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 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 new internal padding with increased thickness for improved comfort and greater stability. A new 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 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

I got the AX-8 EVO DS to replace an aging Fly Trekker helmet. Right off the bat, the AX-8 has much plusher padding and cushions your head a lot better than the Fly. Putting on the helmet and the weight different was felt immediately. I also find it to be very aerodynamics with very little lift at speed (relatively speaking to other Adventure style helmets). It's also very quiet with very good ventilation. The top vents work very well. I am not able to test the chin vent with a tall windscreen on the bike. Big plus that the chin vent can be removed completely and comes with nose and chin guard; gives you options different situations.
The fit to me is very good. Due to my odd rounder head shape, it's very difficult to find a helmet that fit me. I have an AGV S4 in medium and that fits like a glove. Unfortunately, AGV discontinued that helmet and no longer makes a helmet with that internal shape. I found the AX-8 to be very similar, being only slightly more oval than the S4. As the result, I have to go up 1 size to a Large so it's not too tight at my temples.
Overall, it's a very aggressive and good looking helmet with many great features for the price point. It also offers options to be worn in different weather and situations. It's a great buy.
Yes, I recommend this product.
