Starting from a “digital head” created with cutting-edge CAE/CAD digital mapping technology allowed AGV engineers to design the structural components as precisely as possible. This maximizes protection and minimizes material requirements, resulting in a helmet that’s lighter, more comfortable and safer than ever before. According to AGV, helmets built to Standards protocol reduce brain trauma risk by 48 percent and residual impact force by 36 percent compared to current ECE-prescribed limits. The improved design also allows the visor window area to be enlarged 9 percent and the field of vision to extend 15 degrees further upward. Meanwhile, air intakes have almost tripled in size and aerodynamic lift is reduced by 44 percent.
