I’ve just shown you a replica of Valentino Rossi’s AGV helmet and frankly, this video has nothing to do with a limited edition helmet or anything like that. But the funny part didn’t let me ignore it so here it is: A future motorcycle journalist! Smart kid…I wonder if it is because of all that baseball bats that he applies to himself.
Riders from Great Britain will have the opportunity to buy a limited edition AGV helmet named “Dreamtime”. Produced by the GP-tech, it is the most advanced model of the race line as it is made out of carbon and Kevlar.
It is a replica of the Valentino Rossi’s helmet, and so it will be produced in a number of only 250 copies and sold for 429 pounds. By simply taking a look at it, you know it is well worth it.
Dainese started in 2000 to develop an airbag system that would prove efficient in a motorcycle crash (or slide as you can see in the video) by protecting the rider’s upper body. By now, development has reached terminal faze and we can see the actual system working in a simulated fall-and-slide crash.
Scheduled to be released in 2010, the new air-bag-equipped suits (D-Tec system, as it was named) will be the first to be produced by a major bike clothing manufacturer. Let’s just hope that we won’t need it at all! But you never know for sure, do you?
Called the Roof R06 Bamboo, this motorcycle helmet was created by a French designer named Claude Morin and it stands for innovation while proving that technology doesn’t always have to be so complicated.
The bamboo fiber is simply braided together and it remains thick and safe enough to meet the European E22-05 standard referring to the protection offered by motorcycle helmets.
In fewer wards, if you are having second thought about wearing this limited edition helmet, you will probably have the opportunity to take some funny pictures of the guy that does wear the thing.
With the motorcycle number continuously growing as well as the number of accidents in which two-wheeled vehicles are implied, we should take in consideration this Safety Video and learn from other’s mistakes when we read about fatal crashes. Ride Safe!
