Marc Marquez 2015 Catalunya

In 2015 Marc Marquez announced a competition – people could go to a web page and create a special helmet design that Marquez would wear during the Catalunya MotoGP.

The competition was open to Spanish fans only, and Marquez himself picked the winner.

It is not the first time a MotoGP rider has allowed fans to design their helmet, Jorge Lorenzo has famously done it a number of times allowing Anna Vives to create special one-off designs for him to wear for Spanish GPs.

The eventual winning design was an incredible multi-coloured mosaic pattern that made the famous Marquez ant logo look like it was made from stained glass. A really beautiful looking helmet.

Despite the stunning new lid, Marquez had a bad race and crashed out while Jorge Lorenzo stormed to victory.

Alvaro Bautista ‘Family’ helmet (Valencia 2013)

Alvaro Bautista Family Helmet

Alvaro Bautista Valencia 2013

Here is a quick look back at Alvaro Bautista’s special helmet design for the 2013 Valencia MotoGP.

Bautista doesn’t hasn’t really had too much screen time in recent years in MotoGP due to the fact that he hasn’t been a top 6 regular for some time, so you may not have seen many images of this helmet, but we love it. Recent performances hint that might be changing a bit in 2017…..we hope so at least.

Anyway, let’s step back to 2013 when Alvaro Bautista pulled some special graphics out of the bag at Valencia to celebrate and pay tribute to his family, including a stork dropping in a new addition.

James Ellison 2016 Monster Energy Shoei X-Spirit 3 helmet

James Ellisons 2016 British Superbikes

This is another beautiful looking James Ellison helmet that was created by PaintNation.

This design is Ellison’s 2016 helmet that he wore for British Superbikes, and the design was created for his Shoei X-Spirit 3 helmet.

The graphics remind us a bit of Cal Crutchlow’s MotoGP helmet, with Ellison’s yellow swooping pattern thatradiats back from the front of the helmet reminiscent of Crutchlow’s green design.

The design also features a Union Jack towards the rear-sides of the helmet and Ellison’s ‘Captain Chaos’ logo is stamped on the back.

As ever, the Paint Nation team have documented the creation of this helmet design with a fascinating video and loads of photos. Check them all out below.

Andrea Dovizioso Mugello 2016 Helmet

The Mugello round of any MotoGP season usually sees all the Italian riders rushing back to their designer’s studio in order to create a special helmet design to mark the occasion. Valentino Rossi usually steals the headlines with his creations, but Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone usually bring something eyecatching to the track as well.

In 2016 Andrea Dovizioso wore probably one of the best helmet designs he has had in years to the Mugello round of the MotoGP. The helmet was created by Starline Designers, a famous Italian design studio that are probably one of the most active and prolific designers in recent years for creating race helmet designs. You can check out all the images below.

The helmet was dubbed ‘The Italian Stallion‘, and it featured Dovi’s long running ‘stallion’ motif – this is a motif that Dovi has raced with for years and his helmets usually feature a white horse and a dark horse, each horse is supposed to represent the traits that Dovi tries to bring to every race – the dark horse signifying aggression and grit, the white horse representing integrity and honesty.

The two horses in his 2016 Mugello helmet were combined into a single stunning image on the back of the helmet.

The helmet featured deep blue strips at the front of the helmet which changed to red stripes towards the rear of the helmet. A beautiful looking design, classy and striking.

A look at the 2016 Jack Miller MotoGP helmet that he wore for the Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island.

Miller’s previous special helmets for the Australian MotoGP have usually been based around the colours and symbols from the Australian flag, and while some of that influence is still here, this particular design adopts a new colour scheme that throws in some neon pink colours with some sharp patterns and lines.

The Red Bull logo is positioned on the sides and the word ‘Jackass’ is printed at the base on the rear of the AGV helmet.

The design was created by Starline Desingers, the Italian design studio.

In 2013 Jorge Lorenzo wore a special helmet for the Valencia MotoGP – it was a created to publicize the ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ game (Amazon).

The helmet was created by Starline Designers, who have pretty much been the go-to design studio for most MotoGP racers in recent years for helmets and racing livery, and it featured a black base with the ‘Ghost’ icon from the game on the top of the helmet in white.

The sides of the helmet featured the Monster Energy claw logo and the back of the helmet featured the title of the game in the offical font.

John Hopkins 2016 British Superbikes Helmet

John Hopkins 2016

We have been a fan of all of the John Hopkins race helmet designs, even way back from his MotoGP days. Hopper has carried along a similar theme through most of his helmets that usually features gambling symbols like dice, and colours and themes from the US flag and the Union Jack that reflect his dual heritage and rich history linked to both countries.

His 2016 helmet fuses his usual themes into a great looking lid that was designed by Starline Designers. The sides feature red, white, and blue stripes evoking the Union Jack and the top of the helmet features a red, white and blue stripe studded with stars representing the US flag.

The rear of the helmet features Hopper’s ‘dice’ and ‘Hopper 21’ logos.

Check out the photos of the 2016 John Hopkins British Superbikes helmet.

In 2016 Jorge Navarro came to the Czech Grand Prix at Brno with a very special helmet design. HJC helmets, the brand that Navarro races in, had just announced that they would be one of the main sponsors of the Czech GP and they had also recently tied up a deal with Marvel in order to create a series of mass market helmets with famous Marvel characters as inspiration – such as Spiderman, Iron Man, The Punisher and more.

Jorge Navarro hit the track with the new Spiderman helmet design to help promote the HJC and Marvel partnership.

This isn’t the first time Spiderman has made an appearance on the racetrack, Marco Melandri has raced with Spiderman livery (including full bike livery) in 2002 and 2004 in order to promote the Spiderman films.

A look at the 2014 Jack Miller Moto3 helmet that he had created for his home Grand Prix at Phillip Island.

This design was created by Starline Designers and it is a patriotic themed helmet that Miller wore for the Moto3 race in Australia. The helmet design is based around the Australian flag with a silver and blue metallic looking base.

The usual ‘Jackass’ cartoon donkey is replaced on the rear of the helmet with an image of Australia with the slogan ‘Home Sweet Home‘ written on it with some images of Miller’s favorite Aussie foods – meat pies and sausage rolls.

Miller went on to win the race and said:

“It was a big old fight for sure. And to win here with the top speed problems I’m having is really, really good for me. I feel that was probably the best race I’ve ever done. Even during the race, you could see (Australian) flags flying and you could really, really feel the support. It was a great feeling.” I enjoyed it, but it was also very scary at times. It was incredible. Everybody fought quite cleanly. I don’t think we could ask for a better result.”
