We were with you...


Once again, we were present at the Autosport Show (13 - 16 January, Birmingham, UK).

We held 2 major meetings on 2 very sensitive subjects: The Hans® Device and the Heat stress.

These 2 different research programs which were lead with the medical help of MD Terry R Trammell, Professor Claude Meistelman, and Docteur Paul Trafford were extremely successful and showed us we were going in the right direction; feel free to contact us anytime to get more details.




Furthermore, we were also present at some other very different geographically and thematically shows: Belgian Motor Show (28 - 30 January in Liege), Australian Motorsport Show (18 - 20 February in Melbourne) ou International Historic Motorsport Show (25 - 27 February in Coventry, UK)...



And of course, the racing season having started, we were present - amongst others - at the Daytona 24 Hours, Grand Am in Homestead, The Historical Races at Sebring...


We will be with you...
Meet our racing trackside across the world
We will be trackside, in total at over 200 races worldwide, find the provisional calendar here.


Discover our know-how...

There are now 4 videos that allow you to discover our workshops and our research programs:

    - Video "The manufacture of a helmet" (Eurosport)
    - Video "The manufacture of a racing suit" (Eurosport)
    - Presentation on Made-to-measure and the Hans® Device (Eurosport)
    - Presentation on the Heat Stress (Samipa)

Have a nice viewing!



One talks about it...

The research programs we have decided to pursue are very much followed:
Numerous articles around the world have already spoken about the Hans® Device and our R&D department, which has fitted this system at numerous races, is regularly sought as a technical advisor.
Articles about the Heat Stress are starting to appear everywhere...

Constant research for exceptional products

Helmets / Hans®:

In a new level of research with the best medical teams in the world, we have put at the disposal of certain medical teams with whom we work, a set Hans®/Helmet for extraction training.

Please, also note that the Hans® air padding which we have developed has been tested at Daytona during the Rolex 24 Hours by Emmanuel Collard, who won the race.

We are regularly sought by F1, DTM, WRC, FIA GT, WTCC... to help them fit the Hans® to their needs when they test. Feel free to contact us anytime if you have similar needs.

Racing suits:

The "New generation" ST3000 racing suits are being developed: we are actually testing several breathable & stretchable raw materials in laboratories and in racing cars.



Boots:

The global research program we have on the Heat Stress problems has lead us to develop the special Daytona "Heat Transfer" boots which are actually being tested in the US.

Essentials


Hans®:

Because it is now obvious to all the authorities that the Hans® is a safety device as important as the helmet and the racing suit, the championships in which it has become compulsory are now more and more numerous.
It is the sole head and neck protection authorized in NASCAR and its use has just been made compulsory in Formula BMW and in Formula Renault 2.0.


Gloves:

The FIA in collaboration with Stand 21 has only just refined the standard for the gloves, which has delayed the production process for the new generation of gloves.
We remind you that the new standard will come into force at the end of the year and will be the only authorized in the FIA races from 01/01/2006.


The most breathable racing suit on the world


The sales of the ST2000 stretchy suits have increased at the start of the year by 50%.

The awareness of the drivers towards the Heat stress is the reason why they chose this "total comfort" suit, and the sales should keep on increasing in the following months.
