AGV have previously released a Marco Simoncelli replica helmet model in their GP-Tech range (which is now no longer made and has been superceded by the AGV Pista GP R), but they have now made this iconic design available in their bestselling AGV K-3 SV range.
This is a fitting tribute to the late Marco Simoncelli who is still greatly missed by race fans all over the world, and it is nice that AGV are making it available to all riders by releasing it in their entry level range at a price-point that is far more ‘inclusive’ than their premium models. You can usually get a K-3 SV for less than £200 / $260.
The design features Simoncelli’s classic race helmet graphics that he raced in during his 250cc and MotoGP years. Originally created by Aldo Drudi the design features a white base with two red stripes running from the chin all the way to the back of the helmet. The base of the helmet has a leopard skin pattern that runs around it and the rear of the helmet has Simoncelli’s leopard logo. Classic, iconic, and now sadly missed on track.
The AGV K-3 SV is a fantastic everyday helmet – this is not a helmet that you would take on the track, even though many of the features and the shape have been influenced by AGV’s top range race helmets. This is built as a solid everyday road helmet and it comes packed with features, including a built in sun-visor that can be easily operated without needing to stop your motorcycle.
AGV have developed the K-3 SV motorcycle helmet with the experience they gained during the design process of their premium Pista GP helmets, and the Corsa and GT Veloce helmets. Thanks to the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEM), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. The K3-SV is a very popular helmet and its wide appeal has ensured that it is AGV’s bestselling helmet by a long way. The AGV K-3 SV is suitable for all riders who are looking for comfort coupled with high performance characteristics. The K-3 SV is ideal for everyday riders who are looking for a aggressive looking helmet without compromising on comfort and practicality.
The K3 is AGV’s entry level full face helmet and is designed to offer a rider on a budget the experience of owning a premium product. The AGV K3 has a very high specification and is packed with features such as a quick release micro-metric buckle and a clear, anti-scratch & anti-fog polycarbonate Street 8 visor.
The AGV K-3 SV also comes with a wide selection of race replica designs which means riders can pick up a stunning looking race design at a reasonable everyday price. What’s not to love?
Thanks to Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis and wind tunnel testing, the integrated ventilation system provides maximum airflow to the head (through three front vents, chin vent, side vents, and two extractors at the back of the helmet), and the aerodynamics minimize drag, lift and noise, and ensure stability even at racetrack speeds.
