AGV K5 Motorcycle Helmet
The AGV K5 is the new sports helmet from AGV, incorporating all of the development from their top end helmets, including the Pista GP of Valentino Rossi. The AGV K5 is the most affordable way of getting a leading AGV helmet which performs brilliantly in aerodynamics, fit, comfort and style.

Customers who have bought the K5 have commented that this latest incarnation in the AGV helmets range is very comfortable, nice and light, has sufficient room for intercom speakers and is quiet, even at speed. They also agree that the sun visor has a really nice, smooth mechanism, which helps hugely when you have your gloves on, plus the vents work nicely, providing a good flow of air to the brow and face, through the upper and lower vents. AGV have clearly achieved what they intended with this motorcycle helmet, incorporating the best parts of their most expensive helmets into the AGV K5, but at an affordable price for the everyday rider.
The AGV K5 is ECE approved for Europe, plus NBR, AS-NZS and ECE-Asia, and at just 1390g, it's light and aerodynamic. The carbon, kevlar and fibreglass shell has an integrated rear spoiler to help air flow efficiently over the helmet, providing excellent stability, even at speed. As well as a scratch resistant clear visor, it has a drop down sun visor, essential for touring, the daily commute or just when the sun is low in the sky. There are also a range of tinted visors, all of which you can view above. The quick release visor mechanism makes it easy to swap over visors, when your riding conditions change.
The AGV K5 is available in six sizes, from XS to XL, and rather than just a medium size spanning 57-58cm, the K5 has two separate sizes, MS (57cm) and ML (58cm), to provide the perfect fit at this most common head measurement. The sizing range is covered by two shell sizes and four EPS inner shells. Ventilation is excellent, providing a cool flow of air to the brow when required, via two air vents to the sides, a front vent, plus two rear vents, which can be opened and closed to regulate the air flow. There's another vent in the chin guard area, to provide further cooling. The removable inner lining is made from breathable Dri-lex, to help prevent sweating.
The K5 has a removable chin wind stopper and breath guard, plus it's prepared for AGV's Share communications system. The visor uses AGV's latest quick release mechanism, so you can change visors in seconds and the helmet is secured with a double D-ring. AGV has revolutionised its motorcycle helmet range over the last couple of years and is now exceptionally well represented in this mid-price range. At around the £200 mark, the new K5 is definitely worth your consideration. All of the technology from the top of the range helmets has filtered down into AGV's more affordable models, which means that factors such as the aerodynamic learnings gleaned from Valentino Rossi's and Guy Martin's lids have been incorporated, to help develop the integrated spoiler of the AGV K5.
