The next AGV Valentino Rossi replica helmet is now available from Riders Discount! The AGV Sole Luna Rossi replica is another spectacular graphic offered by AGV. In classic Rossi style, the Sole Luna uses his hi-viz yellow complemented with bright and bold colors.



You can immediately tell that the AGV Corsa is something a little different at a glance. From the huge eye port at the front, to the sharp diffuser at the back, the entire profile of the helmet screams performance. That’s because the Pista GP that it is based on was meant for pure performance at the highest level. The two helmets share the same shell shape, which means that the Corsa gets the same ultra-efficient aerodynamics and massive eye port as its much more expensive counterpart. The area that the shells differ is the material used. The Pista GP is made of carbon fiber, whereas the Corsa is made of a Carbon/Kevlar/Fiberglass. Built into the shell are several very large intake vents at the front and two exhaust vents at the back. The shape, size and channeling of the ventilation is the same as that of the Pista GP, however the Corsa’s are adjustable.



Inside the Corsa, you’ll find a very plush, comfortable lining that allows you to customize the fit right out of the box. An intermediate-oval shell however, peel-away foam pads found in both the cheek pads and liner allow the fit to be user customizable. These types of pads aren’t new to the market, but the liner also has another trick up its sleeve. The two strips of padding that run over the top of the head connect to the back of the liner with velcro, meaning that you can lengthen, shorten and move them side to side. This allows the Corsa to provide a comfortable and safe fit to a variety of head shapes. The fabrics that line the interior are all extremely breathable and have received a special sanitizing treatment that keeps them fresher for longer. When they do need cleaning, you can pull them out and wash them without having to worry about ruining them.



Overall, the AGV Corsa successfully takes most of what makes the Pista GP such an effective track helmet, and makes it more attainable for those that are not top-level racers. It also adds versatility, which is not a bad thing at all.



If you’re interested in the AGV Sole Luna, just get in touch with Brad by calling 866.931.6644 ext. 810 or send an email to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM and we’ll get back to you right away!

I've been back and fourth on this one Brad.

Only thing that bugs me about the Corsa is they don't paint/color match the vent inserts like they did on the GP-Tech's. Wish they kinda did that...

I know, there are times it just seems gorgeous and then I nit pick at small stuff. Turns out... I do that with every helmet because we have no self control when it comes to sweet lids.

There's a lot more than that they missed on the pista and corsa reps.:secret I'm not going to point them out. But I did take it upon myself to try and match as much as I could. I quit on my helmet half way through, I'll get back to it later.






But only perfectionist care about these sort of things. :laugh

Do you mean the Monster logos and other sponsor logos? If so then none of the reps come with those, the logos are only on the actual racer's helmet.

Unless you mean something else.
