Every year at Misano, Valentino Rossi sports a new helmet designed by friend and artist Aldo Drudi. The 2015 edition is a must have for any Rossi fan.
The Rossi Misano 2015 Shark helmet features a large shark and yellow fish graphic on the top of the helmet that represents Rossi being chased. The Italian words “Via Via Via!” are on both sides of the helmet, which translates to “Get Away Get Away Get Away!” in English. Rossi’s number 46 is centered on the back. As with all of Rossi’s helmets, his dogs Cesare and Camilla, and cat Rossano are represented (sporting underwater snorkels and goggles, no less) on the back of this helmet.
The AGV Corsa is very similar to the AGV Pista GP, but is designed for road use. It’s a tri-composite shell made up of carbon fiber, aramid, and glass fiber.
The ventilation system built into the Corsa is a little bit different than that of the Pista GP. The special Integrated Ventilation System (IVS) consists of air ducts that are built into the helmet, directing cool air to the riders head. Unlike the Pista GP, the Corsa’s forehead vents open and close, allowing you to change their position on the fly.
The clear rear spoiler on the back helps make the helmet more aerodynamic, and reduces the drag effect by 44%. Exhaust vents on the back allow hot, moist air to leave the helmet.
A special Visor Lock System (VLS) prevents the visor from accidentally opening in the case of a crash. To unlock the visor, you simply push a button. The visor aperture is 9% larger, increasing the field of vision by 15 degrees.
The interior of this helmet is customizable. The cheek pads can by fine tuned with foam cut-outs, where the comfort liner has small disks of foam that can be taken out to eliminate hot spots. Unlike any other helmet on the market, the Corsa has tabs that can move to adjust the comfort liner size. All of the lining has AGV’s CoolMax material, which is antimicrobial and wicks away moisture.
The AGV Corsa Rossi Misano 2015 Shark Helmet is designed for intermediate and neutral oval head shapes. It is DOT and SHARP 5 Star certified.
