AGV EXTREME STANDARDS
Revolutionary from the inside out
An innovative integrated design protocol that revolutionises the design process, allowing for a significant and demonstrable improvement in helmet performance in terms of its protection against impact, peripheral vision, compact design, reduced weight, aerodynamics, ventilation and ergonomics.
The innovative AGV Extreme Standards process raises the bar in terms of technology in helmet research and development, and represents a milestone in head protection systems.
AGV has set itself extremely high standards when it comes to the safety of its helmets.
The AGV Extreme Standards development protocol lays out production references that are stricter than homologation standards and ensures these are reached with tests, both virtual and in the laboratory. FEM analysis of the helmet’s structure simultaneously allows for a reduction in weight and an increased ability to absorb energy.
Extreme Standards Helmets apply a brand-new design process called “Human Engineering”. The result are shapes that are modeled on the surfaces of the human head, for helmets that are safer and have reduced external dimensions. Design starts with the rider’s head, the measurements of which are described in detail by a series of anthropometric indices, thanks also to the use of laser scans.
A helmet that fits the rider’s head correctly, without being too tight, and that has an efficient ventilation system, without being noisy, is a safer helmet, because it allows the rider to maintain focus while riding the bike.
FIELD OF VISION
The shape and size of the visor respond to precise ergonomic and performance-related needs.
This increase in upper visibility significantly improves active safety conditions and control when tucked in, without riders’ having to resort to tricks to shift the helmet up, such as pushing on the tank with their chin or stuffing the top part of the helmet.
Aerodynamics are verified with tests in the wind tunnel and optimized thanks to specific virtual simulation software (CFD Analysis: Computational Fluid Dynamics).
The rear spoiler, integrated into the structure of the shell, reduces turbulence and improves the CX (aerodynamic penetration coefficient).
The narrow, streamlined shape of the chin piece allows for greater aerodynamic penetration, increasing helmet stability and safety at high speed.
Following the principles of AGV Extreme Standards, the structures making up the helmet are designed to achieve the desired performance while minimizing size and weight.
The entire helmet is more compact and lightweight as a result. Weight optimization reduces neck muscle fatigue and allows the rider to maintain focus while riding the bike, whether on track or on the road.
A LIGHTER, SAFER HELMET
- Maximum lightness with an increased level of safety
- Premium materials for the shell
The ventilation system created as a result of CFD analysis (Computational Fluid Dynamics) comprises channels inserted directly inside the shell.
These ensure more efficient air flow inside the helmet as well as better aerodynamic performance.
The four comfort factors are:
- FEEL in reference to sensation on the skin
- HUMIDITY in reference to the rain and condensation that may enter the helmet
- PRESSURE in reference to fit
- TEMPERATURE in reference to the helmet’s inner climate
To optimize each individual element, we have used the highest quality materials and treatments. The result is:
- A lightweight structure
- Increased breathability
- An enveloping fit
- A reduction in noise
