GIVEAWAY UPDATE: This helmet was won by BKA80s. Congratulations!
This week’s giveaway commemorates one of our favorite Italians – Giacomo Agostini! Affectionately known as “Ago”, Giacomo is one of the greatest GP racers of all time with 122 wins and 15 titles. This gorgeous AGV X3000 helmet looks just like Ago’s helmet, but comes with the modern safety you need.
This is a limited edition helmet – AGV only made 3,000 of them, and this is #40. Please note that this is an unused example in size Large, and it’s the only one we have.
If you’re not familiar with this helmet, let Spurgeon from RevZilla fill you in with this video. Even he calls it “iconic”, so he knows what’s up!
For additional details on this helmet, check out the AGV site! Retail value is $699.95.
AGV says that this is “the tricolor Agostini helmet, seen from behind, just as his rivals saw it. Same shape, same color scheme, the same leather bag used to transport it, modern technology. Timeless allure in just 3000 limited pieces.”
The giveaway includes the leather carrying bag.
