PISTA GP: THE HELMET DESIGNED AROUND YOUR HEAD DEVELOPED WITH CHAMPIONS FROM MOTOGP

From the very start AGV has worked with racing World Champions, not just for sponsorship deals, but also to gain their valuable track feedback. The feedback gained is fed straight to AGV’s Research & Development department to help develop innovative solutions, to protect riders under the difficult circumstances found in racing.

AGV Extreme Standards helmets were created with the input of great champions but are designed for everyone. Following an accurate study about different head shapes, the measurements are defined with extreme precision to create more comfortable helmets for all concerned.

Discover the innovations of the Pista GP from Stefan Bradl, Andrea Iannone, Lukas Pesek and Danilo Petrucci on video with a final confirmation from Valentino Rossi.

+FIELD OF VISION The field of vision is 15° wider BRADL: “The visor offers a really good view of the track and lets you see the next corner a little in advance

+VENTILATION The air vent sizes have been almost tripled. IANNONE: "The enormous air vents allow air to circulate freely around your head meaning that you'll sweat less or, even better, stay cooler".

+COMPACTNESS Maximum protection with minimum size PETRUCCI: "I have a fairly large head but this helmet is much smaller than the others I have worn".

+AERODYNAMICS Resistance to aerodynamic penetration PETRUCCI: "On backing off the throttle, it's less tiring to keep my head up and there's less movement behind the fairing".

+SAFETY A lighter, safer helmet IANNONE: "The design is simply fantastic with superb aerodynamics that really come into play when you ease off the throttle. At top speed, your head often tends to pop out from behind the screen and the helmet then squashes your nose. With this helmet, that simply doesn't happen".

+COMFORT Improved dynamic comfort PESEK: “The helmet is very light and the visor is so big that the first time I put it on, it was like I wasn't wearing a helmet al all

CONFIRMATION BY VALENTINO ROSSI

Valentino Rossi was the first rider to collaborate in setting up the AGV Extreme Standards project and helped fine-tune the Pista GP. His input was absolutely essential for identifying technical solutions to be adopted. Below are his comments that confirm the results of simulations and tests:

“Great aerodynamics, it's like you’re not wearing a helmet”

“Fantastic ventilation that you can really feel”

“Exaggerated visibility, like switching from the TV to the cinema”
