AGV AX-8 DS EVO 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 vent on the top of the AGV AX-8 EVO guarantees 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. The 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.
- 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

Reviews & Questions
So, now it's down to the Arai and the AGV. Ok, this is where things get a little sticky. I will say without a doubt that the Arai is a HIGHER QUALITY helmet with better craftsmanship. When you put the two side-by-side, that's apparent to anyone. The padding in the Arai is made of multiple density foams and it's covered by a softer-faced fabric. The AGV is still very comfortable, but the foam isn't quite as nice. Also the plastics and vinyl used for the chinstrap, nape area, and bordering areas isn't as high of quality as the Arai. But that's about it on the differences in quality. Are those to minor details worth the extra $150 bucks? To me, no.
Ok, so let's talk about the AGV:
SIZE: The sizing was spot on. Do yourself a favor and buy a $3 cloth measuring tape with both inches and millimeters and measure your head. Use that measurement to order your helmet size. At first I thought it might be too tight, but the foam has broken in and it's great. One thing I don't particularly find super comfortable is the chin strap. I feel it could be moved slightly forward as it tends to cut into your neck a little where it's currently at. I just wear it a little looser to counter that.
WEIGHT: Super light weight helmet! Perfect for those all day rides. However, they need to add some weight to the visor/peak. It occasionally vibrates at high-speeds (70-80), but when I strapped a small headlamp to it for off-road night use, all that went away. ZERO chatter at regular speeds.
NOISE: Ok, I'm going to knock off a few points here. It could be a quieter helmet. It's not as quiet as my previous Arai's, but I made a slight mod that fixed that. I removed the two cheek pads and put a section of Dynamat inside the helmet by each ear. Popped the ear pads back in and viola! Quiet hemet.
VISION: AMMMMMMAAAAAAAZZZZZZIIIIIIINGGG!!! The field of view on this helmet was the selling point for me! It's so good that you forget you're wearing a full face helmet. Anyone who says you don't need a dirt helmet with a wide field of view on a dual-sport doesn't know what they're missing. Zero distortion on the lenses...I have both smoke and clear.
VENTING: Pretty darn good. No hot spots and I like that all the vents are low profile, so there's no little plastic parts or covers sticking out that will break off when you drop it.
FOGGING: Well, this depends. Under most circumstances I have zero issues. BUT, I live and ride every single day in Seattle. When it's cold AND raining, I haven't worn a helmet yet that doesn't fog from the differential in temperature from your breath inside the helmet and the cold, wet air hitting the face shield. What did I do? Put a Respro Foggy in it on those days. Problem solved.
OVERALL: Styling is awesome! Looks good both with and without the visor/peak. Comfortable, lightweight, great field of view. Quality is 100% perfect, but the price point isn't too bad either. I'd like to see this helmet at the $300-$350 mark and the Arai at the $450 mark as that's what they're really worth.
Ok, hope that helps with your
Let's start with the bad:
- My biggest complaint with the helmet is that the upper water seal that prevents water from coming inside de helmet from the top is too hard and in time ends up scratching the face visors. I have two visors (clear and smoke), and both have a cloudy mass on top of my eyes because of the scratching. It's manageable, but definitely uncomfortable. (I did read that they fixed the problem eventually, no idea if they actually did)
-Noise and wind. This helmet is quite noisy at high speeds, and the shape makes the helmet move when you turn your head. This is with the peak off. Peak + high speeds is out of the question, the wind makes it vibrate at a very obnoxious low frequency. When I go touring, my solution is using some good earplugs and go without a peak, then it is ok.
-Safety. I've noticed the helmet doesn't cover as much of the lower-back of the head as other helmets. This is a small cause for concern, however I'm not totally certain it does have an impact on the helmet's safety. Fortunately I haven't had a crash with it yet
-Fogging. The visors are supposed to have antifogging coating, but with both shields it fell away very fast even with proper washing care... The solution here is slightly open the visors. It takes some getting used to because it has few stops but you get the hang of it.
Not all of it is bad though, it has some very good pros:
+Weight. This helmet is LIGHT. I mean super light. It's always come out as the lightest in any direct comparison I've done (with plenty of other moto friends). Once it's on, you basically forget it's there
+Vision. The faceshield is huge. It has by far the largest field of view I've seen in any helmet (including Schuberth and Nexxt, which pride themselves in having great fields of view). I love that it doesn't only have lateral FOV, but horizontal. It's super comfortable to just flick your eyes down and see the instrument panel without having the helmet blocking you.
