Arguably the first open-face fibreglass motorcycle helmet was invented by AGV back in 1954. But open-face helmets have advanced technology-wise just as any other type of helmet has since then, even though the humble open-face still looks pretty similar to those ones built over 60 years ago.
The AGV X70 is a testament to how far helmets, especially open-face style ones have come, it’s packed with everything you need for protection and performance, all in an old-school vintage-styled helmet that harks back to the cool motorcycle riding of the 60s. The helmet itself is made from a hard-wearing fibreglass shell, along with a multi-density EPS liner, that you can rely on, thanks to AGV’s experience developing some of the most protective helmets possible for the pros at the MotoGP. The X70 has a premium leather and suede interior that is super-comfortable and the interior can be removed and washed. And it features a set of 3 buttons on the forehead of the helmet for fitting a peak or face-shield if you want.
All AGV helmets sold by Infinity Motorcycle come with a minimum 2-year warranty.
Registering your helmet within the first 60 days of purchase will enable you with:
When you order a helmet online we can only accept a return when the helmet is unworn and HAS NOT been used out on the motorcycle. When you receive your helmet, please try it on for around an hour in the comfort of your home, do not go out on the motorcycle with it. If the helmet is too loose or is too tight, get in touch and we will help to provide a return.
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.
