AGV K6 - Hyphen
The new iteration of AGV’s super popular K Series, the K6 Hyphen improves greatly on the previous model’s protection, comfort and safety.
The AGV K6 has a premium carbon-aramid mix fibre shell, along with a five density EPS Liner, all to deliver a level of protection that a MotoGP professional racer would demand. The entire design of the helmet began with one key mission: to provide maximum and guarantee the safety of the wearer. With this mission, every feature was designed with protection in mind. The visor mechanisms on the helmet are incredibly small to maximise coverage of the EPS liner. Even with the heavy level of protection that the K6 is packed with, the helmet has a super-lightweight design.
The aerodynamics of the K6 has borrowed a lot from its older, more race-focused siblings like the Corsa R, to produce a shape that cuts through the air while you ride reducing wind buffeting and limiting turbulence on the helmet and so on your neck. This will greatly improve the comfort of your ride and AGV even says that you will “…feel the difference, in any situation” of this aerodynamic performance. The shape of the shell is also optimized for any riding position – so no matter if you prefer a tucked race position or a more relaxed seated position you will still benefit from the aerodynamic performance.
The interior of the helmet is made from specially selected materials to meet the comfort needs of the most extreme conditions – those faced by MotoGP’s riders. The liner is breathable and absorbent and acts fast to absorb sweat leaving your face dry thanks to the 2 Dry treatment on them. The cheek pads and crown pad are made from super soft Shalimar fabric. The interior padding is also treated with sanitized, antibacterial protection for even more comfort. The outer part of the interior liner is made from waterproof and wear-resistant Ritmo fabric alongside faux leather, so it can withstand some heavy usage and ride in poorer weather.
The ventilation of the AGV K6 is managed by the five large air vents on the outside of the helmet, all specifically positioned to maximize cool air into the helmet. The central air vent on the brow works alongside the two additional top air vents to flush the helmet with cool air that runs across your head cooling you. This is absolutely necessary for keeping you cool and at your best during a track day event - and just as important to keep you at your best on your commute or long tour ride. The chin then has a further two vents to allow even more cooling air into the helmet. The two rear extractor vents work to filter air out of the helmet reducing the helmet becoming stuffy and uncomfortable. And all of these vents are controlled by easy to use switches, designed especially for use whilst wearing bulky motorcycle gloves.
The AGV K6 is built for use with the brand-new ARK intercom meaning the intercom can be simply and easily fitted to the helmet. And this means the intercom will have a low-profile design that will not affect aerodynamic performance. A model-specific mounting kit will be required to fit the ARK to the K6 which will be available separately.
The K6 comes with AGV’s exclusive Ultravision visor which “guarantees a 190-degree horizontal field of vision” – this gives you incredible periphery vision and allows you the best view of the road possible. The visor also gives an 85-degree vertical vision. There is a choice of 5 opening levels if you need further venting. And you get a 120 Max Vision Pinlock in the box with the helmet.
The K6 has a super secure Double D Retention system strap and AGV’s patented Extra Quick Release System that provides even better peace of mind. The fit of the K6 is designed especially with glasses wearers in mind.

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.
