Valentino Rossi Soleluna 2016 AGV Pista GP R helmet

Feeling flush? I hope so, because this is the new Valentino Rossi Soleluna helmet that is now available in the AGV Pista GP R range.

This is the helmet design that Rossi started wearing during the 2016 MotoGP season, and it is an update on his classic Sun & Moon (Soleluna) helmet design. The Sun and Moon still take prominence on the helmet, but this time round the design is covered in geometrical patterns and shapes, and it also includes splashes of coulor that isn;t usually seen on a Valentino Rossi helmet – like fuschia.

It’s a beautiful design and it is available now in limited numbers in the premium AGV Pista GP R range. This is the new version of AGV’s Pista, which is basically their race specification helmet. This is a helmet for serious riders or serious collectors.

AGV Corsa R Rossi Goodwood

This is a beautiful looking Valentino Rossi replica helmet that is now available in the new AGV Corsa GP helmet range.

You may not recognise this helmet design as Rossi has never worn it for a MotoGP race – it was worn for the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed that Rossi attended to mark the 60th anniversary of Yamaha’s involvement in motorcycle racing.

The design used many of the classic colours and motifs from the early years of Yamaha’s factory racing team, using the black, yellow, and white colourway that was famously associated with Kenny Roberts.

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Winter Test helmet 2016 (The Snowman)

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Winter Test helmet 2016 (The Snowman)

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Winter Test helmet 2016 (The Snowman)

Valentino Rossi delighted fans once again in 2016 with his choice of helmet design for the Winter Test sessions. Valentino has a long history of using the MotoGP Winter Tests as a platform for showing off a new, and usually funny, helmet design.

At Sepang he debuted the ‘Snowman’ helmet – another winter themed design that was intended to poke fun at the paradox of MotoGP Winter testing taking place in tropical heat and humid conditions.

The helmet featured a large smiling snowman positioned directly on the front, wearing a yellow hat and scarf featuring the Yamaha logo.

Valentino Rossi Snowman

AGV are now releasing the Valentino Rossi winter test Snowman helmet as a limited edition in their premium Pista GP range.

Official Description of the AGV Pista Valentino Rossi Snowman helmet:
The Pista GP is the revolutionary new top of the range model. Developed in collaboration with Valentino Rossi and other riders from the World Championship Series, the Pista GP sets new standards in terms of protection and ergonomics and is the benchmark for professional race helmets. The carbon fibre shell and the EPS internal components were optimised using FEM techniques (Finite Elements Analysis) to obtain an extremely high performance helmet in terms of size, light weight and protection. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1275 g (refers to MS size in the ECE 2205 version).

The entire ventilation system was designed using computational fluid dynamic modelling and wind tunnel tests. This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider’s head. Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Pista GP boasts first class performance in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor aperture is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor.

The fit of the Pista GP was developed using “Human Engineering” whereby the design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer’s head. The inside of the helmet starts with a concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped to match the contours of the rider’s head and any surfaces in contact with the head are stitch-free. The Lycra® and Shalimar® sanitized internal components are fully adjustable due to the fact that the position and depth of the crown pad can be modified as can the thickness of the cheek pads. The combination of these solutions, which are covered by three separate patents, make the Pista GP fit the different cranial shapes as never before

Features:

  • Limited edition monster version
  • Shell: made entirely of Carbon composite fibre
  • Number of shells: 4 shell sizes
  • Ventilation System: IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with channels hollowed directly in the shell
  • Inside padding: Fully removable and washable. Available in summer and winter versions.
  • Visor: Flat, non-scratch, anti-fog RACE visor with wide field of vision, equipped for tear-off strips with 100% protection from UV rays; Comes complete with Pinlock insert
  • New visor mechanism in metal with swivel opening. Quick release system for tool-free removal and replacement of the visor in seconds
  • Fastening System: Double D
  • Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Misano 2015 Shark helmet

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Misano 2015 Shark helmet

AGV are releasing the Valentino Rossi ‘Watch Out For Sharks’ helmet design that Rossi used during the 2015 Misano MotoGP. The helmet features a small yellow fish positioned at the front that is being chased by a huge shark who is right behind it.

The fish represents Valentino Rossi and the Shark represents all the other racers (mostly Jorge Lorenzo) who are out to beat Rossi at his home race. Valentino was leading the Championship when he arrived for the Misano MotoGP in 2015, and the helmet design was supposed to indicate the pressure he was under for his home race.

