AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Replica Turtle Helmet


AGV Corsa Rossi Replica Turtle Helmet Product image AGV Press Release: Once again, it’s that special moment that many Valentino Rossi fans eagerly await—the time when a new AGV Rossi replica helmet hits the market. On this occasion, it’s the Corsa Turtle helmet, with the graphics used by “The Doctor” at last year’s Mugello MotoGP round. The handiwork of Drudi Performance, the design features the tartaruga (“turtle” in Italian), a character recognizable to aficionados of No. 46: When he was a youngster, Valentino’s mother gave him a toy turtle that he mounted on his helmet. The plaything is long gone, but a small turtle icon has regularly appeared on his helmets ever since; he even has the character tattooed on his hip. For Mugello 2013, the turtle got a much more prominent placement, as Rossi poked fun at an early-season performance that hadn’t met his own excellent standards. The design also includes Rossi’s familiar bulldogs Cesare and Cecilia (this time wearing turtle shells), along with a miniature figure of Rossi pursuing his top competitors. As for the helmet itself, the Corsa is one of the most innovative models ever released by AGV, and was developed through the same AGV Extreme Standards process as the Pista GP. Designed, developed and tested with the help of Valentino Rossi, and made in Italy, it features an outer shell made of SSL (Super Super Light) composite fiber (aramid and carbon fiber), as well as a 15º wider field of vision than the GP-Tech it replaces. Aerodynamic performance is enhanced by the rear spoiler and smaller front and lateral sections, and fit is customizable via replacement of the AGV Dry-Comfort cheek pads.
