23/03/2012 AGV presents PistaGP


Today, Friday 23 March 2012, Valentino Rossi's brand-new PistaGP helmet was presented in Jerez de la Frontera. It is the first of a new generation of helmets that are the outcome of the AGV STANDARDS project, a process that revolutionises the design method and testing of helmets, with the aim of improving, in a demonstrable and measurable way, protection, ergonomics and comfort for riders.

The presentation press conference was attended by: Valentino Rossi who confirms, "I am very happy with the PistaGP, it feels like I am not wearing a helmet. Its aerodynamics have increased, with excellent ventilation and exaggerated visibility, like switching from the TV to the cinema", Vittorio Cafaggi (Dainese Strategic Development Manager), and Massimo Varese (R&D Director Head Protection).

The AGV STANDARDS project, established in 2009 with Valentino Rossi as its leading rider, is ready to get on the track with the first PistaGP helmet.
