AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Imola helmet (1998)

AGV have dug back into their longstanding relationship with Valentino Rossi and have pulled out another classic helmet design and made it available as a race replica in their bestselling and affordable AGV K3 SV range – this time the design is from 1998 and Rossi’s 250cc days.

This helmet design was worn by Rossi as part of a full bike livery which saw his Aprilia RSV250 decked out in a red, white, and green Italian Tricolore colour scheme for the 250cc Imola race.

The design was an adaptation of his primary racing helmet from that year, with the famous Sun and Moon motif placed on either side of the helmet. The helmet was split into 3 colours (red, white, and green) and the back of the helmet featured a pile of coloured flowers. A red number 46 sits at the top of the helmet.

This is a very striking helmet in colours that you don’t often see on Valentino Rossi race replicas – there is a distinct lack of yellow for starters!

Valentino Rossi Imola 1998

Official Description of the AGV K3 Valentino Rossi Imola helmet:

The AGV K3 SV is an exciting addition to the street/road collection of AGV helmets. This is a helmet to suit many riders: from the first time biker who wants a quality lid from day one, through to the more mature biker who is interested in balancing safety and performance on a budget. At such a sensible price, the AGV K3 SV really is an impressive lid.

The K-3 SV was developed from the experience AGV gained during the design process of the Pista GP and Corsa helmets. Thanks to the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEM), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. This helmet has a wide appeal and is suitable for young riders with a passion for racing as well as for more mature riders looking for comfort and high performance characteristics.

Thanks to CFD Analysis (Computational fluid dynamics), the special ventilation system provides maximum airflow to the head through two front and side vents, one central vent and two extractors at the back of the helmet.

The sanitized Dry-Comfort internal components can be removed for washing. The mechanism for opening and closing the visor has three customisable settings according to helmet use (Touring, Race and City) and features the XQRS system for quick removal.

The K-3 SV has been designed to accept the new integrated communication platform.

Features:

  • 2 sizes of HIR-TH shell (High Resistance Thermoplastic Resin)
  • Inner shell in EPS in 4 sizes; shell and EPS dimensions optimised using the FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) system
  • Homologation: ECE 2205, DOT, JIS, NBR, AS/NZS

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2012 Helmet (‘Kendo’)

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2012 Helmet ('Kendo')

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2012 Helmet ('Kendo')

This is another great decision by AGV – releasing the Valentino Rossi 2012 Winter test helmet into the affordable K3 SV range. Previously this design had only been made available as a limited edition in the Corsa range, but now it is available in both the colours that Rossi used (blue and black) in the bestselling AGV K3 SV helmet range.

Got to say, the black one is nice, but it is the blue one that we fell in love with here – its a very simple design with lots of meaning. The helmet features a large 46 above the visor on the front of the helmet, and the rear features the Japanese symbol for ‘Kendo’. This helmet was used when Rossi returned to Yamaha, and in Japan the word Kendo is associated with a deep and powerful emotional feeling. It was an effective way to sum up how Valentino felt returning to Yamaha after a poor couple of season with Ducati.

This design also gives more choice to Rossi fans who may not want one of the colourful and cartoonish helmet designs that are used as common choices for replicas – this is a mature but striking design.

Official description of the AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Winter Test helmet 2012:

The K-3 SV was developed with the experience gained during the design process of the Pista GP, Corsa and GT Veloce.

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Turtle Helmet (Tartaruga)

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Turtle Helmet (Tartaruga)

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Turtle Helmet (Tartaruga)

One good thing about AGV making Valentino Rossi race replicas available in their entry and mid-level helmet ranges is that you get the chance to pick up some really iconic (and official) Valentino Rossi designs at an affordable price.

And now it is the turn of the Turtle, or ‘Tartaruga’, design that Valentino wore for the 2013 Mugello MotoGP. This helmet was originally released as a limited edition in the expensive AGV Corsa range, but now it is available in the bestselling AGV K3 SV range. The K3 is an upper ‘entry level’ helmet that takes many of its features from AGV’s premium helmet ranges, but comes in at around $/£200….even with official Valentino Rossi graphics.

