AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet Brand new for fall 2011, the AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet takes one of the most high-end and lightweight dualsport helmets on the market (AX-8 DS) and makes some significant upgrades. The design and the line inevitably recall the AX-8 Model from which it is derived, but additional technical features like the visor and the specific visor mechanism, the chin air vent that can be opened, and the open-able supplementary ventilation on the top guarantee all the performance and comfort of a road model. New internal padding with increased thickness for improved comfort and greater stability in professional use. New shape of the outer shell in the chin area which, 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 New flat dual face shield in non-scratch, antifog polycarbonate Dry-Lex internal padding with sanitized treatment Removable and washable cheekpads and internal lining Outer aluminum peak screws 3 shell sizes DOT and ECE 22.05 Certified
This DS helmet has very soft and comfortable liner fabric, looks fantastic, and is probably one of the lightest of its class.
I use this on my Moto Guzzi Stelvio and unfortunately the turbulence off the top of the windshield causes the "beak" to vibrate madly at highway speeds. If I take the windshield off the bike or the beak off the helmet, it's fine.
This helmet can also be used with goggles (I use Scott 87 OTG goggles), but the shield must be removed.