It’s a beautiful design and it will be very popular with fans. AGV are releasing this Valentino Rossi replica helmet as a Limited Edition in ther Corsa range, which means it will be a great collectors item.

The Corsa is a premium helmet from AGV that basically combines the performance of the Pista GP (their race spec helmet) with the characteristics and flexibility needed for road use.

The Corsa has the performance of the Pista GP and the characteristics of a helmet for road use.

Official Description:

The shell in CAAF (Carbon-Aramidic-Fiberglass) was designed using FEM techniques (Finite Elements Analysis) and features EPS internal ducts in the shell to provide a small, light helmet which is both comfortable and extremely safe. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1340 g (refers to MS size ECE 2205 version).

Unlike the Pista GP, the Corsa comes with a system for opening and closing the air vents which makes it a less extreme, more versatile helmet. The entire ventilation system was designed using computational fluid dynamic modelling and wind tunnel tests. This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider’s head. Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Corsa boasts first class performance in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor aperture is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor.

The fit of the Corsa was developed using “Human Engineering” whereby the design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer’s head. The inside of the helmet starts with a concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped to match the contours of the rider’s head and any surfaces in contact with the head are stitch-free. The Lycra® and Shalimar® sanitized internal components are fully adjustable due to the fact that the position and depth of the crown pad can be modified as can the thickness of the cheek pads.

The combination of these solutions, which are covered by three separate patents, make the Corsa fit the different cranial shapes as never before.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015 Helmet (Limited Edition)

This is the AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015 Helmet which is now available in Limited Edition numbers.

Valentino Rossi first used this helmet during the first MotoGP winter test session for 2015. The winter test took place in Sepang in the usual sweltering conditions, so Rossi chose to inject a bit of humor to the proceedings by using a helmet design based on a woolly Christmas hat. Rossi even brought a proper woolly winter hat (in the same design as his helmet) with him to Sepang.

Valentino Rossi winter hat

The helmet was designed by longtime Rossi helmet collaborator, Aldo Drudi, and it features the recognizable yellow and blue colour scheme of Valentino Rossi. The helmet is patterned with various Christmas and winter icons, all made to look like they were knitted around the helmet.

The crown of the helmet features a giant yellow snowflake, and further down the helmet are two further rows of blue ‘cable-knitted’ snowflakes. Inbetween these rows of knitted snowflakes are rows of knitted reindeer, and a row of knitted Christmas tress that run around the base of the helmet.

The rear sides of the helmet feature Rossi’s number 46……made to look like it has been knitted in to the helmet.

Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015

This is one of Rossi’s most eyecatching Winter Test helmets.

AGV have now released this design as a Limited Edition in the Corsa helmet range. The Corsa has the performance of the Pista GP (which is the helmet model that Rossi races in) and the characteristics of a helmet for road use.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi ‘Wish You Were Here’ Helmet

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi 'Wish You Were Here' Helmet

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi 'Wish You Were Here' Helmet

The is the AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi ‘Wish You Were Here’ Helmet, also known as the ‘Wish’ helmet, which has now been released in the Corsa range.

This is a very special Valentino Rossi helmet design and it was created as a tribute to his close friend, and fellow MotoGP racer, Marco Simoncelli who was killed during the Sepang MotoGP in 2011.

Rossi unveiled this helmet at the Misano round of the 2013 MotoGP season. Ever since MotoGP returned to Misano in 2008, Valentino Rossi has had a custom helmet design created to celebrate the fact that this is his home race….literally, as the town of Tavullia where he was born is only a few miles up the road from the circuit.

Bringing this helmet tribute to the Misano MotoGP also held a deeper significance – Simoncelli was also a local, he was born in Cattolica, a seaside town a few miles away from the circuit, and the Misano circuit was renamed the ‘Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli’ in 2011 as a tribute to him.

The helmet was design by Aldo Drudi and it features the album cover for Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish you Were Here’. The top of the helmet features the robot arms, and the rear of the helmet features the famous Pink Floyd photograph showing two suited men shaking hands, with one on fire. The sides of the helmet feature Rossi’ number ’46’ in yellow.

