AGV GP-Tech Elements Rossi Helmet
WOW! Need I say more. Super light weight, I can see out of my peripherals perfectly, and everyone is right the pictures do this helmet absolutely NO justice...It's beautiful in person. So happy I bought this after many years of research and wanting a Rossi helmet, perfect fit!

As others have said the pictures online do NOT do justice. This helmet is gorgeous. I always wear a medium in AGV and this one isn't as tight as the Grid model but medium is still the correct size. Very light, interior is super soft micro fiber. Zero negative to say. The eye port is a little narrow but you'll be hard pressed to notice anywhere other than the track.

Awesome helmet and awesome styling. The helmet looks like a piece of art. The colors are much brighter than the pictures show.

Es simplemente hermoso, las fotos no le hacen justicia, un interior muy cómodo y liviano, la talla es la descrita en el size chart así que no hay problema en devoluciones, muy buena calidad así que sí les gusta van a la fija 100% recomendado.

Love It ;-)
Love this helmet. It is so light and a great tribute to Marco. It is a little noiser than expected but not bad.
I usually take a large but I had to go a size smaller with the AGV.
A must for any Marco fan.

AGV produces a quality helmet with good style, safety & comfort
I purchases the helmet as I had great results from the Rossi Faces Helmet. The fit is true to size and the quality is on par for a top end helmet. I am looking to purchase another Rossi theme helmet.

Great helmet. Wish I'd switched sooner
Replaced a brand new Arai corse air that I crashed with. Always have been arai user because I thought they were way above others. This AGV is better in every way. Wish I'd switched sooner.

A tribute done right...
I was researching helmets for about two weeks. I went to every local motorcycle shop and tried the agv gp tech, shoei rf 1100, the hjc rafa, arai corsair V, rxq, and signet q. I studied every word of review that came from my most trusted source for real rider experience, Revzilla. Thanks Revzilla for helping me make a confident decision. I think I have a predominately round head (not exactly Charlie Brown round) with a little bit of oval. I used the size I was wearing in HJC (large) and of course listened to what the Revzilla team suggested.
Comfort and weight? I was holding out for the latest greatest carbon fiber super technical helmet from agv but I'm not on the track (yet!), and couldn't justify the cost. Plus I was really jonessing to get out of my lower end helmet (hjc cl-16). To me the agv gp tech was the lightest, but when you get up to this level of purchase its hard to tell a big difference in weight. The hjc rafa was super comfy but it felt big and round on my head like an astronaut. I personally dont prefer sugar scoop style chin vents which also eliminated the shoeis and arais. The arai was a bit more comfortable than the agv but not enough for me to have that sugar scoop vent. Otherwise the agv was like having my head wrapped with the softest stuffed animals ever made...i really dont know how else to describe it...very comfortable. when i purchased this helmet about three months ago, i weighed 220lbs now i weigh 185 and the helmet is a smidgen big. Im going to get some bulkier cheek pads thinking that will help. I ride everyday for fun for at least two hours and have had no issues with pressure points or "hot spots".
Ventilation? This is a race style helmet. the vents on the top work best in full and 3/4 tuck but if you are upright or 1/2 you just tilt your head a few degrees and your head can feel the rush of air. the chin vent works perfect. I get very limited to no fogging when sitting at a stop light with the visor down. The agv gp tech neck line is high, which i like, because the airflows around and back down the back of the helmet and that keeps my neck cool. I also like the high neck line because i don't bump my helmet against my shoulder armor as much when head checking.
Style? "WOW!! Nice Helmet!!" get used to that. inside and out this helmet is the coolest cleanest looking graphic helmet on the planet. Thats how much I like it! Its a conversation starter for sure, especially when you run into race fans who know of Marco and how awesome of a guy he was and how much he will truly be missed. Marco was a class act. Because he was such a class act I enjoy rocking his tribute helmet. Im just glad the LE came out when I made my decision to get the AGV GP Tech because quite honestly I didn't like any of the other graphic or color options they had...but that's my narcissism talking again.
Technical stuff? I have no idea because this is my first high end helmet. But the material is soft and durable. To me the helmet is very quite. Once I hit 80mph and in an upright position the wind is loud but find me a helmet that wont be at 80 mph in an upright position. The field of vision is incredible. The vents and vent triggers are solid, positive, and easy to use. I attached the Sena smh10r to my Marco helmet. I hid the battery inside the back of the helmet so you can only see the control unit. I did a review on the Sena SMH10r and you can check out photos there. But the speakers fit perfectly and I cant feel them against me ear at all. I used the wire mic (not the boom mic) and i don't even notice its there. in fact i don't notice the Sena at all unless music is playing or i need to take an important phone call rollin 160mph. ;)
overall? for the price its a great deal. you feel totally protected by this helmet and you look cool to boot. you'll luv it! I didn't give it 5 stars because i would like to see a racer style helmet with road warrior venting but without loosing the aesthetic appeal of the racer style. once someone can do that...5 stars baby!
