Product Details

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

Shape: Intermediate Oval

Weight: 3.43 lbs.

Initial quality good, deteriorates rapidly
I go this helmet because I couldn't afford the Arai XD4 at the time and I really regret this. The AGV quality isn't great for something in this price range. After about a year, little bits and pieces started to fall off and the rubber lining that goes around the bottom edge has all but come off entirely after a couple years. Another annoying thing is that the shield gets scratched when you raise it up. Overall not very satisfied with this helmet

fits good. looks cool, has a major flaw.
cool helmet, but within 500 miles of riding the top 2" of the face shield is totally scratched from the rain/ dust seal. not worth buying if you have to deal with that almost immediately after buying it and the cost of a replacement is hardly worth it. how did this helmet ever make it past testing and into production!?

Design needs some work
I am regretting the purchase of this helmet.
Buffeting is pretty pad, with or without the peak.
There are no pockets for speakers in the helmet.
The visor has an annoying gap that is whiny at freeway speeds. I had to tape the top of the visor to get rid of the extremely whiny noise at speed.
It is a pain to replace the visor. You will need tools or a quarter, which is only slightly annoying, but still pretty lame.
The chin insert gets popped out every time I take off the helmet. I will probably trim it.
My Shoei, Bell, Fly, and even HJC helmets have all been better than this helmet.

A Great Helmet
This is an initial review after two days of riding. I bought the helmet on sale and am extremely happy with it. I hope AGV continues with this helmet line.

The helmet is extremely light and is one of the most comfortable helmets I have worn. I bought this helmet to replace my Shoei Hornet X2 and my ancient Arai. The AX-8 is more comfortable than both those helmets. Air flows nicely at any speed in the AX-8 and the AX-8 has the best field of vision of any helmet that I have owned. It has some annoying bits to the helmet though. For one the visor only locks in two positions, not a deal breaker but AGV should find a better locking system for the visor. The helmet visor vibrates when speed is greater than 60mph. This is annoying and I wouldn't ride too long on the highway without removing the visor. In all, though I am pleased with this helmet.

Very comfortable and quiet helmet.
I love this helmet it seems very aerodynamic and fits extremely comfortably. Noice lever is very low and shoulder checkinG is very easy due to its wide field of vision.

Not built to last
I’ve had this helmet for a couple years now. Overall, not a bad helmet with a few nice features, but plenty more bad than good.
Pros:
Nice looking helmet, with a nice wide field of vision. Fairly lightweight and not too noisy at high speeds. Comfortable fit.
Cons:
Ventilation sucks, i am constantly having to crack the face shield to get airflow, otherwise it fogs up.
Cheap construction, top vent broke off shortly after i got the helmet. The face shield screws are aluminum, after a few times removing them,they are stripped and pretty much unusable.
Face shields are super expensive, $70 a pop, and are easily scratched.
No pinlock is available for this helmet.
Face shield rubs against the top of the helmet when open so it get scratched all along the top.

Wont ever buy another AGV helmet, going with schubert or Arai next time.

Saved My Life Yesterday
Bottom line: without this helmet I would likely not be here today. Just yesterday I was making my way home from spending father's day with my Dad and lowsided on the 5 Freeway in Orange County at 75 mph. I walked away from the accident with a hairline-fractured wrist and a minor concussion, discharged from the hospital in 3 hours. It's amazing how well the helmet held up to grinding against the pavement, the visor didn't even snap off!
If you want a dual sport helmet that's been tried and tested on the freeway, this is the one. It's not perfect, it's bulky, it's hot (goggles fix that), and it's annoying (someone needs to redesign the chinstrap), but it works really damn well ( and looks pretty cool). I will definitely be buying another one!
(Also it's great for people with glasses)

LOONNNNGGGGG term review
i have the AX-8 DS (non EVO) .. ive owned it 5+ years with a lot of miles on it..
im actually replaceing it this month with a new EVO.
even after 5+ yrs the fit is still excellent. the covering on the one strap has finally given up the ghost and is falling apart.... being in az its no wonder with being beat up by the heat in summer.
my biggest complaint (about 99.9% of the helmets out there) is the noise at speed... AGV used to make a helmet back in the 90's called a Q3R.. it was a tight fit for about 5 rides then perfection.. never needed ear plugs with that helmet at any speed.. SUPER QUIET.. they need to bring back that inside design (pretty sure its cause it didnt have pockets for the ears like everything today does) . i wear ear plugs for everything other than in town rides..
i personally have been tucked in at 145mph on my zrx with this helmet n never had any kinda of buffeting/beating my neck up.. at speed its smooth as silk.. whoever designed the helmet/visor was one smart cookie. i can run highway and not even know that visor is there.. turning my head never bothers the stability in the slightest that ive ever felt..
all around this helmet is a awesome helmet.. exactly why im replacing it today with a new one..

