MotoGP rider Stefan Bradl takes his partnership with Dainese one step further this season. In addition to the Dainese D-air® Racing suit, boots and gloves, the German rider who was 2011 Moto2 World Champion, will also wear a Dainese AGV helmet. This is the first time he will be protected head-to-toe with Dainese - masters in the safety field. During tests carried out in February at Sepang (Malaysia), Bradl wore a brand new AGV Pista GP helmet, and swiftly signed a two-year contract to honour this partnership.
"I have always worn Dainese leathers, and have wanted to wear an AGV helmet for some time. I closely followed the example of my old hero Valentino Rossi who has contributed to the development of the Pista GP model. In early February during Sepang tests I had my first opportunity to try the AGV helmet. I was extremely impressed by the fact it's so comfortable to wear and carry, not to mention the superb visibility it offers." Commented Bradl. "I'd like to thank Dainese and especially Lino Dainese for their trust and support in recent years. I'm certain that I'll be able to show my recognition for their kindness on the track given the fact that I'm very optimistic about the new season. I'm also certain that Dainese will understand if I challenge the honorary president, Rossi, on the track while wearing an AGV helmet!”
Fabio Muner, Dainese’s Marketing Manager: "We are delighted that Bradl will race with an AGV helmet protecting himself from head-to-toe, with the very best equipment that Dainese has to offer. Bradl has been working very closely with us for many years, and was one of the first riders to use and help develop the D-air Racing equipment. Bradl is one of the new generations of MotoGP riders and has a brilliant future ahead of him. It is crucial for the Dainese Group to take our partnership with him that step further.”
