AGV K5 Jet Helmet
From the 2016 AGV Helmets collection, meet the stunning new AGV K5 Jet helmet, available from 16 Feb. When you want to feel the freedom of open face riding, but without rushing wind or bugs in your face, or the glare of the sun in your eyes, the K5 Jet is the lid for you. It's a beautifully sculpted helmet which lends itself to the daily commute, zipping around the city, or touring in sunny climes. The full length clear visor extends to below your chin, providing you with better than normal wind protection than a standard open face. Then there's the bonus of the internal sun visor, which will give you a clear view of the road in sunny conditions.
The helmet is ECE 22/05 homologated, with the shell made from a blend of carbon fibre and fibreglass. The shell comes in two different sizes, then there are four different EPS inner lining densities, to make up seven helmet sizes, from XS to XL. The helmet is nice and light, weighing 1350g (for the size MS) and features a breathable inner lining, which is also removable, to keep you comfortable whilst you're on your ride. There are two front air vents and a rear outlet, to give you a nice flow of cooling air across the top of your head. You can close the vents in cooler weather.
The AGV K5 Jet comes with a micro-metric adjustable buckle to secure the helmet and to provide a nice firm fit. There's an integrated rear spoiler, to help the air move smoothly over the shell, reducing wind buffeting at speed. The visor can be completely removed if you wish, without the need for any tools, great for when you want to experience the full effect of open face riding. The K5 Jet is available in a variety of colours, including both a matte and gloss black, which always look great on a motorcycle helmet, plus the special graphic design, the Threesixty.
We see the AGV K5 Jet as becoming a really popular choice for urban commuters. In cities such as London, or European cities such as Madrid, Paris and Rome, we often see riders on commuter bikes, maybe in a smart suit and this helmet will really set off the look whilst remaining highly practical. If you ride a maxi scooter and or if you're lucky enough to have one of the new Triumph Bonneville or Thruxton, this helmet will serve you perfectly.
Take a look through the K5 Jet range above and choose your favourite colour. Be sure to double check your size using our helmet sizing chart, which you'll find on every helmet page. Simply select the 'Sizing' tab for guidance on how to accurately measure your head and how this translates to the K5 Jet sizing. AGV are the only helmet manufacturer who make an MS and ML size, splitting the medium category into two, which helps to refine the exact size you need.
