Valentino Rossi Soleluna 2016 AGV Pista GP R helmet

Valentino Rossi Soleluna 2016 AGV Pista GP R helmet

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 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 Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna helmet

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.

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna Qatar 2015 Helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna Qatar 2015 Helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna Qatar 2015 Helmet

This is the AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Soleluna helmet that Rossi wore for the opening round of the 2015 season in Qatar. It is slightly different in design to the regular SoleLuna helmet that would become his design of choice for the rest of the season.

The SoleLuna Qatar design doesn’t have the Monster Energy logo, and some of the colours used are darker than the other SoleLuna designs.

As usual, the design was created by long-time Rossi helmet designer, Aldo Drudi and it uses the familiar Valentino Rossi ‘Sun and Moon’ motifs to great effect. The front of the helmet is taken up by the sun, with its rays cascading back towards the rear of the helmet, which features a dark crescent moon.

This design, coupled with the sharp AGV Pista shape, really gives an aggressive look to the helmet.

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Project 46 2.0 Helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Project 46 2.0 Helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Project 46 2.0 Helmet

This is the brand new and updated version of the Pista Valentino Rossi Project 46 helmet. This new version of the AGV Pista GP Project 46 2.0 is the natural successor of the bestselling Pista GP Project 46 and updates the original model with a Matt finish, a shell made from full carbon, and a design that was created for racing.

The Pista GP was first developed during Rossi’s years at Ducati, and it has since evolved into the premier AGV model that is used by many professional racers using AGV helmets.

Valentino Rossi Project 46 Helmet

The actual graphic design on the helmet is identical to the original Pista helmet.

This is about as good a helmet as you can get, but be warned, it is at the expensive end of the scale. The specs for the Pista GP is above and beyond what you would need for everyday road use, and this is a helmet that really comes alive at high speed and on the track. A full carbon fiber helmet specifically designed for racing and the track and developed with AGV Extreme Standards Helmets project and Valentino Rossi, the Pista GP is one of the most innovative helmets ever released by AGV.

AGV Pista GP:

The AGV STANDARDS project, established in 2009 with Valentino Rossi as its leading rider, is ready to get on the track with the first AGV PistaGP helmet. The Pista GP sets new performance standards with its wide field of vision, low weight and compact dimensions, extensive ventilation, exclusive ergonomic design and class-leading aerodynamics.

Development of the Pista GP began by taking measurements of riders’ heads with a digital scanner. These measurements were then used to design the helmet from the “inside out”. 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 EXTREME STANDARDS HELMETS use FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) to set new standards in safety, comfort and ergonomics. In addition to new levels of safety, the AGV Pista GP sets new standards in environmental protection with the raw materials and new technologies used in production having a focus on low environmental impact.

Features:

  • The residual impact force transmitted to the head is reduced by 36% compared to the limit established by ECE regulations.
  • The HIC index is 48% below the limit established by ECE regulations.
  • The basic visor movement area has been reduced by 71% compared to the GP-Tech helmet. This allows use of the space saved to increase the thickness of the absorption material, benefiting safety.

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Hand Print helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Hand Print helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Hand Print helmet

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’.

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Project 46 Helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Project 46 Helmet

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Project 46 Helmet

This is the AGV Pista GP – the new premium range helmet from AGV that is being used by AGV sponsored MotoGP riders. This model was named ‘Project 46’ and it is the same design that Rossi wore when testing out the Pista helmet in 2012.

The AGV Pista was first seen during the MotoGP winter tests in 2012, when Rossi was on the Ducati Desmosedici GP12. The helmet wasn’t in production at that point and it didn’t have an official name – it was simply called ‘Project 46’.

The new design is said to be the most aerodynamic yet from AGV, and the helmet also has the greatest field of vision of all their helmets. The helmet was created in conjunction with feedback from Valentino Rossi, in fact, in many ways the helmet was built for Valentino Rossi in a way that no other previous helmet has – AGV took biometric scans of Rossi’s head and face, to ensure an optimal fit. In fact all AGV racers now have the same biometric scanning to ensure they have custom fits that are optimized for their heads.

Much was written about the new helmet when Rossi first tested it – it looked sleek and aggressive, and had a design that looked like it had come straight from the designers blueprints. It was Matt Black, with ‘Project 46’ printed in yellow down the side. The sides and top of the helmet had various measurements and markings detailing some of the improvements in the helmet design – example: ‘air flow +193%

Valentino Rossi Project 46 Helmet

Talking about the increased field of vision, Valentino Rossi was quoted as stating that it was like “like switching from TV to cinema.“.

This ‘next generation’ helmet is now on the production line and available for purchase. Obviously you won’t get your own biometric scan, but the AGV Pista has all the cutting edge features that professional racers enjoy, including increased air flow and a much greater field of vision (increased by +15° compared to past AGV helmets).

AGV claim that the Pista has an ‘exclusive’ ergonomic design that makes the ‘Project 46’ 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.

This is the official launch video for the Pista helmet range from AGV, which shows how the Pista was designed in conjunction with feedback from Valentino Rossi – the video also shows how they scanned Rossi’s head to ensure an optimal ergonomic shape for racers.
