Leading Italian helmet manufacturer KASK can announce they have renewed their partnership with Stephex Stables, one of the world’s most prestigious trading stables.
The partnership will see KASK provide sponsorship support to Stephex Stables and their team of riders. Established in 1986, the Belgium-based stables are internationally-recognized for their horse breeding and hosting of top-tier show jumping competitions. About a dozen horses that have competed in the Olympic Games have passed through Stephex Stables.
The stables’ team of international riders, who will be supported with equipment and promotional opportunities from KASK, includes two-time Olympian Daniel Deusser, who won bronze at the Rio Games, Michael Hughes, Kendra Claricia Brinkop and Petronella Andersson. Sisters Zoé and Emilie Conter, daughters of Stephan Conter, the founder and CEO of Stephex Stables, are also part of the impressive lineup.
KASK’s roster of renowned international riders also includes Olympic gold medalists Henrik von Eckermann, Dorothee Schneider and Carl Hester, top show jumper Kent Farrington and eventing duo Tim and Jonelle Price.
Stephan Conter, founder and CEO of Stephex Stables, said: “We are thrilled to continue this fantastic partnership with KASK, who design and produce riding helmets which are industry leading.
We aim to provide our riders with everything they need to be the best and KASK helmets combine elegant style with unrivaled safety. Feeling protected is paramount for riders and with this partnership our athletes can perform with the assurance that their helmets have no equal in terms of quality.”
Diego Zambon, general director of KASK, said: “Stephex Stables are one of the most respected names in equestrian and it is truly a privilege to collaborate with them. Their reputation, track record and riders are first-class so we are absolutely delighted to continue this important collaboration in the years ahead. We first started working with Stephex Stables and their riders in 2015 and see this as the perfect partnership. We are two companies who share a commitment to excellence in equestrian and a pride in celebrating the amazing talent of some of the sport’s elite athletes.”
With a mission of balancing technological innovation, functionality, safety, comfort and their exclusive ‘Made in Italy’ design, KASK specializes in manufacturing top-of-the-range safety helmets for the most demanding customers.
They are constantly researching and looking for ways to go beyond and improve the quality of their KASK helmets, which are available to athletes in skiing, cycling, mountaineering and horse riding, as well as rescue and safety professionals.
