Partnership renewed both in form and content with the Briko brand which also in 2021 will be a partner of the #GreenTeam for the supply of helmets and eyewear. Visconti and his teammates will wear a new helmet, the Quasar, in a special cyclamen color. The basic.Net group brand will also supply the team with the new Starlight sunglasses.
Bardiani CSF Faizanè and Briko will continue to ride together also in the 2021 season. A renewal not only on paper, but of substance, with a new helmet, the Quasar, in a special cyclamen team edition color, perfectly matched to the new colors adopted by the team from 2020.
In addition to the helmets, Briko’s sponsorship also includes the supply of sunglasses. Their name is Starlight, their color is black with 3 types of interchangeable lenses.
Giovanni Visconti had the opportunity to test Briko’s new products during the Spanish training camp, also inaugurating them in their European debut at the Clasica Comunitat Valenciana: “Briko products made an excellent first impression on me. The helmet has two features that I really like, besides of course the design. It lets you breathe a lot even with the temperatures of these days in Spain of about 24 degrees that make themselves felt uphill and fits precisely giving a great feeling of security as when you wear it it remains firmly in position. Sunglasses are also a great product, they guarantee optimal vision and interchangeable lenses allow you to always have good visibility. Even when I was training at home on foggy days, I had perfect visibility by changing lenses.”
Alfonso De Antoni, Briko Sales Director, said: “We are very proud to be together once again for the start of a new adventure between BRIKO and the Bardiani team. We completely embrace the philosophy of having an Italian soul with the aim to grow up young talents. Our idea is to collaborate and continue to develop products together. With the new QUASAR helmet and STARLIGHT Sunglasses we are sure we have given the tools to face an intense season and we are confident in great performance. We are ready to support Bardiani CSF Faizanè team in race!”
THE PRODUCTS OF THE PARTNERSHIP.
The Quasar helmet, among top of the Briko range, is characterized by a low aerodynamic resistance. The different ventilation holes and the internal channels allow the rapid dissipation of heat and humidity, improving performance without neglecting safety. In fact the upper area is reinforced with an internal structure in Nylon ST 801 which increases the protection against impacts. Quasar is built with a Full molding technology to create a total polycarbonate coating: upper shell, base ring, back shell are joined to the polystyrene inner shell ensuring better shock absorption. It has a removable and washable inner padding and an insect net.
The Starlight sunglasses are the lightest one of the Briko range. The goal for this model was to create the simplest eyewear possible. Make it as easy as possible to change lenses, reduce weight as much as possible, offer the widest field of vision. Thus, was born Starlight 3 Lenti, a Rimless model equipped with an exclusive quick-release lens mechanism to allow maximum ease of use, silicone nose pads adjustable in 3 positions, anti-slip rubber temple tips. The wide lens with an ergonomic shape allows an incomparable vision both superior and perimeter, not blocking your view in any direction. This model included three OLens Sun by Briko, the first mirrored in category 3 to protect from sunlight, the second in category 1 and yellow in the most adverse weather conditions and the third, clear category 0 to allow you to run too at night.
