agv helmets

anyone on here have one. i wear a large in every helmet and hear that they run 2 sizes small. im looking at getting a GP-TECH, the new 5 continents to be exact. all the reviews say buy 2 sizes up or you will be returning it. my friend will be buying it for me since hes over in switzerland so i only have one shot at this. if anyone on here does have one would it be to much to ask to let me try yours on so i can make a good choice as far as sizing goes. thank you guys for you time.

which agv was it. i think its more refering to the gp-tech since its supposed to be a "race" fit. so no chewing gum when riding. lol. i wear a large in kbc and suomy. but alot of people that have had the xr2 and ti-tech said 1 size up. not that this helmet will be my daily helmet but if i have it i want it to fit me in case i want to get married in it.

Have you tried some shops that carry them. I don't think cycle gear does but it would be worth a call. Mabye worth a trip to Motoliberty in Dallas/SanAntonio if noones got them hear to try on.... https://www.motoliberty.com/list_pro...11&SubCatID=15

no one really carries them around here. they are expensive and alot of people dont buy them. think im gonna have to use cycle gears return policy. they told me i could order it and if i didnt like it then i could return it but dont feel like waiting around for my money to go back into my account. never liked how that works

i saw some at on the border motorcycles on spencer and shaver. Pretty sure they carry them. I bought a small agv s-4 online not too long ago which is what i normally wear. It feels a little too tight. I should've definitely gotten a medium. I say buy one size up.

I have a L AGV, and a L HJC. The HJC is a little loose, and the AGV is about perfect. So, a little smaller than HJC, but not far off. I like the AGV, and was looking into getting another one......if I keep the bike.

I ordered mine from Cycle gear. I had it for quite a while. It was light and it felt like it had extra padding near the ears to make it more quiet. The only thing I did not like about it is that everyone of the tabs that you use to close the vents broke off. Not from hitting them. It was like the plastic got brittle and they would just snap off in my hand. The pads even started to come apart a little. The whole thing seemed kind of cheap when I compare it's quality and fit to my X11. I wear extra large in both brands. The Suomy and Arai's never fit me right. In my opinion, the AGV's don't have the great ventilation that the X11 has. Add the availability of replacement visors and cheek pads and it is just not worth it to have the AGV.

The only pic I can find of the one I had (on the right):

well i want an agv for the simple fact that its a specific rossi replica. if i buy it i want it to fit in case i do want to wear it out. i would get an x-11 because they fit me perfect but the graphics they have are complete . and i know the replacement parts are abundant. whats with all the companies using dragons and tribal designs anyway. but thank you for giving me your insight on the quality of the helmet.
