Two New AGV Race Replicas, Valentino Rossi, Joan Mir
The latest addition to the K3 SV range is a tribute to one of the greatest racers of all time, Valentino Rossi, with the Ride 46 release. Proudly displaying VR 46 emblazoned on each side of the helmet, Rossi’s initials and racing number in the customary fluoro yellow that has become synonymous with Valentino Rossi and his customary style which is prolific against the black base and bright blue highlights of the helmet.
The AGV K3 SV helmet builds on AGV’s extensive experience in designing the Pista GP RR and Corsa R while continuing the legacy of the original K3 helmet. An aerodynamic shell shape is optimised for stability and aggressive aesthetics and features an integrated, compact rear spoiler to reduce turbulence. The narrow chin bar is streamlined to help the helmet cut through the wind at high speeds, further increasing stability.
After winning the Moto3 world championship in 2017, Joan Mir had a brand new helmet design for 2018, and this replica paint scheme has now been released in a K1 for 2020. The Mir 2018 replica helmet design is based around a camo style graphic that incorporates sharp lines and black, white, silver and grey along with bright, bold fluoro yellow highlights throughout, with the fluoro yellow being one of Mir’s trademarks on all of his helmets.
One glance at the new AGV K-1 and it becomes plainly obvious that this helmet has AGV’s racing DNA running through its bloodlines. The K-1 shares a helmet profile with the entire AGV sport helmet range which was developed from years of testing on the racetrack. The K-1 takes this racing heritage and technology and combines it with helmet features designed for everyday use on the street for all day riding.
*This helmet will reproduce the graphics of Joan Mir’s helmet, except for the logos of other sponsors and the visor components and accessories.
