Great Helmet for its value, but too loud.
I used to have an AGV K3. when i got this one i thought it was gonna be superior to the K3 in evere single possible way, but i was wrong. The T2´s quality is superior to the K3, no question about it, its weight, its materials, inner padding, it fits better, the way it looks its great, its just better, BUT as soon as u hit over 60 MPG, you'd better be wearing some noise cancelling earbuds, cause it gets very loud!, no matter whether air intakes are open or not. its anoying when dust manage to get into the helmet, i admitt, it doesnt happen very often, but i wear contact lenses,so u can imagine...
Air flow its amazing, but i'd like to have something that really cancels the airflow into my helment when i want to do so.

One of the best
I have ridden with AGV's for some time and have never had a bad experience with one of their products. The T-2 is no exception. The T-2 is modeled after AGV's GP Helmet line, the GP-Tech. This helmet take a lot of the features that AGV uses on the GP circuit and makes them more affordable to the average joe.
Lets start by talking about air flow. Air flow in this helmet is phenomenal. To me, it rivals the Bell Star. It's not quite the wind tunnel that the Star is, but it does extremely well. I notice air movement starting at about 15 MPH with both bents open. The removable chin curtain provides air redirection when needed, keeping unwanted air from coming in under the helmet and around the neck. The included removable anti-fog nose guard is also a plus. This piece completely eliminates visor fogging in lower temperatures.
Moving on to fit. This helmet, at first, fit tight. Not tight as in my head was going to pop, but tight as in my head was a bit squished. After about 500 miles of riding, the helmet loosened up a bit and the fit is perfect. A side not. The padding in the helmet is a little bit different than most others. The padding is almost like a mesh fabric instead of a solid foam. I noticed that my cheeks are much more comfortable, and cooler against this material than on the solid foam in other lids.Most importantly, in regards to fit, this helmet is light, light, light! Mine, a large, weighs in at 3.2 lbs. I have a hard time wearing, or even trying for that matter, anyone elses helmet because I'm spoiled by this feather weight.
Finally, finish and action. The finish on this helmet is marvelous. Mine is the solid black. I've gotten numerous comments on how good the lid looks. For a black lid, she definitely looks good. The action on the lid is a bit of a pain. The pull tab is a bit hard to pull down, but once you get used to it, it's easy.
Overall this helmet is fantastic. My only complaint about it was the action being a bit tough at first, but hey, that is hardly a complaint. If you are looking for a good looking, light weight and safe helmet, look no further. The T-2 is it.
PS - I forgot to mention, I was hit by a truck while wearing mine. This helmet saved my skull. Any helmet that does that for me deserves my +1.

Fits true size, I measured my head as per sizing sheet and turned out to be spot on.
Excellent air flow, too good, actually. Can it be too good? I bought it for spring/cold riding condition too, yet had to switch back to my old helmet. T-2 provides such a great air flow that even with closed vents it freezes my forehead in the cold weather. I recon it will be great during summer time.
Another thing is that it does not include anti-fog screen unlike my old Nolan, so it's kind of a headache during cold weather.
Point is this helmet makes a great value for warmer climate, but in April time of year in NY I have to look for other options.
Otherwise, this is excellent quality helmet, cleaning is very easy on it, detaching windshield takes seconds.
Interior and padding are very comfortable, easy on, easy off, develops no pressure points one the scalp on a long ride.
Performed very well in rainy conditions, got me home dry and well, found no inside leaks after that.
