AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Shark helmet (Misano 2015)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Shark helmet (Misano 2015)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Shark helmet (Misano 2015)

Ahh, finally….AGV have announced the release of the Shark helmet design that Valentino Rossi wore for the Misano MotoGP in 2015.

This helmet design was created to show the pressure that Valentino Rossi was under when he got to Misano – Rossi had been leading all through the season and was top of the MotoGP standings, but his points lead was being eroded rapidly by Jorge Lorenzo and a resurgent Marc Marquez.

The design depicted Rossi as a plucky fish trying to outswim a big shark who has its eyes firmly fixed on the fish. Rossi said the shark signified the other racers who would be looking to beat him as Misano is his home race, but in reality, most people thought the shark represented Jorge Lorenzo.

Valentino Rossi said:
“Because this is my home race, everybody wants to beat me, so the big shark on my helmet represents Jorge, Marc, the Ducatis. All these guys want to eat me because I’m the small fish, but I will try to escape, that’s the target!”

AGV are making this helmet available as a limited edition in their premium Corsa range. The Corsa is basically one level down from AGV’s race helmet (The Pista GP) and it takes many of the features that you get in the Pista, but adds more flexibility making it better suited to street use. Make no mistake, this is a helmet equally at home on the track as well as the road.

This is going to be a hugely popular Valentino Rossi replica and we’d expect it to sell out quite quickly. We have put links at the bottom of the page showing you where you can order it.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi ‘Wish You Were Here’ Helmet (Misano 2013)

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi ‘Wish You Were Here’ Helmet

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi ‘Wish You Were Here’ Helmet

This is the Valentino Rossi ‘Wish’ or ‘Wish You Were Here’ helmet design that he wore for the Misano MotoGP in 2013.

The meaning behind the design is simple – Valentino Rossi was expressing his feelings for his friend Marco Simoncelli who died at Sepang in 2011. The Misano race track was subsequently named after Marco Simoncelli, who was a local rider from just up the road in Cattolica, so it was a natural track to pay tribute to Simoncelli at.

The design is very unusual in that it takes artwork from the Pink Floyd album ‘Wish You Were Here’ as the inspiration. The top of the helmet features the robot arms from the album, and the rear of the helmet features the now famous photo of two men shaking hands, one of whom is on fire.

Valentino Rossi Misano 2013

The sides of the helmet feature Valentino’s race number and the back has a small Sun and Moon icon.

This is a really eye-catching helmet design, and it is now being made available by AGV in Limited Edition numbers in their Corsa helmet range.

This beautiful Valentino Rossi helmet replica will go quickly, so if you are interested in picking one up we have provided links to trusted and official online stores that are selling it and can ship it worldwide. Check them out at the bottom of the page, or read AGV’s official description of the helmet below:

Product description of the AGV Corsa ‘Wish’ helmet:

The Corsa model combines the performance of the Pista GP with the characteristics needed for use on the road.

The Corsa has a carbon-fibre/glass-fibre/aramid fibre ssl (super super Light) shell which was designed using fem techniques and Features EPS internal ducts to create a small, light helmet Which is both comfortable and extremely safe. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior to the limits set by ECE Standards and that weighs just 1350g* (+/- 50 g) in MS size (the weight refers to the 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 dynamics studies 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 unparalleled performance as in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor area is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor.

The fit of the Corsa was developed using the new “human Engineering” process with which design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer’s head. The padding inside 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® sanitised 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 different shapes of skull as never before.

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

Helmet features:

  • SSL Carbon-kevlar construction
  • 4 shell sizes
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System)
  • Breathable Lycra micro-porous lining and Dry-comfort fabric
  • Fully removable and washable inner liners

As usual, Valentino Rossi showed up at the Mugello MotoGp round with a custom designed helmet to celebrate the occasion – gone was the usual Soleluna helmet design in favor of this reflective helmet design that is often referred to as the ‘mirror’ design, ‘yellow energy’, or ‘solar power’.

The helmet featured a battery energy level gauge on the rear where each level corresponds to each of the sessions over the course of the race weekend (e.g. red for the first free practice, all the way up to yellow at the top for race day). The sides of the helmet had a solar panel design and the top of the helmet had a reflective mirror effect which created a stunning effect during the race.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015 Helmet

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015 Helmet

This is the Valentino Rossi winter test helmet from 2015, now available as a Limited Edition race replica helmet from AGV in their excellent Corsa range. This helmet design is sometimes called the Valentino Rossi ‘woolly hat’ or ‘ugly jumper’ design….for obvious reasons.

Valentino unveiled this design at Sepang in Malaysia, in the thick and humid heat for the winter testing sessions before the 2015 MotoGP season kicked off – basically a ‘winter test’ in name only. As a joke Rossi had a helmet design created to make it look like a chunky knitted woolly hat, complete with winter symbols like snowflakes and reindeer. To complete the image, Rossi’s factory Yamaha team all had actual woolly hats made in the same design.

The design was created by Aldo Drudi, and also features a giant snowflake on the top of the helmet. The helmet is created in Valentino’s favored yellow colour, with a blue background.

This is a brilliant Valentino Rossi replica helmet, and the Limited Edition will be highly collectible. As a nice touch, AGV are also including a woolly hat, the same type that Rossi and crew had for the testing sessions, in the presentation box for this helmet.

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.

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.

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.

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.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi 'Give us a hand' helmet (Misano 2014)

As is customary, Valentino Rossi had a new helmet design for the 2014 MotoGP at Misano, and now AGV have released a race replica of it in the Corsa range as a Limited Edition.

This helmet design is called ‘Give Us A Hand’, but it is also known as the ‘hand-print’ design, and ‘Misano ci dà una mano’.

The helmet was designed by Aldo Drudi and featured a light blue base that was covered with hand-prints in various colours. The hand-prints were made by various people that play a key role in Valentino’s life and includes hand-prints from his friends, family, mechanics, and it even features a single finger-print from the designer Aldo Drudi himself. The helmet even features oaw prints from Rossi’s bulldogs and cat. On either side of the chin are kisses that were made by Valentino’s girlfriend and his mother.

Around the chin of the helmet is printed the phrase “Misano ci dà una mano”, and roughly translated it means ‘Misano give us a hand’ or more simply ‘Misano helps you’. It is a phrase from a well-known Italian advert.

This is a really bright and eye-catching helmet in colours that you don’t usually see on Valentino Rossi helmets making it somewhat unique.

The AGV Corsa is a fantastic helmet that takes many of the features from AGVs premium race engineered helmets like the Pista GP, but makes everything more forgiving and flexible so they can be more easily customised for everyday road use. This is a helmet that is equally at home on the racetrack as the streets.

Official description of the AGV Corsa ‘Give Us A Hand’ 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.

Features:

  • Carbon/Aramid/Fiberglass SSL (Super Super Light) Shell
  • 4 shell sizes
  • Clear rear aerodynamic spoiler
  • ECE 2205, ACU GOLD
  • Breathable Lycra® lining and Shalimar® fabric with sanitized treatment
  • Fully removable and washable inner liners and cheekpads
  • Custom fit adjustable liners and cheekpads (adjustment kit included)
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with large ducts hollowed into the shell for improved air circulation inside the helmet and better aerodynamic efficiency
  • Switchable air intakes
  • XQRS Visor mechanism (Extra 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, anti-scratch and pinlock ready visor (pinlock included) with wide field of vision. Suitable for tear off strips (included)
  • Double D Retention system
  • Removable nose guard
  • Removable windproof chin protection
  • Weight 1350g (size MS)
  • Sizes XS – S – MS – ML – L – XL – XXL
