AGV don’t always produce exact Valentino Rossi race replica helmets, sometimes they release ‘Rossi inspired’ helmets…..but it has been a while since they have done one like this. This is the AGV K3 SV Bollo 46 helmet that takes Vale’s famous ’46’ as inspiration for a simple and classy looking helmet design.
The AGV K3 SV is bascially AGV’s entry level helmet in their range, however to be honest this helmet comes loaded with features that you’d expect on higher priced helmets, so to call it ‘entry level’ is a bit unfair. The AGV K3 SV is their update to their previous best-selling K3 range and the new version adds a load of new practical features like an internal sun-visor (hence the ‘SV’ in the name), as well as a new shape, a new shell, a new interior….you name it, it’s all new.
The design features a jet black base with a large ’46’ on either side of the helmet in a yellow circle. The ‘VR46’ logo is also featured on either side of the chin and also on the top of the helmet. A simple but striking design.
The AGV K3 SV is also the cheapest way to get an official Valentino Rossi helmet and they usually retail at under the $300 / £250 price point (depending on the model and design), but if you shop around you can get them for less.
Product Description of the AGV K3 SV Bollo 46 helmet:
The K-3 SV was developed from the experience AGV gained during the design process of the Pista GP and Corsa helmets.
Thanks to the use of FEM (Finite Element Analysis), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. This helmet has a wide appeal and is suitable for young riders with a passion for racing as well as for more mature riders looking for comfort and high performance characteristics. The modern aerodynamic design of the shell has the same characteristics as the most recent AGV models.
An aerodynamic shell shape is optimized for stability and aggressive aesthetics and features an integrated, compact rear spoiler to reduce turbulence. The narrow chin bar is streamlined to help the helmet cut through the wind at high speeds, further increasing stability. The AGV K3 SV helmet incorporates a drop-down sun visor, making the helmet a tour de force, aggressive street or touring helmet. The K3 is also communication-ready and features speaker pocket cut outs to minimize discomfort caused by Bluetooth speakers pressing into your ears. The AGV K-3 SV Helmet is an excellent choice for any rider who values sophisticated, modern design in a safe and feature-rich package.
- SHELL HIR-TH (High Resistant ThermoPlastic Resin) outer shell. The K-3 SV is available in XS to XXL sizes with two differing outer shell sizes.
- VENTILATION The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) was designed using CFD analysis and features ducts hollowed into the shell for improved air circulation inside the helmet and better aerodynamic efficiency. Two front air vents at the sides work with a new larger central vent to provide a constant flow of cool air inside the helmet. The rear extractors use ducts hollowed into the EPS to remove hot, moist air from inside the helmet.
- VISOR The new GT 2 visor has been treated as standard with special scratch resistant and anti-fog processes. It also offers 100% protection against UV rays. The new visor edge on this model offers a better seal and protection from draughts and noise. The visor also features a new micro-opening system which is easily operated from a button on the chin guard. The K-3 SV also comes with an anti-fog, scratch-resistant, tinted, internal sun visor that can be removed for cleaning and replacement without the use of tools.
- INNER LINERS The inner liners can be removed and washed and are made from a sanitised Dry-Comfort fabric to prevent the formation of bacteria and the onset of allergies. This fabric contributes to the rapid dispersal of dampness from the skin, the absorption of excess sweat and ensures the rider stays fresh even over long periods of time.
- FUNCTIONALITY/SAFETY The mechanism for opening and closing the visor has three customisable settings according to helmet use (Touring, Race and City) and features the XQRS system for quick removal. The retention system has a Double-D ring and an anti-theft ring. The K-3 SV comes ready for connection with the new SHARE communication platform.
