History of AGV helmets
Gino Amisano began producing saddles for bicycles, Vespas and Lambretta's. Amisano also soon saw huge potential in the motorcycle world and in 1947 he started producing motorcycle helmets. His first helmets were actually no more than hardened leather caps, which were painted. You might even say the world of motorcycle helmets was still in its infancy! But development was moving fast.. In the 50's AGV already developed a fibreglass helmet, which looked a bit like an inverted soup bowl. An increasing number of racers chose Amisano as their helmet supplier, who in 1958 signed a sponsorship contract with Giacomo Agostini. Giacomo used the colors of the Italian flag to paint his helmets. The current logo of AGV is on the back of the helmet. After all, that was the one thing most of his rivals saw!
