AGV Skyline Helmet - Solids 4.4 5 59 59
Great style! Really love it! Great style (matte black) and features. The only problem (not a huge one) it that it is a little too big for me. But it doesn't bugs me in a daily base, only at long trips. September 20, 2015
Would buy again Helmet is very comfortable. Cheek pads are a little tight. Used on a cruiser for a long ride good air flow and quiet. Having the built in sunglasses is a very nice feature. Would only buy an AGV helmet after using this one. September 7, 2015
Great value and looks Well worth the price, helmet is quite loud going 70+mph on the highway though. Other features like view and comfort trump the noise level though. Good buy. September 7, 2015
Bad build quality I was very excited to get an AGV helmet for this price especially because it is a step up in the material compared to those plastic helmets that are in the same price range. However, the paint chipped on it after two weeks. I have no clue how it happened I treat it like my baby. But I am most disappointed about how the cheek pads are keep coming untucked. Every single time I take it off and put it on I have to keep tucking them back in. It is freaking annoying! Also I start seeing some other looseness inside of the helmet. I wish I would have spent a little more on a better quality helmet. Installing my Sena SMH 10 was a b i t c h. My $200 Icon Airmada feels like it would be at least twice as expensive helmet. September 5, 2015
Great helmet. I've been happy with this helmet. The view is wide and no obstructions. The helmet weight is good it's not too heavy on my head. This is the first helmet I've owned that didn't have the rear vents. I've had other AGV, Bells, Arai and this helmet breathes every bit as well as the previous. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.

Great helmet Very good looking helmet with lots of features usually found on more expensive lids. August 24, 2015
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. July 7, 2015
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. August 17, 2015

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.
