This is the latest Valentino Rossi replica helmet from AGV – it is Rossi’s primary helmet design that he has been using from around 2013 onwards, basically since his return to Yamaha. It is known as the Soleluna, and it is a variant on his long running ‘Sun’ and ‘Moon’ design.
Designed by Aldo Drudi, the helmet features a striking and colourful Sun at the front of the helmet, with the sun rays arcing back towards the rear of the helmet where they overlap with a dark moon.
This is a beautiful helmet full of movement and colour.
The sides of the helmet feature Valentino’s race number ’46’, and there are two empty markings where the Monster Energy logos go (and you can buy those and fix them on yourself if you want it to look even more authentic – get them from Amazon).
