The K5 is a super helmet and a real addition to the AGV range. The features and fibre shell make it a top choice - AGV UK
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 31 October 2014
Italian helmet super-brand AGV are launching a new helmet model, the K5, in 2015. This radical design was shown exclusively to Firecrest Motorcycle Outfitters, one the UK’s fastest growing motorcycle clothing retailers last week at Motodirect, the home of AGV in Great Britain.
AGV was founded in Italy by Gino Amisano, in 1947. The company name AGV came from Gino’s own initials, plus his home town of Valanza Po, and the AGV logo echoes another Italian household name, the famous motorcycle racer Giacomo Agostini. AGV say that their instantly recognisable helmet logo with its bold ‘Italia’ flag is what other racers saw on track…the back of Agostini’s head! Today the brand is worn by probably the most famous of all motorcycle riders, and a force in European motorsport, Valentino Rossi.
The AGV K5 is an evolution of the extremely popular K3 SV, and is one of the most competitively priced motorcycle helmets on the market, and is expected to start at £199.99 for plain colours and £219.99 for graphics.
Taking inspiration from the top of the range Pista GP worn by Rossi, Bradl and Espargaro in MotoGP, and Guy Martin in the world famous Isle of Man TT, the new K5 has a reshaped, integrated spoiler for increased aerodynamic performance, an easy to use dropdown sun visor, and an anti-fog Pinlock included as standard.
The K5 has a fibre composite shell, composed of various carbon, aramid, natural and glass fibres, built to withstand impact and dissipate force. Taking over from where the AGV Horizon left off, the K5 has a more streamlined, Venturi optimised silhouette.
The graphic patterns available in the UK include the Roadracer and Hurricane, both pictured, and the still to be announced Drift. The K5 is the latest in a long line of attractive sports derived helmets for AGV, and is sure to be a roaring success.
