When it comes to street riding, the AGV Corsa is on the short list of top prospects when money is not of concern. Taken directly from the research and design that went into the AGV Pista for the greatest racer of all time, Valentino Rossi, the Corsa has been revamped with specific features that make it better for street use. From the variable flow ventilation to the auditory improvements that came along with it, the Corsa helmet is a true shark in the water. Streamlined, highly evolved, and always on the attack.
The AGV Corsa 5Hundred Helmet is a classic Italian style motorcycle lid. Wisps of colorways abound like an untapped army of speed-seeking cirrostratus clouds. As with all Corsa helmets, the 5Hundred is a total performance junky. Don’t let the street designation fool you for even a second. It is just as at home on the track as it is on the freeway. The faceshield even comes with race-ready tear-off functionality. The 5Hundred graphic channels this race mentality through its MotoGP inspired color scheme, and it just incorporates better street functionality into the mix as well.
Of all of the helmets that have been / will be released in the Fall of 2015, the AGV Corsa Winter Test 2015 LE Helmet is one of the absolute coolest. True story. It is a fantastic graphic for the rider who just wants to be them, and is comfortable doing just that. The Winter Test 2015 Corsa is all about Rossi, and brings his signature youthful exuberance to the graphic itself. In the theme of a Blue and Yellow holiday sweater that Aunt Edna knitted herself, the Winter Test helmet is as fun to look at as it is to ride in. A better street helmet would be hard to find, and one that better gave the impression of a fun-loving rider would be darn near impossible.
The AGV Corsa is an industry leader in the world of street and track day helmets. For 2016 it has introduced two new graphics that are sure to keep things energetic.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
