AGV Helmets Australia is proud to now offer the Valentino Rossi Replica Pista GP R Soleluna 2018 Helmet to the Australian market. The purebred Moto GP race helmet as worn by The Doctor himself.
Valentino Rossi and Aldo Drudi have created a fresh new look for the 2018 AGV Pista GP R Soleluna, inspired by the design of 1970s models. The new graphics feature linear shapes and large colour blocks. The design of the new helmet is deliberately clean and simple, emphasizing the Sun and Moon graphics. The paint scheme has been updated with a matte finish, also featured on the new Spoiler. Carbon remains visible on the chin guard and was used to create the entire shell, making the Pista GP R the safest and most innovative helmet ever produced.
The MotoGP Helmet
Pista GP R is the ultimate track helmet, developed for AGV athletes in Moto GP and other racing championships: the same performance and protective technology used in premium racing is now available to racers worldwide. The shell shape is designed to maximize aerodynamic performance with the latest wind tunnel tested rear spoiler identical to that used on the track by all AGV riders in MotoGP now featured on this new Soleluna graphic. This graphic is the same as that used by Valentino Rossi for the 2018 MotoGP season, with his personal sponsors removed.
Developed under AGV’s Extreme Standards protocol, Pista GP R features a 100% Carbon shell layered with a 5-density EPS shell and a lightweight structure that strongly exceeds the regulatory safety requirements, combined with MotoGP-derived innovations such as an integrated hydration system.
The Strength of Pure Carbon
Pista GP R features a 100% pure carbon fibre outer shell layered on a 5-density EPS inner shell, a lightweight structure that strongly exceeds the regulatory safety requirements with a weight of only 1,350 g (smallest shell size).
It boasts a 5-star rating from independent certifying body SHARP and is tested at 8.5 m/s.
4 dedicated shell sizes and 4 internal EPS sizes create a hyper compact structure that minimises volume around the head.
Made in Italy
Pista GP R is made in Italy.
The design and R&D of the helmets are carried out by AGV technicians at their headquarters in Molvena, while production takes place at AGV’s facility in Campodoro.
