Thats definitely not ok for a 2 year old helmet. Have you talked to AGV?

sent them a msg today thru the agv.com and thru their facebook page.
also e-mailed the seller and visited the local dealer.

shooting all directions, ill "hit" something...

one important thing is that the helmets serial/bar-code is still on, without it no one can help, its the helmets ID in the factory.

Where was this helmet made in? I was thinking recently about AGV Corsa Iannone Seagull but once I found out it was made in China I gave up.

It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. Ive got a pista gp and have a gp r on order so im hoping this is a one off issue and they step up to take care of you.


Pistas are made in italy and i think the some(or all) of the other other lines are made in china.

There was a video of a guy who got the seagull and it was pretty horrible. The square decals werent straight and worst of all the visor would not stay open, any little movement the visor would come down a bit.

AGV's customer support is kinda crappy. When I bought my and my girl's Pista GP the inside of the OEM visor was peeling off (the anti-fog coating) and I emailed them (Italy and USA) and no reply at all... Good thing is Cycle Gear took care of it and they replaced my visor with a Race one (more expensive) that doesn't come with that cheap a$$ coating and I just bought a Pinlock lens and done!

Never had any issues with my corsa... and as long as I've had my visor insert I have not experienced any fogging, even while tracking at Road America in the rain last year
