Circuit-based training specialists the California Superbike School have begun a partnership with AGV and Dainese, giving coaches the latest in on-track protection when instructing their pupils.
Launched at Oulton Park at the school’s Women’s Day 2019, the deal means that coaches will now wear the latest Dainese D-Air suits, back protectors, boots and gloves, as well as an AGV helmet.
What’s more, the Dainese Show Truck will be on hand at every school, with two 'protection experts' available to offer technical support, as well as provide a range of stock and accessories.
Founded in 1980 by Keith Code, the school uses the latest in Italian machinery, with riders able to choose between the Ducati Panigale V4, 959 Panigale or SuperSport S to gain tuition. Dates for 2019 can be booked for a wide-range of tracks, including: Donington Park, Bedford Autodrome, Oulton Park, and Mondello Park in Ireland.
In the build-up to today’s announcement, every coach travelled to the Dainese London store to get measured up for their suit.
Speaking about the partnership in a statement, the shop’s manager, Liz Porter, said: "Dainese London is happy to announce the partnership with California Superbike School by providing CSS instructors with the latest D-air technology available on market, AGV helmets and the best head to toe safety."
This was added to by the school’s managing director, Andrew Shewbridge, who said: "The original impetus for the partnership was the idea to equip our coaches in the D-air, fitting into our ethos of safety being paramount at all our events. Dainese provide high quality equipment and are market leaders in safety technology.
"Dainese have been really supportive in getting the relationship up and running. All of our coaches went down to the London store in Spitalfields to be measured up. We’re looking forward to a long partnership with the brand for sure."
