AGV Pista GP-R now in Rossi winter test scheme

Published: 10 May 2017

AGV have released a limited edition Pista GP-R featuring the winter test paint scheme used by Valentino Rossi during the Sepang pre-season test earlier this year. Rossi's latest winter test helmet depicts his home town of Tavullia in a snow scene.

The Pista GP-R is AGV's top of the range helmet, and the Italian firm also reckon it's the most protective helmet ever developed. The shell is constructed from 100% carbon fibre with five densities of EPS structure in four different shell sizes. The shape of the shell itself has been designed to maximise aerodynamic performance while at the same time minimise the risk of impact energy being channeled to the collar bone.

The Pista GP-R also comes with MotoGP-developed metal air vents and a wind tunnel tested rear spoiler that features multiple wings for added tability at high speed. Internal channels have also been engineered into the helmet for easy use with a ydration system

All this technology comes at a price. The standard Pista GP-R costs £899.99, while this winter test addition will set you back £1100.
