AGV launched the new AX9 helmet across North America. With lightweight construction, four different configurations, improved ventilation, 190 degrees of horizontal vision and 110 degrees of vertical vision, the AX9 is the most versatile helmet available for riders who want to be ready for any adventure and long rides that take them through various on- and off-road conditions.
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.
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.
