Yes, Bob. The 39 can be returned for either refund/ exchange.

The 37, being a close-out, can be returned, for store credit/ exchange.

14 day return period, from the time of receipt.

Thanks,

Joe

That I don't know. I haven't spent enough time with this one to recall.

This is Motostrano Joe's question, I want to be respectful and not hijack it. But I do have something that may help you gentlemen. I tried the FX18 a while back (at a Parts Showcase) and it had a greatly improved fit. I compared it to the FX37 directly, and did not notice the forehead pressure that (37) had. The AFX rep was emphatic that this issue was going to be cured on the FX-39, and that it woudl fit similar to the FX18 I tried. I feel he was accurate and sincere.

Everything I have heard indicates that the FX-39 will be a better fitting helmet. I do not feel you will have issues with it.

Not to be repetitive but Im just trying to get a good handle on the fit of the FX-18 or the 39. The prices are super great and Joe's policy sounds great too. Im just not one for wanting to return stuff like this. I like trying my gear on to be sure.

Ditto, what he said.

we just took delivery of the new AGV AX8 DUAL helmet, incidentally.

Ahhhhhh.....the plot thickens..

This is a very nice helmet indeed. What are the safety ratings?

It actually looks more dirt/off road/MX'y than the Arai or Shoei.

indeed.

the AX8 Dual is ECE and DOT. Standard AGV protocol. Extremely light weight and a compact design. Makes the ICON Variant seem bulbous.

our info on it is here:

and, just spent some off-bike time in an AX8.

the AX8 is a very comfortable and solid feeling helmet, inside and out. very comfortable liner, good feeling exterior and mechanisms.

because folks are asking, who like to have the option of riding with goggles when needed and with the shield when wanted- you can't fit goggles on the helmet without removing the shield- the opening is too narrow for that, which is easy to do.

To avoid confusion.. I think you meant AFX-39

We also did a little research on the shield situation between the FX-39 and the AFX FX-37. Seems AFX had heard the many complaints about shield distortion from users, but could not replicate or identify it in a lab. They were sending shields to TUV in Germany for testing, and they all came through as optically correct. The same production materials and techniques yielded no issues on other AFX models. But still, customers felt the shield distorted. AFX finally determined that it was human factors, the curve of the shield created issues with people that resulted in distortion. On this model, AFX changed the curvature of the shield, to make it flatter. This has yielded much better clarity.

They are due in approx 3/14.
