The Dreamtime helmet design is probably one of Valentino Rossi’s most intricate and beautiful helmet designs ever.
The Dreamtime design was first used in 2007 at the Philip Island MotoGP, and was then also used during post season testing in Sepang.
Created by Aldo Drudi, the design is heavily influenced by Aboriginal art and Rossi’s usual Sun and Moon design has been transformed into an incredibly detailed graphic, complete with sun rays, coloured dots, glimpses of starry nights, and small bare footprints the run up the center of the helmet from the back to the front. The chin of the helmet is left white and features Rossi’s race number – 46.
The rear of the helmet features a turtle, also designed in a similar Aboriginal art style.
The Dreamtime helmet has been made available previously, but now it is available in the awesome AGV K3 SV range – this is basically the updated version of the bestselling K3 model, with the key addition of a built in sun visor….hence the SV in the model name.
Everything else that bikers love about the K3 range (affordable price, aggressive design, many premium features) remain unchanged. And with the beautiful Dreamtime design now available as a Valentino Rossi race replica in the range, it is a perfect way to pick up a stunning looking helmet for well under £/$ 200.
Modeled after the top-of-the-line AGV GP-Tech helmet but at an affordable everyday price, the AGV K3 SV offers excellent ventilation and many of the same features as the premium track-focused models (the Corsa and Pista). The AGV K-3 SV is the successor to the very popular K3; but now with an internal sun visor! Manufactured in 2 shell sizes throughout the size range, the shell is constructed from a High Resistant Thermoplastic Resin (HIR-TH). The interior pads are made from Dri-Lex and microfibre with a sanitising treatment, both the cheek-pads and interior pad are removable and washable. Front air intakes along with rear exhausts, micro-metric retention system, Share Bluetooth system ready, an optical class 1, non-scratch, anti-fog, polycarbonate visor and internal sun visor make this helmet unbeatable value for money.
The K-3 SV has been designed to accept the new integrated communication.
