Performance

During FP3 of the TIM Italy San Marino and Riviera di Rimini Grand Prix, Valentino Rossi wore a special helmet with highly coloured personalised graphics as he always does for his home race. Just a few miles from Tavullia, the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli has a special place in Valentino’s heart both for the reception he gets from his fans plus the fact that he knows every bump and bend on the track where he first started racing. Valentino has always had a very strong connection with his home and so decided to include some distinctive images of his affection in the graphics on his helmet.

The AGV Corsa features most of the features of the Pista GT 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 new IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) provides a total surface area of air intakes improved by 193% .
  • The rear spoiler and the smaller dimensions of the front section and lateral section maximize aerodynamic performances at high speeds.
  • The new quick release visor mechanism is 71% smaller. It is also provided with a front microlock system that reduces the risk of opening, in the event of an accident.
  • The field of vision is 15° wider and has been optimized for a rider tucked over the tank.
  • The cheek pads in AGV Dry-Comfort material treated with sanitizing treatment can be customized with replacement cheek pads of different thicknesses.

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

  • Visor mechanism: XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) in metal with roto-translation opening. Visor lock system (VLS) that reduces the risk of accidental opening in the event of an accident. Quick release system for tool-free removal and replacement of the visor in seconds
  • RACE 2 flat, Class 1 optical standards, non scratch and anti-fog visor(4 layers) whit wide field of vision suitable for tear off strips
  • Retention system: Double D Retention System
  • Removable nose guard
  • Removable windproof chin strap protection

Fit

  • Breathable Lycra® lining and shalimar fabric with sanitizing treatment
  • Fully removable and washable inner liners
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with wide ducts hollowed into the shell
  • Air vents with open/close mechanism
  • Weight: E2205: 1,350g (+/- 50g) in size MS
  •  External shell in CAAF (Carbon-Aramidic-Fiberglass). Inner shell EPS in 4 sizes
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) ventilation with large air ducts hollowed into the shell and vents which direct air to the rider’s head
  • Ventilation system optimised in wind tunnel and consisting of 4 front vents (3 at the front and 1 on the chin guard) and 2 rear extractors
  • Air vents with open/close mechanism
  • Large rear spoiler optimised in a wind tunnel to maximise aerodynamic performance and ventilation, even at highspeed. Spoiler designed to detach from the helmet in the event of an accident to increase passive safety
  • New visor mechanism in metal with swivel opening. Rapid visor release system requiring no tools and allows the visor to be removed and replaced in seconds
  • Visor Lock System (VLS) system that reduces the risk of accidental opening in the event of an accident. The visor meets Class 1 optical standards with a thickness up to 3.3 mm
  • Breathable, micro-perforated Lycra® crown pad with concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped in a single piece moulded around the contours of the rider’s head thanks to our Rabbit System. No stitching in sensitive areas and padded with multi-density foam. We also offer the option of personalising the fit of the crown pad. Can be personalized with the included foam inserts at the area around the back of the neck with the insertion of a removable foam pad
  • 3D Shalimar® cheek pads with multi-density foam. Inner liners covered by three patents. The fit of the cheek pads can be customised
