Valentino Rossi’s AGV Helmet Design for 2018

AGV AND VALENTINO ROSSI –  1970’s-INSPIRED “SOLELUNA” DESIGN

Valentino Rossi and legendary helmet designer, Aldo Drudi, collaborated to update the design of the AGV Pista GP R in a completely new and unique look compared to Rossi’s past helmet designs. The combination of technical support from AGV and design collaboration between Rossi and Drudi brings together the best of technology, safety and racing style.

Inspired by popular graphics from the 1970’s , the new Valentino Rossi helmet features linear shapes, color blocks that stand out on the shells, and the name of the rider.

Drudi’s creativity brought Rossi’s concept to life: a helmet that he would have worn should his racing career have taken place in the 1970’s, an idea the champion from Tavullia, Italy, has had in mind for years.

The design is a pronounced change in direction compared to the style of the latest designs presented by AGV and Rossi, including the extremely colorful Mexican-themed helmet used during the 2018 Winter Tests. For Rossi, the presentation of new helmets has become a true ritual, full of nuance, and often imitated.

The design of the new helmet is deliberately clean and simple, leaving ample room to emphasize the drawing of the Sun and the Moon, and introduces a change in colors including a refined mattE finishing for the dark blue areas. Visit AGV.
