This is the latest Guy Martin replica helmet for 2016 that is being made available in the very affordable AGV K5 range.
The design is cheekily called ‘3some’, but in reality it only refers to the three main colours of blue, fuschia and yellow that feature on the helmet.
And it has to be said that the three colours go really well together and make a beautiful looking helmet, especially when combined with the AGV K5’s aggressive lines. The top of helmet is covered in the metallic blue and features four small fuschia coloured stars. The helmet then blends into a bright fuschia stripe that runs around the sides, before fading into yellow at the base. The sides of the helmet also include Guy Martin’s famous ‘skull and spanners’ logo.
This is a very attractive looking race replica.
Released in the AGV K5 range, this is also an affordable race replica coming in hundreds of pounds / dollars cheaper than the official replicas in the more premium AGV ranges like the Corsa or the Pista GP.
The K5 is designed as a ‘sports-touring’ helmet, which is basically shorthand for an ‘all-rounder’ – this is an appropriate helmet for day to day road use for upright motorcycles, but it can also hold its own at high speed on sportsbikes.
One of the unique features of the K5 is that is created from a carbon fiber composite shell, this makes it a very light helmet, lighter than most of the competitor helmets in a similar price range. It also comes with an internal sun visor, a great feature for the average everyday biker.
The K5 has also adopted the curved arch across the bottom of the helmet which you see on the premium AGV models – this enhances the aggressive appearance and lines of the helmet, but is actually a safety feature that reduces the risk of you damaging your collar-bone should you be unlucky enough to come off your bike.
