exhaust the helmet, but they're built in there just so the air can freely circulate throughout the helmet.
