AGV Grid: high-end race features at an accessible price

Dailies, Galleries -


Equipped with most of the features of the flagship GP-Tech, this new AGV Grid is a high-value take on the high-end road racing helmet. Weight is relatively low — 1,500g — comfort is good thanks to a plush, removable liner and it benefits from a new, less-awkward visor mechanism being rolled out across the AGV line. At $400, this ECE22.05-certified helmet undercuts heavier rivals from Arai and Shoei by a couple hundred dollars and also benefits from a host of classic race replica color schemes, including the Marco Lucchinelli seen here.

    Not sure about the 1984 red white and blue graphic.

    Italy, the land graphic design forgot.

      “1984″ is exactly what I dig about it. It’s Buckaroo Banzai bitchin’.

      Heck, I’d love it if AGV brought back the KR helmet. Not much into retro myself, but I loved that one.

    So now I’m stuck between getting the Grid or getting the AX-8 Dual.

    Country of origin? Okay, I’ll stop, but I would really, really love to know where some of this stuff comes from.

    Are these the real AGV helmets or are they fakes?
