AGV K5: Overview

AGV's new road helmet and Share Communication System


AGV is one of Europe's most respected motorcycle protection brands, and for good reason. Providing legendary protection to riders for years and constantly upping the ante with high-style aggressive helmets like this one and the AGV AX-8 Evo Naked, which we had the pleasure of reviewing earlier this year.

They pulled out all of the stops and implemented all of the newest technology with this helmet, which hits the market with a mid-range price of $349.95 for the solid colors and $399.95 for the graphics. The helmet fit very comfortably without any pressure points, is lightweight and quiet at speed. The K5 carries itself like a much more expensive helmet and the Share system follows in suit.

The Share Connective System fit into the K5 in a matter of minutes, as they were designed to work together. There are two small pads in the front of the helmet that pop out to fit the battery and the microphone/ brains of the operation. After snapping the lining of the helmet back in and pairing my phone up (effortlessly, I might add) I was on the freeway listening to my music loud and clear in this stylish and aggressive new AGV helmet.
