This is the Valentino Rossi 5 Continents helmet, which is available in the AGV K3 and the newer AGV K3 SV range (which comes with a built-in sun visor).
The 5 Continents is a classic Valentino Rossi helmet design, it is colourful, intricate, and visually stunning. Definitely one of Rossi’s most recognizable MotoGP helmets.
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.
This is an incredible looking race lid, and it was originally released in the high end GP-Tech range, but now it is available in the much more affordable K3 range.
The AGV K3 range is a real rider’s favorite as it pull sin some of the more premium features that AGV developed in their high end ranges like the Pista GP, the GP-Tech, and the Corse, and makes them a lot more forgiving so they are more fitting with everyday road use. The K3 is a superb entry level helmet from AGV who have a high quality bar, so despite being affordable you won’t be compromising on quality.
The AGV K3 is also a great way to get an official lid with race replica graphics without needing to remortgage your house to get one.

The only full-face thermoplastic model in the AGV range, the K-3 is the perfect choice for riders in search of a safe, high-quality helmet with attractive design at a modest price.
The K-3 is one of the classical top selling helmets by AGV. Its design derives from the top of the range GP-Tech helmets, bringing most of the latest advanced features on this reasonably priced product. The race helmet-inspired-line maximizes the airflow minimizing noise levels, while the back spoiler assures stability at high speeds. The ventilation system features three frontal intakes, and six back and side extractors, while a chin wind protector avoid turbulences inside the helmet.
