AGV Pista R Carbon Fiber Valentino Rossi Winter Test 2018 Replica Helmet

For the consummate helmet collector, or any Valentino fan, AGVís winter test helmets have always presented an opportunity to get a piece of the man himself on your head. Inspired by the bead murals made by the Huichol people of central Mexico, this lid is as festive as itís protective. Adorning the helmetís exterior is a lavish assortment of decals carefully arranged over compound curves. You may find yourself admiring the style for the beauty in its simple elegance.



The helmet itself is none other than AGVís top-of-the-line Pista R Carbon Fiber model. A glimpse past the decals reveals layers of expertly-laid of carbon fiber which easily meet ECE and DOT safety regulations. Under that shell is an EPS liner thatís formed with five layers of material, each with its own density formula to mitigate impact pressures. Protection is not a question here as this helmet was built to work in the most demanding motorcycle racing environment on earth; MotoGP.



This single-mindedness comes to light when you notice that none of the vents have an open/close mechanism, but rather an all-or-nothing approach; you can remove the rubber vent cover, or keep it in place. Other than arranging which top front intakes to leave open/closed, thereís not much to it. After all, when was the last time you saw any racer fiddling with ventilation mid-race?


On the aft side, and finally on a mass-produced helmet thatís available to the public Ė AGVís Biplano aero spoiler. This, for those that are fast enough, will be appreciated when youíre in a full tuck, riding along at over a ton, it smooths out the bobble and it looks the business wherever you go. On this particular helmet, itís a clear affair so as not to lose sight of the gorgeous spotted landscape below. And, youíll find that itís not molded into she outer shell itself, but instead affixed with break-away hardware so as not to snag on anything when you (regrettably) hit the ground.


Another nice touch, thatís again, straight from the world of those that get paid to crash bikes, is an integrated hydration system. Straight out of the box you have a carefully routed pipe that, when affixed to the hydration system of your choice (some work required there!), you can have the drink of your choice, hands-free, delivered while you haul the mail down the straightway at your local race track.


Which brings us to the inside liner Ė itís a well-made affair (Italian furniture has always been nice), without a seam to touch your head. That is to say, all the stitching is positioned on the helmet-facing side of the liner, which, while seemingly a minor point, serves to improve the linerís helmet moisture-wicking ability and also, eliminates the itchiness that sometimes can be annoying for anyone with less than a full head of hair.


This is a top-quality, Italian Made helmet thatís worthy of the GOATís honor, get a piece of yours here before theyíre gone!

Available in seven interior sizes using four tailor-made exterior shell sizes, only 3,000 of this particular design was made. Get in touch with TJ for the best sizing guidance in the business. Send a note to [email protected] or just shoot us a PM and weíll get right back to you.

You won't find a much better looking helmet than the Rossi Winter Test 2018.**


It is important to note that the Pista GP R Rossi helmets are made in Italy.


Here you will see a better shot of the hydration tube on the Pista GP R.
