Partnership with Unequal armors up GASGAS 360 Stunts Race Crew, including Stephen Foord

GLEN MILLS, Pa., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unequal® Technologies, the leading provider of customized, concealed sports protection, has partnered with the GASGAS 360 Race Crew to outfit its EnduroCross and Trialcross athletes competing in EnduroCross this June – and at multiple extreme off-road motorcycle competitions throughout 2014. GASGAS 360 riders will be decked out in the Unequal MAXX for head protection, Cobalt shirt for torso protection, Viper girdle for hip and thigh protection, Ultrathin insoles and custom elbow and shin guards.

Stephen Foord (#63), 2014 King of the Motos team champion, leads the 360 Stunts Race Crew into the 2014 Men's EnduroCross final on June 6. Three-time X Games competitor Lexi Pechout (#151) and fellow GASGAS 360 Stunts Race Crew pilot Melissa Harten-Foord (#11) will be competing in the Women's EnduroCross event, also on June 6. The GASGAS 360 Stunts Race Crew is directed by SAG/AFTRA actor, stuntman and daredevil TJ Austin.

Austin says, "My crew is composed of champions who battle hard traversing boulders, logs, water pits and more. I make sure they have the best protection available as they shoot for the podium. We're geared up in Unequal because their stuff outperforms anything we've ever seen."

"Our customized protective gear gives off-road riders the confidence they need for each competition and jump," said Unequal CEO Rob Vito. "We're excited to be partnered with the GASGAS 360 racing team and wish the best to all athletes rocking Unequal green."

Unequal manufactures protective sports gear for the head, body and sole. Unequal products use a patented composite fortified with military-grade Kevlar®, distinctive green Acceleron and optional ImpacShield to absorb and disperse impact forces beyond the performance of any sports protection of similar weight or thickness.
