Now that the cold weather is losing the battle to longer days and rising temperatures, it’s a good idea to take stock of all your riding gear before the season gets into full swing. Through May 15, AGV is running a special “Trade and Save” offer on old motorcycle helmets. If you bring in your old helmet, regardless of the brand, to any participating AGV retail partner, they’ll take it off your hands and give you a coupon for 20 percent off any new AGV helmet.

It’s recommended you replace your helmet after three or four seasons of regular use; materials in the helmet degrade over time and lose their effectiveness. It’s wise to inspect your helmet each season anyway, just in case, but if your helmet took a serious knock from a crash or suffereed an accidental drop, you’ll want to get a new one as soon as possible. Once the impact foam does its job and compresses, it stays compressed.

The AGV Trade and Save deal is a pretty genius idea at a very convenient time of the year: get rid of an old lid and save some money on a new one, just in time for spring riding.
