The latest edition to the AGV range is the K-1, a racing-developed helmet for everyday riding.

The K-1 shell design has an aerodynamic shape that includes an integrated rear spoiler and is wind tunnel tested to maximise performance and stability. The AGV K-1 is designed to offer a stable, snug fit without pressure and is designed to fit a larger range of riders than ever before. It features the extremely comfortable and moisture wicking dry-comfort fabric, and a helmet liner and cheek pads that are completely removable and washable. The cheek pads are designed to allow the arms of glasses or sunglasses to pass straight through to prevent any discomfort, and also easily accommodates rider communication systems. 5 large front vents and 2 rear extractors, all adjustable ensures maximum air flow. A full 190 degree field of vision, with anti-scratch and pinlock-ready visors that are quickly removable with no tools is a vital part of the K-1 package. There is a big range of designs, from solid colours to the VR46 replicas (shown) in sizes XS-XXL, priced from $279 to $349.
