Dovizioso has previously raced with Vemar helmets, and Airoh helmets, but he now has a sponsorship with Suomy helmets and most of the replica models that you will find on the market at the moment will be from Suomy – this deal between Dovizioso and Sumoy marked the return of Suomy to the MotoGP grid after an absence fr a number of years. Suomy is a premium Italian brand, so the fit with Dovizioso seemed like a perfect partnership for them.
Andrea Dovizioso helmet designs:
Andrea Dovizioso usually has bold but simple helmet designs which are created by the famous Italian design studio Starline Designers. In recent years Dovi has been racing with a design theme that features two stallions, one dark and the other light. This design is said to represent the traits and characteristcs that Dovizioso feels are essential to race at the highest level – the white horse signifies integrity, honesty, and rationality whilst the black horse represents the darker side that professional motorcycle racers need involving grit, aggressiveness, and irrationality. Dovi also creates one off helmet designs from time to time, usually for his home GPs like Mugello, and these designs sometimes get released as Limited Edition replicas – like this 2015 Mugello helmet.
