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
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
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
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
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
DOPE!! Ok, So I just got my AGV Skyline helmet in matte black. All I can say is DOPE! Helmet looks real sexy and fits great. Changing the outer and inner visors is really simple as well. Over all, SEXY helmet! Oh ya, Im in Canada and this came in 3 days. Super quick! Great job!! I cant wait to use this when the season starts. Will be able to comment on Protection & Durability, as well as Air Flow. February 28, 2014
Good value My wife and I both chose this helmet after trying quite a few different models. I'm used to offroad/motocross helmets, with this being my first street helmet. I had to go with a slightly larger size than I have in other brands, not that it made any difference in my opinion of it. Even with having to go with a slightly larger size than I'm used to, the padding fit snugly exactly how and where I needed it to. It's very comfortable and the light weight makes it easy on the neck when on longer trips. We both love the drop down shaded visor for riding during the day, though we both are planning to switch to a slightly darker tint. The quick release outer visor makes cleaning or replacing a breeze. The ventilation is good, though on a hot day a little more wouldn't hurt. However it does come with interchangeable locks for the visor opening positions, one of which is a micro-open that aids in airflow. The closeable upper and lower vents are nice when you choose to ride in the cold. The helmet also includes a deflector that snaps in place around the lower part of the face shield, which helps to control airflow through the helmet. This piece definitely helps when riding in colder conditions. My only gripe is that the Matte Black finish tends to show and scratches or scuffs more than I'm used to with other helmets. Otherwise, I have and would continue to recommend this helmet to anyone who is the market for a new one, and wanted a good bang for their buck. January 17, 2014
Excellent design, very good value, excellent Revzilla customer service. I've been using AGV K-3 helmets for a long time. The reason for the Skyline upgrade was two fold: - I wanted a helmet with a sun visor so I could leave my sunglasses at home. - I wanted a helmet that would accommodate a communication system for my weekend rides with my son. The first issue was a no brainer. The sun visor on the Skyline works beautifully, very easy to operate with gloves on, and is distortion free. The second issue was not that easy, though through no fault of the Skyline. The speakers of my Cardo G9 system fit very nicely in their respective recesses in the padding, however the unit itself is hard to attach to the helmet as the ridge at the bottom prevents the unit from being clamped on properly. I later found out that the helmet comes with its own proprietary communication system, an all integrated one piece job that pops into place. Unfortunately due to the fact that it has a range of 10 meters only compared to one mile with the G9, I decided to find another helmet that works with the G9 for our weekend rides. This issue has obviously nothing to do with the Skyline which is an excellent helmet and I'm keeping it to use it as my weekday helmet. June 24, 2013

A shopper asked: Do the M and L size AGV Skyline helmets share the same shell size? I got a L size helmet from my friend who bought it new few months ago and barely used it. I'd like to know if I can replace the L size liner with M size liner and use it. Thanks. May 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

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?

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.
