My 2 cents:

The TiTech is currently AGV’s top of the line helmet. I bought the helmet for two reasons, the first is that I really like loud helmets and this certainly fits that category and I am somewhat of a brand loyalist and have worm AGV helmets since the mid-80’s. I also have a Shoei RF-1000.

The TiTech is the lightest helmet have ever worn and is also the best fitting. You can choose from several different pad combinations to get a fairly custom fit. The pads are removable and washable. The pads do have an odd feel to them. They are not as plush to the touch as the pads I have found in most helmets, but they are still comfortable
.
The helmet is very comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time with little bother. My only complaint on the fit would be that because of the shape of the ear pads, it is more difficult to put on than a regular helmet (my ears fold up).

I have read many posts praising the quietness of this helmet and I totally disagree. I would call the helmet average at best. I would note that I do use shields with posts fore tear offs and it is likely that they do cause additional noise.

Ventilation on the helmet is pretty good. The vents can be opened and closed in 3 different locations on the helmet. I would rate it slightly better than most helmets I have tried, but far from what I would like to see. The helmet does seal up very well for cold weather riding. The breath deflector certainly helps as well.

I am not in the least unhappy with my decision to purchase this helmet. I do not believe it to be the perfect helmet, but certainly the best that I have owned.

AGV makes a great helmet. I picked up their top o' the line back in '98 and just updated when I got the 10 (RF-1000). My Shoei is a bit quieter than my AGV was. How does the noise level of the 2 compare?

AGV loyalist here too, i think theyre great helmets. As for the ear roll, it is a common problem with the ti tech's. I got used to it, but i think they are going to have a solution for it.

I think the RF if a little quieter. I really need to try switching shields and ride without the flat/post shield on the AGV.

I'm wearin a low budget HJC ac-10 and I have no complaints.it's three years old and evrything still works as intended. All helmets that have at least adequate ventilation are going to be noisy IMO
