What's this?

AGV AX-8 DS EVO GT Helmet

The AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet has taken one of the most high-end and lightweight dualsport helmets on the market (AX-8 DS) and has made some significant upgrades.  Additional technical features like the visor and visor mechanism, a chin air vent that can be opened, and an open-able supplementary ventilation on the top of the AGV AX-8 EVO guarantee all the performance and comfort of a road model.

The AX-DS EVO features internal padding with increased thickness for improved comfort and greater stability. A new shape for the outer shell in the chin area combined with a wider and softer base edge compared to the previous model, reduces interference with any back protector used and decreases risks of impact traumas, thanks to its "shock-absorber" function.

Features:

  • SSL (Super Super Light) carbon, Kevlar and fiberglass shell construction
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) funnels air though channels in the outer shell
  • Flat dual face shield in non-scratch, antifog polycarbonate
  • Dry-Lex internal padding with sanitized treatment
  • Removable and washable cheek pads and internal lining
  • Outer aluminum peak screws 
  • 3 shell sizes
  • DOT Certified

The helmet is super sexy, but it doesn't deliver when it counts.
The helmet was purchased a little over a year ago.

The good:

It is a super sexy looking helmet, I get stopped by folks all the time asking me questions about the helmet. For light street or fashion use this is a great item.

The bad:

1. The peak constantly vibrates and gives the helmet a constant buzzing feeling.

2. The plastic screws that hold the peak in place are very fragile, I have broken many of them removing the peak and replacing it on my travels.

3. The visor fogs up instantly in the pacific northwest rain and it scratches easily. I have to keep it cracked open constantly, which defeats the purpose of having the visor.

4. The chin cover on the underside of the helmet tore with in the first two months. It is cheaply made.

For a helmet that looks this amazing, I can't recommend it.

Do Not Buy
I chose this helmet, wanting a wide field of view and light weight - and in those departments, it doesn't disappoint. However, the face shield has a very loud, annoying whistling sound. If I turn my head to the left or right, it will stop, but it's a little hard to ride this way. Kinda goes w/o saying.

I sent it in to Revzilla, and they told me that AGV "does not warranty against road noise." Sorry, but whistling is a defect, a basic design flaw with the helmet - not simple road noise.

For this reason - and the overall cheap feel of the helmet, I cannot recommend strongly enough - NOT buying this junky helmet. It's a huge waste of my money.

(+)'s & (-)'s
Revzilla's support, timeliness, and expedited delivery was (and continues to be) spot on! Anthony's review helped me narrow my choice down to this helmet be AGV - great job in providing all the details!

Let me start by saying I like the styling, design, comfort, and light weight of this helmet and I look forward to its utility for adventure riding on my 2015 R1200GS ADV! I deliberated on which "KoolAid" to drink from after wearing a full face helmet for >100,000 miles of tour riding: modular or Dual Sport styles. I really wanted modular and nearly did, but the deal breaker was the visor (which can come off rather easily and stores in my tank bag for road-trips and put back on once you travel off the beaten path). There are definite advantages to modular, but I couldn't pass this helmet up for its value!

Pros
- the quality (paint, lining, retention strap, and ventilation (mostly)) is outstanding
- the fit is perfect (normal shaped noggin') based on AGV's measurement and sizing chart
- very quiet - probably because the ear padding touches and "seals" off the ear from wind noise and the chin piece has a cover that can easily be removed if desired (I decided to keep mine in for winter riding, will likely remove it when the temps warm up)

Cons (these are what prevented me from giving it a 5-star rating)
- no space for speakers for my Scala Rider (bummer) - this has caused me a little delay in determining how to mount the ear speakers without cutting into the padding; I haven't tried to mount the mike yet either!
- the face shield fogs up HORRIBLY even with the chin vent fully open! Went on a ride in the mid 30's to mid 40's on a clear day and I wondered why it was so blurry through my shield.....it had, actually, formed droplets!!! There is no "happy medium" to prevent the fogging except to let the cold air flow into the helmet through a partially opened face shield. I've owned two other full face helmet brands that never had this problem! I haven't checked to see if AGV has fog-free shields for this model yet - I may have to resort to "Rain-X No Fog" to coat on the inside of the shield if there is no coating to damage if applied.
- a minor gripe is the limited positions afforded for opening the face shield - I wish it could be a friction-type or one with smaller notches
- the face shield requires more-than-usual force to open and it isn't a very "smooth" opening when you do open the visor

Almost a great helmet
This could be a great helmet, but it has 3 annoying problems:
1. The visor rubs the gasket, causing scratches that are visible in my peripheral vision. Many reviewers have already pointed this out. It's annoying but not a deal-breaker by itself.
2. The peak vibrates in the wind, causing a low frequency vibration that seems to get transmitted directly into my skull. Earplugs to nothing for this, and it's very fatiguing. I haven't noticed any other reviewers complaining about this, but it's a major problem for me, and I've been avoiding this helmet for day-to-day use as a result.
3. The cheek pads have no cutouts for speakers/intercom. Is this an adventure helmet or what? I don't like the idea of having to cut into the lining on an expensive helmet.

