Are you a dual sport aficionado in search of a lightweight, high-performing helmet for your most ardent of endeavors? How about a street rider who doesn’t care about the drag of a visor peak on a dual sport helmet because it makes you look like a strait up intergalactic soldier of fortune? Well, either way, if you are one or the other, you are probably aware of the ADV AX-8 DS helmet. Ever since its inception it has been a huge attention getter, and for 2016 it is all about the new graphics.
Down and dirty, wild and free. That is the AGV AX-8 DS EVO Grunge Helmet. Living up to its name, this is a truly rugged graphic that would be best suited for the kind of rider who takes a difficult road ahead as a personal challenge. The kind who looks at the largest mountains, deepest valleys, widest gulfs, and most un-traversable landscapes as mere hindrances on their way to the desired destination. Sure, that mountain was there fifty-hundred-million years ago and has not moved since, but, if you are the kind of rider to look up at it and say “yo, you don’t gotta’ move, but you sure as sunflowers aren’t going to stand in my way!” then you are the kind of rider to rock an AX-8 DS EVO Grunge helmet.
Slightly less agitated in its demeanor, the AGV AX-8 DS EVO Karakum Helmet is a graphic based in contrast and the visual vibrancy that comes from it. With the majority of the helmet bathed in Grayscale, the highlighted color accents around the faceshield, peak, and in the AGV lettering really stands out. Also, it is Orange. Obviously we are fans of that choice. The Karakum AX-8 DS helmet is a great selection for riders who are looking to accentuate their visibility and overall style.
The AX-8 DS EVO helmet is a rockstar of the AGV lineup. For 2016, new graphics enter the mix to help it remain that way.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