Aldo Drudi described the helmet: “this year’s idea is very simple: the album cover dominates the crown of the helmet. Two robotic hands unite the four elements in the background”.

Valentino Rossi Misano 2013

The ‘Wish You Were Here’ reference is a clear message from Rossi to his good friend Marco Simoncelli, and the lyrics in the song are also pertinent to men who make their living risking their lives going round the same tracks every year during the MotoGP season:

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here

Official description of the AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi ‘Wish’ helmet:
Valentino Rossi’s dedication is very closely linked to the musical meaning of the images on the helmet. Wish you were here is an album about the absence of man, sad and lost in what Gilmour and waters define as the “society of machines”. There is no doubt that the absence of Marco Simoncelli has been felt even more strongly at his “home track” which was in fact named after him a few months after his tragic death.

This limited edition reproduces the graphics On Valentino’s race helmet except for the text “wish you were here” and visor components / accessories. The M of the monster energy logo is shown with his stylised flames on the chin guard and sides of the helmet.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi 'Wish You Were Here' Helmet

The Corsa model combines the performance of the Pista GP with the characteristics needed for use on the road.

The Corsa has a carbon-fibre/glass-fibre/aramid fibre ssl (super super Light) shell which was designed using fem techniques and Features EPS internal ducts to create a small, light helmet Which is both comfortable and extremely safe. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior to the limits set by ECE Standards and that weighs just 1350g* (+/- 50 g) in MS size (the weight refers to the ECE 2205 version) Unlike the Pista GP, the Corsa comes with a system for opening And closing the air vents which makes it a less extreme, more versatile helmet. The entire ventilation system was designed Using computational fluid dynamics studies and wind tunnel tests.

This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider’s head. Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Corsa boasts unparalleled performance as in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor area is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor

The fit of the Corsa was developed using the new “human Engineering” process with which design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer’s head. The padding inside the helmet starts with a concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped to match the contours of the rider’s head and any surfaces in contact with the head are stitch-free.

The Lycra® and Shalimar® sanitised internal components are fully adjustable due to the fact that the position and depth of the crown pad can be modified as can the thickness of the cheek pads. The combination of these solutions, which are covered by Three separate patents, make the Corsa fit different shapes of skull as never before.

Extreme standards helmets is the name of the Revolutionary new range of AGV helmets which Includes the Corsa. It is based on the “human engineering” concept and applies to a new design process which starts from the components that are in direct contact with the head and gradually progresses to the outer shell. As a result, the structural shapes imitate the area of contact thus providing greater safety and smaller dimensions

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi SoleLuna Helmet

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi SoleLuna Helmet

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi SoleLuna Helmet

This is the latest Valentino Rossi design from AGV helmets, now available in their AGV Corsa range.

The design is called ‘Soleluna’ and it is a replica of the primary helmet design that Valentino Rossi has been racing with during the 2015 and 2015 MotoGP seasons.

The Soleluna was also released as a Limited Edition complete with Rossi’s full Monster Energy sponsorship logos in the premium AGV Pista GP range.

The Soleluna was designed by Aldo Drudi, who is responsible for all of Valentino Rossi’s helmet designs throughout his career. It features the dual motifs of a Sun and a Moon, that Valentino Rossi has had featured on pretty much all of his helmets – the Sun and the Moon are supposed to represent the two sides of Valentino’s personality. The Sun is featured at the front of the helmet and rises up above the visor, and the rays of the sun spread back towards the rear of the helmet, where they cross over a dark crescent moon that is positioned directly at the rear.

On each side of the base of the helmet, Rossi’s race number ’46’ can be seen.

Valentino Rossi 2014

This is an incredible looking lid that is bursting with colour and life, and is really eye-catching on the road.

This has become an iconic Valentino Rossi helmet design, and it takes inspiration from two other of Rossi’s helmets, the ‘Elements‘ and the ‘5 Continents‘, that also featured a similar layout of having the Sun at the front and the Moon at the rear.

Valentino Rossi had some fun with this iconic design during the 2013 MotoGP test sessions and flipped the design, so the Moon was at the front and the rear featured the Sun and a graphic of Valentino’s face peering out of the visor – check it out here.

The AGV Corsa range is a bit more affordable than the Pista GP range and it is a much more forgiving and flexible helmet to ensure it is suitable for everyday road use, but it still retains many of the premium features that you would get in the Pista range. Make no mistake this is a quality helmet that equally at on the road as it is at high speed track days.

