FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 06, 2010 – This year marks the 20th anniversary celebrating AGVSPORT’s sponsorship of the California Superbike School. Keith Code, founder of the number one bike school, has taught over 100,000 racers including 15 superbike champions who have taken AGVSPORT leathers to the podium. To add on to their historic year AGVSPORT has reached a long term and exclusive licensing agreement with their official U.S. distributor Motonation (http://www.motonation.com), a San Diego based company offering products from American and Italian designers. Motonation now has coverage from head-to-toe of the highest quality motorcycle gear from AGVSPORT, SIDI, and VEMAR.
In 1978, AGV USA, a division of Intersport, Inc., became the official importer of AGV Helmets for the United States. Founded in 1985, this year marks the 25th anniversary of AGVSPORT Group Inc which is one of the oldest riders owned and operated apparel companies in the industry. Under the direction of Michael Parrotte (http://www.parrotte.net) they make sure their products are engineered for maximum functionality without compromising abrasion resistance and comfort.
Identical products worn by AGVSPORT professional riders, most notably four-time AMA Superbike champion Mat Mladin, can be purchased by the general public. Each product is designed by riders for riders and function is never sacrificed for aesthetics. Keeping product development with Sportbike enthusiasts in house they stay loyal to our dedicated followers who respect the quality and value of AGVSPORT.
The 2010 product line has had nothing but good review most notably from trackdaymag.com (http://www.trackdaymag.com/Articles/AGV-Sport-Laguna-1-piece-suit.aspx) regarding their Laguna suit. “Overall, the functionality of the AGV Sport suit was so good that when he switched back to his regular leathers later in the day, our tester immediately felt hot… This is one serious suit and the price is right in line with the cost of similar garments from other top brands.” The review goes on to say that the suit has immense functionality and comfort even after a tedious day at the track. It can be purchased through Motonation or found at one of their vendor displays on an upcoming weekend.
Moving forward this year AGVSPORT will be at the 2010 Red Bull Indy MotoGP at the Indianapolis Motorspeedway the 27th to the 29th of August. In addition to the MotoGP, they will also be present at the New Jersey round of the AMA Pro Superbike Championship at New Jersey Motorsports Park the 3rd to the 5th of September. With a vendor space at both events being filled with the famous Laguna suits as well as premium leather jacket and pant separates, it can’t be missed.

AGV Sport’s Group, Inc. is a motorcycle apparel company specializing in products that meet every need of the on track racer and road motorcyclist.
Track riding is an athletic endeavor. We crawl all over our machines as we do a lap, punishing muscles and gushing sweat. We expect our leathers to be protective, accepting that there will be certain compromises to our mobility and comfort as a result. Now imagine your dream leather suit. You’d be protected, absolutely comfortable, completely unhindered in your movement around the bike and you’d look like a million bucks in the bargain. Do such leathers even exist? Well, now they do.
We tested this suit during an unseasonably hot trackday at Gingerman Raceway in Michigan. After our first session in the new AGV Sport Laguna 1-piece leather suit, we were spouting words like, “Ergonomics! Design! User friendliness!” In use, the Laguna feels as if it had been created by a serious racetrack rider who’d decided once and for all to fix what he didn’t like about wearing leathers. The suit worked so well that we immediately took it back off so that we could study the garment more closely in an attempt to determine its secrets. The Laguna provides a very different experience from suits we’ve tried in the past and we wanted to know how this had been accomplished.