The turtle design was inspired by Rossi’s first racing mascot from his childhood – a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle that he stuck on his helmet when he raced at Mini Moto. The helmet pays tribute to this by featuring a cartoon turtle positioned on top of his helmet. The rear of the helmet also contains a message as 4 stick figures can be seen. These stick figures represent Marquez, Lorenzo, and Pedrosa, with a yellow stick figure (Rossi) running to catch up with them – this was an acknowledgement by Rossi that he hadn’t been fast enough to stay with the top 3 so far in the season, and had to up his game to break into the top positions.

This is a beautiful looking helmet with a fun and memorable Rossi design.

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Elements helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Elements helmet

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Elements helmet

This is the Valentino Rossie ‘Elements’ helmet that is now available in the AGV K3 SV range. Initially this popular design was only available in AGV’s high-end and expensive helmet ranges, but now it hits the bestselling and very affordable K3 SV range.

The Elements helmet was Valentino’s primary design during his years at Ducati and it is a colourful Aldo Drudi design that features the four elements of Fire, Wind, Water, and Earth. Each element is represented within the rays of the Sun that is positioned at the front of the helmet. The rear of the helmet features Valentino Rossi’s Moon motif.

This is a bold, striking, and colourful design that looks incredible.

Valentino Rossi Ducati

The AGV K3 SV range is a bestselling mid-range helmet from AGV and it comes loaded with many premium features that you also find on their high-spec helmets. It comes with a built-in sun visor, and now that the Valentino Rossi designs are being made available in the K3 SV range it means riders can get an official Rossi race replica without breaking the bank (K3’s can be found around the $/£ 200 mark).

Official Description for the AGV K3 SV Elements helmet:

The K-3 SV was developed from the experience AGV gained during the design process of the Pista GP and Corsa helmets. Thanks to the use of FEM (Finite Element Analysis), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. This helmet has a wide appeal and is suitable for young riders with a passion for racing as well as for more mature riders looking for comfort and high performance characteristics. The modern aerodynamic design of the shell has the same characteristics as the most recent AGV models.

SHELL HIR-TH (High Resistant ThermoPlastic Resin) outer shell. The K-3 SV is available in XS to XXL sizes with two differing outer shell sizes.

VENTILATION The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) was designed using CFD analysis and features ducts hollowed into the shell for improved air circulation inside the helmet and better aerodynamic efficiency. Two front air vents at the sides work with a new larger central vent to provide a constant flow of cool air inside the helmet. The rear extractors use ducts hollowed into the EPS to remove hot, moist air from inside the helmet.

VISOR The new GT 2 visor has been treated as standard with special scratch resistant and anti-fog processes. It also offers 100% protection against UV rays. The new visor edge on this model offers a better seal and protection from draughts and noise. The visor also features a new micro-opening system which is easily operated from a button on the chin guard. The K-3 SV also comes with an anti-fog, scratch-resistant, tinted, internal sun visor that can be removed for cleaning and replacement without the use of tools.

INNER LINERS The inner liners can be removed and washed and are made from a sanitised Dry-Comfort fabric to prevent the formation of bacteria and the onset of allergies. This fabric contributes to the rapid dispersal of dampness from the skin, the absorption of excess sweat and ensures the rider stays fresh even over long periods of time.

FUNCTIONALITY/SAFETY The mechanism for opening and closing the visor has three customisable settings according to helmet use (Touring, Race and City) and features the XQRS system for quick removal. The retention system has a Double-D ring and an anti-theft ring. The K-3 SV comes ready for connection with the new SHARE communication platform.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2013 (Limited Edition)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2013 (Limited Edition)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2013 (Limited Edition)

This is the Valentio Rossi winter test helmet from 2013, which AGV have now made available as a limited edition replica in the AGV Corsa range.

