Italian helmet brand KASK are pleased to announce a long-term partnership with the Great Britain SailGP Team. KASK are enormously proud to play their part in helping the team make history in front of a global audience.
Based in Italy, KASK helmets are recognized around the world for their exceptional safety, eye-catching design, attention to detail, and all-round comfort. They specialize in developing, designing, and manufacturing sport and safety helmets to the highest quality. In every field of application KASK helmets are at the forefront.
The GBR team will wear KASK KHIMERA helmets for sailing which have been uniquely engineered for their complex and demanding needs. They have been specifically engineered via a collaborative approach between the KASK R&D team and technicians and GBR athletes.
As well as being worn during sailing, KASK’s safety helmets will also be used by the shore and operations teams for all on-shore boat operations, including when the team crane their high-speed F50 race boat in and out of the water. The Great Britain SailGP Team will use the KASK Plasma AQ helmets.
Diego Zambon, General Manager at KASK said: “We are very proud to have been chosen by the Great Britain SailGP Team who only partner with the very best in their field. Both KASK Sport and KASK Safety have been involved in this partnership and will continue to work closely with the Great Britain SailGP Team to ensure the needs of not only the sailors, but also the shore and operations staff, are met. The safety of all those involved is of paramount importance, especially when the highly advanced boats get craned in and out of the water on a daily basis.”
Sir Ben Ainslie, CEO and driver of the Great Britain SailGP Team said: “The team has huge goals to achieve and we rely on our partners to help us push the boundaries of technology and engineering so we can be the best in the field. We chose KASK due to their helmets & unrivalled safety, quality and attention to design that enables the highest performance to be achieved.
