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 27 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.

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.

With 25 years in the making, AGVSPORT has exceeded expectations in not only the business world but the racing world.

PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 06, 2010 – This year marks the 20th anniversary celebrating AGVSPORT’s sponsorship of the California Superbike School. Keith Code, founder of the number one bike school, has taught over 100,000 racers including 15 superbike champions who have taken AGVSPORT leathers to the podium. To add on to their historic year AGVSPORT has reached a long term and exclusive licensing agreement with their official U.S. distributor Motonation (http://www.motonation.com), a San Diego based company offering products from American and Italian designers. Motonation now has coverage from head-to-toe of the highest quality motorcycle gear from AGVSPORT, SIDI, and VEMAR.

In 1978, AGV USA, a division of Intersport, Inc., became the official importer of AGV Helmets for the United States. Founded in 1985, this year marks the 25th anniversary of AGVSPORT Group Inc which is one of the oldest riders owned and operated apparel companies in the industry. Under the direction of Michael Parrotte (http://www.parrotte.net) they make sure their products are engineered for maximum functionality without compromising abrasion resistance and comfort.

Identical products worn by AGVSPORT professional riders, most notably four-time AMA Superbike champion Mat Mladin, can be purchased by the general public. Each product is designed by riders for riders and function is never sacrificed for aesthetics. Keeping product development with Sportbike enthusiasts in house they stay loyal to our dedicated followers who respect the quality and value of AGVSPORT.

The 2010 product line has had nothing but good review most notably from trackdaymag.com (http://www.trackdaymag.com/Articles/AGV-Sport-Laguna-1-piece-suit.aspx) regarding their Laguna suit. “Overall, the functionality of the AGV Sport suit was so good that when he switched back to his regular leathers later in the day, our tester immediately felt hot… This is one serious suit and the price is right in line with the cost of similar garments from other top brands.” The review goes on to say that the suit has immense functionality and comfort even after a tedious day at the track. It can be purchased through Motonation or found at one of their vendor displays on an upcoming weekend.

Moving forward this year AGVSPORT will be at the 2010 Red Bull Indy MotoGP at the Indianapolis Motorspeedway the 27th to the 29th of August. In addition to the MotoGP, they will also be present at the New Jersey round of the AMA Pro Superbike Championship at New Jersey Motorsports Park the 3rd to the 5th of September. With a vendor space at both events being filled with the famous Laguna suits as well as premium leather jacket and pant separates, it can’t be missed.
