The AGV Veloce S Salom 2016 is a Luis Salom race replica helmet, a tribute to the late Moto2 racer featuring bold colours, brilliant rose design and his trademark number 39.
The Veloce S helmet takes the latest track-proven technology and adapts it for the street, making MotoGP innovations available to a wider range of riders. The updated Veloce is aimed at road riding but can easily be taken on the track, with high levels of both protection and comfort. If you're not looking for a pure race lid but want a top quality sport touring helmet, the Veloce S is a first-rate option.
Like its predecessor the GT Veloce, the Veloce S uses a CAAF carbon, aramid and fibreglass blend of materials to create a strong and lightweight shell. The aerodynamic shape is designed to be stable at high speeds on track, but also to keep you comfortable in the upright riding position. The shell comes in four sizes, to ensure a great fit and minimise extra padding. All this combines to make a highly protective helmet.
A new safety feature on the Veloce S is the emergency cheek pad removal system, newly introduced on all of AGV's high end helmets. The red pull tabs on the underside of the neck roll enable the emergency services to remove your helmet safely in the event of an accident - minimising the risk of neck or spinal injury. Another thoughtful touch is the reflective details to the bottom of the helmet, providing extra visibility in low light.
Inside the helmet, the EPS liner has multiple densities. It's toughest at the most vulnerable areas of your head for superior shock absorption, but saves weight in other areas with a lower density. The EPS liner also comes in four sizes, allowing you to find your perfect custom fit.
The Veloce S focuses on complete comfort over any length of journey, minimising distractions so you can focus on riding. The interior has been re-designed and simplified, with denser pads similar to the Corsa-R race helmet. These block road noise and withstand strong winds, offering superior protection and support. The neck roll is thicker than the previous model and lined with a hydrophobic material, so that water won't seep into the helmet when you take it off and put it down in the wet.
The cheek pads are lined with Ritmo fabric and the crown pad is lined with Shalimar, premium materials used on the Pista and Corsa race helmets. Both of these have anti-bacterial and moisture-wicking properties, to keep your skin comfortable in all conditions. The whole liner is removable and washable, keeping the interior feeling fresh for longer. There are also recesses in the interior for intercom systems or earbuds, ideal for touring.
Ventilation is excellent on the Veloce S, using AGV's IVS ventilation system. Five large air intakes at the front are strategically placed to scoop in as much fresh air as possible, push it through special channels in the EPS liner and expel warm air through the two rear vents. Aimed at maximum airflow when riding hard and fast, the front vents are also able to be opened and closed, allowing you to find your ideal balance between quietness and ventilation.
The AGV Veloce S visor is a new design, similar to the Pista and Corsa helmets. This optically correct (class 1 optic) visor gives a wider 190° field of vision for extra safety and performance wherever you ride. With an anti-scratch coating and tear-off posts, the visor is prepared for track use and has a 3.3mm thickness to protect your face and eyes in an accident. The visor is Pinlock-ready and a Pinlock anti-fog insert is included in the box with your helmet.
AGV's patented Visor Lock system is new across all of their top spec helmets, providing a super-tight and reliable seal. The button which operates the visor lock is recessed slightly, avoiding accidental visor opening. The visor can be removed and replaced easily and quickly with a rapid release mechanism to the side of the visor.
Finally, the AGV Veloce S uses the tried-and-trusted double D-ring retention method, for a secure and personalised fit every time.
This denotes the material with which the shell has been made. Kevlar, fibreglass and carbon are all known for their lightweight yet incredibly strong properties.
