AGV Pista GP RR Winter Test 2005 Helmet
The Winter Test 2005 Helmet is a fun one. The graphic pays homage to none other than Dash powdered laundry detergent. The popular Italian soap brand that touted "Dash: It doesn't get any whiter." was given the Rossi touch to instead read "Rossi: It doesn't get any better."
The statement was hard to argue. In the first race of his rookie season with Yamaha, Rossi won. The achievement made him the first rider in MotoGP history to win consecutive races (2003 and 2004 seasons, respectively) on two different manufacturers' bikes. The Doctor handily clinched the 2004 championship at Phillip Island with an entire race left to go. The 2005 season was shaping up to be even more successful and the anticipation was immense. His popularity was taking Italy by storm. In an amusing stretch of logic, Valentino wanted a helmet to celebrate how television brought his name and his racing style into so many Italian households. The laundry soap Dash had followed a similar rise to popularity, crediting TV for its huge, fast-paced success. Putting two and two together, a helmet graphic was born.
Only 2,005 units of the Pista GP RR Winter Test 2005 Helmet will be produced. Helmet number 46 will go to Rossi for his private collection. The helmet meets FIM Racing homologation standards so it is suitable to protect the best professional racers in the world. Per FIM regulations, the helmet minimizes rotational acceleration from glancing impacts. Its carbon fiber shell provides lightweight protection and energy dispersal, while its unique shape allows it to be stable at high speeds as well as vent well. Four different shell sizes provide a nearly tailored fit for your head circumference so you can avoid the bobble head look. A fully integrated hydration system keeps you from getting parched during those hot track days. A specially designed eye port with face shield makes sure you have the optimal view of the track even when fully tucked throttling onto the back straight. AGV's patented Visor Lock System (VLS) securely holds the face shield to avoid it inadvertently opening in a crash. If you are the type of rider that requires the best, the AGV Pista GP RR Helmet should be protecting your head at your next track day.
On the back of the Winter Test 2005 Helmet you will find "care instructions". Procter & Gamble's got nothing on this lid.
