AGV T-2 Helmet Review

AGV T-2 Agostini Helmet
Built on the shoulders of the technologies used in AGV's pro-level race helmet (the GP Tech) worn by Valentino Rossi and Marco Simoncelli, the AGV T-2 Helmet uses a slightly less exotic shell construction but retains most of the GP Tech's features. The ventilation, aerodynamics and stability are superb, and the Italian quality seen in the rest of AGV Helmets' line can easily be seen in the T-2. Designed for the aggressive street rider, spirited trackday enthusiast, the AGV T-2 Helmet is an excellent choice in its price range and has received nothing but positive feedback from our riding community.

Check out our AGV T-2 Helmet Review:



AGV T-2 Shade Helmet
Starting with the shell, the T-2 uses AGV's weave of carbon fiber, kevlar and fiberglass. The result is a helmet that is extremely resilient to impacts but also very lightweight. The protective EPS layer is double density for shock protection. The shell comes in three sizes and the EPS comes in four sizes, so you can be assured that whatever size you need won't simply be their stock helmet model with larger or smaller cheek padding. These helmets fit extremely well for the intermediate oval head shape. The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) is used here, which incorporates large channels into the helmet that are hollowed directly through the EPS for top-notch airflow. The chin and top intakes feed air into this system that can then exit via the four exhausts.

AGV T-2 Nieto Helmet
The T-2 Helmet uses the exact same shield and shield-change mechanism as the pro-level GP Tech lid. The Racer-X shield is anti-scratch and anti-fog, featuring tear-off posts which allows the use of tear-offs, a critical feature for any serious trackday rider or racer. The shield also utilizes the XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) which is an extraordinarily simple shield change mechanism that requires no tools and allows shield swaps to be completed in a matter of seconds. The T-2 has a removable chin curtain and breath guard and uses a double d-ring chin strap system. Inside, the Coolmax cheekpads, neck roll and comfort liner are comfortable, moisture-wicking and completely removable and washable.

AGV T-2 Barry Sheene Helmet
The AGV T-2 Helmet is a great choice and it's currently on a crazy sale. It is DOT and ECE certified, and primed to be your high-performance street and track lid. Multiple solids and graphics are available, and a full range of colored shields are also available. We're huge fans of this helmet.
