The AGV Horizon is a new offering from the Italian brand that enters the line-up as a replacement for the Stealth SV. This aggressively contoured helmet is notable for bringing together a combination of high-end features and an internal sunvisor at an affordable, mid-range price.

At a glance, the new Horizon cuts an aggressive profile that is visually striking. The aerodynamic shell is made of a new composite material that AGV calls Carbonglass. It is a mix of carbon and fiberglass provides mix of strength and lightness. The shell also has AGV’s IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) built into it like their top-end GP-Tech. Vents above the forehead allow air to enter the channels in the shell that move it quietly and efficiently throughout the helmet. These upper vents, combined with the intakes on the chin, and the plush, moisture-wicking Dri-Lex liner mean that the Horizon keeps your head feeling fresh as well as safe.

The eyeport of the AGV Horizon provides excellent horizontal and vertical visibility through the anti-fog, anti-scratch, and uv-resistant shield. This area is also home to the drop down internal sunvisor. The visor is fully retractable and easily rotates up into the shell when not needed. It is simple to adjust the visor using the switch behind the left shield basplate, even with a gloved hand. One feature that is unique to the Horizon and its sibling, the RidersDiscount.com. They include solid colors and two graphics called Racer and Absolute.

The AGV Horizon is shown here in the Absolute Italy color. The red switch behind the shield mechanism on the left side adjusts the internal sunvisor.


The Absolute Italy features an Italian flag motif, with red on the left...


... and green on the right side of the helmet.


The red tab on the side plate controls the drop down sun visor.




The colors of the Absolute Italy graphic compliment the AGV logo perfectly.


AGV’s Personalized Visor Mechanism means that you can customize the way the the shield ratchets by switching to the optional pieces shown. The blue pieces on the left provide the race setting that locks fully open or closed. The green pieces on the left provide the urban setting that lets you lock it at different intervals between open and closed.
