AGV Pista GP R Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2017 helmet

AGV have released the 2017 Valentino Rossi winter test helmet design in their premium Pista GP R helmet range.

The off-season winter tests that are held in MotoGP usually see Valentino Rossi playing around with a unique helmet design to mark the occasion, and given that the winter tests usually take place in Malaysia, in tropical conditions, Rossi has taken to coming up with ironic winter themed designs for his helmets – recent years have seen The Snowman deisgn and the ‘Wooly Hat’.

For the 2017 winter tests Valentino turned his helmet into a snow-globe paying tribute to his home town of Tavullia.

The Pista GP R is AGV’s race spec helmet and this is basically the exact same helmet that Valention hits the track with on every MotoGP weekend.

Official description of the Valentino Rossi 2017 winter test helmet:
The limited edition AGV Pist GP-R Rossi winter testing helmet is here. The ultimate track helmet is now even better, with an included hydration system, MotoGP-developed metal air vents and a wind-tunnel-tested “biplano” spoiler that has multiple wings to maximise aerodynamic performance and add stability at high speed. The 100% carbon fibre shell’s shape is designed to minimise interference with the racing suit, while the interior has an adaptable fit and places no stitching in sensitive areas.

AGV PISTA GP R E2205 motorcycle helmet. The evolution of the groundbreaking Pista GP, the Moto GP helmet, it’s the most protective helmet ever developed. Its new “Biplano” spoiler and its included hydration system bring AGV’s safety and performances to the next level.

Photographs of Valentino Rossi’s 2017 Sepang Winter Test helmet

MotoGP winter tests got underway this week at Sepang for the 2017 season, and many of the riders are out on track in their new liveries giving their MotoGP machines their first shakedown of 2017.

Valentino Rossi usually has a new helmet design for these test sessions and over the last few years he has been creating designs that poke fun at the MotoGP tradition of having a winter test in tropical conditions like Mayalsia.

This year is no different and Rossi has hit the track sporting new graphics on his AGV Pista GP helmet that show his home town of Tavullia on a smowy winter night.

Check the photos below.

Valentino Rossi AGV Pista GP Winter test Snowman helmet

It’s here! AGV have made the Valentino Rossi 2016 Winter Test Snowman helmet available as a limited edition in their premium AGV Pista GP range

Valentino Rossi often uses the pre-season MotoGP tests to reveal a new helmet design – and the designs are usually tongue in cheek or laced with humor. In 2015 Rossi had a helmet that was designed to look like a woolly hat which was intended as a joke about having MotoGP winter tests at Sepang in Malaysia which is pretty much always hot and humid….far removed from anyone’s definition of ‘winter’.

In 2016 Rossi did the same again and he showed up at Sepang with a new helmet design that featured a snowman in a yellow Yamaha hat and scarf. Rossi then wore the same design at the following testing session in Qatar leadng up to the opening race of the 216 season.

Valentino Rossi Qatar test 2016

The snowman design was an instant hit, so it is no surprise that AGV are making it available as a limited edition.

AGV Pista GP Valentino Rossi Snowman helmet:
The AGV Pista GP is the premium race helmet made by AGV. It is a full carbon fibre helmet that has been specifically designed for racing and is currently used by MotoGP riders like Valentino Rossi, Stefan Bradl, Jack Miller, Andrea Iannone and more. This helmet is the result of the AGV Extreme Standards Helmets project; this has made it one of the most innovative helmets seen on the market for many years.

It was designed, developed and tested by AGV and Valentino Rossi himself with one single aim; to create a helmet that offers the ultimate protection for racing. Using Finite Elements Analysis (FEM) enabled developers to reach previously unseen standards in terms of protection, comfort and ergonomics. The new integrated Ventilation system (IVS) provides an improved airflow of over 193% compared to its predecessor the GP-Tech. The addition of the rear spoiler and a smaller frontal section has maximised high speed aerodynamic performance. The helmets visor has a front micro-lock system that reduces the risk of opening in the event of a crash, it has a 15 degree larger peripheral vision for optimised vision whilst in the tucked position, and the visor mechanism is 71% smaller than its predecessor.

AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015 Helmet

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.

Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015

Official description of the AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2015 Helmet:

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.

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.

Valentino Rossi Winter test

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. Thanks to the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEM), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. The K3SV has a wide appeal and is suitable for all riders looking for comfort and high performance characteristics.

Thanks to Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis and wind tunnel testing, the integrated ventilation system provides maximum airflow to the head (through three front vents, chin vent, side vents, and two extractors at the back of the helmet), and the aerodynamics minimize drag, lift and noise, and ensure stability even at racetrack speeds. Two shell sizes and four EPS sizes give the K3SV a generic fit that is both plush and incredibly comfortable (plus AGV’s unique solution of offering both specific MS and ML sizes).

Feature highlights:

– HIR-TH (High Resistance Thermoplastic Resin) shell
– 2 shell sizes / 4 EPS sizes
– ECE 2205 ACU GOLD
– Dry-Comfort sanitized 3D linings and cheekpads
– Fully removable and washable inner liners
– IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with large ducts hollowed into the shell for improved air circulation inside the helmet and better aerodynamic efficiency
– 4 front air intakes, 2 rear extractors
– XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) for tool-free removal and replacement of visor in seconds.
-Visor ratchet system can be customised by changing the toothed mechanism: Touring, Race and City (included)
– GT 2 anti-scratch, pinlock ready polycarbonate visor with 100% protection from UV rays (pinlock included)
– Micro opening de-mist visor mechanism
– Integrated Sun Visor (ISV) with scratch-resistant, anti-fog visor with tool-free replacement system

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 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.
