The AX-8 Dual Evo is an extremely versatile helmet that is ideally suited for both on and off-road use. Its design resembles the AX-8 Evo motocross version on which it was modelled. Thanks however to additional technical features such as the visor and its special opening mechanism, the open/shut chin air vent and extra ventilation on the top, this helmet provides the same superb performance and comfort as a road helmet.
The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) features ducts hollowed into the shell for improved air circulation inside the helmet.
The sanitized, breathable Dri-Lex® internal components can be removed and washed as can the retention strap cover. Soft Plastic covers are used in the visor area instead of fabric as unlike fabric, they don't get soggy and are easily washed.
The chin air vent is easily removed without the need for tools and ensures an optimal flow of air. The retention system is Double D.
The helmet weighs just 1500 g (+/- 50 g) (refers to M size in the ECE 2205 version).

This is my first AGV helmet; I have another enduro helmet and a standard full-face. The helmet fits perfectly (got an L which I thought was a bit loose at the beginning but actually fits my head shape perfectly - after breaking in it sits snug -, and I always wear a windproof balaclava. Since I live in cold Norway wind protection is a priority for me, followed by visibility, soundproofing and material quality.
Wind protection is excellent, I don't feel draft in the helmet as in the other 2, ventilation is great and the chin curtain is also great in keeping my face warm. Visibility is great because of the large visor, though I wish it came with a tinted version.
The soundproofing though is a really weak spot (didn't have high expectations since enduro helmets are quite noisy) but this one has a permanent high noise when I ride at more than 30kph which I suspect is because of the shape and gaps between the lining parts, but the really disturbing noise is a permanent whistling that becomes louder as speed increases and head position changes; I've tried closing all the vents and changing my head position but the whistling is still present; I have to wear earplugs to keep the noise stress down. For a helmet that costs this much I had better expectations, and the reasons I got this brand are the internal shape and visor size.
The material quality is very good for the lining, visor and shell; the problem is that my face shield (peak, whatever it's called) broke first time I put the helmet on it.
