Dainese/AGV dealers are now offering a limited edition replica of Valentino Rossi’s ‘big eye’ helmet that was worn during the Mugello MotoGP round. The unique AGV helmet has a price tag of £499.99. This helmet doesn’t use the usual graphics and was created with the aid of famous designer Aldo Drudi. This helmet features the Italian flag’s colors as well as one of Rossi’s big blue eyes.
The helmet is used to voice a message to Rossi’s fans telling them to: “watch out because sooner or later there’s going to be a change.” This replica is of the GP Tech, the AGV model that Rossi wears regularly. The GP Tech is a range-topping helmet. Its development was made possible with the assistance of the nine-time World Champion and the technicians at AGV. The GP Tech also features the best elements from the other race helmets from AGV – the GP Pro and Ti-Tech.
