The K3 SV Helmet is a staple of the AGV lineup, and for good reason. It is light, quiet, and affordable. It also takes design principles that AGV gleaned from the development of high-end race helmets and evolved them for use on the street. For 2016, they have introduced a ton of new graphics to augment the lineup and provide stylistic options for riders with a variety of tastes.
If you are a fan of Valentino Rossi (and why wouldn’t you be?), then you will probably enjoy the new AGV K3 SV Five Continents Helmet. In true Rossi fashion, it is loud, it is roccus, and it is totally awesome! High-energy, good ol’ Italian fun is what number 46 is known for, and it permeates every facet of his race day gear. With the K3 SV Five Continents riders will get that signature Valentino swagger with the Mediterranean-themed sunshine prominently featured right over the front of the helmet and its various rays emanating from there. It’s the kind of helmet that just makes you want to go to the beach, on your motorcycle of course.
Again, those Rossi fans will be happy with the new AGV K3 SV Dreamtime Helmet. Sticking with the well-known aesthetic of the world’s greatest motorcycle racer (ever), the Dreamtime graphic features a mosaic-style sun / moon combination on either side of the helmet. It is a fitting graphic, for Rossi owns the track sunrise to sunset, and every bit in between. It’s kind of the same way that you own the road. You and Valentino, just rocking out with the K-3 Dreamtime helmet. Sounds like a plan.
Unlike the first two helmets, the next on the list is new to the game. It is not based on the most legendary racer in the history of two wheels. It is not as well-known. It is not as traveled. It is not a staple of the industry, yet. The aptly titled AGV K3 SV Rookie Helmet is, however, ready to make a name for itself on the roadways of America, just as its more established brothers in the AGV graphic world have done for themselves. The Rookie graphic is a wild, vicious, bottomless-ly hungry version of the AGV K3 SV.
Well, there you have it. Three great new graphics to the K3 SV lineup from AGV. Each with its own history (or lack-there-of), and each with its own trajectory to follow hereaftere.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
