JT Racing USA Preps Up 2011 Motocross Gear
JT Racing says the gear was two years in the making. Aside from the Classick pant with Air Line System, the collection will also comprise to glove models (Flex-Feel and Life-Line).
Also, the ALS-02 helmet is the successor of JT's ALS-2 helmet of the early ’80s, which the company claims “turned the motocross world on its axis. As the world's first full-face motocross helmet, it featured full venting, an integrated visor, a built-in goggle strap path and an ultra-radical shape. The ALS helmet revolutionized the MX industry and paved the way for today's highly protective full-face motocross helmets.”
The ALS-02 features hand-laid fiberglass construction, an extra-wide, extra-tall eye port for large-frame goggles, a goggle-strap path, and a revolutionary venting system comprised of 11 intake ports and six exhaust vents — two at the bottom-rear of the helmet — to provide “truly full-circumference breathability, especially at the lower back of the rider's head, where heat tends to build up.” JT Racing describes the helmet’s looks as “retro-radical.”
"What we've done," said JT Racing CEO David Dray, "is bring back the very best of JT Racing. We've taken the best JT designs and technical legacies, modernized them with the latest technology and build quality, and repacked them with the highest levels of style, durability and function. We're bringing back the whole notion of quality and elegance to the motocross world, just as JT Racing did back in the day as it established itself as a world-class motocross brand all those years ago. It's all very exciting!"
