I signed on with AXO Sports for sponsorship to wear their cycling shoes and gloves. For the 2014 season, I will be wearing the AXO SX Gloves and Berm Shoes. I’m excited about riding for AXO…many years ago, when I had my bike shop, I carried AXO gloves as the only full finger glove that I stocked. I wore their gloves ~15 years ago and I excited to be wearing them again.
To develop, manufacture and distribute apparel, footwear and accessories for motorsport and cycle riding, for every level of riding skills: from beginner to champion. To help riders achieve and go beyond their limits in sports, thus better defining who they are as persons and enrich their lives and well being through the activity of those sports.
AXO Sport was established in 1978 and immediately became industry leader in footwear, clothing and protective apparel for motorcycle enthusiasts. Initially focused on the off-road, AXO quickly broadened its range of products. Today AXO provides its customers with a full set of gear from head-to-toe for street and motocross riding. AXO’s range of products is constantly evolving; new and innovative items are developed daily, to suit the needs and ever-changing tastes in the motorcycle apparel market. Super-moto and free-styling are now part of AXO’s priorities and a mountain-biking collection has recently been added to AXO’s catalogue. Not to mention the lifestyle collection, which suits motorcycle lovers when off the bike. In 2003 Axo America Inc. was established; it is a vibrant commercial center and an important R&D location. Based in California, AXO America researches the American market at the core, to expand and improve AXO’s collection and explore international trends.
AXO put together a crew who is dedicated to the two wheels; the design and R&D departments are on a continuous quest to find the best materials and design applications for racing and riding. This restless effort brought AXO at the top and made it a reference brand internationally in its market. To keep this real, AXO sponsors riders in MotoGp, Superbike, Supercross, Motocross, Supermoto and other side championships. Technicians and designers work together, using sophisticated machinery to guarantee the best quality of our products and to offer the highest safety to all riders. Today, AXO is the only brand that can give its riders all they need from head-to-toe for both off-road and street riding; this confirms that customer satisfaction and product diversification are our main goals.
We understand the needs of all riders, because we are riders ourselves, and we are the first to test our products. In creating our items we also follow the advice of our champions, who, with more experience and sensitivity, can better test suits, helmets and boots in extreme situations: on the tarmac at 300 km/h, over a triple or through a mud bog!
