The AGV AX-9 Helmet is the Italian company’s latest adventure helmet for riders who don’t stop when the pavement does.
Begin Press Release:
Together with the SPORTMODULAR helmet, the AX9 completes AGV’s touring range. The AX9 is designed for long trips, offering top-of-the-line comfort with its premium-quality interior and advanced ventilation system. With its lightweight fiber composite shell, built with Carbon + Aramid + Fiberglass, the AX9 weighs in at just 3.5 pounds (1,605 grams +\- 50g depending on shell size and accessories added), making it one of the lightest helmets in its segment while also meeting AGV’s highest safety standards.
Offering configurations with or without a super panoramic visor, with or without the adjustable peak – or a combination of visor and peak – the AX9 is designed to perform in any riding scenario and offer customization during a ride to meet specific needs.
The AX9 also reaches new standards in aerodynamics and ventilation, with new extractors and the adjustable chin guard port that directs internal air flow to where the rider desires. All AX9 vents are adjustable. Premium interior padding offers extreme comfort, with moisture-wicking cheek pads and top liner, and a water-resistant neckroll that prevents water from channeling inside the helmet.
“We’re extremely proud of how far innovation has come with the AX9’s interchangeable features, comfort and safety,” said Roberto Sadowsky, Executive Vice President, Dainese & AGV North America. “With the combination of the SPORTMODULAR and AX9, AGV now offers two flagship, game-changing helmets that meet different needs for touring and adventure enthusiasts.”
AX9 Technical Features:
The AX9 is available in seven different designs and starts at $499. The helmet is a perfect complement to Dainese’s new Explorer line of adventure touring gear, launched earlier this year, specifically the Antartica, designed for riding in extreme conditions and integrating research from Dainese’s work on a Biosuit for the Mission to Mars 2030.
