Skully Helmets give motorcyclists a view backward on their heads-up display.


The man in the black motorcycle jacket has a very Silicon Valley story. In that he's not from Silicon Valley, never really thought he'd be in Silicon Valley and now can't imagine being anyplace else other than Silicon Valley.

"This place is a playground for ideas," says Marcus Weller, 28, whose venture shares cavernous office space with dozens of other start-ups at the Mid-Point Technology Park just off Highway 101. "I'm amazed how fast things can arc here, if you have the right idea at the right time."

7 Lightest Motorcycle Helmets Available

7 Lightest Motorcycle Helmets Available | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

There are a ton of factors that influence how well a helmet wears. Shape, aerodynamics, scoops, tribal fairy dragons, and spoilers all make a huge difference, but one of the biggest factors is weight. Here are seven of the lightest motorcycle helmets available.


Disclaimer: Helmet weight is probably the least regulated figure to ever grace a spec sheet. Different scales, liners, and versions of helmets are used and it’s really hard to compare any two figures evenly (nearly impossible when you add a third). That said, the following numbers are straight from the manufacturer. We then added any interpretation we felt needed clarification. Each of the following helmets is among the lightest in its class and therefore is a great place to start your shopping.

AGV Helmets: Design Andrea Iannone's IndyGP Helmet! | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Submit an original helmet design, and have it worn by Andrea Iannone at the MotoGP race in Indianapolis!


Design your own helmet, and have it worn by Ducati Pramac team rider, Andrea Iannone, at the Indianapolis race this August. To participate, simply download the attached registration form in anytime between June 6th 2013 and June 28th 2013. There, you will also find a file that contains the “Pista GP” helmet model. This can be used as a starting point for inspiration and creation.

 

After developing a unique design, it must be emailed to info@agv.it by midnight June 28th 2013.

 

AGV in conjunction with Andrea Iannone will examine all entries from July 1st through July 5th. They will base their decision on the following criteria:

 

- originality of the design

 

- connection and contextualization of the design with the MotoGP race and the Indianapolis circuit.

 

GOOD LUCK!

Video | Valentino Rossi and the story of Mugello: pt.3 Showtime | Monster Energy

The 2012 MotoGP of Italy was the scene of Valentino Rossi's most personal and direct dedication to his fans who came in their tens of thousands.

Opening the AGV helmet case on the Saturday morning he presented a message of "Restiamo Uniti" or "Let's stick together". In typical stye it had all the humour and more than enough sub-plots to get the rumour mill churning. Some people interpreted it as a direct reference to his state of mind within the Ducati team; others may know it as a common catchphrase amongst Italian family television courtesy of Gianni Morani who took pride of place on the lid. It quite probably meant both but by no means was it lost on the army of fans who invaded the asphalt on Sunday afternoon as the riders brought their machines back to the pits on the back of a hard fought race.

Valentino was left with plenty to do, starting in tenth position but despite lack of front-end feel he dragged himself and Cal Crutchlow up into the pack ahead of himself and ultimately grabbed fifth as he watched the final podium place being duked out by Andrea Dovizioso and Stefan Bradl just ahead.

Skully seeking beta testers for Augmented Reality motorcycle helmet

Skully seeking beta testers for Augmented Reality motorcycle helmet | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Distraction, disruption, destruction. While enjoying a ride, you check your GPS, or check your six, and just at that moment an oncoming car decides to make a quick turn right in your path, or a car comes at speed out of a side road. Proper gear is important to survive in such situations, but avoiding them is even better. Enter the Skully AR-1 augmented reality helmet, with a voice-controlled heads-up display (HUD) that provides rear and side view video, bike data, GPS instructions, and phone and music utilities.

PHOTO.GP Helmet In Progress : Scott Jones | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

As I’ve written before in this space, one of the very best things about my photography adventures has been meeting certain individuals I’d never have come into contact with had I not been so lucky as to find a place in MotoGP. One person high on that list is Marc Garcia, an artist in Barcelona, Spain, who paints helmets and creates trophies, among other things.
In August, 2010, I posted here about the official MotoGP Championship Trophy, which I’d seen for the first time at Silverstone that year. In one of those lucky instances that somehow keep happening, Marc found the post and he got in touch to thank me for recognizing his work. That began an email correspondence which has led to a friendship in which we’ve not yet met face to face.
