The AGV K3 SV is an exciting addition to the street/road collection of AGV helmets.
This is a helmet to suit many riders: from the first time biker who wants a quality lid from the start, through to the more mature biker who is interested in balancing safety and performance on a budget. And, at such a sensible price, the AGV K3 SV really is an impressive lid.
The AGV K3 SV takes some of its "design DNA" from top-of-the-range AGVs such as the Pista GP and Corsa helmets, but by adapting the design and materials, AGV have produced this absolute winner of a helmet at a shadow of the price.
The outer shell of the AGV K3 SV is constructed using HIR-TH (High Resistance Thermoplastic Resin), which ensures both a strong outer structure to the helmet and a good balance of protection, weight and price. The inner EPS shell acts to absorb impact and, to make sure that protection stays high whatever helmet size you take, the AGV K3 SV has two different outer shell sizes and four different inner EPS shell sizes.
The ventilation system on the AGV K3 SV is quite extensive, too. With five front intake vents (three above the brow and two to the chin) and two extraction vents to the rear of the helmet, the AGV K3 SV delivers a consistent flow of cool air to your head whilst riding.
The small, integrated rear spoiler provides a smoother flow of air over the helmet, creating a more comfortable ride as the speed increases.
The AGV K3 SV also has a retractable internal sun visor - a feature which was not present on the K3 SV's predecessor, the standard AGV K3. For everyday riding, internal sun visors have become a necessary norm, and the AGV K3 SV meets this need with its easily operated, well positioned inner smoked visor. No need to wear sunglasses or a dark visor with this helmet! Coupled with the internal sun visor is the AGV GT 2 polycarbonate outer visor.
This anti-scratch, anti-fog clear visor also offers protection from UV rays, and is affixed to the helmet via AGV's impressive extra quick release visor mechanism.
This visor mechanism is seriously easy to operate, with the visor able to be removed and replaced in a matter of seconds, completely tool-free.
The visor mechanism is also customisable, to allow you a choice of visor positions - a clever design seen on AGV's GT/touring range of helmets.
Moreover, the peri-metric visor seal ensures that a tight seal is always maintained around the entirety of the visor, leading to fewer draughts and reduced wind noise.
The AGV K3 SV has a plush Dry Comfort interior, and with removable and washable inner padding you can keep your lid cleaner for longer.
Also removable is the breath deflector and chin curtain.
The AGV K3 SV is secured by way of a micro-metric fastening strap, combined with an anti-theft ring so that you can leave your helmet unattended, yet in relative safety.
Please note: coloured outer and inner visors are for illustration only.
This helmet will be supplied with a clear outer visor and dark tinted inner visor.
Alternative visors are available for purchase separately
