Light, stable and perfect for racing
This helmet is made for going fast on a track. That is the main thing you need to know before buying it. It is not meant as a daily commuter, not meant as a touring helmet and nor is it meant to be a quiet and cushy everyday helmet. Its meant for doing 200mph wheel to wheel and to protect you if it all goes a bit wrong. It is incredibly light. I have owned composite helmets before, but this is on a totally different level, it almost doesn't feel real. It is the most aerodynamic helmet I have ever had too and it has the largest and clearest visors with the best view range you could imagine, its almost like a dual sport helmet with the enormous visor! The recessed Pinlock area on the visor is wonderful, the way the visor gets pulled into the rubber seal upon closing is fantastic and I imagine It won't be letting any drops through when it rains (I've not yet used it in the rain). My only issue with the visors is that the "Dark Tint" visors are incredibly light. If you're used to a proper dark tinted visor, you'll need to buy a dark tint Pinlock insert and to put inside the Dark tint visor otherwise you'll be squinting when its sunny. The vents are amazing and work flawlessly! People have said that the rubber bungs, used to "close" the vents are fiddly, but if you are over the age of about 2 and have the use of your fingers and thumbs, it'll take you about 5 seconds to put each one in securely. To remove, you simply give them a firm tug to pull them out again. The soft padding on the inside is minimal compared to the likes of everyday road helmets like the K3 SV and the K1. But this is not an everyday helmet. It's a tool to use when you go racing. Despite the minimal soft padding, its more than comfortable and has given me no issues for complaint what so ever. This is not a quiet helmet. It may sound surprising considering all of the astounding aerodynamics that have gone into this helmet, but it's just not what you'd consider a quiet helmet. It's not 'loud' by any means, but compared to a K3 SV or a K1, it's not something you'd want to wear for extended periods of time without using ear plugs. An hours blast out to your favourite countryside café? Fine! A 2 hour trip down the M1, get stocked up on ear plugs! The chin strap is a tad on the short side if you're a bit of a chunky monkey. So if you've got more than 1 chin, it's going to be a little snug, even near it's full adjustment. Not uncomfortable but you'll know it's there. Build quality is exceptional. Every single micron of this helmet has been designed to go fast and it has been manufactured with obvious great care taken on every single detail. To summarise, if you're after an ultra light, aggressively styled, race orientated helmet for track days, weekend blasts and the occasional trip to your mates house, then this is the helmet you NEED! If you're looking for a helmet that you can wear every day for hours at a time, commute with and really use as a bit of a workhorse helmet which you can do track days with, then this will leave you feeling a bit disappointed. That is what the K1 was made for and it'll do all of those jobs and more with no issues.
This Helmet is awesome,light,top quality and visibility!i used some helmets from shark,hjc but agv helmets on the top 1.this helmet is not quiet ---> so if you want not hear anything this helmet is not for you :) Sportsbikeshop as always fast delivery and all good :)
Carbon skid lid
I have never spent so much on a crash helmet in my life! From the moment the very well packaged lid arrived I could see where my money went. I was 100% Arai man before this AGV and the comfort of this AGV is far better than my old Arai, it just seems to have all the padding in all the right places! I love it.
Another great from the great...
This is yet another great AGV Pista that I have bought! I haven't actually worn this particular one just yet, however I have worn the Nicky Hayden GP-R Memorial helmet, you can see my review over there. In terms of comfort, this helmet is second to none! With very little wind noise and excellent comfort, the GP-R helmets are extremely comfortable for long journeys and those great summer days out! I've had helmets in the past which are comfortable at first, but become unbearable after a while, the GP-R does not experience this problem. The comfort is excellent for the duration of the ride, whether it be for an hour or the full day! The helmet design is also stunning! As you would expect with the top of the range Rossi helmet, the designs are arguably the finest pieces of helmet artwork to exist! This is no exception, the cartoonistic design of the snowflakes and the addition of the wooden sign writing on the rear, this is a true head-turner! I cannot wait to get this one out to all the motorcycle events, it is truly an outstanding design! Something I haven't yet tried with the GP-R is the hydration system, the option is there which is a bonus. However unless you were planning a track day or an exceptionally long ride, this feature is a nicety but not a necessity. Again, service from Sportsbikeshop is fantastic, up to date emails and concurrent shipping information is always welcome and that is exactly what you get from Sportsbikeshop! Highly recommended!
Hands down the best Rossi helmet
So I bought this helmet with all intention of keeping it as a momento, spending so much on a helmet I was skeptical of taking it out in-case it got damaged. When it arrived however, I opened the packing to find the most STUNNING Rossi helmet I've ever purchased! I couldn't resist, I've had this on every ride since and I just can't get enough! Extremely comfortable and low wind noise, I wasn't expecting this from a Moto GP replica helmet because comfort isn't usually the prime goal of these designs. I was however, pleasantly surprised! In terms of the service from Sportsbikeshop, as always second to none! Regular email updates on the status of my order, and the ability to track my parcel. Prompt delivery time is always a bonus too! Could not recommend enough! One thing I would like to comment Sportsbikeshop on, is the excellent packing. When purchasing something expensive, the way in which the product is parceled is usually sketchy. This however was great, well packed and protected from the notorious delivery drivers we have all encountered! Again, thank you for a great purchase and I couldn't recommend enough!
First time I purchased a helmet from Sportsbikeshop. Delivery is fast and secure. Very helpful staff, just one thing is missing in box is AGV's stickers. Helmet is very comfortable for sports riding. Very stable at high speed, it feels very light. Vision in tuck in position is better than any other on available in market. Overall it is a excellent helmet.
Fantastic helmet, amazing quality and finish, pictures do it know justice. Stunning colours, super light and very stable. Amazing field of vision! I like the fact the skull cap is adjustable, great visor operation. The only negative is it's not a quiet helmet so ear plugs is a must! Fantastic service by Sportsbikeshop.
