Great helmet after 7,000 miles
I ride Honda CBR 1100 XX and I rode this helmet in every possible speed that Blackbird can. Overall great helmet. Pros: – Aerodynamics are more than excellent stable at any speed. – Ventilation is more than I need when I open all vents the breeze inside the helmet is awesome. Field of view is the best I’ve ever see on helmet so far compared to my previous helmets (Arai Vector,Shoe XR1100, HJC FG-ST, Schuberth S2).
This is the first helmet that in full tuck position I do not need to tilt my neck backwards to see the road. – Lightweight – after 4-5 hours ride I do not have any discomfort on neck as when I am wearing heavy lid on my head. Cons: – The helmet is on the loud side of the noise. In slow speed up to 100 km/h it is fine. But in party mode (highway speed 140-180 km/h) it is bad earplugs are the only thing that keeps me from pulling over and trow it in the ditch and it is getting even worse whey you have crosswind.
With crosswind and 150 km/h the motorcycle earplugs are not helping very much I got the feeling that the wind is drilling my brain out. I just have sensitive ears I guess. This is the biggest issue with this AGV for me. – The position of contact of the helmet is way up the forehead (not like most helmets on near eyebrows level) in the beginning was odd for me but I guess this is how AGV fits.
It is nice and comfortable the only problem for me is I have slim face and when i do speed 200 + km/h my nose is slightly touching the helmet , it is not pressure at all just the feeling is something that I don’t like. This is more than fitting issue I guess. Overall : noise in high speed is the only downside for the helmet and for long riding it can be problem. KGB, SportsBikeShop customer
I wanted to love this helmet
It’s AGV which means it’s always going to be good looking. But as I stated above I don’t “love” this helmet. I like it but that’s about it.
My two biggest gripes are it’s heavy and the cheek pads are too small so it moves all over the place, especially when head checking. To be fair, my other helmet is an HJC RPHA 11 Pro and it’s light as all get out so maybe it’s not fair for me to say it’s heavy. I would have given it three stars but it’s so good looking I had to go with four. Tim D, Revzilla customer
Nice helmet for the price
Picked this up on clearance. Coming from an RF1200. First impression out of the box was impressive. The graphics really pop and the finish was top notch. Fit is really nice and were no tight or loose spots for me. Just a nice fit. Noise level seems to be comparable to my Shoei which was pretty good. There is wind noise but not any more than any other helmet. There was no whistling or anything like that. Just wind.
Vision out of the pinlock shield is outstanding. And the pinlock insert worked as advertised. Absolutely no fogging.
There are a couple of small things I don’t like:
– The shield doesn’t ratchet. This will cause it to slam shut at speeds over 40 mph.
– The latch for the shield is literally right in the middle of the shield and thus right in your sight line. More of an annoyance than anything. And not really a fan of the latch mechanism. Can be hard to reach with gloves on.
Overall a very nice helmet. A great helmet for the $350 I paid for it. Michael C, RevZilla customer