This helmet has a clean and understated design, especially when compared with other winter test helmets that Rossi has worn in the past that have been bright and laced with humour. The serious look of the helmet design is in line with the circumstances it was worn in – Rossi had just returned to Yamaha after a couple of poor years at Ducati and the rear of the helmet features a single Japanese character to represent the word ‘Kendo’ which is used in Japan to express intense emotion. The helmet also featured a yellow 46 at the front of the helmet, above the visor and a metallic grey Sun and Moon are positioned on either side of the black helmet.

Simple, bold, and effective.

Valentino Rossi Winter test 2013

Official description of the AGV Valentino Rossi Corsa helmet:

The Corsa has the performance of the Pista GP and the characteristics of a helmet for road use.

The carbon-fibre/glass-fibre/aramid SSL (Super Super Light) shell was designed using FEM techniques (Finite Elements Analysis) and features EPS internal ducts in the shell to provide a small, light helmet which is both comfortable and extremely safe. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1350 g (refers to MS size ECE 2205 version).

Unlike the Pista GP, the Corsa comes with a system for opening and closing the air vents which makes it a less extreme, more versatile helmet. 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 Corsa 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 Corsa 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 Corsa fit the different cranial shapes as never before.

Built in conjunction with Valentino Rossi and tested at the highest levels. The Corsa is not a full carbon fiber shell but the shell shape, aerodynamics, ventilation and eye-port improvements will be shared cross platform with the Pista GP Helmet.

Key improvements of the Corsa compared to the GP Tech:

  • Weight savings over the GP-Tech to be announced
  • 193% more ventilation surface area
  • 71% smaller visor movement area
  • 48% less HIC index standard (Head Injury Criterion)
  • 44% less lift 36% less g-force transmitted to the head (compared to the ECE regulation)

Features:

  • Shell: SSL (Super Super Light) in composite fiber, aramid & Carbon Fiber
  • Number of Shells: 4 shell sizes
  • Ventilation System: IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with wide ducts hollowed into the shell
  • Interior: Breathable Lycra® micro-porous lining and Dry-comfort fabric with sanitizing treatment
  • Interior: Fully removable and washable inner liners of CoolMax fabric
  • Face shield: RACE 2 flat, non-scratch shield with wide field of vision and suitable for tear-offs
  • Shield Mechanism: XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) in metal with roto-translation opening
  • Quick Release Shield: For tool-free removal and replacement of the visor in seconds
  • Retention System: Double D
  • Safety Certification: DOT and SHARP 5 Star

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi WTF helmet (Misano 2011)

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi WTF helmet (Misano 2011)

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi WTF helmet (Misano 2011)

This is another classic Valentino Rossi Misano helmet design – this time AGV have used the 2011 Misano MotoGP as inspiration for the latest Valentino Rossi race replica in their bestselling K3 SV range.

This helmet design is sometimes referred to as the ‘WTF!’ or ‘Expletive’ design, and one glance at the helmet will tell you why.

The helmet was designed by Aldo Drudi and Rossi stated that the helmet gave an insight to his mindset while he was racing. It was also speculated that the helmet was an insight into Valentino’s frustrations that he was having during his unsuccessful time at Ducati since his highly publicized move to the factory. The helmet is bright yellow and features a thought bubble emerging out from behind the visor – the bubble is filled with comic symbols and icons depicting swear words.

Valentino Rossi Misano 2011

This is an eye-catching helmet and goes down as one of the funniest Valentino Rossi helmet designs of recent years. The helmet was originally made available in very limited numbers in the GP-tech range which sold out very quickly, so it is great to see it being made available in the much more affordable K3 range.

Official description of the AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi WTF Misano helmet:

The AGV K3 SV Helmet builds on AGV’s extensive experience in designing the Pista GP and Corsa helmets as well as the legacy of the original K3 helmet. An aerodynamic shell shape is optimized for stability and aggressive aesthetics and features an integrated, compact rear spoiler to reduce turbulence. The narrow chin bar is streamlined to help the helmet cut through the wind at high speeds, further increasing stability.

