AGV FVS helmet review

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.

  7. i have the same helmet but the visor is rubbing my helmet and my helmet is scratched, can anyone help me with this, is your helmet also being scratched from visor……yogesh..??

  8. hi guys i bought the same red dragon helmet 15 dyas back but the visor rubs against the helmet when i open or close it and my helmet and visor both gets scratched. do you people have the same problem. please help me out , what should i do, whom should i talk with for replacement or anything…….

  9. Rakesh you mean the top portion of the visor? If yes then it is normal and happens in all AGV helmets (at least the ones I have seen). It is not an issue, because the part of the visor which is getting scratched doesn’t comes in your field of vision.

  10. yes, its the top portion only, i thought my helmet is defective and wanted to go to the dealer and asking him to exchange the helmet……. if its normal then he would not agree and there would be no point in going to him the…. isn’t it..??

  11. Well all the people I know who have AGV helmets, suffer from this, however none have taken it back to the dealer. So you can try your luck, but do make sure that the dealer doesn’t tries to mess with the visor fitting to ensure it doesn’t gets rubbed again, else it might let in more air and make the visor unstable.

  12. i can try, but even if he replaces the new helmet would have the same problem, so i would waste my time, but anyway im leaving my zma for servicing this sunday, will just tell him a word about that……lets see what happens

    Hi Yogesh,

    I am having trouble finding helmet shops that can replace the visor on my AGV helmet. The OEM one is too scratched for rides now.

    Although I know you may not have sources in Hyderabad, I think it will be far easier for you to get the details from someone, compared to me.

    Please help!

    You can reply to this email or sms me the details on eight double zero eight nine three zero triple four.

    Thanks :)
