Dainese and AGV have released details and pics of their latest top-of-the-line helmet for motorcyclists – the AGV PistaGP – which has actually been designed around Valentino Rossi’s head. ‘The new helmet is part of the AGV Standards project, which, in line with the qualities established by Gino Amisano [founder of AGV], revolutionizes the way helmets are designed, setting new records for protection and ergonomics that are clearly evident. The next generation helmets arising from this project are intended to place AGV, once again, in a leading market position with its technology,’ said Lino Dainese, President of Dainese and AGV.

Using advanced construction technologies, AGV have been able to minimize the PistaGP’s weight, resulting in a helmet that’s lighter and more compact than its predecessors, while still offering better protection and comfort. The PistaGP also offers increased visor window area, increased field of vision, reduced ‘lift’ at high speeds and vastly improved ventilation. ‘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 TV to the cinema,’ says The Doctor.

And as Mr Leno explains here, size is important when it comes to choosing your helmet...
