Limited edition Rossi replica helmet now available for pre-order.
Link International, the Australian distributor of AGV, has opened pre-orders for the 2019 Pista GP RR Rossi San Marino limited edition helmet.
As has become tradition for Valentino Rossi’s home grand prix, close friend and artist Aldo Drudi went to work to design another one-off special to celebrate Rossi’s home town race in Misano.
Turning to the local cuisine for inspiration, ‘Menu di Misano’ became the fun, carefree theme which was interpreted masterfully using attention-grabbing images and was at the same time a great fit for Valentino’s personality.
Staying with tradition, the helmet features the two symbols that have always made an appearance on Rossi’s helmets, the sun, this time in the form of local Piadina flatbread, and the moon, in the guise of a white, red and green slice of watermelon.
Complementing the sun and moon are classic Valentino iconography like his dogs and cat appearing in the form of his fan club.
Drudi has taken a concept and authentically celebrated the local traditions, using brand-new colours and bold graphics to come up with a helmet that is truly a piece of art, which looks just as stunning up and close and in detail as it does out on the track.
The Pista GP RR results from an innovative integrated design protocol that revolutionizes the design method and allows a combination of superior impact protection, the exclusive Ultravision AGV — which guarantees a visual field of 190 degrees horizontally and 85 degrees vertically – and cutting-edge design for extreme performance, developed in the wind tunnel for unrivalled aerodynamic efficiency.
This process raises the bar in helmet research and development technology and represents a milestone in head protection systems. The replica helmet will be available in very limited numbers in Australia from February 2020.
