The double face!

At the official test in Sepang , Valentino Rossi amazed everyone with a brand new helmet for the first laps of 2014. As usual "The Doctor" showed no lack of originality never ceasing to surprise us with his ideas.
After the more conservative yellow and grey graphic, which he wore during the last year's Winter Test to match the color scheme of his bike, the new helmet which was exclusively created for the Malaysia track, is simply spectacular. The designer, Aldo Drudi, included the famous Sun and Moon symbol Valentino carried during the 2013 World Championship Series. This time, however, he inverted things by 180° with the front and rear apparently the same. From behind it looks as if Valentino's face was peering out from behind the visor almost as if to taunt his adversaries. By means of the message “I have my eyes on you”, the Tavullia rider appears to be clearly stating his intention to get back in the game, reclaim his name as the best in the world and finally win his 10th World Championship title.
Monster Energy logo on Vale's replica graphics!
For the first time we'll see the logo of the world's biggest energy drink on the chin guard and sides of Valentino’s helmet. The unique and captivating M of Monster Energy is shown in lime green stylized flames with white shading around the edges. Vale has been sponsored by Monster Energy since 2009 when he was one of the first European Motorsports stars. At that time, the president of Monster Energy said: "Striving for greatness" has always been our motto and we share this belief with a true champion-Rossi”.
The Corsa is a supersport helmet which combines the performance of the Pista GP with street-riding characteristics such as adjustable ventilation and improved comfort without having to forgo the performance standards of the GP version. Both Pista GP and Corsa are AGV Extreme Standards Helmets. This innovative process revolutionizes helmet design with the simple aim of demonstrably improving protection, ergonomics, comfort, reliability and environmental impact. Made in Italy and protection of the environment: the Pista GP and Corsa are both designed and made in Italy by highly qualified craftsmen using the state of the art technology. Furthermore, both helmets are manufactured using the most efficient technologies developed with great effort in protecting the environment. Waterjet technology is used to cut the carbon fibre shells, the painting system uses eco-compatible water based paints and a dust suppression/residue treatment system is in operation throughout the entire factory.
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.