Other than those issues it's a great helmet -- stylish, good finish, great airflow. A little noisy, but that comes with the territory. The peak is functional, and catches less wind than the Arai and Fox helmets I've tried (aside from the annoying vibration). The lining is comfortable, and the helmet is light for what it is. I like that the peak and visor can be removed independently from each other, and the visor works fine with goggles.

AGV just needs to fix those three issues and they'll have the best adventure helmet as far as I'm concerned.

Gorgeous helmet
The black/gray/red color scheme is a perfect match for my red and gray bike, and the overall styling of the helmet is stunning.

I tried a medium (58cm) which was my head circumference, but the helmet seemed very tight on my face (I have a square jaw) and was exceedingly tight on my ears (big ears, too). It also seemed to ride high on my skull, at the back. Large is preferable.

Note: the faceshield does not open wide enough to allow you to fit glasses in without some inconvenience. Consider the tinted shield if you need sunglasses. Ventilation can also be improved with the AX-8 mesh chin vent.

Fantastic product.
For the first three weeks, my ears hurt, but on breaking-in into this helmet, its a fantastic helmet.
Great looks, Sturdy, no issues with the peak and connector screws, Clear visor.
The cut of the visor made it possible for riding in very heavy rains at night, by keeping the visor halfway open, although I compromised the cheek pads getting totally wet.

Great helmet
Comfortable, quiet, and has great visibility. Was concerned about the visor when head checking before buying but it has not been a problem. I'm thinking of buying another in another color!

loved the helmet, it didn't love me
Style, weight, features all great. If you have a square jaw line (think JFK) this may not be the helmet for you. The cheeks I expected to be snug. I must have tried this helmet on 3 times in hopes that it was my imagination. The pressure on my jaw bone was not imagined. Additionally I felt pressure on the top back of my head. Between those two pressure points, it was enough to dissuade me of keeping it. I normally wear a long oval hat. Maybe this helmet is a short oval. I was sad the fit was not proper.

Is AGV coming out with new helmet sizing what is the MS. ML about? What are this Medium sizes differences??
A shopper on Sep 29, 2014
Does this thing accept pinlock? Is there a pinlock option?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Doesn't appear to with the shield provided not sure if they provide an alternate shield.

Love the helmet however it does sit high in the back (on my head anyway). Also, since it is a dual sport version it would be nice if it had ear cut outs for a intercom unit. I tore some of the foam out of the sides and it seems to be working fine, but hated to have to do that to a brand-new helmet.
Goes the AGV AX-8 DS GT use the same accessories like the AX-8 (cheek pads, shields)?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2014
I read multiple reviews/complaints that the gasket itself scratches the shield... is this something that has been taken care of with a design update or is it still a design flaw..?
A C on Sep 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought this helmet in February of 2015 and it has the same problem. I don't know if there's a more recent model/version of the helmet, but mine has the same issue. It's not a really bad scratch. It doesn't hamper my vision, but really is just more of an annoyance than anything.
do the ax-8 dual evo cheek pads fit in the ax-8 dual evo gt?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Great Helmet, but it was very small so I sent it back to exchange. Might weight good looking and excellent for Dual sport adventure motorcycle.
how can i trim the cheek pads to make it fit a little better? i would like to slim the down a bit. thanks
JORGE M on Jan 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You want the helment to fit as tight as possible. The foam will start to break in after a few hours. Mine was super tight when I first put it know 5 hours of wear later it fit perfect. If it hurts to wear after that most mid to high end helments manufacturers sell replacement pads.

Good luck this is a sweet helment for the money
Is it comes with the chin spoiler?
Ely V on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has a curtain/spoiler. That being said, it has a tendency to come off when taking of the helmet. So you have to play with it. Still a great helmet.
What is the weight of this helmet?
A S on Jun 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Very light, at around 3lbs 5oz, compared to my previous Shoei helmets. Check out the helmet weigth updates at webbikeworld for a compariosn list.
Is the black/red matte or glossy? (The video shows glossy, the website images seem to be matte)
A shopper on Feb 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Glossy
Does the Ax8 face shield provide UV sun protection? Any written spec?
A C on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The shield is clear, no tint. I don't recall seeing any indication of UV protection but I've had the helmet for about a year and lost track of the documentation. I'm sure AGV would respond to your email. Btw, love the helmet, it's comfortable, ventilated, good field of vision, light. Doesn't fog up.
