JUST A FEW WEEKS AFTER THE CONCLUSION OF THE 2017 MOTOGP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, ENGINES AND SPOTLIGHTS ARE TURNED BACK ON AT THE SEPANG CIRCUIT. THESE FIRST YAMAHA MOTOGP WINTER TESTS, SCHEDULED FOR 27 AND 28 NOVEMBER, BRING THE FANS ANOTHER JEWEL IN THE COLLECTION OF SPECIAL AGV HELMETS WORN BY VALENTINO ROSSI. THE AGV PISTA GP R PRODUCED FOR THE OCCASION FEATURES A LIVERY INSPIRED BY THE SYMBOLS AND COLORS OF POPULAR MEXICAN TRADITION.
The famous skulls decorated with geometric shapes and the artistry of colored beads piqued the Doctor’s curiosity during a recent holiday in Mexico, providing the inspiration for this livery. Its creation, preceded by careful research into the original methods used to produce these works, is truly unique.
“Huichol art immediately intrigued me, because it uses many of my symbols, like the sun and moon or the turtle” explains Valentino Rossi. “We have tried to recreate the effect of the beads that the Mexicans use to bring color and shape to these objects, but to do so with a Valentino Rossi twist. The helmet looks really good, Aldo Drudi did a great job, as did Davide in particular (editor’s note - Davide Degli Innocenti, graphics and coloring manager at Drudi Performance); he created the beads with a brush, one by one. We might say that the helmet has become a work of art, something we’ve never seen before”.
An artisan approach that ensures each of these limited-edition helmets is unique.
The limited edition will bear the same graphics as Valentino’s helmet, with the exception of other sponsors’ logos and the visor components and accessories.
Model Description AGV Pista GP RR Winter Test 2020
The Pista GP R is the successor of the Legendary Pista GP. With this helmet you show that you only settle for the best, the cream of the crop under the helmets! It says enough that Valentino Rossi himself rides with exactly this helmet. The Shell consists entirely of carbon. A super-light and extremely strong helmet. It is the safest helmet available. It also has improved aerodynamics by, among other things, the Biplano rear spoiler. This results in the spoiler ensuring that the helmet remains stable at top speeds. This helmet has a hydration system (which you can easily remove), so you can drink while driving, should it be necessary. This helmet is suitable for both circuit and street use.
AGV claims that the Pista GP R is the safest helmet on the market. The helmet shell consists entirely of Carbon composite fiber, weighs 1350 grams and has 4 different Shell sizes. The inner lining can be easily and quickly detached from the helmet shell in case of emergency, thanks to the Safety Release System. The visor is very strong with a thickness of almost 5mm and has a huge field of view, which leads to good protection and safety.
The pista GP R is equipped with an IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) consisting of 5 Moto GP metal air inlets and 2 air outlets. The air inlets at the top are positioned in such a way that the highest achievable air intake takes place. And that creates more air pressure on the rear air outlets. This airflow in the helmet ensures pleasant cooling. The ventilation of the Pista GP R is of an unprecedented level.
The only small minus that we could find is the sound insulation. But remember that it is a sports helmet designed for high-performance use. The helmet comes standard with earplugs to directly lift this minus.
The Pista GP R comes with a Class 1 visor with 100% Max Vision Pinlock. This visor prevents distortion of the vision. It comes with Race 3 Max Pinlock®. The visor has a field of view of 190 degrees horizontally and 85 degrees vertically. The visor comes with an improved closing mechanism which is smaller than before and it prevents unwanted opening. The visor has two positions. First position is for in the city, the visor is not completely closed and ensures excellent airflow. The second position is completely closed, meant for higher speeds. The visor can easily be replaced without any tools.
The inner lining of the Pista GP R is comfortable and soft. It is breathable, moisture regulating, antibacterial and mainly seamless. Furthermore, the lining is removable and washable. The thickness of the lining can be adjusted for optimal fit.