Official description of the Valentino Rossi Soleluna Corsa helmet: Featuring a modern take on the classic Sun / Moon Valentino Rossi VR46 graphics, the AGV Corsa Sole Luna Helmet combines the performance of the Pista GP with road-riding features such as adjustable ventilation and improved comfort, without sacrificing the performance standards of the GP model.

The AGV Corsa Helmet has been awarded a Five Star SHARP certification. SHARP (Safety Helmet and Assessment Rating Programme) is the UK Department of Transportation’s independent helmet evaluation system and a 5 Star Rating represents the highest echelon of protection, the Corsa is now listed among the safest helmets in the world.

Built in conjunction with Valentino Rossi and tested at the highest levels. The Corsa is not a full carbon fiber shell but the shell shape, aerodynamics, ventilation and eye-port improvements will be shared cross platform with the Pista GP Helmet.

Key improvements of the Corsa compared to the GP Tech:

  • Weight savings over the GP-Tech to be announced
  • 193% more ventilation surface area
  • 71% smaller visor movement area
  • 48% less HIC index standard (Head Injury Criterion)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Mugello 2015 helmet (Limited Edition)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Mugello 2015 helmet (Limited Edition)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Mugello 2015 helmet (Limited Edition)

True to form, Valentino Rossi unveiled a special helmet design on Saturday morning of his home Italian MotoGP at Mugello in 2015, and the design has now been made available from AGV.

This is the AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Mugello 2015 helmet, which is also sometimes known as the Valentino Rossi ‘Mirror’ helmet or the ‘Solar Power’ helmet, or even the ‘Yellow Energy’ helmet.

Rossi wore this helmet design for the 2015 Mugello MotoGP, and the chrome mirror finish on the top of the helmet makes it one of Rossi’s most striking helmet designs. This design is pretty simplistic when compared with previous designs that Valentino has worn for the Mugello MotoGP, but it is equally as striking as the ones that have gone before it in the past.

The helmet was designed by Aldo Drudi and it was supposed to represent how Rossi’s energy rises during the race weekend as he feeds of the energy of the fans, before it reaches its maximum level for race day.

The chin and cheeks of the helmet have a blue design that is supposed to represent a solar panel, and the rear of the helmet features six different energy levels, starting at ‘red’ for the first free practice session before rising all the way to green and eventually ‘yellow’, the highest level, for race day.

The right hand side of the helmet has the words ‘Energia Rinnovabile’, which basically means renewable energy, running round the rim of the visor, while the left hand side has the words ‘Yellow Energy’ in the same place. The top of the helmet had a mirror effect to reflect back and mirror all the fans the crowd into the hills of the Mugello circuit.

AGV released a statement about the design that reads:

During a typical race weekend, ‘The Doctor’s’ energy level steadily rises until attaining its peak in time for Sunday’s race. To represent this phenomenon, the rear of his 2015 Mugello helmet reflects six different energy levels, beginning with the bright red of the first free practice and advancing session by session to the maximum level—Vale’s signature yellow—just in time for him to line up on the starting grid.

AGV have released this stunning Valentino Rossi race replica in the Corsa range – the Corsa helmet range sits between the AGV K3 SV and the premium Pista GP range, making it more affordable than the Pista. The Corsa takes many of the premium features from the Pista, but it is more engineered for everyday street and road use than the Pista.

Official Description of the AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Mugello 2015 (Mirror) helmet:
The Corsa is a supersport helmet which combines the performance of the Pista GP with road-going characteristics such as adjustable ventilation and improved comfort without having to forget the performance standards of the GP version.

Fitted with a double-D retention system, the outer shell is made up of SSL layers (Aramid and glass fibers) and is available in four sizes. The design is intended to cut to the minimum any interference with the racing suit and protective hump and to optimize safety even at high speed.

The spoiler has been designed to detach from the helmet in the event of an accident to increase the passive safety of the helmet. The visor component area has been reduced by 71% compared with the GP Tech and this allows the space saved to be used to increase the thickness of the impact absorption material with all the safety benefits that brings. The visor can easily be removed as can the washable inner components. To provide improved comfort, the surfaces in direct contact with the head are seamless and the fit can be optimized with special additional padding to the cheeks and back of the neck. Designed to maximize comfort, ergonomics, safety and aerodynamics.

