AGV Sportmodular Helmet
Editor Score: 91.5%
AGV set out to change the game with its new full-carbon modular helmet. The Italian company boasts that the Sportmodular is the world’s first modular helmet constructed entirely out of carbon fiber which makes it a modular that is lighter than plenty of other helmets on the market, not just other modulars.
I’ve spent thousands of miles wearing the AGV Sportmodular through varying climates and on plenty of different motorcycles, and the helmet’s practicality and versatility has caused me to keep grabbing it on my way out the door.
The AGV Sportmodular is light. In fact, it’s the lightest helmet in my gear closet, weighing in at 3-pounds 2.6-ounces (1434 grams) for my medium. AGV uses three shell sizes for the Sportmodular with XS and S using the smallest, M and L using the next, and XL-XXXL fitting into the largest shell size. Within those three shells are four different size EPS liners, ensuring an optimum fit for sizes XS-XXXL.

The light nature of this carbon helmet is really the big story here. Historically, modular helmets tend to be some of the heaviest simply due to their more complex design. I haven’t weighed the AGV Numo or Miglia, the company’s previous modular models, but they both felt extremely heavy just grabbing one off the shelf, which makes the Sportmodular even more impressive and an important model for the brand.
