AGV K6 - Hyphen
AGV has developed their newest iteration of the K-Series to be “…the best helmet for any use”, introducing the brand new for 2020, AGV K6.
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.
Even with the heavy level of protection that the K6 is packed with, the helmet has a super-lightweight design. The smallest shell size comes in at just 1,220 grams, an incredible lightweight that helps to reduce tiredness in your neck and limit strain. But not just that the K6 has a neutral dynamic weight that means the bulk helmet is not felt on your head.
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 greatly improving the comfort of your ride.
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. A model-specific mounting kit will be required to fit the ARK to the K6 which will be available separately. The ARK Intercom retails at £249.99 and the K6 Specific mounting kit will be a further £14.99.

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.
