The AGV Corsa has finally landed on US shores, and you can get yours from Riders Discount. One of the first that we received is the Valentino Rossi Winter Test, and it is a limited, numbered edition of just 1500 helmets worldwide.

The GP-Tech has been at the top of the AGV line-up for quite some time now and, while it is still a solid helmet, it is due for a successor. That replacement is now available in the form of the AGV Corsa. The brand new Corsa is striking to look at, and that is mainly due to the fact that it is based on the carbon fiber Pista GP. It brings many of the same race-ready features developed with help from Valentino Rossi to the table, but with some added versatility to make it more usable on the street.

You can immediately tell that the AGV Corsa is something a little different at a glance. From the huge eyeport at the front, to the sharp diffuser at the back, the entire profile of the helmet screams performance. That’s because the Pista GP that it is based on was meant for pure performance at the highest level. The two helmets share the same shell shape, which means that the Corsa gets the same ultra-efficient aerodynamics and massive eyeport as its much more expensive counterpart. The area that the shells differ is the materials. The Pista GP is made of carbon fiber, whereas the Corsa is made of a Carbon/Kevlar/Fiberglass. Built into the shell are several very large intake vents at the front and two exhaust vents at the back. The shape, size and channeling of the ventilation is the same as that of the Pista GP, however the Corsa’s are adjustable.

Inside the Corsa, you’ll find a very plush, comfortable lining that allows you to customize the fit right out of the box. Peel-away foam pads are found in both the cheek pads and liner. These types of pads aren’t new to the market, but the liner also has another trick up its sleeve. The two strips of padding that run over the top of the head connect to the back of the liner with velcro, meaning that you can lengthen, shorten and move them side to side. This allows the Corsa to provide a comfortable and safe fit to a variety of head shapes. The fabrics that line the interior are all extremely breathable and have received a special sanitizing treatment that keeps them fresher for longer. When they do need cleaning, you can pull them out and wash them without having to worry about ruining them.

Overall, the AGV Corsa successfully takes most of what makes the Pista GP such an effective track helmet, and makes it more attainable for those that are not top level racers. It also adds versatility, which is not a bad thing at all. If you’re interested in the AGV Corsa Rossi Winter Test Limited Edition, just get in touch with MIKE at 866.931.6644 ext. 804 and he’ll be happy to help. Is email more convenient? Feel free to send those to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM and we’ll get back to you right away!

The Limited Edition AGV Corsa Rossi Winter Test has a smooth matte finish.








Large, adjustable vents allow air to flow directly through the shell and liner to the head. The Winter Test graphic also features the number 58 as a tribute to Rossi’s friend, Marco Simoncelli.




The rear diffuser is designed to break away in the event of a crash.

Like the AGV Corsa, but don't want to wear a Rossi graphic? AGV makes it easier than ever to get a custom painted helmet by offering the Corsa without a painted finish. By ordering the Primer White version, you have an unpainted helmet that is ready to be sent to the painter of your choice. That way you can have it in any color or graphic that you would like!

The MotoGP season has come to a close, and that means that we won’t be seeing the awesome prototypes of the top class on track again until the first official winter test of 2014 at Sepang in early February. Last year, Rossi made his first official appearance aboard the Yamaha YZR-M1 at this test and debuted the graphic that is now available as the AGV Corsa Rossi Winter Test.

Get yours from Riders Discount by calling MIKE at 866.931.6644 x 804, or by contacting him through this forum. We’re also ready for your emails, so feel free to send those to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM for a quick reply!

The AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Winter Test Limited Edition is a good looking lid right out of the box, but we think it looks even better with an optional Iridium Silver shield. The silver of the shield perfectly complements the matte silver used in the sun and moon graphics on each side of the helmet.

In addition to the Iridium Silver shown here, other optional shields for the AGV Corsa and Pista GP include: Iridium Blue, Iridium Gold, Dark Smoke, Light Smoke, Yellow and Rainbow.
