This is a complicated job. Not only measure the circumference of the head, but to begin the process of making this helmet, the head is scanned in three dimensions. And in this process Valentino Rossi’s Head actually scanned. The data obtained will describe the real of head shape.

AGV take measurements and create a database that describes the characteristics of head size and anthropometric indices in digital form. From these data made ​​the design and the foam inside the helmet conforms to the shape of the head.

After getting the data, helmets actually made ​​real and performed a variety of testing. From the fitting using the statue, to direct testing performed by Rossi. Tested in wind tunnels are also made ​​to create the best aerodynamics, ventilation effectiveness and determine the level of noise that occurs.

This is one way of AGV to show that their products have high quality. Moreover, the Italian helmet manufacturer has been proven in the Moto GP race.
