AGV X3000 HELMET - NIETO TRIBUTE
Angel Nieto was a Spanish Grand Prix motorcycle racer who won 13 world championships and ranks 3rd in the all time greats after Agostini and Rossi. The Nieto X3000 replica is a future collectable and manufactured in very limited numbers.
In the sixties, AGV designed and released its first full face helmet, in close cooperation with Giacomo Agostini. AGV shaped the helmet so that the chinbar arched up a bit and Ago could get even closer to his petrol tank. Agostini ended up putting a few World Championship titles to his name. 15 of them, to be exact.
Half a century later, AGV introduces the X3000. An impressive replica of Ago's helmet with a pedigree that, quite frankly, few other "retro-inspired" lids could ever live up to. AGV have worked really hard to recreate all the details of the achingly beautiful original while applying all of the safety features you'd expect to find in a newly released helmet. They used a strong, resilient composite-fibreglass shell which makes for a compact, light-weight helmet with a slim outer profile. The helmet is available in three different shell sizes, spread across six head sizes.
Just like the original you'll find the X3000 has a slight cut-away on the underside of the chin bar, a nice wink to the past and a defining feature of this helmet. The narrow chinbar means you get a nice and wide field of view. The visor itself is a chunky piece of injection-molded plastic that has a very well-built feel to it. It pivots open across four very obvious and pronounced positions. There's no rattling whatsoever and when closed, the rubber base provides a solid seal.
Another really clever design feature of the X3000 is the integrated ventilation system. It is opened by removing the rubber plug that sits in the visor on the middle of the forehead and tucks away in a discrete pocket underneath the cheek pad. Once opened, the design of the inner shell allows air to flow throughout the helmet.
