  2. Italy

  3. It's an Italian company, but I thought they were actually manufactured in China or Indonesia? I'll see if I can find something to support that.

    EDIT - Here you go, made in China:

    EDIT 2 - Yes, a google of AGV and "Made in China" returns heaps of comments from customers who feel mislead.

  4. Does anyone know if the earlier model agv helmets were made in Italy? As i've seen some advertised on ebay saying "made in italy".

  7. So does mine. Maybe the cheaper models are made in China.

  8. 1984, the model I bought back in, made in Italy, it was.

  9. The Ti-Tech is definitely made in China now, and it's one of their more expensive models isn't it? I believe all manufacturing was moved to China recently, but (not surprisingly) it's hard to find much info.

  10. My AGV lid, that I purchased in the year of 1998 is made in Italy.

  13. My GP Pro was made in Italy but like posters have said other models, perhaps all of them now, are made in China and/or Indonesia.

    Nolans are still made in Italy.

  15. My car is made in Australia.

    Apparently they make cheese in France.

  16. I hate cheese, smells funny.

    Back on subject. How long has Dainese owned AGV for? Could the shift in production location be a result of their ownership?

  17. I thought everything made in china had to have a 'made in china' sticker on it - kinda like the government health warnings on cigarette packets! :LOL:


    My AGV Ti-tech also has "fabricato in Italio" or something on it, It's a year or two old.
