We are often asked what the best motorcycle helmet is for beginners. This is a strange question when you think about it. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or expert rider, you will want the best protection you can get within your budget. You don’t need better head protection when you get better at riding. Hitting an immovable object whether you are riding a 300cc bike vs a 900cc bike will have the same effect on you.
When selecting a helmet, your main criteria should be its ability to disperse impact. Yet, we all know that styling is what we tend to lead with. The look of a helmet adds to your character as a rider and the latest release by AGV, the AX-8 Evo Naked Road Helmet, delivers this in style whether you are a beginner or a motorcycle enthusiast who’s been riding for years.
What’s the helmet made of?
The shell is designed with 3 different materials – Carbon, Kevlar and Fiberglass. This means that the AX-8 Evo Naked is not only a lightweight (3.37 lbs/1.53 kg) helmet, but is tough as well. In the event of a collision, the AX-8 Evo Naked Road Helmet does a fantastic job of displacing the impact away from your head.
The inner liner of the AX-8 Evo Naked is removable and washable so that you can keep it clean. It is made of moisture wicking Dry-Lex that allows you to ride without a sweaty face for hours. The adjustable face shield is a made of scratch-resistant, anti-fog polycarbonate.
How does the ventilation work?
This helmet features 4 front vents and 2 rear extractors to keep your head cool. Two vents are on the chin and two are on the forehead of the helmet. The two extractors at the rear draws the warm air out of the helmet.
While this isn’t quite in line with those looking for a cafe racer look, we have seen many Ducati Scrambler riders wearing this matte black helmet with the smoked out faceshield. The dark look makes you look like a badass – especially if you are a unicorn. Which is why we consider this to be one of the best motorcycle helmet you can buy today.
