    Always wondered why you need TC on a little bike

    That dash looks stock ???

    In the full tuck pictured there is no way he can see directly ahead ... in the smaller classes it becomes even more important to get the right aerodynamic body position. Why don't helmet manufacturers make a wider (vertically) view. I know there are safety considerations ... but the other side of the risk is your chance of running into bike in front is higher if you can't see him. ???

    It looks almost exactly like the dash on my Aprilia, although the white tacho background is black on the Ape. Might be where it gets launch control from, too??


    And I too have never understood why all helmets are so poor at vertical viewspace when in a racing tuck. Personally I've struggled with it all my years of racing, and I'd happily give up half my peripheral viewing angle for more vertical vision.

    Try the AGV corsa, I tried it on in MCAS a few weeks back and was blown away. I pulled it down as low as possible on my head and I still couldnt see the top of the helmet when crouched in a tucked position trying to look foward. Vertical vision was one of the things they took in to consideration when designing it and fuck did they nail it ... now I just need money ...
    The AGV GP-tech I'm running at the moment has to be one of the worst for vertical vision but it just fits me so damn perfectly.

    I got a AGV corsa, hands down best helmet I've ever put on. The vision is mind blowing and the fit is incredible. The first lap out of the pits with it I panicked and thought I'd gone out without my helmet on!!. My size is a medium-large (half size), farking amazing.

    They make a more expensive CF shell'd version that Rossi etc run

    Thanks Mick ... that is number one on my Xmas list! Current helmets are getting a bit manky after three years anyway.
