AGV AX-8 DS EVO Karakum 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. 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 Certified

My Favorite helmet yet
I bought a small and it fits comfortably snug. At higher speeds the peak does better than the Variant I had, but if you're doing long distance I recommend you sick it in the ole back pack. It vents AWESOME and with the vents shut it is a very warm helmet. I've rode with it in PHX city traffic on my SV, on the mountains in AK on a KX450 Timbersled with a set of Oakley goggles and cruised Turnagian arm on the DRZ. For me it has been a very good multi-purpose helmet. I highly recommend it and if anyone needs more info on it the video reviews on Revzilla for it are spot on!

Almost perfect but a few glaring faults
1. Noise: suprisingly not bad. Coming from a Schuberth C3Pro which is supposed to be the quietest helmet around, I was worried AX8 Evo would be too loud. But it's alright! I think the sharp chin/beak cuts the air, and the higher collar/rim is less touched by turbulent airflow coming off my bike's wind shield. So yeah, the bike/helmet combination does make a difference. I ride a Multistrada Enduro with a short wind shield.

2. Comfort: nice. Smooth soft materials, hope they hold up over time... There is a thick padding at the top of the head which kinda puts pressure up there, but otherwise it's very comfortable and pleasantly light weight. The peak, although not adjustable, blocks sun at just the right level and doesn't tug the helmet too much at highway speed.

3. Build quality: mixed. The chin curtain falls out easily and is glued together with some rubber frame and synthetic fake suede, and so that's falling apart already. What else? The visor does not open up all the way, the peak is not adjustable, and everything is held together by these annoying screws and little plastic shims that you could easily lose when taking the peak off, or when changing the visor. COME ON AGV for 350 price range? Don't get me wrong the main helmet is structurally solid but the finishing details are all whack.

4. Ease of use: see some of the issues I've outlined above #3. And the shield only has a tab/ledge on the left side but I'm used to having a tab on both sides like my Schuberth lets me open the visor with either hand. Also, I hate D-rings, prefer a rapid ratchet strap (quick release?) - it is no less safe than D-rings. These D-rings you fumble and it's impossible without taking both gloves off. AGV come on give us ratchet straps.

5. Air flow: awesome. Especially with the extra room in front of your mouth the breath doesn't immediately fog up the shield. And although the cracked position is wide, the shield starts so low that your eyes are well covered and lets a ton of air in. The top vent is 3mm in diameter and I can't tell if it does anything, I'm also not sure if this helmet needs it. The eyebrow vents are awesome, the air they let in would tickle my temples at speed.

6. Aerodynamics: not bad! Despite the angular shape and peak. The narrow front profile cuts through air nicely. Lateral head checks are not tugging until you go above 75mph (also I faced a head wind when testing this). The peak vibrates at above 80, but not dramatically (AGV advises you to remove the peak if going faster than 60). Some vibration at 90mph without the peak. As I've said before, the bike/windshield/helmet combination plays a role so your experience may vary.

Bought this at close-out price for the Karakoum graphic. Not sure if I would have bought it at full price. Hope AGV will improve on the nitpicks noted above.

I need to get a new dual sport helmet and I don't know what would be best for me?
I know I want something light, quite and with good ventilation. I currently have a Hornet. It fits perfectly
when I wear an Arai it does not fit me right.

Please let me know what would be the best one for me
Thanks,
Bob

BEST ANSWER: I love this helmet! It makes for a good street and adventure helmet. It is very light and can be worn with goggles comfortably when you need to. If you watch the Video break down it has a lot of awesome info on it.
Where is this helmet made?
