The AGV standards project, established in 2009 with
Valentino Rossi as its leading rider, is ready to get on the track
with the first AGV Pista GP helmet. The Pista GP sets new performance standards
with its wide field of vision, low weight
and compact dimensions, extensive ventilation, exclusive ergonomic design and
Development of the Pista GP began by taking measurements of riders' heads with a
digital scanner. These measurements
were then used to design the helmet from the "inside out". It is based on the
"Human Engineering" concept and applies
to a new design process which starts from the components that are in direct
contact with the head and gradually progresses
to the outer shell. As a result, the structural shapes imitate the area of
contact thus providing greater safety and smaller
dimensions. AGV standards helmets use FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) to set new
standards in safety, comfort and
ergonomics. In addition to new levels of safety, the AGV Pista GP sets new
standards in environmental protection with
the raw materials and new technologies used in production having a focus on low
-The residual impact force transmitted to the head is reduced by 36% compared to
the limit established by ECE regulations.
-The HIC index is 48% below the limit established by ECE regulations.
-The basic visor movement area has been reduced by 71% compared to the GP-Tech
helmet. This allows use of the
space saved to increase the thickness of the absorption material, benefiting
-The visor is Class 1 optical standard approved for excellent vision.
-The field of vision is 15_ wider and the overall visor window area has
increased by 9% compared to the previous helmet,
without compromising its level of protection.
-The Z-Lift index has been reduced by 44% after wind tunnel tests.
-The air intakes have almost tripled in size, whereas the entire ventilation
system of the Pista GP helmet removes heat
and moisture very efficiently. The padding has a 3D concave structure, which is
preshaped according to the morphological
characteristics of the head, while the surfaces in direct contact with the head
are free from stitching for guaranteed comfort.
-Thanks to its "from the inside out" design, the structural components of the
helmet are designed to provide the required
performance while minimizing size and weight.
-The frontal cross section has been reduced by 3% and the lateral cross section
by 6% compared with the GP-Tech helmet.
-The fit of the Pista GP helmet, covered by three patents, provides an
extraordinary high level of comfort and adaptability
to different shapes, unknown up to now.
