This is the AGV K3 Valentino Rossi 5 Continents Helmet, a hugely popular Valentino Rossi helmet design in AGV’s popular K3 range – their entry level helmet that represents great value for money.
The design that is featured here is known as the ‘Five Continents’ design, and it was Valentino Rossi’s primary helmet design during the final couple of season at the end of his first spell with Yamaha.
The design was created by Aldo Drudi and features a large colourful Sun placed at the front of the helmet with the rays of the Sun radiating back towards the rear of the helmet. Each ray features a design to represent each of the five continents that MotoGP races are held in during the course of a season.
The rear of the helmet features a night sky with Rossi’s Moon logo and a large number ’46’.
This is a hugely popular design, and you can see why. It is colourful, stylish, and has become one of Valentino Rossi’s most recognizable helmet designs.
It was originally only available as a limited edition in the AGV GP-Tech range, so it is now a welcome addition to the much more affordable AGV K3 helmet range, giving many more riders the chance to get hold of the 5 Continents design.
The K3 takes some of the advanced features from the premium AGV helmet ranges, such as the race helmet shape and aerodynamics that maximizes the airflow whilst also minimizing noise levels. The K3 also takes the back spoiler feature fromt he premium AGV race helmets, which increases stability at high speeds. The ventilation system features three frontal intakes, and six back and side extractors, while a chin wind protector avoid turbulence inside the helmet.
Official Description: AGV K3 5-Continents Rossi Helmet:
The K-3 is near the top end of the AGV entry level range. GP-Tech lines and Valentino Rossi replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for young riders and fans of the racing world.

The K3 is AGV’s entry-level full face helmet and is designed to offer a rider on a budget the experience of owning a premium product.

The K3 uses AGV’s well proven HIR-TH (high resistant thermoplastic) resin shell construction, this shell is very strong and has excellent shock absorbing properties, however the manufacturing process is much quicker and simpler than an equivalent fiberglass shell. This ultimately is reflected in the price of the helmet enabling riders on a budget to have an exceptionally safe and well made product at the fraction of the price you would expect to pay for a premium branded helmet.