+Comfort. The lining is super comfortable, soft and easy to wash. The general fit, strap and weight are superb. This and the amazing field of view add to the experience of not feeling the helmet on your head.
+Style. I love this helmet's looks, both the physical design and the paint scheme (I have the white, red and black). I love that it's pretty different from most helmets, it's far from boring but it's not the typical super crowded and blegh raceboi designs.
+Versatility. The helmet is designed to have the visor popped out and put some goggles on. I haven't ever done this as I have a dedicated enduro helmet, but it's good to have the option. I also like the option of having the peak. In city riding it's nice to have when the sun is going down, and even to just switch its looks.
In the end it's a very cool helmet, with very good features, but it's not the best. The price is a little too high for my liking, however if you manage to find it on discount as I did it's a good option. See the cons, and if you can live with them, go for it, it's a great helmet!
The helmet has great styling, it is very light, and It has an excellent field of view. Also, this helmet moves a lot of air and stays very cool. I spent this summer driving in 111 degree weather and my head was the coolest part of me. Overall this is a comfortable helmet.
Things to consider:
Anthony mentions in the review video (@ about 3:30) that you can flip your face shield down over your goggles if you hit a dust cloud. However, this is not the case. Wearing goggles with this helmet requires you to remove the face shield completely (unlike the Arai and Shoei variants). Goggles will not fit properly with the face shield on and open, let alone close down over the straps.
Removing the face shield requires tools.
You can not "crack open" the face shield to allow a little air to flow. There are only three positions for the face shield... closed, half open, and fully open. In the halfway position the aggressively angled bottom edge of the shield lines up directly in your field of vision distorting your view.
The optional/replacement face shields are among the most expensive I've seen.
There are no recesses in the helmet for intercom speakers.
For what it's worth the AGV AX DS is still a good helmet just some food for thought.
For me the decision to by this helmet allowed a melding of the attributes I wanted in a helmet. Mainly a good sealing face shield, a wide field of vision and a peak or visor.
The AGV does all that and generally I'm pleased with it.
My only complaint at this point is the obviously flimsy construction of the peak, it's very weak and doesn't need much force to get it to snap. Mine took one tumble into a gravel parking lot from the seat of my bike when the wind caught it and blew it off. $37 later and I have a new peak, I will be very careful with it this time. My dirtbike helmet has taken many more times the abuse and has even survived a few mellow endows intact. That's what a dual sport helmet should be able to withstand. If I used this helmet on my dirtbike that stylin peak would be snapped off in the first fifteen minutes of riding.
For the usage I bought it for it's okay, I'm satisfied with it.
so I can't speak to the noise levels but expect it will have a little extra due to the peak.
Usually I wear "M" sized helmets. I have tried Icon Variant sized "M", HJC CS-12N sized "M", Shark S650 sized "M". But, the only AGV helmet I tried - it was AGV RC-5 Skull off-road helmet, also sized "M" - was unbeleivably small for me.
I also tried Uvex Enduro and it also should have been size "L" to fit my head.
So, can anyone tell how AGV AX-8 DS EVO compares to other helmets, preferrably of the brands described above?
Many thanks in advance.
I have a large oval shaped head. I originally ordered a LG based on previous HJC Symax sizing. However, in this size although the helmet felt quite tight, I was able to push it up and off from under the chin bar. Exchanged it for a MD and this is perfect. Tight but comfortable with no risk of coming off. A great helmet BTW - quiet, light, well ventilated and the visor keeps distracting sunlight flashes off the screen. Hope this helps, cheers Bruce
I removed the padded inserts (they snap out easily) and slid the speakers between the actual padding and the fabric cover. It was very easy to do. I don't remember having to make any modifications to the padded inserts for the speakers. If anything, I might have had to make a small incision to slide them in. You will need to play with the wiring a little bit, but it all fits together nicely.
A couple of tips:
1.My headset came with a wired mic and a boom style mic. The wired option works much better.
2. If you plan on using your headset for listening to music, I highly recommend a set of Torx speakers. They plug into the Sena headset and sound incredibly good.
Hope this helps,
