This is the Valentino Rossi ‘Hand Print’ helmet design in the premium AGV Pista GP helmet range.
This is a replica of the design that Valentino Rossi wore for the 2014 Misano MotoGP and it is also known as ‘Give us a hand’.
The design features the handprints of some of the key people in Valentino Rossi’s life – and the helmet is adorned with coloured handprints from Rossi’s team, his mechanics, and even includes paw prints from his two Bulldogs (Cesare and Cecilia) and his cat (Rossano) which can be seen on the rear of the helmet.
The sides of the helmet feature lipstick kiss imprints from Rossi’s mother Stefano and his girlfriend Linda. The helmet also features a fingerprint from Aldo Drudi – the man behind all of Rossi’s helmet designs.
Around the chin of the helmet is printed the phrase “Misano ci dà una mano”. This phrase is from an Italian advert and eventually became a well-know phrase, roughly translated it means ‘Misano give us a hand’ or more simply ‘Misano helps you’.
