AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Turtle Helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Turtle Helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Turtle Helmet

The is the AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi ‘turtle’ helmet replica. It is also known as the ‘Tartaruga’ helmet, and it was worn by Valentino for the 2013 Mugello MotoGP.

2013 was the year that Valentino returned to Yamaha after a couple of unsuccessful seasons at Ducati. Rossi’s return to Yamaha was celebrated by the factory, but his initial performances on the bike Yamaha M1 at the start of the season were not up to the standards of his teammate Jorge Lorenzo. Rossi was solid enough, but he was struggling to break into the top 3 on a regular basis.

When the Mugello round came up on the calendar Rossi decided to poke fun at his lack of speed compared with Lorenzo, Pedrosa, and Marquez with this turtle helmet design.

The helmet design was created by Aldo Drudi and features a giant cartoon turtle which is perched on the top of the helmet, with big cartoon eyes facing ahead, just above the visor. The rear of the helmet featured Rossi’s two bulldogs and the usual number 46. In addition to the insinuation that the turtle is a slow animal, the helmet also has four small people on the sides chasing each other. The figure at the back is yellow, so therefore indicates that it is Rossi, who is chasing to keep up with the Orange, Blue and Red figures – representing Lorenzo, Marquez, and Pedrosa.

The turtle also has a deeper meaning for Valentino Rossi and when he was a child racing Minimoto, Rossi used to have a stuffed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle stuck to the top of his helmet, and his fascination with the animal also led to him having a tattoo of the turtle done on his hip.

This is a bright and fun Rossi race replica which was originally made available as a limited edition in the more expensive AGV Corsa range, which has since sold out in most places. So it is great that AGV have now added it to their much more affordable AGV K3 SV range, which makes it much more available to the average rider who wants a great looking race replica for everyday street use without breaking the bank account.

Valentino Rossi raced with the 5 Continents as his primary helmet design during the 2009 and 2012 MotoGP seasons, before he left Yamaha for Ducati, at which point he changed his helmet graphics to the ‘Elements‘ design.

The 5 Continents design was created by Aldo Drudi and it features a large and colourful Sun on the front of the helmet, and the rays of the sun radiate back to the rear of the helmet and down the sides. Each ray of the sun contains unique artwork that represents each of the 5 continents that the MotoGP paddock visits during each season.

The rear of the helmet features the usual Valentino Rossi moon logo, filled with stars.

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2012 Helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2012 Helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2012 Helmet

This is the Valentino Rossi design that he wore during the MotoGP Winter test session in 2012. The helmet is available in two colour variations, blue and black.

This is a stunning looking Valentino Rossi lid (especially the blue version), and the design has a very personal meaning for Rossi and Yamaha. After a couple of unsuccessful years at Ducati, Valentino Rossi returned to Yamaha, the team where he had felt most at home, until Jorge Lorenzo became his team-mate and tensions grew between the two riders.

The helmet features the number 46 in a prominent place at the top of the helmet and the usual Sun and Moon logos are seen on either side, but it is the rear of the helmet design that holds the most interest. A Japanese character for the word ‘Kendo’ is placed at the rear of the helmet. ‘Kendo’ is used in Japan as a word to convey a very intense and great emotion. The symbol used on this helmet design was created by Masao Furusawa’s wife. Furusawa is the chief of engineering operations at Yamaha and he was instrumental in bring Rossi to Yamaha the first time round, and it is from Furusawa that Rossi first heard of ‘Kendo’

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi WTF helmet (Misano 2011)

AGV K3 Valentino Rossi WTF helmet (Misano 2011)

AGV K3 Valentino Rossi WTF helmet (Misano 2011)

AGV have reached for a classic and memorable Valentino Rossi helmet design for this new entry in their AGV K3 SV range.

This is the Valentino Rossi ‘WTF’ helmet design that was worn for the Misano 2011 MotoGP.

This helmet is also sometimes referred to as the ‘Comic’ or the ‘Expletive’ helmet.

The actual design was a humorous insight into Valentino Rossi’s mindset during his troubled seasons at Ducati. Rossi had failed to get the Ducati working as well as expected and his frustration with the bike was reflected in the design that he brought to his home round of Misano. The Sun and Moon motifs are relegated to the lower sides of the helmet, and the entire top of the helmet is used for a comic-style thought bubble that is filled with swear-words and exclamations. The rear of the helmet has the number 46 and an image of Rossi’s two Bulldogs.

On the day of the race Valentino was far more political and stated that the swear words were simply a reflection of what went through his mind during a race.

Whichever version of the meaning behind the design that you choose to believe, there is no denying that this is one of the most eye-catching and memorable of Valentino Rossi’s helmet designs.

