The AGV K5-S is designed to be the well-respected brand’s mid-range sports-touring helmet, with a price range under £300 but still packed full of AGV’s MotoGP tested tech to make it super high-performing, comfortable and above all protective.
The shell of the K5-S is a mix of Carbon and fibreglass that delivers a light-weight allowing for greater comfort, especially useful when you plan on riding for a few hours at a time that you expect when touring. The shell also incorporates a wind tested spoiler, hence the “S”, that gives greater aerodynamic performance meaning less wind buffeting and wobble to your head while riding. The K5-S has been through a hell of a lot of wind-testing by AGV to get the Integrated Ventilation System as top-notch as possible; this ventilation system uses two chin vents, two brow vents and a crown vent to channel cool air into the helmet while a rear exhaust vent flushes the air out before the helmet can start getting uncomfortable. All vents have open and close switches designed for use while wearing gloves.
The AGV K5-S is a brilliant choice for any rider who needs something that favours a bit more comfort rather than sportiness. With a middle of the road price tag of under £300, the K5-S is a good choice for anyone looking to get their first mid-range helmet with a touring focus.
All AGV helmets sold by Infinity Motorcycle come with a minimum 2-year warranty.

Circumference Measurement: Wrap a measuring tape around your head starting from the centre of your forehead. Measure about an inch above your eyebrows and hold tape comfortably snug. Take the length and complete again for good measure. Use the largest of the two readings.

A.G.V. is an acronym that stands for Amisano Gino Valenza. Gino Amisano is the founder of the company, Valenza Po the city in which AGV came to life in 1947. The logo is nothing other than "Ago"'s helmet as seen from behind.
Or rather, the way so many riders would see it while being beaten by the Italian champion. The colours are those of the Italian flag, as to confirm AGV's great pride of its connection to its homeland. After a few modifications throughout its lifetime, the brand continues to win while being worn by great champions, like Valentino Rossi.
The 3D laser scanning, instead of designing helmets around the outer shell, the AGV standards start with the riders head, which is measured digitally using laser scanning technology. Three-dimensional scanning is a highly-precise technology (to a tenth of a millimetre) that allows one to convert anthropomorphic shapes into digital data and then carry out accurate research on the human physiognomy. This research then becomes the starting point for designing the parts of the helmet which are in contact with the face.
Being part of the larger AGV “Extreme Standards Helmets” family, the Pista GP is now listed among the 331 safest helmets in the world.
The 5 Sharp Stars are defined by the English Department of Transport, and are the highest mark achievable in terms of safety. Sharp assigns this important rating by means of an independent evaluation system, where helmets are subjected to safety criteria tests without involving the manufacturers. In fact, the English Department has confirmed that 50 lives per year could be saved by using helmets that received this type of recognition by Sharp.
The AGV Pista GP helmet obtained this important award thanks to the revolutionary “Extreme Standards Helmets” process, an innovative design system that defines new standards in terms of safety, ergonomics and comfort. Indeed, the Pista GP design process starts from the components that are directly in contact with the head and works outwards to the final shell.

A great helmet. Superb fit, looks good, excellent price.
I wanted a good SHARP rating (4 stars). This helmet's Gold ACU badge is a bonus. I bought the Large size to fit my 59 cm head and it's a great fit. Next, it is lightweight (1,350 gms) by comparison with my flip-up helmet. I like the visor opening detents. These enable the visor to latch at intermediate positions. Alternative detent mechanisms are also included in the box. The liner is very easy to remove allowing washing or replacement. Internal airflow very controllable via series of adjustable vent. Visor removal is simple and no tools are required (you need to detach to the visor to fit the Pinlock visor that comes as standard). Lastly, it also looks great. Niggles? 1. The internal visor is not dark enough to be useful. 2. The temple side vents are awkward to control. Overall this is a great helmet and represents great value for money.
Nice and light compared with my old one and I'm appreciating all the vents now the sun is out. Most of all I appreciated the service in the Southampton store making sure the fit was just right. Thanks guys!
Great helmet, looks awesome
Upgraded from a hjc fg17 to this, it looks so much better, better design and ventilation and overall better feel of the helmet. Really recommend this helmet to anyone not looking to spend 300+
Good looking and comfy with very wide view also up and down sides... veluree finish and as mine mat is a spot on, but maybe too vulnerable for scratches as the mat layer is very soft even though I would not get the glossy one. Different side blocks for different combination gives a many up and down blockages for the screen this is also very helpful for different purposes. Even small tooth at the bottom of the screen makes it is slightly opened for air circulation not being even noticeable. 5 different ventilations is something for long journeys or what it rain hard in a city traffic, never had anti fog installed in it. Also have an additional sunglass protector which I use as sometimes you just ride with no sunglasses. Place for the visit for example Antioch or reflective ones. It also has the side insert ready for installing glasses so if you have to wear the additional ones this is a spot on. Cleaning the mat surface is easy with no doubts.
Great helmet, good service
This helmet looks even better in person than it does in the photos, with nice vibrant colours and a shiny appearance. I was surprised when I opened the box as I ordered an XL and it was incredibly light, didn't believe it was my helmet being delivered at first. The pinlock visor it came with was quick and simple to fit after checking the instructions on how to do it. The helmet does not mist up now, it feels great and has all the features you need, at such a great price it's hard to turn this item down. The fit was a little tight out the box despite following the instructions on how best to measure your head, but this was only around the cheeks, in particular when I tried to talk, after removing the cheek inserts under the lovely foam pads it was a great fit and a helmet I'm sure will remain comfortable for even the longest rides. The delivery took a bit longer than expected, I ordered on a Friday and took 6 days to arrive.
