Before Marc Marquez, there was Valentino Rossi. Dubbed the “The Doctor,” Rossi is a professional motorcycle racer known for his multiple MotoGP World Championships. An Italian native, Rossi’s love for racing started a young age with kart racing and continued to grow as he did.
In honor of Rossi’s legacy, AVG has dedicated the Corsa Turtle Rossi Replica Helmet. The helmet is a colorful attraction featuring a turtle with big bright blue eyes. Rossi considers the animal to be very significant as he’s said the turtle was a mascot from his youth. It all started when his mother got him a stuffed turtle toy that he would then attach to his helmet while racing. Despite their size and speeds, turtles have come out on top though the popular saying “slow and steady wins the race.” Much like our nine time Grand Prix World Champ – Valentino Rossi.
Wherever your head’s at, we’ve got it covered.
The new AGV GP-Tech Rossi Misano limited edition helmet features graphics that represent Valentino’s “WTF” attitude after his difficult 2011 season. The comic style graphics on this AGV helmet feature lightning bolts, skulls, accidents and two dogs on the back (can you guess what they are saying?).
The AGV Rossi helmet combines lightness, ventilation and comfort with an innovative aerodynamic design. Features include a super lightweight Carbon-Kevlar outer shell, removable and washable interior padding, front air inlets and rear extractors that provide efficient air-flow.

Valentino Rossi has made it a tradition to wear a crazy graphic helmet at his home race in Misano, Italy. Without a doubt, this is a top of the line AGV helmet designed and developed with the support of Rossi himself.
