DIFFERENCES/IMPROVEMENTS COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS PRODUCT (AX-8):
• New internal padding with extra thickness for improved comfort and better stability during competition;
• New shape of the shell in the chin area which, together with a broader and softer bottom edge than before,
diminishes interference with any collar used and reduces the risk of injury from impact thanks to the
The AX-8 EVO is the new top of the range in fibre, destined for professional cross use, created on the basis of the AX-8
and further enhanced thanks to the cooperation with the AGV riders of the European Cross, Enduro and Supermotard
championships, like David Philippaerts, Deny Philippaerts, Gautier Paulin, Dawid Ciucci, Davide Gozzini, Maurizio
Magherini and Andrea Cervellin and of the American SuperCross championship, like Travis Pastrana and Davi Millsaps.
The AX-8 EVO consolidates the presence of AGV in the world of professional cross, thanks to a product with extremely
original design and top class technical features.
DESIGN The design is in pure AGV style, with an important family feeling in the design of the front vents and rear
extractors, reminiscent of those of the road range and of the MT-X. The helmet is very different from the other proposals
on the market today, thanks to a chin guard with an immediate aesthetic impact, characterised by a big steel grid to protect
the very aggressive front air vent an element which allows the AX-8 EVO to be instantly recognisable during races and
regardless of the helmet graphics and race conditions.
The AX-8 EVO is available with three outer shell measurements in sizes XXS to XXXL. The shell has SSL layers made of
Carbon fibre, Kevlar and fibreglass to keep the weight of the helmet down and guarantee maximum safety.
The built-in IVS is made up of channels made directly in the shell, guaranteeing a more effective airflow inside the
helmet and better aerodynamic performance. The air vents on the front, visor edge and chin guard allow a constant flow
of fresh air inside the helmet. The rear extractors eliminate the hot, humid air from inside the helmet through the EPS
The internal padding, with sanitising treatment and made of breathable Dri-Lex®, is completely removable and
washable, including the covering of the strap, so that the helmet, which undergoes extreme use, is always perfectly
hygienic. The new internal padding is also extra thick for improved comfort. For the same reason, in the visor area, the
fabric has been replaced with soft plastic covers which, in the event of off-road use, are easily washable with the aid of
a brush or a sponge. The internal padding of the visor opening area has been designed to offer a perfect fit, even when
wearing Cross goggles. Compared with that supplied with the previous version, the internal padding of the AX-8 Evo is
extra thick, for improved comfort and greater stability during competitive use.
The new shape of the shell in the chin area, together with a broader and softer bottom edge than before, diminishes
interference with any collar used and reduces the risk of injury from impact thanks to the “shock-absorber” function.
The chin air vent, which is easily removed without the use of tools and has dimensions designed to offer optimal air flow
and complete chin protection (in other helmets the rider’s chin pokes out of the profile of the helmet due to the reduced
height of the chin guard). Despite the large opening perceivable through the shape of the outer net, beneath it there is a
strong fibre structure which creates the best compromise between airflow and mechanical resistance. The chine air vent
of the AX-8 EVO can be swapped with that of the AX-8 Dual and the AX-8 Dual EVO. The peak with external aluminium is
easily adjusted thanks to the central plastic screw under the peak. The retention system has DD double ring closure. The
weight of the helmet is just 1,150 g (+/- 50 g) in size M.
