Over the years Rossis helmet designs have taken on an important and almost talismanic role, and the designs have been used to communicate with his fans by documenting the highs and low, the frustrations and successes throughout his racing career. They have also paid tribute to the fans, his friends, and many have been created just to provoke a laugh or a reaction. The 5 Continents design is an enduring Valentino Rossi classic and was worn as his primary MotoGP helmet between the 2009 to 2012 seasons.
Previously it was only available as a high-end limited edition, but AGV have made this iconic design available in their K3-SV. As with all Valentino Rossi helmets, this design was created by Aldo Drudi and it is based on Valentinos long-standing Sun and Moon logos, with a fiery sun at the front positioned above the visor with the sun-rays cascading back towards the rear of the helmet, and a dark moon positioned at the rear.
The helmet is named 5 Continents as each of the Suns rays on the design contains imagery and artwork that represent each of the five continents that MotoGP races take place on during a season. The K-3 SV is an affordable, adaptable helmet with a surprising array of features, including an internal drop-down sun visor, impressive aerodynamic performance, efficient ventilation and an expansive field of vision. The shell is of thermoplastic construction, and the inner liner is of Dry-Comfort fabric. Patented micro opening system to'crack' the visor open for added airflow. 2 Shell sizes to minimize size and weight.
