What's this?

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.

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

Shoei Hornet, Arai XD-4, or AGV Dual EVO? AGV Dual EVO!!!
I wanted a good dual sport helmet, and not some junk $110 bare minimum helmet. So, I looked primarily at the Shoei Hornet, the Arai XD-4, and the new AGV Dual EVO. They're all top-teir manufacturers who make quality products. Ok, I've been wearing Arai Helmets for the last 10 years, so my natural instinct was to go with the Arai. But then I discovered the AGV Dual EVO and had to check it out. I ruled the Shoei out pretty fast as it has quite a few negative reviews and I just didn't like it when I saw it in person.

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

Good, but not perfect - A long term review
I've had this helmet for about two years now, so I've had plenty of time to see how the helmet has performed, the pros and the cons. In general I'm pretty happy with it, but it's definitely not a perfect helmet.

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!

Good helmet but some things to consider.
I have owned the non Evo version of this helmet (AGV 8X DS) for a year now and though it's a good helmet I wish there were some things I knew before hand.

The Good:
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.

One issue!
I have ridden with this helmet for about 3 months now and am very happy with everything but one. The top half of the shield rubs on the gasket at the top when you open the face shield. This has led to the top half of the face shield being scratched and it is right in line with your vision. I may be the unlucky one and just gotten a dud. But unless you want to replace the shield every 3 month stay away from this helmet.

Great look/fit/feel
This helmet is awesome. I came from dirt bike helmets to the icon variant (also a nice helmet but not as nice as the agv) to this. The only thing I would say is a down side is the mouth of the helmet seems close to your face like a lot of street bike helmets. Coming from Mx helmets this will take time to get used to.

the price is right
Compared to the other high-end DS helmets, this one is pretty basic - and the price reflects as much. I chose it because of the value and style. I wasn't sure what to expect because the reviews of this helmet are all over the place. I was pleasantly surprised to find the helmet is quieter than my Shoei Qwest it's replacing and it's very stable at speeds up to 75mph. It's my first DS helmet and I was concerned the peak would be too much like a sail. It will catch some air but it isn't crazy. The chin curtain fell apart on me during the first ride. Really poor build quality there. I might super glue it - might not. Venting is good. Other reviews complain about the face shield developing scratches from the gasket. I see what they're talking about and I'm OK with getting a new shield from time to time because this is the coolest-looking DS helmet on the market and after wearing it for a few hundred miles I'm very happy I bought it. It comes with extra face shield mechanism parts which give you the option of having a detent halfway between open and closed or no middle detent. I got it at RevZilla's shop in Philadelphia. Cool place.

Perfect*** (If you're not using a headset.)
Coming from an AGV K4 EVO, I expected a similar fit with a similar sizing. This AX-8 EVO that I received in large is a perfect and snug fit. It is a very light helmet and out of all of the other DS helmets, it is the sharpest looking one. The visor seal stops any water from outside and the switches and vents are easy to operate. The one and only qualm I have with this helmet is I cannot comfortably run SENA speakers in it. They create pressure points on my ears. This causes discomfort on 30+ minute rides and when taking the helmet off. In addition, mounting the headset bracket involves working with the rubberized footing at the base of the helmet, which crackles as the glue comes apart when you do so. Buy this helmet if you don't plan on using a headset and be happy as a clam. Look elsewhere if you want to use the bluetooth.

Not a bad helmet for my usage.
I use this helmet when I ride my BMW R1100 RT, so I'm using it for road riding. I've also been riding dirtbikes for decades so I know what I like about particular helmets.
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.

Good helmet but NOISY!
I have worn this helmet for several thousand miles now, both in town & extended trips. The fit leans toward the rounder side of the oval head shape. Not quite as round as an Arai RX-Q but close. I find it to be a comfortable helmet all round. If you use in-helmet speakers you will have to modify the ear pockets as there is not enough room provided for even the thinnest speakers. The helmet is also very noisy which I attribute to the basic design of the helmet. The field of vision is huge which is why I was attracted to this helmet. Unfortunately the shield detent/ratchet stops are very far apart & there is no detent for just cracking the visor for clearing breath fog. The screws that hold the shield in place vibrated loose & fell out on my second ride causing some fumbling to catch the shield. AGV said they were sorry but wouldn't send me a new set. Don't be so cheap AGV. The peak makes head checks at speed require a few attempts to get used to but when you expect the extra lift it becomes routine. All said this is a good helmet but these small quirks keep it from being a really great helmet.

