American flat track
Dainese USA Inc. (Dainese & AGV), today announced its renewed strategic partnership with American Flat Track (AFT), returning as the series’ Official Motorcycle Safety and Race Apparel for the 2018 season.
As the world leaders in motorcycle protection, Dainese & AGV are known for stylish, innovative and high- quality products trusted by two-wheeled motorsport icons like Valentino Rossi.
Returning after a successful 2017 American Flat Track series – and once again partnering with the Indian Factory Racers Brad Baker and Bryan Smith - Dainese will continue to research and develop different technologies into the unique battleground presented by AFT, including further developing its breakthrough D-Air® wearable airbag system. In 2017, Dainese-equipped riders won 14 of 18 races and secured the top three spots in the AFT Twins championship.
“We are proud to enter our second year of a partnership with American Flat Track series,” said Roberto Sadowsky, Executive Vice President of Dainese USA Inc. “As the series grows we plan to grow with it and continue to develop technologies that cater to flat track racers.”
American Flat Track Champions Brad “The Bullet” Baker and Bryan Smith are Dainese’s official 2018 AFT series riders. Both will be key players in helping the Dainese team further develop safety solutions that help protect flat trackers.
“Dainese is the world leader in safety and technology solutions for motorcyclists of every type,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track, “and we are delighted to be partnering with them as American Flat Track experiences rapid growth. Our AFT athletes race under unique and challenging conditions, and Dainese’s expert input will help deliver superior safety solutions for the future.”
American Flat Track will kick off its 2018 season with the Bigger, Better, and Faster Harley-Davidson TT presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys at DAYTONA under the lights inside the fabled trioval at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, March 15, 2018.
