Let’s face it, when it comes to biking, less drag means more speed and agility, meaning more fun. This AGV AX-8 EVO Naked Helmet, the street version of the AX-8 DS EVO follows this rule of thumb. And as the “naked” version, the peak of the helmet is removed, which greatly eliminates any unnecessary drag.
The EVO Naked features internal padding with increased thickness for heightened comfort and greater stability since of course you won’t wear this motorcycle helmet unless you’re out chewing up the asphalt. The shape of the outer shell, combined with a wide and softer base edge also limits interference with any back protector you may be wearing, thus decreasing the risk of impact traumas. Each helmet’s exterior is made up of SSL (super super light) carbon, Kevlar, and a fiberglass shell construction that comes in at an ultra lightweight 3 pounds (3 lb 1.2 ounces to be exact). An Integrated Ventilation System also keeps air circulating through the piece, and a flat face shield is built from non-scratch, anti-fog polycarbonate material. Just another example of how far we’ve come in the motorcycle helmet technology. Available now for $380. [Purchase]