Good at first, BUT...
This helmet looks really sweet and provides good visibility and airflow. That's about it. It's poorly built: the visor on mine has broken twice, the chin strap snap has fallen off, the fabric pulls on the d-ring has fallen off, it scratches incredibly easily, and the fabric inside pills up badly. This was my first and last AGV product.

I chose this helmet based on primarily based on reviews, especially about noise level, weight, and stability at speed. I originally wanted an Icon Variant, but this helmet seemed to be more dual sport oriented. Plus it looks better with the peak off. I'll post a full review when it arrives.

Recommendation from Revzilla Rep based on the description of my odd shaped head.

Because its stylish.

Looks nice on a sumo.
En H on Nov 29, 2014
look at it
petehemlock on Sep 23, 2014
i chose this helmet because it has a jet fighter look with wide peripheral vision and because the icon vaquero is sold out and because i can't afford the AGV Pista GP carbon helmet right now.

Great features, great look - getting back to owning a bike and new to the market - video breakdown helped with the selection, venting looks easy to use appears to be 3 to 4 season riding helmet and versatile to use off road!

Been acing to try a DualSport. This seems like a good entry-level helmet.

AGV makes hands down the best helmet on the market! I spare no expense when it comes to protecting my dome piece.
Brian C on Jan 31, 2014
This helmet has all the features I was looking for EXCEPT a drop down sun visor. I will post more after having worn it for a while assuming it fits my head shape.

Have worn the helmet for 3 months now. It fits me well (similar to Arai RX-Q). Great field of view.
Only complaints: Noisy & intercom speakers were a difficult fit. Required trimming the foam which I don't like doing. Check the tightness of the visor mounts before & after riding. Mine fell out on the first ride.

Light, good styling for DS bike, removable visor, accepts goggles.

I was looking for a white helmet to wear at night in order to increase my visibility. I opted to go with the AGV AX-8 DS Evo for several reasons...1. The increased line of vision which will reduce my blind spot at night, 2. Aggressive style, 3. The quality and affordability of AGV and 4. Planting a seed to eventually purchase a dual sport bike, 5. The white so i can be seen at night.
I'm currently on a Duc Monster with a black jacket and black matte arai... Not safe at night.

I wanted something with some decent visibility. The AGV AX-8 delivered in spades.

How is the clarity of the shield? I have a cheap Bilt adventure helmet, It is like looking through a fish bowl. Very distracting.
A shopper on Feb 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is the best full face helmet and shield on any helmet I have ever owned. It is super clear and practically distortion free. There is NO blind spot with this helmet, you have complete peripheral vision and it is super light weight. I love this helmet. It runs a little small but with Revzilla's no hassle exchange its a no brainer. I personally think it looks best without the visor on.
There is much talk of this helmet being very light weight. Can you tell me how heavy this helmet is in a large or medium?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I find this helmet to be very well balanced & fairly light. It weighs 3 lbs/ 4.6 oz on my kitchen scale. It feels substantially lighter than my Arai RXQ. As this was a Christmas gift & I live in Alaska & it's currently too slick to ride.
so I can't speak to the noise levels but expect it will have a little extra due to the peak.
This or the icon varient?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This for sure.
I bought this helmet, but I lost the removable chin vent slider piece. Can't seem to find one online. Anyone know where I could order another?
Timothy J on Jan 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You may have some luck talking to the office in the L.A. area office. I have troubles with the visor breaking off and they were no help at all with that.
Hey i was wondering if the visor peak on this helmet was removable?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is. You have to have a screwdriver to do it, but it can be removed. Enjoy the helmet! I love mine!
Hello! I'm interested to buy this helmet, but afraid to miss the size. I live in Ukraine, so due to complexity of returning process (to the USA and back - it's neither cheap nor fast) i'd like to pay extra attention picking the right size.
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.
Konstantin U on Nov 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hi Konstantin,

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
Just bought the helmet. Where can i get a dark visor for it?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Revzilla carries it. It's the version from the previous helmet version but fits the new evo. I have it and it's super cool.
I would be installing a Sena BT headset in this helmet. Does anyone else have this set up? I see in the other questions where it says there are no recessed spots for the helmet speakers, is this a problem when it comes to comfort?
Paul B on Sep 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I installed the smh-10 headset fairly easily on this helmet. There is room for the speakers.

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,
--Jason
There is much talk of this helmet being very light weight. Can you tell me how heavy it is in a large or medium?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This is the lightest helmet I have ever used. It is so light and comfy that I have forgotten I had it on a few times. Fantastic bucket for your brain holder. Seriously you will not be disappointed with this helmet. AGV is the best.
Is there a pinlock option for this helmet?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: At this time there is no pinlock shield available for the AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet.
