AGV have introduced the new K-1 helmet, which shares a helmet profile with the entire AGV sport helmet range, developed from years of testing on the racetrack and will be available in Australia from $279 to $349 RRP, making for a great value lid.
Designed to limit impact and injury to collarbones during a crash, the K-1 shell design has an aerodynamic shape that includes an integrated rear spoiler inspired by the Pista GP-R Biplano spoiler and is wind tunnel tested to maximise performance and stability.
The K-1 takes this racing heritage and technology and combines it with helmet features designed for everyday use on the street for all day riding. This includes the AGV K-1 being designed to offer a stable, snug fit without pressure and is designed to fit a larger range of riders than ever before.
It features the comfortable and moisture wicking dry-comfort fabric, and a helmet liner and cheekpads that are completely removable and washable. Ensuring that all riders are catered for, the K-1 is also designed with the use of glasses or sunglasses in mind.
The helmet liner and cheekpads featuring spacing so that the arms of any glasses or sunglasses used pass right through to prevent any discomfort or pressure against the skin. The K1 also allows for the installation and use of rider communication systems.
Externally, the K-1 features a shell constructed of High Resistance Thermoplastic Resin, engineered in two sizes, and a four density EPS structure developed in four sizes to ensure a great fit and high levels of protection.
It also features an integrated ventilation system which includes five large front vents, and two rear extractors, with all air vents being adjustable, and the rear extractors integrated in to the rear spoiler. This ensures great airflow throughout the helmet, providing comfort even during long days in the saddle.
Field of vision and peripheral vision is a key design component of all AGV sport helmets, and the K-1 features a 190° field of vision, ensuring optimal vision at all times. All K-1 visors are anti-scratch and come PinLock ready, and there is also a full range of optional accessory visors available, with tinted, iridium blue, iridium gold and iridium silver visors available for purchase.
As part of the K-1 design, the visor features AGV’s micro opening system that allows for greater airflow in to the helmet. The finer details have not been missed either, with the new miniaturised, 40 per cent smaller visor mechanism which features intermediate opening steps, and allows for rapid visor changes without any tools.
Like all new AGV helmets, the K-1 was developed according to the AGV Extreme Standards protocol, a design method that enables improving the performance of the helmet in a measurable and demonstrable way in terms of protection against impact, peripheral vision, compact design, weight reduction, aerodynamics, ventilation and ergonomics.
With a large array of colours available from solids, through multi colour designs to the VR46 replicas, the AGV K-1 is available in sizes ranging from XS to XXL, and priced from $279 to $349 RRP. This makes for a helmet jam packed with features and offers fantastic value for money for Australian riders who choose to ride in AGV Helmets.
