It is nice when a helmet manufacturer brings out a helmet design from an up-and-coming rider as a replica and makes it available on the market at a reasonable price. And that is exacly what AGV have done with this Nicolo Bulega replica that is available now in their very affordable AGV K3-SV range.
This is the helmet design that Bulega wore for his 2015 Championship winning CEV Moto3 season, just before he moved to the Moto3 World Championship class with Valentino Rossi’s SKY Racing team.
The design was created by the famous Starline Designers studio in Italy and it is a colourful cartoon graphic that features a monkey on either side of the helmet gripping on to the handlebars while clenching a cylinder between its teeth.
Aside from the cartoon, the helmet has a black and yellow base and also features a speed gauge on the rear with the number 11 highlighted – a nod to his race number at the time. This is a fun and eye-catching helmet that is a little different to the usual Rossi and Lorenzo replicas that you see on the streets.
It is great to see AGV releasing a wider range of race replica graphics into their K3-SV range as it makes these great looking race designs available to those riders on a budget. Too often in the past motorcyclists have had to shell out a lot for expensive helmet models if they wanted some race replica graphics, but now many helmet manufacturers are making some available in their ‘everyday’ helmet ranges. The AGV K3-SV is AGV’s bestselling helmet due to its affordable price and solid feature set (not to mention the trusted brand name) and the new SV version adds a built-in sun visor.
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.
