OUR MISSION STATEMENT

AGV Sports Group is a company which has quietly provided some of the best protective gear, in the world, for motorcyclists over 35 years. We have remained one of the oldest rider-owned and operated apparel companies in the motorcycle industry. AGV Sports Group produces high quality protective apparel, offering top performance at a great value. Born in the early days of AGV Helmet's entry into the US market, AGV Sports Group has a unique technical outlook on the design of our protective apparel.

Our commitment to materials and design innovation has played a major role in the evolution of the AGVSPORT product line. Our products are engineered to be strong, light, abrasion resistant, cool, and comfortable. From affordable entry-level products, to world class high performance safety apparel for professional racers, AGVSPORT products are geared for the serious rider or racer.

The list of riders who have worn AGVSPORT products, at some point during their career, reads like a Who's Who of road racing: Randy Mamola, Loris Capirossi, Troy Bayliss, Kurtis Roberts, Steve Crevier, Ben Bostrom, Eric Bostrom, Thomas Stevens, Pascal Picotte, Roland Sands, Mike Hale, Randy Renfrow, Aaron Yates, and seven time AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin. AGVSPORT has been the official leathers for Keith Code's California Superbike School for more than twenty years. Unlike most other apparel manufacturers, the identical AGVSPORT products worn by the professional riders can be purchased by the general public.

In addition to the information we collect from our world-class professional riders, a lot of input is received from our customers and our own personal experience. We are passionate about the sport. All of the personnel involved in product development at AGV Sports Group are riders, and are among the sport's greatest enthusiasts.

Since that time AGVSPORT has enjoyed a comfortable position in the apparel industry. By continuing their age old business model “Designed by Riders, for Riders,” and “The Science of Safety” which combined years of helmet industry knowledge. AGVSPORT has always been on the cutting edge of the safety apparel design and construction. AGV Sports Group has always been, and will always be, a company of avid riders and enthusiasts who are wearing and always developing AGVSPORT apparel. This ensures that you, the customer, will experience the best and safest products we have to offer, and we hope that you will actually be able to feel the history of Gino Amisano and progress of AGVSPORT every time you ride and are wearing any of our AGVSPORT leathers or textiles.

Each product is designed by riders, for riders, and function is never sacrificed for aesthetics. By keeping product development and design in house and using experienced riders, we are staying true to the dedicated following of discerning motorcycle enthusiasts who respect the quality and value of AGVSPORT performance driven products.