The AGV K3 SV helmet incorporates a drop-down sun visor, making the helmet a tour de force, aggressive street or touring helmet. The K3 is also communication-ready and features speaker pocket cut outs to minimize discomfort caused by Bluetooth speakers pressing into your ears. The AGV K-3 SV Helmet is an excellent choice for any rider who values sophisticated, modern design in a safe and feature-rich package.

Features:

  • HIR-TH (High Resistance Thermoplastic Resin) shell construction
  • 2 shell sizes
  • 4 EPS sizes optimized using the FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) system
  • Ventilation system was designed and optimized in a wind tunnel
  • 4 front vents (3 at the forehead and one on the chin guard) and 2 rear extractors vents
  • XQRS (X-tra Quick Release System) visor mechanism for tool-free removal and replacement of the face shield in seconds
  • Face shield mechanism features PVS (Perimetrical Visor Seal) for improved seal and protection against drafts and wind noise
  • GT 2 scratch-resistant, anti-fog polycarbonate face shield with 100% protection from UV rays
  • GT 2 face shield has improved peripheral vision thanks to the specially-shaped profile of the aperture
  • Integrated drop-down Sun Visor (ISV) is scratch-resistant and can be replaced easily and without special tools
  • Removable breath deflector
  • Removable windproof chin strap protection
  • Fully removable and washable 3D inner liner and cheek pads are sanitized and made from Dry-Comfort fabrics
  • Helmet profile contoured around the base to reduce the risk of collar bone injuries
  • Double-D ring chin strap
  • ECE 2205 and DOT approved
  • Weight: 1520g in MS size

The AGV K3 SV is probably the cheapest way to get an authentic Valentino Rossi race replica helmet from a respected and reliable brand and helmet manufacturer.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Turtle helmet (Mugello 2013)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Turtle helmet (Mugello 2013)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Turtle helmet (Mugello 2013)

This another fun Valentino Rossi race replica, this time AGV have used the ‘Turtle’ design, also known as ‘Tartaruga’ to create a Limited Edition helmet in their AGV Crsa range.

As per usual, Valentino had a new helmet design created for the Mugello MotoGP in 2013 and he used an animal that he has a lot of history with for inspiration. He had Aldo Drudi create a one-off helmet with a cartoon turtle sat on the top of the helmet, looking forwards over the visor.

The turtle was chosen as Rossi used to race with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle stuck to his helmet when he was a child and racing MiniMoto races. In many ways the turtle is the original Valentino Rossi logo, as it pre-dates the Sun and Moon.Valentino also has a small turtle tattoo placed on the top of one of his hips.

There was another meaning behind the helmet, and if you look closely you will see 4 stick figures on the bottom of the helmet, a yellow figure (Rossi) is chasing a blue, a red, and an orange figure who are all supposed to represent Lorenzo, Pedrosa, and Marquez. This was intended as a signal that Rossi had to work harder to catch up with the three fastest riders and that his current form up to this point in the 2013 season was not up to scratch and he was slow like a turtle.

Valentino Rossi Tartaruga

The rear of the helmet features Rossi’s two bulldogs, both with turtle shells on their backs.

This is a fun and striking Rossi replica helmet that looks distinctive on the street.

Official description of the Valentino Rossi “Tartaruga Mugello 2013” Turtle helmet:

The Corsa is a supersport helmet which combines the performance of the Pista GP with road-going characteristics such as adjustable ventilation and improved comfort without having to forget the performance standards of the GP version.

Fitted with a double-D retention system, the outer shell is made up of SSL layers (Aramid and glass fibers) and is available in four sizes. The design is intended to cut to the minimum any interference with the racing suit and protective hump and to optimize safety even at high speed.

