AGV Pista GP Carbon Helmet 

The AGV STANDARDS project, established in 2009 with Valentino Rossi as its leading rider, is ready to get on the track with the first AGV PistaGP helmet. The Pista GP sets new performance standards with its wide field of vision, low weight and compact dimensions, extensive ventilation, exclusive ergonomic design and class-leading aerodynamics. 

Development of the Pista GP began by taking measurements of riders’ heads with a digital scanner. These measurements were then used to design the helmet from the "inside out".  It is based on the “Human Engineering” concept and applies to a new design process which starts from the components that are in direct contact with the head and gradually progresses to the outer shell.  As a result, the structural shapes imitate the area of contact thus providing greater safety and smaller dimensions.  AGV EXTREME STANDARDS HELMETS use FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) to set new standards in safety, comfort and ergonomics.  In addition to new levels of safety, the AGV Pista GP sets new standards in environmental protection with the raw materials and new technologies used in production having a focus on low environmental impact. 

"I consider the PistaGP helmet to be a homage to Gino Amisano, an enterpreneur I admired for his ability to innovate, for the standards he set and for the competitive spirit he had when he faced a challenge. The new helmet is based on AGV Standards, the project that follows Amisanos core values and revolutionizes helmet development, setting new standards for protection and ergonomics that can be demonstrated. The new generation of helmets developed through this project has the task of bringing AGV to lead again in both the market and the technical field." - Lino Dainese

Technical Highlights:

  • The residual impact force transmitted to the head is reduced by 36% compared to the limit established by ECE regulations.
  • The HIC index is 48% below the limit established by ECE regulations.
  • The basic visor movement area has been reduced by 71% compared to the GP-Tech helmet. This allows use of the space saved to increase the thickness of the absorption material, benefiting safety.
  • The visor is Class 1 optical standard approved for excellent vision.
  • The field of vision is 15° wider and the overall visor window area has increased by 9% compared to the previous helmet, without compromising its level of protection.
  • The Z-Lift index has been reduced by 44% after wind tunnel tests.
  • The air intakes have almost tripled in size, whereas the entire ventilation system of the PistaGP helmet removes heat and moisture very efficiently. The padding has a 3D concave structure, which is preshaped according to the morphological characteristics of the head, while the surfaces in direct contact with the head are free from stitching for guaranteed comfort.
  • Thanks to its "from the inside out" design, the structural components of the helmet are designed to provide the required performance while minimizing size and weight.
  • The frontal cross section has been reduced by 3% and the lateral cross section by 6% compared with the GP-Tech helmet. 
  • The fit of the PistaGP helmet, covered by three patents, provides an extraordinary high level of comfort and adaptability to different shapes, unknown up to now.

Features:

  • 4 shell sizes 
  • Carbon Fiber Shell
  • IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with wide ducts hollowed into the shell 
  • Removable and washable inside padding 
  • Hygienic treatment of the comfort padding 
  • Breathable Lycra micro-porous lining and Dry-comfort fabric with sanitizing treatment  using CoolMax fabrics
  • Double D retention system 
  • XQRS (Extra Quick Release System): shield replacement without tools in few seconds 
  • RACE 2 flat, non-scratch visor with wide field of vision, ready and suitable for tear-off strips (sold separately)
  • Total protection from UV rays 
  • Highly scratch resistant paint

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
S C: Aesthetics definitely came into play. I could have gotten a plain black Corsa but I'd need to save more than $400 to do so. Everything they say on the box is true. Light, huge air, huge field of view, no lift, very low noise, and comfort for my face shape. Fit and finish is way better than my Corsair V. Oct 1, 2013
david m: Looks, weight, increased visibility and venting, and (most importantly) to look like Valentino Rossi ! Sep 24, 2013
A shopper asked: Looking at this helmet it is everything I want in a helmet, my questions are...
How is the road noise?
Is there room to fit a communication system in it?

david m: The noise level is very acceptable. Not the quietest helmet I have but well worth the reduced weight on your neck. You can easily fit a comm system in it. I have a Sena in mine. Jan 22, 2014

WILLIAM R: Road/wind noise is about the same as any other premium helmet aimed at the sporting market. It's not great, but with earplugs it is acceptable.

I don't see how there would be room for a comm's system in mine, but I haven't looked into some of the new Bluetooth comm's systems either.

A shopper asked: Why is it not SNELL approved? Oct 26, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
WILLIAM R: I am not an expert on this, but this question probably could be answered better by AGV America. However, I suspect it is not Snell rated for several reasons. One, it costs money to have Snell test & rate the helmet. Two, DOT rating is all that is required to sell them in the US. And three, the EC/TUV ratings used to rate helmets in Europe is just as strenuous as the Snell system. I know each organization does their own specialized, proprietary testing with Snell supposedly being one of the best. But from my research, it doesn't look like the Snell testing methodologies are really all that different than what is required by the EC regulations. Oct 26, 2013

Paul N asked: Would totally get this helmet without second thought or hesitation if not for the fact that i have to manually close up the ventilation vents. everything about this is perfect and i get the whole lightweight thing but paying 1.4k and i still have to stop my bike in rainy weather, pull those plastic bits out of my pocket and putting it in really makes me wonder if all the inconvenience that comes along with it is worth it. Do they send extra's ? what if i lose one ? do i have to order those things again? does it come with spares ? Oct 22, 2013
