AGV Sport Modular Helmet available from $899
The AGV Sport Modular helmet combines 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 MotoGP’s Pista GP R in an incredibly light weight construction, combining the highest levels of comfort and safety.
The shell in 100 per cent carbon fibre is engineered in three sizes with a five-density EPS structure developed in four sizes. This structure offers an extremely safe and compact helmet at an incredibly light weight, ensuring protection is maximised, despite the modular design.
The chin guard is likewise 100 per cent carbon fibre engineered to guarantee minimum weight and great balance even in the open configuration, where more wind resistance will be experienced.
The shell shape is also designed to minimise the risk of impact energies being channeled to the collar bone, while a metal chin guard opening system is designed to prevent accidental openings.
The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) ventilation features a large front vent, a chin guard vent and a rear extractor hollowed in the shell which direct air to the rider’s head without interference with the internal sun visor. Internal chin channels distribute the air flow evenly through the entire visor surface, helping reduce fogging and clearing the helmet as quickly as possible.
Don Nicholas, Apparel Division Manager of Link International introduced the helmet saying, “We are really excited about the new AGV Sport Modular. This is a real game changer for Australian riders, with AGV making a modular helmet in 100 per cent carbon fibre with the protection of our Pista GPR. Combining all of the best features of a sporty helmet and the most important features of a modular helmet, it really gives sport and touring riders a fantastic chance to experience riding in an AGV helmet. We look forward to many happy riders experiencing the comfort, style, lightweight and safety of the new Sportmodular.”