The spoiler has been designed to detach from the helmet in the event of an accident to increase the passive safety of the helmet. The visor component area has been reduced by 71% compared with the GP Tech and this allows the space saved to be used to increase the thickness of the impact absorption material with all the safety benefits that brings. The visor can easily be removed as can the washable inner components. To provide improved comfort, the surfaces in direct contact with the head are seamless and the fit can be optimized with special additional padding to the cheeks and back of the neck. Designed to maximize comfort, ergonomics, safety and aerodynamics.

Made in Italy and protective of the environment: the Corsa is designed and made in Italy by highly qualified craftsmen using the very latest technology. These helmets are manufactured using the best technologies with great effort invested in protecting the environment. Waterjet technology is used to cut the carbon fiber shells, the painting system uses eco-compatible water-based paints and a dust suppression / residue treatment system is in operation throughout the entire factory.

Extreme Standards Helmets is the name of the revolutionary new range of AGV helmets which includes the Corsa. 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.

Features:

  • Shell: SSL (Super Super Light) in composite fiber, Aramid and carbon fiber.
  • Number of shells: 4 shell sizes.
  • Fabric: Breathable Lycra® lining and Shalimar® fabric with sanitizing treatment.
  • Liners: Fully removable and washable inner liners.
  • Ventilation system: IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with wide ducts hollowed into the shell.
  • Air vents with open / close mechanism.
  • Visor mechanism: XQRS (X-tra Quick Release System) in metal with roto-translation opening. Visor front micro-lock system that reduces the risk of accidental opening in the event of an accident. Quick release system for tool-free removal and replacement of the visor in seconds.
  • Race flat, Class 1 optical standards, non-scratch and anti-fog visor (4 layers) with wide field of vision suitable for tear-off strips.
  • Retention system: Double-D.
  • Removable nose guard.
  • Removable windproof chin strap protection.
  • Homologation: ECE 2205, AS / NZS, JIS, ECE / DOT.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Double Face Helmet – Winter test 2013

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Double Face Helmet - Winter test 2013

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Double Face Helmet - Winter test 2013

It’s not just the Italian MotoGP rounds where Valentino Rossi brings a new custom helmet design, very often Rossi will create new helmet graphics for the MotoGP winter test sessions. This is the ‘Double face’ design that Rossi wore for the 2013 winter tests which is now available as a limited edition in the AGV Corsa range.

The design was created as an optical illusion, and took his primary SoleLuna helmet design and flipped it round by 180 degrees – thus placing the Sun at the rear and the Moon at the front, however, Rossi went one step further and added a scan of his face looking through the visor at the rear of the helmet creating the illusion that Rossi’s was looking behind him.

The design was created by Aldo Drudi and this fun helmet also had a message that Rossi would be watching all the other riders closely as he tried to improve his pace and performance on the Yamaha after his return to the factory team.

Valentino Rossi winter test 2013

This one will be a real collectors item and is probably very unlikely to appear in one of AGV’s cheaper and open edition helmet ranges.This design is definitely one of the strangest Valentino Rossi helmet designs ever!

The Corsa is a great helmet, it is basically very close to AGV’s premium race spec helmet the Pista GP, but it dials down a few of the features to make them more usable for everyday road use. This is a race helmet at heart though and it has an impressive pedigree featuring many premium features.

Official description of the AGV Corsa Rossi Double Face helmet:

The all new AGV Corsa Helmet is constructed from SSL (Super-Super-Light) Carbon-Kevlar and is based on same helmet worn by the top class MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi (Pista GP).

With an all new shell shape and aerodynamically tested venting system hollowed directly in the shell, the AGV Corsa helmet longs to be at the track. The AGV Corsa has a Cool Max removable and washable interior with hygienic treatment.

It has a Double D retention system and a clear, flat, anti-scratch, Pinlock ready polycarbonate race 2 visor with XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) and tear-off system.

