AGVisor – Clear to Dark Shield With Click of a Button

AGVisor - Clear to Dark Shield With Click of a ButtonHelmet visors that transition from clear to dark are nothing new, but AGV has reinvented the concept with its new AGVisor.

Using LCD technology, AGV’s transitional lens, which is used by nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi,  instantaneously changes between clear and dark with the simple click of a button, “ensuring optimum visibility for the wearer no matter the light conditions.”

Speaking of the AGVisor, AGV says “The LCD technology adheres perfectly to the visor, also performing an anti-fog function, and a reduced-edge design ensures that visibility is not impaired.”

The AGVisor uses a built-in, rechargeable battery, which takes two hours to fully charge. Once charged, it can be used in dark modes for 12 hours.

For situations when the battery’s charge has been depleted, an innovative fail-safe system allows the visor to return to clear mode, AGV says.

The ADVisor will be available international in April 2015, but U.S.A. riders have to wait until the homologation process has been completed.
