    • AGV Pista GP RR, the highest evolution of Pista GP, is one of the first helmets in the world to meet the strict FIM requirements

    • Thanks to the strict AGV protocol, no substantial intervention was needed compared to the previous model

    • Since 2019, the FIM homologation raises safety standards in racing helmets

    • For the first time, oblique impacts are taken into consideration 

    • Oblique impacts are those that best simulate real dynamics of impact

    • Pista GP RR is the same helmet used by MotoGP riders and is available for everyone on the market


     

    The latest helmet featuring AGV’s racing technology is Pista GP RRIt is the highest expression of a helmet that, already back in 2012 when it was launched, has redefined the concept of head protection. Being the combination of safety and performancePista GP introduced new standards in terms of impact protection, lightness, aerodynamic penetration, field of vision width and ventilation.   

    Pista GP RR is the latest evolution of the range and confirms to be the point of reference among racing helmets. Strict engineering protocols followed by the AGV R&D department ensured that Pista GP RR easily passed the strict FIM homologation testsThis new regulation was first introduced in the MotoGP World Championship during the Catalunya round in 2019.

    Thanks to the rigor imposed during the helmet’s research and development, already applying even harsher standards than those required by the European ECE law, no substantial modification was needed to the previous model Pista GP R to pass the International Motorcycle Federation homologation.  

    But what does this new standard consider? 

    The International Federation set a milestone in higher safety for riders, specifically focusing on helmets. The FIM homologation aims to be one step ahead of the ECE European law, which defines helmets homologated for road use.  

    The greatest “revolution” introduced by FIM is tests on oblique impacts, which, instead, are not considered by the ECE law. In fact, these impacts enable a more accurate simulation, perfectly recreating what usually happens in real life. Oblique or angular impacts are extremely harmful as they provide dangerous rotations of the rider’s head. Recent scientific studies show that most brain injuries are caused by rotations of the head and the FIM regulation is the first one to force producers to measure and limit them.

    Moreover, compared to ECE, the FIM certification differentiates linear impacts, making a distinction between high (8,2 m/s) and low (5,0 m/s) speedThis ensures the highest performance on a wider range of impact forces. In addition to these tests, on the same points of the ECE law, the FIM homologation adds linear impacts at high speed on three further points of the shell, together with penetration tests.  

    AGV Pista GP RR is one of the few FIM-homologated helmets, available for everyone on the market. Safety, lightness, field of vision and aerodynamic performanceEvery single detail is obsessively taken care of, for all those who want MotoGP technology and protection around their head
