Take this for what it is worth, but at the dealer show in Indy last year I was talking to the AGV rep and he had a bare shell from a Ti model AGV (their best helmet) and I could see areas that were fiberglass and some that were carbon fiber and asked what the deal was. He said in testing it has shown certain areas of the helmet shell needed the characteristics of the different materials and an all carbon helmet was not the best design, they had tried it.:twocents
I think that the helmet standard jihad has been covered elsewhere. ECE testing standard is much higher, IMO, than DOT or Snell. The real question here is about fitment. In my experience fitting this helmet (used to carry them at my old shop), it is a unique head shape. People who liked Arai Signet and Shoei could fit into it fine. Seemed to be better for the more oval shaped head. Definitely you should get fitted for it or get a return guarantee.
There's no f'ing way I would ever put a CF helmet on my head. Possible fragmentation upon impact aside, CF is very stiff - stiff means you transfer more external force to the liner, and ultimately to your skull. I'll stick with what's been tried and tested for years when it comes to protecting my brains. :twocents
