Throughout competition, the racers will be utilizing Shock Doctor’s Gravity 2 action sport mouthguard. Designed specifically for helmeted sports, this mouthguard allows riders to speak and breathe easier with the use of custom mold on lower teeth. They will also use Shock Doctor’s Moto Short Lite compression short, MotoX Performance Insole and Eject Helmet Removal System, which provides emergency neck and spine protection after a motorsport crash. The PowerDry Helmet Dryer, and PowerDry Motosport Gear and Helmet Bags, will also be used by the team.
In addition to becoming the new title sponsor and providing products for team use, Shock Doctor will further the relationship with the introduction of KTM-specific Shock Doctor products. The line will be offered in the KTM PowerWear catalog beginning in 2010.