Valentino Rossi Misano 2011

The Valentino Rossi WTF helmet was first released as a Limited Edition in the AGV GP-Tech range, but now it is available in the affordable AGV K3 SV range. The K3 SV range is one of AGV’s more affordable ranges and is optimized for everyday road use, despite the fact that it also has many premium features included that you get on the premium AGV ranges like the Pista GP.

The AGV K3 SV is latest upgrade to the previous K3 model, the main difference being that it comes with an internal sun visor (hence the ‘SV’ used in the name of the model). For an aggressive looking race replica helmt the K3 SV offers great airflow, a light mold, and a large field of vision.

Official description of the AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi WTF Misano helmet:

The AGV K3 SV Helmet builds on AGV’s extensive experience in designing the Pista GP and Corsa helmets as well as the legacy of the original K3 helmet. An aerodynamic shell shape is optimized for stability and aggressive aesthetics and features an integrated, compact rear spoiler to reduce turbulence. The narrow chin bar is streamlined to help the helmet cut through the wind at high speeds, further increasing stability.

The AGV K3 SV helmet incorporates a drop-down sun visor, making the helmet a tour de force, aggressive street or touring helmet. The K3 is also communication-ready and features speaker pocket cut outs to minimize discomfort caused by Bluetooth speakers pressing into your ears. The AGV K-3 SV Helmet is an excellent choice for any rider who values sophisticated, modern design in a safe and feature-rich package.

Features:

  • HIR-TH (High Resistance Thermoplastic Resin) shell construction
  • 2 shell sizes
  • 4 EPS sizes optimized using the FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) system
  • Ventilation system was designed and optimized in a wind tunnel
  • 4 front vents (3 at the forehead and one on the chin guard) and 2 rear extractors vents

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Imola 98 helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Imola 98 helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Imola 98 helmet

This is the AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi replica Imola 98 helmet. AGV have dug deep into their history for the revival of this classic design.

This design was used in 1998 when Valentino Rossi was competing in the 205cc Class at Imola. Valentino’s bike livery was based on the Italian Tricolore design of green, white and red, and the helmet matched the design of the bike.

The design was by Aldo Drudi, and it is pretty unique in the canon of Rossi helmet designs in the sense that it features colors you don’t usually see on Valentino Rossi’s helmets. The helmet has the usual Sun and Moon logo on either side in big bold graphics and the rear of the helmet features a collection of flowers. The helmet has a green base on one side, a red base on the opposite, and a white band that runs through the middle separating the two halves.

Valentino Rossi 205cc Imola

This is a beautiful and unique Valentino Rossi helmet design.

And the fact that it is now available in the AGV K3 SV range makes it even more appealing for riders wanted to pick up an affordable race replica helmet, without compromising on the quality (or breaking the bank). The AGV K3 SV range is the new and updated entry level range from AGV which is ideal for everyday road use.

The AGV K3 SV is pretty much the same as the very popular K3 model, but with the added advantage of coming with an internal sun visor. For an aggressive looking helmet the K3 SV offers great airflow, a light mold, and a large field of vision.

Official Description of the AGV K3 Valentino Rossi Imola helmet:

The AGV K3 SV is an exciting addition to the street/road collection of AGV helmets. This is a helmet to suit many riders: from the first time biker who wants a quality lid from day one, through to the more mature biker who is interested in balancing safety and performance on a budget. At such a sensible price, the AGV K3 SV really is an impressive lid.

The K-3 SV was developed from the experience AGV gained during the design process of the Pista GP and Corsa helmets. Thanks to the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEM), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. This helmet has a wide appeal and is suitable for young riders with a passion for racing as well as for more mature riders looking for comfort and high performance characteristics.

Thanks to CFD Analysis (Computational fluid dynamics), the special ventilation system provides maximum airflow to the head through two front and side vents, one central vent and two extractors at the back of the helmet.

The sanitized Dry-Comfort internal components can be removed for washing. The mechanism for opening and closing the visor has three customisable settings according to helmet use (Touring, Race and City) and features the XQRS system for quick removal.

The K-3 SV has been designed to accept the new integrated communication platform.

K3 SV Valentino Rossi Dreamtime Helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Dreamtime helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Dreamtime helmet

This is the stunning Valentino Rossi ‘Dreamtime’ helmet design which is now available in the new AGV K3 SV range.

The Dreamtime design is definitely at the arty end of the spectrum when it comes to Rossi’s helmet designs – there are no cartoons, and no jokes or humour being poked at on this helmet, it is simply a beautiful Aldo Drudi design that use Aboriginal art as its inspiration.

The layout of the design is very similar to the Gothic design, where Valentino Rossi’s usual icons of a Sun and a Moon are positioned on either side of the helmet. Despite this similarity, the aesthetics are worlds apart, and the Sun and Moon are given a totally different treatment that is created in an intricate design that is full of detail and colour.

Rossi first debuted the Dreamtime helmet design in 2007 during the MotoGP test sessions that were held in Australia, and he also wore it for some races in the 2008 MotoGP season.

