Helmet is the most basic and essential part of riding gear that every biker should have and should wear while riding two wheelers. It is also necessary to buy and wear a good quality helmet as they offer better protection than cheap helmets, especially in case of high speed crash.
AGV helmets have been around in the Indian market for a long time and have earned the reputation of producing good quality helmets.
A few of my friends have crash tested AGV helmets over the years (unfortunately), including a head on collision with a jeep (both vehicles were at 100kmph) and have lived to tell the tale, thanks in no small part to the crash worthiness of their AGV helmets.
Since majority of AGV helmets sold in India have same outer shell, one can be assured that they will get similar level of level protection.
AGV helmets comes with a scratch less good quality visors and although it is not immune to deep scratches, it doesn’t gets scratched that easily and is able to provide clear vision to the rider for a long time.
AGV FVS helmet also have removable liner, which can be easily removed and washed to maintain cleanliness.
Biggest short coming of AGV FVS helmet is the fact that it fogs up quite easily, even when the top and chin vents are fully open. This fact makes them tough to use in cold weather as one has to keep the visor slightly open to maintain visibility.
Apart from this, one really can’t find any other fault with this helmet and although there are several better looking Chinese made helmets available these days for the same price, their quality and availability of their visors in the long run can be an issue. Which in our view, makes AGV helmets quite a VFM proposition, if you are looking for a good quality and sturdy helmet.
