Suzuki MotoGP racers to benefit from Shock Doctor X77 collection

Shock Doctor Inc, the global brand leader in sports protective gear, announces its partnership with Rizla Suzuki MotoGP, supplying the crew and racers with its line of technologically-advanced luggage, backpacks and various Power Dry System products. The Power Dry System keeps racers protected from potentially harmful bacteria, by eliminating the damp environment where bacteria thrive on equipment and racing suits.

Shock Doctor will support the team as they travel the worldwide 2009 MotoGP circuit.

“We're pleased to be working with the exceptional Suzuki MotoGP racers,” said Patrick Lynch, motorsport director for Shock Doctor. “These athletes compete in the most physically demanding environments, handling 350 pound bikes in very hot climates while outfitted in leather. The Power Dry System capabilities will keep their suits, gloves and helmets dry, killing bacteria so they are always using clean equipment.”

“It is interesting for me to be using the new system from Shock Doctor,” said Loris Capirossi, Rizla Suzuki MotoGP racer. “I first used it in the Malaysian test, where it can be very humid and clothing and helmets get very wet, and it was good to be able to get everything dry. This is really great to have dry equipment because it feels nice and helps with your riding. I think the partnership with Shock Doctor will be a big help for us!”

Racers will benefit from the superior design of Shock Doctor's X77 Series collection of rolling luggage, duffels and packs, including a new race suit dryer. Both in competition and travel, they'll also utilize Power Dry Ultra Gear, Garment and Helmet Bags, as well as the Power Dry Blower with attachments for gloves and boots. “It's great to be associated with Shock Doctor,” said Chris Vermeulen, Rizla Suzuki MotoGP racer. “They've made some great products for motorcycling; including the helmet and glove dryers. On the technical and comfort side that is great for use at a race weekend, but also the bags, backpacks and that sort of thing are really good. We give the luggage a hard time with travelling nearly every week and it needs to stand up well, which Shock Doctor stuff certainly does. It is great to work with them and I hope the relationship will grow and be a long and fruitful one!”
