That is a sweet helmet.

I just found Pinlock this winter and it is the best thing ever!
It will be great over here for humid days. Possibly on early morning winter rides but should be handy. It’s such a comfy helmet. Got the pouches and indents for speakers and stuff. The GP visor lock system. It’s pretty cool.

Shoei Air GT II for me, best helmet I have ever owned.

View attachment 589007
A SHOEI RF-1200 saved my, um, bacon in 2014 when my head put a big dent in the car that turned left in front of me, then stopped. These days I use an ARAI DT-X as I like the head form better than the SHOEI. My only comment about AGV is the same as any other polycarbonate helmet, which is they cannot pass SNELL solvent test. Impact protection on them is excellent, however.

LS2 Carbon (for around town), and Airoh GP500 for the weekend. Both incredibly light and comfy.

On and there’s a new unused Indian Adventure helmet in a box somewhere...

Arai, Defiant X. Great helmet. Only issues are trying to get a sunscreen decal across the top of shield w/ the builtin vents. I think I have that figured out though. Apply with hairdryer, contour to fit and trim with sharp blade, The AGV looks good though, nice choice

Any helmet here in Australia must pass the Australian Design Standards. There are many other standards that will pass as well. DOT, I think there is a French one, I think snell needs to be with another approval not just on its own. As with most helmets your not supposed to put stickers on them or clean them with petroleum based products as this can degredate the shell composition. All helmets in Australia are only impact tested to 30klm/hour equivalent anyway. So, whether you buy a 1000 dollar helmet or a 300 dollar helmet they are all tested the same.
