We present the new AGV Veloce S, a sport helmet tourism that collects the sport essence of other AGV models in a design also thought to have a touring functionality.
Design and shell
The AGV Veloce S is a sport-tourism model that represents the evolution of the GT Veloce. Within the AGV range, it is located between the Corsa R and the K-5 S. While the K-5 S is a touristy helmet with a sporty touch, the Veloce S is more like a sports helmet adapted to a touring use.

The shell has lines more rounded than the Corsa R, but sharing the same materials: a combination of carbon fiber, aramid and glass. The interior EPS is five different densities, so we have a combination of multifibre shell and EPS capable of offering high resistance and shock absorption.
The total weight of the set is very light, with 1350 grams for a MS size. The Veloce S is available from the XS to the XL with four outer shell sizes and four interior sizes for the best fit possible.
Ventilation and screen
The ventilation is formed by a double entrance in the chin and a triple frontal, just above the screen. All these inputs are adjustable. The air circulates through the bonnet to the rear area, where there are two non-adjustable exits, reinforcing the sport style of the helmet.

As with many AGV helmets, the screen offers a wide field of view and anti-glare treatment. It is the Race 2 model, which has Pinlock anti-fog sheet supports and even tear-off sheets and quick change system, without tools.
The AGV Veloce S screen is wide and has supports for Pinlock and tear-off.
Another feature of the screen is its VLS lock, exclusive to the brand; it is a central button closure that allows two positions: completely closed or closed leaving a slot, improving ventilation and helping to combat the mist. This system also prevents accidental opening of the screen. On the perimeter of the screen we have a large rubber crown that improves insulation against noise and rain.
In the interior of the helmet we find a completely new padding compared to the previous model. Now it is more comfortable and engaging, being the section that reinforces the touring slope of the helmet. There is mesh fabric to facilitate ventilation, as well as conduits that go directly to the inlets and outlets.

The foams are Sanitized antibacterial treatment and also improve the absorption of moisture thanks to 2Dry. All finished with Microsense in the foams that is responsible for making it much more pleasant the contact with the skin. The Veloce S is marketed with removable breath guard and chin curtain.
Closure and details
In line to offer a safety plus, the Veloce S has reflective details in the base of the helmet, system of extraction of cheeks in case of accident and double ring seal, the safest and only homologated for circuit.