Features:

  • SSL (Super Super Light) composite fiber, Kevlar® and carbon fiber shell
  • Four shell sizes

  • 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
  • Breathable Lycra® micro-porous lining and Dry-Comfort® fabric with sanitizing treatment, fully removable and washable
  • Padding has a 3-D concave structure which is pre-shaped according to the morphological characteristics of the head, while the surfaces in direct contact with the head are free from stitching for guaranteed comfort

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi 5 Continents Helmet

AGV K-3 Valentino Rossi 5 Continents Helmet

AGV K-3 Valentino Rossi 5 Continents Helmet

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.

Features:

  • Painted HIR-TH (high-resistant thermoplastic) resin shell.
  • One shell size.
  • Dynamic ventilation system with air intakes and rear extractors.
  • Interior uses Dri-Lex with hygienic treatment fabrics.
  • Removable and washable (excluding neckroll) inside padding.
  • Clear, anti-scratch and anti-fog polycarbonate Street 8 visor.
  • XQRS (Extra Quick Release System): shield replacement without tools in few seconds; PVS (Perimetrical Visor Seal).
  • Micro-metric adjustment buckle retention system.
  • DOT certified.

AGV K-3 Valentino Rossi Donkey helmet (Misano 2009)

AGV K-3 Valentino Rossi Donkey helmet (Misano 2009)

This is another classic Valentino Rossi old-school helmet design that has also been made available in the affordable AGV K3 range.

This is known as The Donkey helmet, and Valentino raced in it for the 2009 Misano round of the MotoGP season.

Like all of Rossi’s one-off helmet designs there is a story behind the graphics. The Aldo Drudi designed lid was created to poke fun at Valentino for crashing out of the Indianapolis MotoGP and dropping 25 points in the previous race.

The helmet featured a giant Donkey on the top of the helmet, with Valentino Rossi’s actual eyes scanned in. The back of the helmet has the words ‘The Donkey’ in the coloured style of ‘The Doctor’ logo. The words “EL SUMÈR” are also written on the rear which means ‘The Donkey’ or ‘Ass’ in Rossi’s home town. The rear also features a cartoon of Valentino’s two bulldogs wearing Donkey ears.

Valentino Rossi Donkey

This is a great Valentino Rossi replica, it may not appeal to everyone as an everyday road helmet due to the fact that it has a huge donkey on it, but those Rossi fans with a keen sense of humor will love this iconic race replica in the affordable AGV K3 range – you should be able to pick this up for less than £/$ 200, making it a really cost effective way to get a genuine Valentino Rossi replica helmet. This helmet had previously been released as a strictly limited edition in the GP-tech range, which meant it came with a huge price tag, so it is nice to see these historic Rossi race replicas now available to the more money-conscious riders in an affordable range that doesn’t compromise on quality.

Official description of the Valentino Rossi Donkey 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 K3 has a very high specification and is packed with features. The K3 uses AGV’s well 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.

Using AGV’s CAD design process the inner E.P.S. shell is made of different densities, to match the properties of the outer shell, giving the K3 excellent safety characteristics. Also the shape of the shell reflects the aerodynamic design of the range topping GP-Tech whilst being focused on the needs of the rider on the road; reduced wind noise and excellent stability at speed.

The K3 is equipped with twin front ram air intake vents, and an aerodynamic rear spoiler/extractor. There are also vents on the side to aid extraction of warm air from around the face area, and a large chin vent to aid visor de-misting.

The K3 is equipped with AGV’s street8 visor. The visor features the XQRS (extra quick release system) enabling visor changes in seconds without the need for tools.

The K3 has a fully removable washable lining (both cheekpads and head lining). The liners are made from Dri-Lex, this liner has excellent wicking properties keeping the rider comfortable and dry, even in the extreme conditions. The linings are also treated with a hygienic antibacterial coating for prolonged freshness. The K3 is also fitted with a Micro-Metric buckle for ease of use with a range of adjustment. The K3 is also available in the K3 basic version, this model still features all the K3’s safety features without some of the luxury features to keep the cost incredibly low.
