AXO AND NICCOLO’ CANEPA READY FOR THE SBK CHALLENGE

January 27, 2014

AXO Sport, the world’s leading brand in motorcycle apparel industry, is pleased to announce the beginning of a partnership with young Superbike rider  Niccolò Canepa.

The Italian gun, who clinched the Stock 1.000 title in 2007 and was runner up in the same category last year, will ride the newborn Sbk Evo category aboard the first Panigale Evo bike of the grid: the Ducati of the Althea Racing Team…so may the challenge begin!

Canepa will represent AXO with suit, gloves, boots and protectors, studied and developed in Italy to grant maximum comfort and extreme protection even at the incredible speed reached by the Superbike.

Valentina Zago, AXO President: “We are glad to have Niccolò in our team: he is Italian, he is a young but experienced rider and we believe he’s the right man to represent our company in the new Sbk Evo class, which is a great question mark as well as a thrilling project for everybody. We wish a great season to Niccolò and hopefully he will bring great results to AXO from the very beginning!”.

Niccolò Canepa: "I will face this season equipped with high quality and technical products, as I will be backed by a well known  Italian Brand, one of the best in its industry. I’m really happy of this cooperation and I hope to bring AXO as many victories as possible to thank them for their hard job!”.

In the pics Niccolò wears the Limited Edition Keith Haring gear, with which he goes training with his Enduro bike.
