Retro-styled motorcycle helmet launches in Australia.
Link International, the Australian distributor of AGV, has announced the release of the retro-styled X3000 helmet, which replicates the helmet worn by grand prix legend Giacomo Agostini.
Incorporating the latest materials and premium linings, AGV draws inspiration from these iconic riders and helmet designs to present helmets that are truly modern in terms of ride experience, safety and comfort.
The AGV Legends range perfectly replicates the original design, reproducing the profile of the original helmet characterised by a low chin guard with a tapered bottom, a detail specifically requested by Agostini in the original helmet design, allowing ‘Ago’ to be comfortable in a tuck position and give him the ability to lie on the tank as if there was no chin guard.
Staying true to the classic design is the is the visor and mechanism, but both do not compromise current functionality and safety standards. The visor thickness ensures clear vision whilst providing high levels of protection, and also incorporates a ventilation system that does not impact on the clean lines of the shell yet provides a level of comfort in line with current helmet standards.
2018 AGV X3000 helmet key features:
– Shell in fibreglass, engineered in three sizes with EPS structure developed in three sizes.
– Visor on-off air vent with channels hollowed in the shell.
– Premium interiors with genuine leather, suede fabric and embroidered logo.
– Fully removable and washable interiors (neck roll excluded).
– Anti-scratch visor with micro-opening system.
Pricing ranges from RRP $599 for basic colours, while replica and special edition designs are priced up to $999. For more information, visit www.agvhelmets.com.au.
