AGV - Sport Modular Helmet Review

Read story


The world’s first Sport Modular helmet: the performance of a full face helmet together with the comfort of a modular.

Entirely built in Carbon Fiber (shell and chin), this specific structure achieves the same protection performance of a MotoGP’s Pista GP R helmet in incredibly lightweight construction, combining the highest levels of comfort and safety. Designed to offer 190° horizontal view as the human eye capability, Sport Modular has been conceived in the wind tunnel for superior quietness, aero stability and ventilation.


This helmet is great, I first used it on this adventure and since then have switched from the AGV AX8 Dual Evo to using this as my daily helmet. It offers all the convenience and comfort of a sports helmet with a modular flip up chin. This feature comes in very handy in London, it is super comfortable, easy to put on and the main thing I love is the fact that I don't have to take my helmet off to unlock my iPhone or when going into a shop, I can flip it up.

The helmet can be a little bit noisier than a standard full face helmet, but only slightly, and the comfort more than makes up for this. I have the full Carbon version, and it looks even better in person, it a stunning helmet. I noticed after the AX8 that the mechanism to remove the visor is much improved and impressive on this helmet –  it is transparent with metal finishing and comes off very quickly with a pull on a little lever.

The Sport Modular also has a flip down sun visor, which eliminates the need for a break on another helmet and would be the only reason I would stick with the AX8 on sunny days. When it comes to sunset or sunrise, no helmet beak is going to help you, and you'll end up doing that weird head position where you're pointing your head down while looking forward (or at least that's what I ended up doing when I lost my sunglasses for the 3rd time this year)

And for the more romantic of you, it gives easy access for that goodbye kiss from your significant other
