Marc Saurina was joined on stage by 12 #nolanriders: Marco Melandri, Chaz Davies, Stefan Bradl, Leon Camier, Xavi Fores, Lorenzo Savadori, Tati Mercado, Ayrton Badovini, Rubens Rinaldi, Mike Jones, Federico Caricasulo and Marco Faccani.
Nolangroup chose the 10th round of the Superbike World Championship to present speed lovers with another version of the new X-lite X-803 ULTRA CARBON racing helmet (with high carbon content). At the end of the first race, during the Paddock Show on the Portimao racetrack, Alberto Vergani (the President of Nolangroup) and Marc Saurina (WorldSBK Commercial and Marketing Director) unveiled the new X-803 ULTRA CARBON Official Superbike Helmet. A large number of #nolanriders were also present for the debut of this new model: Marco Melandri, Chaz Davies, Stefan Bradl, Leon Camier, Xavi Fores, Lorenzo Savadori, Tati Mercado, Ayrton Badovini, Rubens Rinaldi, Mike Jones, Federico Caricasulo and Marco Faccani.
“For years now we have been the sole holders of the Motul FIM Superbike licence worldwide, and it is a source of pride for us to be able to also use the SBK® logo on our new top-of-the-range racing helmet, the X-803 U.C.” stated Alberto Vergani, the President of Nolangroup, who then added: “Racing has always been in our blood, and this helmet has been developed by following the indications provided by our many riders taking part in the WorldSBK and MotoGP Championships”.
Marc Saurina, WorldSBK Commercial and Marketing Director, continued: “There is a solid relationship between Dorna and Nolangroup, an indication that the all-Italian company shares our high standards for quality. The new official Superbike helmet contains a rich blend of technology and safety, characteristics which are sought-after by all riders, both on and off the racetrack, and this is why we are sure that it will also be very well-received by World Superbike fans”.
“I have previewed the new X-803 U.C. Official Superbike Helmet and I can assure you that this is a really excellent helmet!” claimed Chaz Davis. Marco Melandri added: “I have always raced with Nolangroup, but this new helmet has exceeded my expectations” (the X-803 model will be used in races by all of the #nolanriders from the 2018 championships onwards).
The X-803 model, and its more exclusive ULTRA CARBON version, will be available from the best Nolangroup retailers from November in the Superbike colours, as well as in many other variants.
