The Celebr-8 helmet was designed and presented to Valentino Rossi in 2008 to celebrate his 8th World Championship. The original Celebr-8 helmet was black (to find out about the black celebr-8 helmet click here).
In the 2009 MotoGP season Rossi has continued to wear the Celebr-8 helmet design, but opted for a newer and much brighter yellow version. Other than the colour, design is essentially the same as the black version with a chequered stripe running through the length of the helmet, with a number 8 (representing the number of world titles that Rossi has now won) positioned on the top. Rossi’s number ’46’ race number is position on the side.
In 2009 Rossi signed a deal with Monster Energy drinks and the yellow version of the Celebr-8 helmet marked the first appearance of the ‘Monster Claw’ logo.
