AXO Motocross News

AXO proudly announces the beginning of a prestigious partnership: One of the world’s leading brands in motocross apparel and the Red Bull KTM MX1 Factory Racing Team have signed a two-year deal which will see 4-time Motocross World Champion Antonio Cairoli and German star Maximilian Nagl wearing AXO gear in 2011.

Tony and Max will take on their mission wearing the Nickel pants, the Pistol jersey and the brand new Padlock glove, which represents the motocross apparel company’s top line up.

The "Slip Fit" knee system on the pants, the 100% lightweight polyester construction with fully sublimated graphics of the jersey and the all new "Over the Top GOLF" closure of the motocross glove, confirm that the company is always at the front of innovation. AXO continues to lead the way in construction and setting the trends in fit and function within motocross.

The AXO staff is pleased to welcome Tony and Max and the whole Red Bull KTM MX1 Factory Racing Team. We had the chance to work with Claudio De Carli a few years ago. I am sure that his professionalism, his long experience in the field, combined with Tony’s and Max’s great performances, will bring us a lot of success! AXO won its last MX1 World Title in 2007….we are looking forward to repeat this fantastic experience!"

Claudio De Carli (Red Bull KTM MX1 Factory Racing Team Manager) says: "we are honored and happy to come back to work with AXO for next season. AXO is a top-level brand to partner with in our racing efforts and their passion for motocross is well known. We would like to thank AXO for this opportunity and we wish to reach great results together!"
