Opinions on a AGV helmet

Ive owned 2 shoeis, wore a kbr before as well........im about to buy a new helmet....my current shoei one is falling apart ( but still comfortable , lol)

I was thinking of getting an AGV helmet, i like their designs.......anyone who has had one,, are they comfortable, are they as comfortable as a shoei and arai..... just wondering, i went to a couple of places around houston but no one carried them... im gonna order off of ebay.....so any opinions would be appreciated , thanks

Best helmet I've ever owned , my Arai was light, good fit but noisy, my current Shoei is quiet but not as snug a fit.
Will go AGV again next time around for sure.
I think head shape makes all the difference though when buying a helmet so try a few on first.

I have an AGV TiTech. Light, vents extremely well. My only thing about AGV is the lack of a decent dealer network to try on. I am not 100% sure but I don't recall seeing any AGV helmets at Honda of Houston, they might be able to order them, but in stock is another issue. Their face sheilds aren't cheap either but I've got the race shield that has the tear off posts on it so that's a bit more $$ than the standard ones. Overall I like the AGV. Arai would be my next choice.

I've used a quite of few different brands over the years. I bought an AGV while I was in Georgia because I got a great deal. I've worn AGV's ever since, it's the best helmet for the money. It's hard to find a dealer in the area, but it sounds like a lot of you only use them for dressing rooms anyway.

My last three helmets have been agv's. I am currently looking to replace mine with another one (stealth) within the next couple days. I have owned most of the major brands besides Shark and keep going back to AGV.
