As always, Aldo Drudi and Valentino came up with the idea for the Mugello Grand Prix. For 2018 they designed and created graphics inspired by the spirit of Italy. The focal point is the SoleLuna motif already present on Valentino’s helmet for this season. In the basic system, the colors are what vary the most.The sobriety that Rossi and Drudi wanted to introduce at the beginning of 2018 remains, with a simple, clean design, marked by linear shapes and large expanses of color, inspired by the great classics of the 1970s. The Italian ‘tricolore’ flag returns to this new version of the AGV Pista GP R helmet after several years in which Valentino had preferred other equally evocative themes for this famous event at Mugello. Viewed from the front, the left side of the helmet is green and the right side red, while the sun and moon are white. The end result evokes a mood reminiscent of pop art.
The replica helmet (2,500 limited edition pieces) will be available from November as a Pista GP R model, priced at £999.99 SRP. Now available to pre-order, contact us for more details. 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.
The Pista GP R, an evolution of the innovative Pista GP, the MotoGP helmet, is the most protective helmet ever to be developed. Thanks to the introduction of Race 3 Max Pinlock®, a Class 1 Optic visor with 100% Max Vision Pinlock® (120), and the patented Visor Lock System (VLS) fastening, the full carbon AGV Pista GP R helmet offers an unbeatable field of vision. The new wind-tunnel-tested “Biplano” spoiler, guarantees optimum aerodynamic performance, while comfort levels benefit from a patented interior structure and an Integrated Ventilation System (IVS). The Pista GP R is the first helmet to offer a hydration system, composed of a series of ducts and a valve located on the inside of the chin piece.
A perfect combination of protection, performance and comfort, the Pista GP R is the result of AGV Extreme Standards, an innovative integrated design protocol that revolutionizes the design process, allowing for a significant and demonstrable improvement in helmet performance in terms of its protection against impact, peripheral vision, compact design, reduced weight, aerodynamics, ventilation and ergonomics. The innovative AGV Extreme Standards process raises the bar in terms of technology in helmet research and development, and represents a milestone in head protection systems.
