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

Looking for something with a day/night capability, I got this mostly for the quick change visor and internal sunshield. While both are fairly clear optically, the internal visor mounting leaves a bit to be desired. After a jolt to the helmet, a locking tab broke off leaving the internal visor nearly functionless. A good excuse to replace it with an iridium visor though.
Fit and finish is fitting given the price range, with a beautiful gloss coat over my white finish. The interior could stand to be dark for desert riding, and the microphone port larger to accommodate sena sized mics and booms. Overall, this helmet delivers adequate value for the price. It ain't cheap, and wind noise is still present in nearly upright positions (such as a ducati hypermotard) but on forward leaning bikes it's quieter. The front face has a pretty aero bend to the chin, which makes auto emblem tape a necessity for mounting bluetooth.
Are there better helmets at this price range? Possibly,but compared to a shoei air journey, this is a bargain for a lot of the same functionality.
Yes, I recommend this product.
