AGV are digging back into their deep history with Valentino Rossi for this race replica helmet. This design is based on the graphics that Valentino Rossi wore on his helmet for the Brazil and Sepang 500cc races during 2001. Valentino had secured the World Title by the time the paddock reached Brazil and Sepang, and to celebrate Valentino had Aldo Drudi create this new design.
The design is a variation on Valentino’s primary helmet design for that season, with the Sun placed at the front above the visor, and the Moon positioned on the rear, but the Sun and Moon have been given a graphical overhaul and now have a tribal style to them.
This a a beautiful Valentino Rossi throwback helmet replica, and it is very affordable now that it is available in the AGV K3 range.
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.
