For all Valentino Rossi fans, the AGV Corsa 2015 Winter Test Limited Edition is now available.
At the first test of the season at Sepang, the “Doctor” from Tavullia showed off the graphics on his new helmet and took the idea of “winter” tests very much to heart. Despite the sweltering heat, he showed up in the pits wearing a woolly hat with winter symbols like snowflakes, deer and snow-covered trees.
The new livery chosen by Valentino Rossi features a fabulous two-colour design with his usual fluorescent yellow and blue colour scheme and his number 46 printed on the sides of the helmet in a new tapestry effect.
The Corsa model combines the performance of the Pista GP with the characteristics needed for use on the road. The Corsa has a Carbon-Aramidic-Fiberglass fibre shell, which was designed using FEM techniques and features EPS internal ducts to create a small, light helmet which is both comfortable and extremely safe. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior to the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1350g* (+/- 50 g) in MS size (the weight refers to the ECE 2205 version)
The Corsa originates from AGV Extreme Standards Helmets, an innovative process that revolutionises the helmet design process to measurably and demonstratively improve protection, ergonomics, comfort, reliability and environmental impact.
The AGV Corsa* Limited Edition is available from today at AGV stores and on the www.agv.com website at a RRP of €959.
With your new helmet, we will also send you a nice woolly hat with the same design of the one that Rossi wore during the Sepang tests.
