Helmet review: AGV GP-Tech

AGV GP-Tech helmet, £449.99
Miles covered/time:
3000/six months

What’s good? Awesome styling. I love those black flashes on the side which look like extensions of the visor, especially when a black visor is fitted.

I’ve got an oval-shaped head and often find apparently well-fitting helmets cause painful pressure points at the front and back after long distances – but I’ve had no such problem with this.

It’s got probably the neatest visor release system I’ve tried, it’s lightweight and it got the maximum five stars in the Government’s SHARP helmet tests.  

What’s not? On a recent ride in snow, I suffered from icy air blasts on my forehead which seemed undiminished by closing vents.

But it is a race lid. Despite its light weight, its exterior shell is relatively large. On a small frame like mine this creates a strange, foetal impression.

Rating: 4/5
