The 2010 AMA Pro Supersport Champion Austin DeHaven expresses his excitement as he switches to Xpeed Helmets. He will be competing in the AMA Daytona Sport bike series aboard the Triple Crown Industries Yamaha R6 and will be wearing the Xpeed XCF-3000 Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Helmet throughout this 2012 season.
Just the past weekend, he was able to wear it and unintentionally crash test the helmet at Fontana. DeHaven had impacted on the ground face first and it resulted to a few scrapes across the front and face shield but he came out just fine.
“I was really pleased with its performance, as I won’t wear just anything and my safety, especially my head is extremely important to me and hopefully a long career in racing. I look forward to helping develop the XCF-3000 further throughout our partnership.” Austin DeHaven #56, was quoted as saying.
The soon-to-be-18-year-old racer is all praises for the Xpeed XCF-3000. He was amazed at how quiet and comfortable the fit is. DeHaven finds the shell to be very small and compact, and the field of vision was excellent for him. Xpeed is just as pleased and excited to have him represent the Xpeed Helmet brand in 2012 in the AMA Daytona Sport bike class. Ryan O’Hara, the National Sales & Rider Support Manager of Xpeed Helmets had said that Xpeed is 100% in support for DeHaven’s battle for the #1 plate this year.
Xpeed is proud as well to offer to the motorcycle world a lightweight Carbon Fiber Kevlar helmet. It does not only exceed strict SNELL 2010 requirements as well as DOT but it offers an improvement in airflow and rider usability because it uses the latest carbon fiber and Kevlar shell design. Xpeed products are manufactured in their own facility in a prestigious Korean factory so it is no wonder that quality is always first and foremost. Besides, Xpeed Helmet is one of the privileged few helmet manufacturers to have unlimited wind tunnel testing.
So 2012 will be a year to watch out for an AMA Pro Supersport Champion and a cutting edge Carbon Fiber Kevlar Helmet to be proving their best to go beyond everybody’s expectation.
