This is the new AGV Corsa VR46 helmet. It’s not really a race replica as Valentino Rossi has never ridden in this specific design, so view it as more of a tribute to ‘The Doctor’ – it’s a simple looking lid with aggressive lines, and it’s a bit different than most of the other Valentino Rossi helmets on the market.
The helmet comes in two colours, blue and black, and features the number ’46’ in yellow on either cheek of the lid. There is a white stripe on the blue model and a yellow stripe on the black model that runs from the chin to the rear of the helmet, and a smaller ’46’ is stamped on the top above the visor.
The Corsa is AGV’s mid-range helmet, whilst not as expensive as the Pista GP helmet, the Corsa takes many of the premium features that you find on the Pista but makes them more flexible for road use.
The carbon-fibre/glass-fibre/aramid SSL (Super Super Light) shell was designed using FEM techniques and features EPS internal ducts in the shell to provide a small, light helmet which is both comfortable and extremely safe.
The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1350 g* in MS size. Unlike the Pista GP, the Corsa comes with a system for opening and closing the air vents which makes it a less extreme, more versatile helmet. The entire ventilation system was designed using computational fluid dynamic modelling and wind tunnel tests. This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider’s head.
Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Corsa boasts first class performance in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor aperture is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor. The fit of the Corsa was developed using “Human Engineering” whereby the design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer’s head.
