Now this is an awesome old-school Valentino Rossi helmet design. This is the AGV K3 Valentiuno Rossi helmet with the design that he wore for the 2001 Brazil Grand Prix.
The design loosely follows the Sun and Moon pattern that Rossi wore during the early 2000s – with the sun’s face directly at the front, with the rays flowing backwards towards the rear where the moon motif is placed. The difference is this design is that the Sun motif has been redesigned with an almost tribal style approach.
This specific Valentino Rossi design hasn’t been available for quite some time, so it is nice to see it make a return in the affordable AGV K3 helmet range. This is also a nice design for someone looking for a Valentino Rossi replica who doesn’t want to ride around with the more common designs that you usually see on the streets at the moment – this is something a bit different. Bold, bright, and a bit special.
The K3 range takes some of the best features from the higher (and much more expensive) AGV ranges, for example, the high resistant thermoplastic resin shell from the premium models is used on the K3 range. This is a great way for a rider on a budget to get an aggressive looking race replica that is ideal for everyday road use.
