The AGV Pista GP RR. This helmet serves as a replacement to the Pista GP R, and as the name suggests, there arenít too many changes. Instead we get a refinement of AGVís top racing helmet and with the RR, you get the latest replicas from the Moto GP. The big question is the recommended retail price though and the Pista RR starts at 1250 Euro or just under 1400 USD. So it is pretty much inline with the older Pista GP R and of course, this helmet represents the best of the best.

Shell
As always, we start off with the shell of the Pista GP RR and it has been made out of 100% carbon fiber. That gives us a very light weight of about 1450 grams in the size S. The shell is also available in 4 different sizes on the Pista GP RR. We donít yet have a SHARP rating, though it will most likely be 5 stars like the previous version. There is the new FIM homologation though and this is a certification against impact, penetration and rotational force. Plus this is required for the Moto GP now.
Ventilation
Ventilation is pretty much untouched and we have the same, robust system as before. The chin scoops are opened and closed via a slider on the inside of the helmet by your chin. The top 3 vents are ringed by metal and can only be opened or closed by using stoppers. All in all, this pushes a lot air though the helmet and it gets pulled out of the 2 mini spoiler exhausts. The helmet has of course been designed in a wind tunnel, as you can probably see with the sleek profile and at the back, the spoiler is the detachable Pro spoiler.

Visor
Center, front we have the optical class 1 visor. It is a pinlock anti fog lens prepared visor, and the pinlock comes with the helmet. It is also prepared with tear off pins and those are also supplied with the helmet. The visor itself gives a very wide and deep field of view and the visor is very easy to replace.

Interior
Underneath the helmet, there are a few things to mention. The hydration system is a big hose running along the outside and you can hook this up to drink while racing. Then there is an emergency quick release with this helmet. The cheek pads are made out of Shalimar the head liner is microfiber. These are designed to keep you cool and have also been antibacterially treated. The helmet comes with the 360 degree adaptive fit and adjustable head liner so that you can customize the fit to what is best for you. Quality is of course top notch and everything is as it should be underneath.

Others
For the rest, the AGV Pista GP RR come with titanium double d rings, which reduce on weight but will keep you solidly in your helmet. Seeing as this is a race helmet without much noise isolation, AGV have supplied a couple ear plugs as well, which are highly recommended.

Conclusion
The AGV Pista GP RR is a slightly tweaked version of the older AGV Pista GP R, but at this level, thatís fair enough. The Pista remains one of, if not the best racing helmets and comes with everything you could need in a light weight and aerodynamic package. If you want to see more about the Pista GP RR, like a Road Test, or then you can find that on our YouTube page.

8-18-19 Met Kim and Pepe at the 76 next to the Hat at 8:00, we are going for a ride!



Heading to Wrightwood for breakfast, then riding ACH to Newcomb's Ranch!



We pulled off in Upland, Kim needed something else to wear (just had a t-shirt and vest on). So I googled for a Walmart it was 3 miles away. Along the way there was a Target so we stopped there!



Kim got a shirt so he is happy now and we made it to the gas station off the 15 and 138.



We then take Lone Pine Canyon Road to the Grizzly Cafe for breakfast!




Lone Pine Canyon Road has been repaved so it was a sweet ride!
