Since Valentino started to use the GP TECH in 2008 his primary graphic was the five continents. During the 3 seasons of ’08 ’09 and ’10, Valentino wore a number of special graphics but the five continents was always one of Valentino’s favourites and alongside the legendary VR46 the five continents was the only primary graphic to be worn unchanged for 3 seasons.
In 2011 Valentino made the dramatic move to Ducati, and so a new graphic was needed, once again legendary designer Aldo Drudi is the creator of this masterpiece.
The “ELEMENTS” features the famous sun and moon design that has been the theme of all of Valentino’s primary helmets, the classical elements; Earth, Fire, Water and Air are represented in the rays of the sun and give the graphic its name. The rear of the helmet features Valentino’s trademark 46 over the moon that is partly made of the colours of the Italian flag.

For 2011, the “ELEMENTS” is going to be available in strictly limited numbers through a selected number of TEAM AGV dealers and will retail for £499.99.
