AGV Horizon Helmet - Solid Colors The design of the AGV Horizon largely reflects that of the Stealth SV, which it replaces in the line. Inspired by the lines that have characterized the innovations by AGV for several years now, it features a narrow, streamlined chin guard, the channels in the shell (derived from the IVS used in the RACE helmets), evident lines and edges on the sides. The spoiler adds an aggressive and dynamic touch to the design and improves the ventilation, aerodynamics and stability of the helmet. The removal of the holes and lateral grids not only gives the helmet a more compact look, but has made it possible to reduce turbulence and improve the aerodynamics. Features Shell Carbonglass (Fiberglass and carbon shell) Shell Sizes 2 EPS Liner Multi-density Ventilation System IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with channels formed directly in the outer shell and dynamic system with air vents and rear extractors Interior Dry-Lex with sanitizing treatment Internal Padding Completely removable and washable Removable chin curtain and breath deflector included Faceshield GT2 clear visor in optical class 1 Faceshield Non-scratch and anti-fog polycarbonate with 100 protection from UV radiation Visor Mechanism XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) visor removal and replacement without tools in just a few seconds Internal Sunshield Drop down ISV (Internal Sun Visor) is non-scratch and anti-fog polycarbonate Retention System Double D Safety Certification DOT and ECE 22.05

Bought this to accommodate my riding times which usually start needing a clear visor then needing a smoked visor. Since carrying around an extra visor was not on my priority list of things to take up space in my backpack I quickly found myself looking at this helmet because of AGV's reputation, cost to quality ratio, and drop down sun visor. The helmet is sexy, plain and simple. It fits well and is very comfortable with great airflow, however I can't speak for it's summer time performance yet as I've only used it over the winter so far. My biggest gripe would be shell size (though I can't expect too much in this area since it dos have the built in sun visor) and the fact that the sun visor as one spot on it where there is some distortion. I don't always notice it but when looking to the right a bit to watch cross traffic I'll see my vision fall into the distortion spot which is kind of irritating at times. Not sure if all their sun visors are like this or if it was just the one that shipped with my lid. Either way the pros far outweigh the cons and I'd definitely purchase this again. AGV has a great lid with the HORIZON that checks off all the main oints on my list. Comfortable, Great Airflow, Light, Versatile, and Looks stunning.
Yes, I recommend this product.