Made in Italy and protective of the environment: the Corsa is designed and made in Italy by highly qualified craftsmen using the very latest technology. These helmets are manufactured using the best technologies with great effort invested in protecting the environment. Waterjet technology is used to cut the carbon fiber shells, the painting system uses eco-compatible water-based paints and a dust suppression / residue treatment system is in operation throughout the entire factory.

Extreme Standards Helmets is the name of the revolutionary new range of AGV helmets which includes the Corsa. It is based on the “human engineering” concept and applies to a new design process which starts from the components that are in direct contact with the head and gradually progresses to the outer shell. As a result, the structural shapes imitate the area of contact, thus providing greater safety and smaller dimensions.

Features:

  • Shell: SSL (Super Super Light) in composite fiber, Aramid and carbon fiber.
  • Number of shells: 4 shell sizes.
  • Fabric: Breathable Lycra® lining and Shalimar® fabric with sanitizing treatment.
  • Liners: Fully removable and washable inner liners.
  • Ventilation system: IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with wide ducts hollowed into the shell.
  • Air vents with open / close mechanism.
  • Visor mechanism: XQRS (X-tra Quick Release System) in metal with roto-translation opening. Visor front micro-lock system that reduces the risk of accidental opening in the event of an accident. Quick release system for tool-free removal and replacement of the visor in seconds.
  • Race flat, Class 1 optical standards, non-scratch and anti-fog visor (4 layers) with wide field of vision suitable for tear-off strips.
  • Retention system: Double-D.
  • Removable nose guard.
  • Removable windproof chin strap protection.
  • Homologation: ECE 2205, AS / NZS, JIS, ECE / DOT.

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna helmet

This is the AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna helmet – and it is a beautiful Valentino Rossi race replica helmet. This version is also extra-special as it comes complete with the Monster Energy sponsorship logos on the helmet, something that rarely happens on Valentino Rossi replicas, making it look even more authentic.

This latest design was created by Aldo Drudi and it has pretty much been Rossi’s primary helmet design since he returned to Yamaha in the 2013 MotoGP season.

It is a stunning design that utilises Rossi’s usual Sun and Moon logos to striking effect. The front of the helmet features a bright yellow sun that has yellow, blue, and red rays sweeping back towards the rear of the helmet where they intersect with a large blue and red crescent moon.

The sharp chin of the helmet features the green and black Monster energy logo, which also appears again on the sides towards the back of the helmet. Either side of the helmet features Valentino Rossi’s race number ’46’.

As race replicas go, this is about as authentic as they come – it is basically the same lid that Rossi races with.

The AGV Pista model is the ‘next generation’ helmet from AGV, and it has been in development since 2012 when Valentino Rossi was seen wearing it during testing for Ducati. It has since gne on to be the racers choice for a number of MotoGP riders including Jack Miller and Pol Espargaro. AGV maintain that the Pista has an ‘exclusive’ ergonomic design that makes the helmet the most aerodynamic lid in its class, and they have even gone as far to state that the Pista will lift the bar higher for all helmets and establish a new standard.

Official Description of the AGV Pista Soleluna helmet:
The Pista GP is the revolutionary new top of the range model. Developed in collaboration with Valentino Rossi and other riders from the World Championship Series, the Pista GP sets new standards in terms of protection and ergonomics and is the benchmark for professional race helmets. The carbon fibre shell and the EPS internal components were optimised using FEM techniques (Finite Elements Analysis) to obtain an extremely high performance helmet in terms of size, light weight and protection. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1275 g (refers to MS size in the ECE 2205 version).

The entire ventilation system was designed using computational fluid dynamic modelling and wind tunnel tests. This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider’s head. Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Pista GP boasts first class performance in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor aperture is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor.

The fit of the Pista GP was developed using “Human Engineering” whereby the design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer’s head. The inside of the helmet starts with a concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped to match the contours of the rider’s head and any surfaces in contact with the head are stitch-free. The Lycra® and Shalimar® sanitized internal components are fully adjustable due to the fact that the position and depth of the crown pad can be modified as can the thickness of the cheek pads. The combination of these solutions, which are covered by three separate patents, make the Pista GP fit the different cranial shapes as never before
