There are mountains, and then there is the peak of Everest. There are cars, and there is a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport. There are desserts, and then there is a perfectly de-thawed Oreo pie. Basically, there are cool things, and there are AMAZING things. Things that exist, and things that by which all others are measured. The new AGV Pista GP R Carbon Helmet is the latter.
Taking the ultimate and making it better ain’t an easy thing to do. That, however, was the task with the new AGV Pista GP R Carbon. Constructed of a 100% Carbon Fiber outer shell and incorporating the Integrated Ventilation System that has been so successful on previous versions, it is no wonder that the Pista GP R Carbon is the lid of choice for the G.O.A.T., Valentino Rossi. As is well known, the Pista GP was a project undertaken as a way to provide Rossi, the most famous motorcycle racer in the world, with a lid that met his exacting specifications. Of that initiative, the Pista GP was born, and for the next page in AGV’s book, the Pista GP R Carbon has been announced in the Fall of 2016. Basically, this is not a helmet for your average street rider or run-of-the-mill trackday enthusiast. It is one of the most premium racing helmets in the world built to perform with the most prominent racers who wear it.
There are few options in life that are head and shoulders over the others. Whether or not they are something that fit within your plans, the fact remains that when such things are seen, it is worth the time to take note.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
