This is probably one of the most complete Valentino Rossi replica helmets that you can buy. What do we mean by that? Well, for one it is in AGV Pista GP range, which is the model that Valentino currently races with, and secondly, the graphics are the latest SoleLuna design which are the same that Rossi has recently been using as his primary helmet design. This helmet was also produced complete with Monster Energy logos, which is pretty rare on replica race helmets.
The Sole Luna design has been Valentino’s primary helmet design for the last couple of MotoGP seasons, and it utilizes Valentino’s Sun and Moon logos to glorious and colourful effect. Designed by Aldo Drudi, the Sun is placed at the front of the helmet with the rays flowing towards the rear of the helmet where they intersect with a blue Moon.
The chin features the Monster Energy logo, and the sides of the helmet also have the green Monster Energy claws, positioned next to Rossi’s race number 46 (if you get the Limited Edition version, if not you can always add your own Monster Energy stickers/transfers in the required positions as they are cheap to pick up online.).
This is a beautiful looking helmet.
This is a no holds barred race helmet and is optimised for speeds over 200mph – it is the same helmet that Valentino Rossi wears
Unique shape making it aerodynamic and the spoiler minimises the lift at high speed making the helmet very stable at high speeds.
Official Description of the AGV Pista Soleluna 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).
Watch the video of how the AGV Pista GP helmet was developed with Valentino Rossi:
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.
