2013 X Brand AthletesMonday, January 7, 2013 | 3:35 PM
EKS Brand goggles is pleased and proud to announce the 2013 athletes that will be representing EKS BRAND to see their way clear to the finish line. Whether it’s the highest levels of supercross, motocross or off-road racing, we have some of the fastest guys in the world covered!
Leading the way is #11 Kyle Chisholm of the Velocity 3 Racing team. Chisholm is in his fourth year of wearing EKS and knows the value of clear vision and a superior product helps him to do his best. His teammate Bobby Kiniry is new this year to the EKS family and we’re pumped to have Bobby in the USA supercross series as well as the entire Canadian outdoor nationals.
Privateer Jimmy Albertson will be running the Beer Optics line of goggles and is a believer that life is better looking through Beer Optics. Les Smith is on a KTM and looking to take that next step forward in his career with the help of EKS. Also running EKS is Ben LaMay on the Rock River Yamaha team.
In the 250SX class EKS has Travis Baker of the Valli Motorsports Yamaha team as well as Austin Politelli of JAB Motorsports. We’re pumped to have them on board to go with privateer heroes Nick Palluzzi, Michael Leib and PJ Larsen.
In the off-road division, EKS Brand is pumped to continue our relationship with past GNCC off-road champion Josh Strang and for 2013, we’ve added multi-time National Enduro Champion Mike Lafferty. X-Game Endurocross specialists Cody Webb and Cory Graffunder are on board as are top off-road teams like Far Racing Husqvarna with its stars Andrew De Long and Nic Davis, Jason Raines Racing’s Jebidiah Haines and Brad Bakken and Randy Hawkins Racing with Jordan Ashburn.
We’ve got the ATV crowd covered in EKS also with the top three National ATV Motocross riders in Davi Haagsma, Dustin Nelson and Beau Barron.
The FMX rider for EKS is Lance Coury, look for him upside down at a venue near you.
Flat Trackers, and past national champions Sammy Halbert and Henry Wiles will also be representing the X as they slide their way to the front of the pack in the Grand National Flat Track series.
The GOX goggle is our standard size adult goggles. The face fit is unmatched and the quality is second to none. The patented EKS Brand four layer face foam has proven to be the most effective sweat absorbing foam on the market today. The unique “face forming” polyurethane blend frame allows for a fit unmatched by any other goggles available.
