AGV Pista GP R Carbon Rossi Misano 2016 Helmet
Rossi pays homage to best friends everywhere with the AGV Pista GP R Carbon Misano 2016 Helmet and its Blues Brothers imagery. The helmet features several details from the movie, which was the inspiration for the Doctor and designer Aldo Drudi. Harking back to the movie The Blues Brothers, Valentino and his childhood friend Alessio Salucci (better known as Uccio) dressed as Jake and Elwood Blues as seen on top of the helmet. The AGV tricolor logo dominates the forehead and sides of the spoiler. Uccio’s fist leans on top of the central logo, his nickname tattooed on his fist. Sweet Home Misano is written on the back of the rider’s head, one of the songs from the movie that also pays tribute to the many fans at the Misano World Circuit, Rossi's home track, to support him. Rossi's dogs Cesare and Cecilia and his red cat Rossano, all wearing Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and fedoras, sit at the back of the helmet. The chin guard has the Bluesmobile, the police car the Blues Brothers drove.
The pinnacle of professional motorcycle racing protection. The ultimate track helmet. The AGV Pista GP-R Helmet features an integrated hydration system developed with top riders with tube routing optimized to eliminate distraction for completely unencumbered hydration while riding. MotoGP developed metal air vents with an innovative external fins structure have been engineered to capture maximum airflow in the front of the shell and increase air pressure on the rear exhaust, therefore increasing the speed of air transition inside the helmet, and leading to higher cooling performance. The wind-tunnel-tested “biplano” spoiler has multiple wings to maximize aerodynamic performance and add stability at high speed. The extremely compact and light 100% carbon fiber shell’s shape is designed to minimize interference with the racing suit and limit risk of impact energy transfer to the collarbone, while the interior has an adaptable fit and places no stitching in sensitive areas. The result is a helmet that approaches perfection in terms of eliminating distraction and maximizing comfort for the ultimate pro-level track riding experience- the AGV Pista GPR Carbon Helmet.
