I have not bought a new helmet in several years so I did a lot of research before purchasing this one. Also, to carry on the tradition my brother started, it had to be a Rossi. This helmet feels so much lighter than my last AGV. And the venting is fantastic. But the thing I like the most and was the most noticeable when I first put it on is the visibility. The anti fog was a nice surprise. It went on easy and works really well. Overall I am very happy with this helmet.

Look no further, your helmet is here!
First of all, i'd like to thank Revzilla for getting me my helmet in a super-short, ridiculous amount of time. 2 days from purchase it was on my head. I even sent it back because I thought it was a little small, and then had them send me the same size again because I was a little hasty and didn't want to give the helmet a chance to break in. THEY WERE ALL AWESOME AND DIDN'T FLINCH AT MAKING SURE I WAS HAPPY! I WILL NEVER BUY GEAR FROM ANOTHER RETAILER AGAIN FOR THIS VERY REASON!
I've had this helmet for a few months now and I wanted to wait until I've had a little time in it before I wrote a proper review. [EXPLETIVE] where do I start?! I've been riding for over 30 years, and it took me this long to find the right helmet! I've had other premium helmets and they've all fit me well, but this one fits just right. Once it's on your head, you almost forget that it's there. HUUGE eye port! Ridiculous ventilation! In the tuck, the thing really works. No lift is an understatement! I've been [5th Amendment] mph in the thing and it is very stable. I will say that if you want the most quite helmet out there, this isn't it. Sound levels are on par with the AGV K3/K4 line, but different. In the K3 and K4 helmets, I've had a lot of wind noise. With the Corsa, I feel that I hear the bike's engine more (although this could be in my head… wait, it is). It's not an pain in the [EXPLETIVE] ears if you know what I mean.
Let's talk about the weight: What weight? Nuf said.
Let's talk about the quality: Have you ever heard of Dainese? Nuf said.
Let's talk about the price: We're all on a budget, but how much is YOUR HEAD worth? Nuf said.
Don't take my word for it, buy it! If I was super rich I would say: Buy it and if you don't like it, I'll buy it back…
Back to my first comment, Revzilla WILL buy it back (as long as you don't ride in it)! Before you do anything, wear it in the house while you watch the MotoGP race you recorded last year and just see how it fits (make sure you do this with no one else around because getting in the tuck on the coffee table while you're watching your wall mounted-TV will provoke questions… trust me).
I will say that I don't work for Revzilla and that this is MY review. They are one of (if not the) best retailers out there for your riding gear and parts, so give them a chance and buy the helmet from them. You won't be sorry, I can assure you of that.

Wow...what a helmet.
This is THE helmet to buy if you race and do road riding as well. I wanted to use this helmet for racing only but found it so nice that I use it for road riding as well. With my other helmets I had a problem with seeing the exit of the corner as I get so low on the bike and also use a LEATT neck brace. But with the AGV CORSA that is not a problem at all. The ventilation works really well and I get no fogging up when stopping on the grid for the start of the race as some other helmets I have used before. The tear off strips that you can buy for the helmet also works really well,,,with the dark and standard clear visor. The helmet is really stable at high speed and you can feel that this helmet was designed from the word GO as a race helmet. If you are a racer that is looking for something that works really well on track and the road....look no further. And the fact that it is a limited edition does help to rip out the credit card as well...lol.

Genuine and authentic
I have #777 of 1500. This helmet is so far the most beautiful I have seen. I have yet to be able to ride with it but it feels to be very comfortable and light.

If you're looking for "the" helmet, ask Valentino...
Being a Rossi fan doesn't do much for an unbiased review, but this is mine:
Fit: A bit snug at first, but wear it before you decide that it's not right for you. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THAT REVZILLA'S size chart is true to form! Like Anthony said: "this is a race fit helmet, that is meant to fit snug all the way around the head."
AGV did a fantastic job of designing a helmet that is comfortable and functional, and this lid is demonstrative of the finest craftsmanship of any helmet I've ever owned. I've been riding for over 30 years, so I believe I have a bit of background that may be of use to you.
Sound levels: This is not the quietest helmet in the quiver for sure...
I have a K3 that has an uncomfortable level of wind noise associated with it, but this lid is different and I'm sure it has plenty to do with the extensive wind tunnel testing that AGV has done in concert with Valentino. The 'type' of noise is significantly different. This helmet is not for you if you're going to be talking to a passenger through a communication device, but that's not to say you won't be able to deal with the sounds you are hearing. If you're a mechanical junkie like me, you want to hear your motor; You want to listen to the sound of your engine breathing in and out... This is where this helmet shines! After riding about 200 miles in this new environment, I'm only left wishing that more manufacturers would get it as right as AGV has.
Aerodynamics: What can I say, this one gets it right. No buffeting that I can speak of and it pretty much loves to be kissing the tank. You can ride upright, but the ventilation likes a more tucked position for sure.
Interior: If you've never experienced a top-shelf AGV offering, you're missing out, This manufacturer knows a bit about comfort. Try it for yourself and tell me I'm wrong. I'd be hard pressed to describe the interior of this lid as anything less than a late-night party with what's-her-name from the club on Saturday. You know what I'm talking about, you can't remember her name, but she sure felt good. So good in fact, you wish you were in there again... That the Corsa!
This helmet is Thor in the land of helmets in my opinion. Exotic materials that mere mortals can afford (but you better save up cuz it ain't cheap). Price aside, I'd say that you won't find a better helmet that offers this level of advancement anywhere in the market. After all, if it's good enough for Valentino's hard drive, it's got to be good enough for yours.
Revzilla is on the tip of the spear when it comes to gear. I am only a consumer, but my experience when purchasing this premium lid from Revzilla is far better than I expected. All of the staff are more than willing to help you make a decision and they have the product knowledge to make it easier to make the right decision. If you don't already know, trust me, you're going learn what customer service is if you buy from them. I am in no way affiliated with Revzilla except that I will forever buy my gear from them. I recommend that you do the same...

Aside from the great looks, this helmet is incredibly light and comfortable. Used to heavier modular helmet I certainly welcome the change and eventhough there are some tradeoffs such as sunvisor, intercom and most obviously the opening chin guard, there is no substitute for super light comfortable sensation either commuting or on the road. VR's input is evident!
