Performance

The first meeting of the season gets under way at Sepang for the Teams competing in Moto GP 2015. Valentino Rossi took the words “winter testing” to heart and, despite the fact that the weather was far from cold in Malaysia, he turned up at Sepang with a woolly winter hat complete with snowflakes, reindeer and snow clad trees). After keeping it on for a couple of happy snaps with other members of the team but possibly above all, to poke fun at the tropical weather conditions, Vale also “took” it on track in the form of special graphics on his AGV Pista GP helmet.

The AGV Corsa features most of the features of the Pista GP model, in a SSL (Super Super Light) composite fiber (Aramid & Carbon Fiber) outer shell. It was developed in the same AGV Extreme Standards Helmets project of the PISTA GP, which makes it one of the most innovative helmets ever released by AGV. It was designed, developed, and tested together with Valentino Rossi aiming to create the ultimate protection for racing. The use of FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) enabled developers to reach new untouched standards in terms of protection, comfort, and ergonomics.

The carbon-fibre/glass-fibre/aramid SSL (Super Super Light) shell was designed using FEM techniques (Finite Elements Analysis) and features EPS internal ducts in the shell to provide a small, light helmet which is both comfortable and extremely safe. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1350 g (refers to MS size ECE 2205 version).

Unlike the Pista GP, the Corsa comes with a system for opening and closing the air vents which makes it a less extreme, more versatile helmet. The entire ventilation system was designed using computational fluid dynamic modelling and wind tunnel tests. This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider's head. Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Corsa boasts first class performance in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor aperture is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor.

The fit of the Corsa was developed using “Human Engineering” whereby the design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer's head. The inside of the helmet starts with a concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped to match the contours of the rider's head and any surfaces in contact with the head are stitch-free. The Lycra® and Shalimar® sanitized internal components are fully adjustable due to the fact that the position and depth of the crown pad can be modified as can the thickness of the cheek pads.

The combination of these solutions, which are covered by three separate patents, make the Corsa fit the different cranial shapes as never before.

Safety
