2012 AGV Collection Debut at Dealer Expo

2012 AGV Motorcycle Helmet Collection

The 2012 Dealer Expo began today in Indianapolis, with the world’s biggest names in the motorcycle industry debuting their apparel and gear collections.

One of these companies is AGV, which unveiled its 2012 collection at the Indy DealerExpo. The company has released many new helmets for both on and off the road.

Following is a release from AGV, highlighting its new products.

New for 2012 Racing line is the AGV GRID helmet. The GRID features new internal padding with 3D construction and new skin friendly fabrics for improved comfort, richer and more stylish internal padding with new visor mechanism base for quieter and easier visor assembly and removal process.

The GRID combines the performance (weight, safety, aerodynamics, stability at high speeds) and aggressive lines of a typical racing helmet with the comfort of an on-road helmet, comprising easy fit, ventilation and practical use. MSRP starting at $399.95.

GP-Tech completes the Racing line with the new Elements: the same helmet used by Rossi in MotoGP. Plus the Limited Edition helmets wore by Rossi: latest already available is the Valentino’s Eye, the new for 2012 will be the Misanohelmet.

In the Street line, AGV introduces the new K-4 EVO: a dynamic system with air vents and rear extractors to enhance the ventilation, a two size fiberglass external shell in ACF (Advanced Composite Fibre), removable easy-to-wash internal padding in Dry-Comfort.

The K-4 EVO is the most balanced and versatile helmet in the AGV 2012 collection: suitable for motorbikes and scooters, it can be used in all condition, being ideal for sports, touring or city use. The K-4 EVO is the solution for those who want an attractive, safe, comfortable helmet with an excellent price/quality ratio. MSRP starting at $219.95.

For the City line AGV presents the new Cafe Racer RP60: the proposal of the AGV range dedicated to vintage style. Reflecting its tradition for iconic style that its riders have taken on the racetrack in the past, AGV updates the technical features to create a product for those in search of a helmet with the pure spirit of motorcycling.

The RP60 design reminds of the ones used in the ’50s and ‘60s characterized by a clean, rounded fibre shell. Each RP60 comes with a pair of goggle. MSRP starting at $179.95.

In the Off-road collection, the AX-8 EVO is the new top of the line helmet in fibre created on the basis of the AX-8 and further enhanced thanks to the cooperation with the AGV riders of the European Cross, Enduro and Amercian Supercross. The AX-8 EVO features new internal padding for an improved comfort and a new shape of the shell in the chin area that decreases risks of impact traumas, thanks to its “shock-absorber” function.

The AX-8 EVO is available with three outer shell measurements in sizes XXS-XXL. The shell has SSL layers made of Carbon fibre, Kevlar and fiberglass for a mix of light weight and maximum safety. The built in IVS channels made directly in the shell assure a more effective airflow inside the helmet and better aerodynamic performance while the new internal padding is extra thick for an improved comfort. MSRP starting at $349.49.

From the Off-road collection the AX-8 Dual EVO is the extremely versatile helmet designed for on and off-road use. This design and its line reflect the AX-8 EVOfrom which it derives. Thanks to additional technical characteristics, such as the visor and the specific visor mechanism, the opening air vent in the chin guard and an extra top vent, guarantee all the performance and comfort of a road helmet. It can be used in three different configurations: Supermotard/Trial, Motocross/Enduro and Streetfighter/Naked. MSRP starting at $399.95.
