Rossi's Project 46 helmet detailed
AGV have revolutionised the design method behind helmets, taking it to a new level with the PistaGP.
Valentino Rossi played a pivotal role in the development behind the helmet. The process began with the Italian helmet makers using a laser to scan the MotoGP riders head, and moving away from the traditional process of starting with the outer shell and working inwards, AGV designed the helmet from the inside out.
As the helmet was perfectly tailored for Rossi's head, he revealed: "I am very happy with the PistaGP, it feels like I am not wearing a helmet. Its aerodynamics have increased, with excellent ventilation and exaggerated visibility, like switching from the TV to the cinema.”
The UK price has yet to be announced.