This is a beautiful design, and we are really pleased it is being made available in the AGV K3 SV range as you see lots of Rossi replica helmets on the roads, but the Dreamtime design is a rare one. That will probably change now that it is available in the affordable end of the AGV helmet range, so make sure you are at least one of the first out there with it!

The Dreamtime helmet was available for a short period in the AGV K3 range, but that has since been discontinued in favour of teh new AGV K3 SV model.

So what is the difference between the AGV K3 and the AGV K3 SV?: Not that much has changed. The K3 is phasing out in favour of the K3 SV which is basically the same model but with the addition of a built-in sun visor, hence the ‘SV’ lettering in the model name. Everything else that riders love about the K3 (price, quality, aggressive design, etc…) remain intact.

Dreamtime Valentino Rossi

The K3 SV is basically the ideal solution for a cost conscious rider – it is the entry level end of teh AGV range, but to be hinest, their definition of ‘entry level’ has a pretty high bar, with many features on the K3 SV that you find on the premium AGV ranges. It allows a rider to get a race style helmet that is suitable for everyday use that also has great performance at high speeds.

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Elements helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Elements helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Elements helmet

This is the AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Elements helmet.

The SV is the updated entry in the K3 range – the affordable, entry level helmet from AGV. This is the ‘Elements’ design that Valentino Rossi first wore when he joined Ducati for his ill-fated 2 year stint for the Italian team. The design was first released in the GP-tech range, and it is now available in the much more reasonably priced K3 SV range.

The graphics were created by Aldo Drudi, and it is based on Rossi’s long-standing Sun & Moon motif, whilst incorporating the four elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire into the design.

The front of the helmet features a bold sun, with the rays spreading back towards the rear of the helmet. Each of the rays is filled with an image representing the elements, water, fire earth, and wind. The rear of the helmet features a crescent moon with the number ’46’ positioned in the middle of it. It is an eye-catching and colourful design.

Despite being the helmet design that Rossi wore for some of his least successful seasons in MotoGP, the Elements graphic design is still one of the most popular Valentino Rossi helmet designs, so it is great to see it available in AGV K3 SV range.

Valentino Rossi Ducati

So what is the difference between the AGV K3 and the AGV K3 SV?: Not that much has changed. The K3 is phasing out in favour of the K3 SV which is basically the same model but with the addition of a built-in sun visor, hence the ‘SV’ lettering in the model name. Everything else that riders love about the K3 (price, quality, aggressive design, etc…) remain intact.

The fact that the K3 SV is the cheapest model in the AGV range should not cause too much concern, as it is still a high-quality helmet that is great for everyday street and road riding. The fact that it looks sleek and aggressive and you can get genuine race replica designs is simply an added bonus and a cost effective way to get a great looking lid. There is a reason why the AGV K3 SV is selling helmets by AGV, thousands of riders can’t be wrong.

Official Description for the AGV K3 SV Elements helmet:

The K-3 SV was developed from the experience AGV gained during the design process of the Pista GP and Corsa helmets. Thanks to the use of FEM (Finite Element Analysis), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. This helmet has a wide appeal and is suitable for young riders with a passion for racing as well as for more mature riders looking for comfort and high performance characteristics. The modern aerodynamic design of the shell has the same characteristics as the most recent AGV models.

  • SHELL HIR-TH (High Resistant ThermoPlastic Resin) outer shell. The K-3 SV is available in XS to XXL sizes with two differing outer shell sizes.
  • VENTILATION The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) was designed using CFD analysis and features ducts hollowed into the shell for improved air circulation inside the helmet and better aerodynamic efficiency. Two front air vents at the sides work with a new larger central vent to provide a constant flow of cool air inside the helmet. The rear extractors use ducts hollowed into the EPS to remove hot, moist air from inside the helmet.
  • VISOR The new GT 2 visor has been treated as standard with special scratch resistant and anti-fog processes. It also offers 100% protection against UV rays. The new visor edge on this model offers a better seal and protection from draughts and noise. The visor also features a new micro-opening system which is easily operated from a button on the chin guard. The K-3 SV also comes with an anti-fog, scratch-resistant, tinted, internal sun visor that can be removed for cleaning and replacement without the use of tools.
  • INNER LINERS The inner liners can be removed and washed and are made from a sanitised Dry-Comfort fabric to prevent the formation of bacteria and the onset of allergies. This fabric contributes to the rapid dispersal of dampness from the skin, the absorption of excess sweat and ensures the rider stays fresh even over long periods of time.
  • FUNCTIONALITY/SAFETY The mechanism for opening and closing the visor has three customisable settings according to helmet use (Touring, Race and City) and features the XQRS system for quick removal. The retention system has a Double-D ring and an anti-theft ring. The K-3 SV comes ready for connection with the new SHARE communication platform.
