Brake lever guards are now required in many racing organizations, including AMA Pro Road Racing.
The Dion Device has a revolutionary design to protect the brake lever in addition to acting as a crash slider to protect the motorcycle.
Richmond, Calif. - March 7, 2013 - LeoVince USA is pleased to announce that the Dion Device has been named the Official Brake Lever Guard of GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing for 2013. The Dion Device is a revolutionary lever guard that is exclusively distributed in the United States by LeoVince USA.
The Dion Device is designed to prevent contact with the front brake during on-track collisions. The innovative design also includes a carbon fiber slider and a high flex-rate reticulated design that help protect the motorcycle in the event of a crash. The Dion Device is the result of two years of development and an additional year of testing, and is now the preferred brake lever guard of professional racers.
Tim Calhoun Executive Vice President of LeoVince USA states: “We know this piece will prevent tragedies like we witnessed two years ago at the Daytona 200 finish. From the day we first met with Stephane it was evident he was on a mission to improve rider safety in this sport. It is an incredible product, both beautiful and effective and we are proud to be partnered with him to sell and service the Dion Device for the United States”.
In celebration of the new relationship between Dion Device and AMA Pro Road Racing, LeoVince USA is offering 40% off MSRP on the guard for all licensed pro racers and teams who will be attending round one of the 2013 season at Daytona International Speedway. Everyone who takes advantage of the offer will automatically receive LeoVince USA sponsorship support for the season to receive replacement products and parts at discounted rates. Any racers wishing to participate should contact LeoVince USA Race Manager David Christensen at (888) 610-4242 or David@LeoVinceUSA.com.
Originator Stephane Dion says, “The original intention of my guard was to protect riders and save lives. What has emerged over the last two years is that it works equally well protecting critical bike components like gas tanks, clip-ons, rear sets and exhaust silencers. Our teams are saving thousands of dollars through reduced crash-induced damage and protecting their riders.”
Many of the top competitors in AMA Pro Road Racing are already using the Dion Device, and brake lever guards are now required in the series. Some of the notable riders who trust their safety to this carefully-engineered guard include Josh Hayes, Josh Herrin, Aaron Yates, Larry Pegram, Cory West, Jake Gagne, JD Beach and Thomas Puerta.
Look for these unique brake lever guards in every AMA Pro Road Racing event as riders continue to choose the Dion Device for its unparalleled design and safety.
