AGV says “the revolutionary SportModular…(is) combining the practicality of a modular helmet with lightness” (it’s just 3.06 pounds, 1,388kg, depending on shell size). In this category, its natural competitors are the recently released Shoei Neotec II and Schuberth C4—retailing for $699 and $749, respectively (for the base models), and I’d argue the SportModular is easily the lightest of the three. If you’re a distance-riding junkie like we are, that means a lot. With the SportModular excelling in aerodynamics, ergonomics, ventilation, and field of view, it slots very favorably into this class, and we’re looking forward to spending the next month with it on tour. Stay tuned for updates.
