NiTEK Helmets has announced a helmet race support program in the U.S. for 2016. NiTEK will sponsor 400 professional and amateur riders in Nitek P1 and Nitek Interceptor helmets for the 2016 racing season.
NiTEK Helmets will offer 100 free helmets to select riders, teams and track day organizations. Another 300 helmets will be offered through a manufacturer-subsidized rider purchase program allowing for a low cost of entry into a premium racing helmet. Both of these programs will be managed through SpeedMob Racing, the racing support program of their exclusive U.S. distributor, SpeedMob Inc.
Tim Calhoun, President of SpeedMob, states: ”SpeedMob works hand-in-hand with racers, teams and most importantly our dealer network to provide a comprehensive program supporting both amateur and professional racers. SpeedMob Racing’s NiTEK helmet program is going to be hugely impactful in building the NiTEK name in the US to a level on par with that of NiTEK’s presence in the European Market. Our goal is to introduce top professional and club riders to our brand.”
The NiTEK P1 and Interceptor helmets were developed for the racetrack, designed in Italy and wind tunnel tested in Germany. These helmets have been tested and refined the last five years working with riders like Alex De Angelis, Danny Kent, Alex Marquez and Jordi Torres at the worlds highest levels of professional racing.
SpeedMob’s 2016 rider support program went live earlier this week. More program specific information will be sent to racers and teams once an application has been received. Riders and teams may apply for 2016 support by sending race resumes to [email protected] or by filling out the online application.
