AGV K5-S - Tornado
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.

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.
