The 5 Continents design is an enduring Valentino Rossi classic and was worn as his primary MotoGP helmet between the 2009 to 2012 seasons. Previously it was only available as a high-end limited edition, but AGV have made this iconic design available in their K3 and K3 SV ranges which is positioned as the upper end of their entry level helmet range meaning it is very affordable. The SV range improves on the best-selling AGV K3 helmet by adding a built in sun visor.
As with all Valentino Rossi helmets, this design was created by Aldo Drudi and it is based on Valentino’s long-standing Sun and Moon logos, with a fiery sun at the front positioned above the visor with the sun-rays cascading back towards the rear of the helmet, and a dark moon positioned at the rear.
The helmet is named ‘5 Continents’ as each of the Sun’s rays on the design contains imagery and artwork that represent each of the five continents that MotoGP races take place on during a season.
The AGV K3 range is perfect everyday helmet as it includes in many premium features that AGV developed in their high end ranges like the Pista GP, the GP-Tech, and the Corsa, and makes them a lot more flexible so they are better fitted for general road use. The K3 is an excellent helmet option for those riders who want a quality helmet from a trusted brand, and also want some slick looking race replica graphics without needing to pay excessive amounts just for the design. Basically 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 K-3 is near the top end of the entry level AGV range. GP-Tech lines and Valentino Rossi Replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for race fans.
Official description of the AGV K3 5 Continents helmet:
The K3 is AGV’s entry level full face helmet and is designed to offer a rider on a budget the experience of owning a premium product. The AGV K3 has a very high specification and is packed with features such as a quick release micro-metric buckle and a clear, anti-scratch & anti-fog polycarbonate Street 8 visor.
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 turbulence inside the helmet.
The K3 uses AGV’s proven HIR-TH (high resistant thermoplastic) resin shell construction, this shell is very strong and has excellent shock absorbing properties, however the manufacturing process is much quicker and simpler than an equivalent fibreglass shell. This ultimately is reflected in the price of the helmet enabling riders on a budget to have an exceptionally safe and well made product at the fraction of the price you would expect to pay for a premium branded helmet.