A very Decent Helemt for the money.
Dual sport helmets are always going to be a compromise on something, I accept that. And this helmet is definitely a great bang for you buck DS helmet, and super light.

As some other reviewers have mentioned, the peak does vibrate at speed, and this vibration can be very distracting. However drawing inspiration from another guy on here who found that the vibrations lessened when adding a flashlight to his visor, I decided to try something more low profile. I took six 5g wheel weights and stuck them to the underside of the peak, spread out somewhat evenly. I found that this made a huge difference in the vibrations. It didn't eliminate them, but is slowed down the frequency it vibrated at and reduced the situations in which it was noticeable. I now only get an annoying vibration when the wind hits me at just the right angle, but 90% of the time I'm riding 50 mph or more, it is completely unnoticeable. I may try adding a couple more weights int eh future, to see if that helps even more, but for the time being I'm satisfied with my fix.

I also installed a Sena 30K on this helmet, which right out of the box, looked like it may be somewhat complicated, given that the cheek pads that come with this helmet do not have cuttouts for your ears, instead they're like Aria helmets where the padding is continuous and rests directly against your ears. This is probably to help reduce wind noise. Again, operating on a tip from another user, I ordered the cheekpads form the AX-8 Evo dirtbike helmet, because though cheekpads have no material directly over the ears. With these dirt cheekpads installed, it's relatively easy to secure the Sena speakers to the inside wall of the helmet, using the thinner foam spacer, and get them lined up with your ears. The Sena clamp style base plate can only really be inserted in one location, trying to move it forward or rearwards from the location just rearward of the side chin vent and I found that there were obstructions in the shell that prohibited proper installation. Lastly I found that the use of the non-boom mic, the one that just has a wire and needs velcroed in place, worked best with the cheek pad and base plate, to keep the wires out of the way.

Now, even with the Sena speakers resting against my ears, this helmet is not quiet. I always wear earplugs when doing any riding more than just a quick ride around town. This isn't a negative in my book, since I've always worn either ear plugs or headphones when riding, as my past sport helmets weren't quite either. I have purchase "high fidelity" earplugs that supposedly transmit low decibel sound better, than traditional foam plugs, and while I haven't done back to back testing, I can hear my Sena perfectly well at highways speeds.

The Visor on this helmet is massive, easily the largest viewing window of any helmet I've ever tried on. The only downside is that it doesn't flip up as far as other visors, because of the peak, which leaves the bottom edge somewhat in your upper line of sight if you're riding around with it fully open. I also find that the indent for the smallest locked in opening is farther up than I would prefer. It would be nice to have a setting that left the visor just barely cracked. this is an especially noticeable issue since I really feel that the helmet does not vent adequately through the front mouth vent. This could be exacerbated by the tall windshield on my Versys, but when riding in foggy conditions there's nothing I ca do, short to flipping the visor up, to keep it from fogging over.It is possible to completely remove the front vent, but that leaves a wide open hole, with no mesh or foam to filter the incoming air.

Lastly, there have been many people who have complained that the visor rubs the top seal causing abrasions on the inside of the upper portion of the shield. Some insist AGV have fixed this issue, but on my newly purchased helmet, it is still an issue. I did get the Karakum graphic, which is on closeout, so it's possible my helmet was made before the supposed fix, but that is just speculation. What I do know, is that sometime in the future I'm going to be forced to buy a new face shield.

Questionable long term durability...
I've had the helmet for five years and it's been OK. I was recently surprised to see that the rubber trim / molding is rotting off. Damn thing is ugly now. I know nothing lasts forever but I've had cheaper helmets last longer and maintain better. Paid 450 when new so I thought I was getting better than that. Oh well.

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.

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.
Avery A on Sep 23, 2013
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.

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?

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.

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?

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,

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.
