I haven't had issues with anything breaking, but I have had fogging with every Pista or Corsa I've owned.

Never had one break. Then again, I don't ever wear the thing except on the track. I can't imagine wearing it for general use. I would think it to be a horrible "riding" helmet if you have sized it correctly to not move at track speeds. Perhaps the visors are not designed for longevity. Don't know. I would think that "cycle" life of the mechanical components was probably not a big factor in the design as I'm sure at the racing level, they are not articulated often and the shields are probably tossed quite regularly.

first generation Pista was not all that well made IMO. Tabs were breaking off inside where your pads are connected to the helmet. Apparently this was fixed thereafter.

I use it as an every day helmet and the fit is as a helmet should fit.
If thinking about it I also delivered pizza for a while wearing the Pista (fastest deliveries ever )

The dealer didn't have the RH helmet tab in stock so he took one of a new helmet.
He told me the tabs are made of a light matter and its a common problem, that's why he changed it without asking questions.

The tab on the visor also broke (didn't see that) it can be changed but he changed the visor completely due to the fog issue.
NOTE: I don't clean the inside of the anti-fog visor to not harm the protective layer, somehow it started to peal... he asked me if I want a pin lock visor instead put I said no. I don't like it.

I also said the cheek pads don't hold too good, he checked my helmet size and told me a costumer had an accident with a week old Corsa, return to buy another Corsa and left the damaged one for the store, its the same size and I can have the pads for free "smell it, its still has the new helmet odor"

Don't know how the AGV service in the US but that was a good experience for me. I don't see it alot

First AGV for me (my whole life I had only Shoei's... don't like the Arai's shape).

Got a Pista GP for me and a Corsa for the wife.
