When you take the decision to invest in a KBC helmet, you are buying a unique piece of safety equipment from the Worlds most innovative helmet manufacturer. No other helmet brand looks or feels like a KBC.
KBC have been manufacturing motorcycle helmets for almost 20 years. Our first helmet was a snowmobile helmet manufactured for Arctic
Cat in 1991. In the ensuing years, KBC started manufacturing helmets for private-label firms, including Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, Suzuki,
Fox, and many others.
KBC has been working on creating our own image and brand name in the helmet world. Today KBC is one of the fastest growing helmet brands in the world with its head office situated in Los Angeles, and in 2002 establishing its European Headquarters in the UK.
Helmets exist for one reason alone - to reduce the amount of impact energy transmitted to the head in the event of an accident. The outer shell of the helmet absorbs the initial impact, dissipating it
through the inner shell which then absorbs a great
deal of energy and inertia, effectively cushioning the brain's deceleration.
KBC are constantly striving to fuse the latest technological developments with distinctive graphics, to deliver unrivaled performance and style. All of our products are precision engineered to deliver outstanding comfort, fit and safety making KBC a high quality helmet and exceptional value for money.
All of KBC's helmets are produced to the highest specifications required for different motorcycle markets, including the stringent American SNELL safety standard, American DOT, Australian QAS, European ECE 2205 and the UK's ACU Gold standard.

Brothers, Robert and Matt Davis were blessed to have parents that took them to race motocross in 1978. For the next 8 years a passion for the sport developed that has lasted until present day and has no signs of stopping. By 1986, eldest brother, Robert, had turned his hobby of screen printing into a business called Graphics Lab, making stickers for the top skateboard companies at the time. By the early 90's the two were making stickers for several MX brands and local dealerships. By 1992 the Throttle Jockey brand was born. Straight out of the gate they got a call to make graphics for the historic Peak/Pro Circuit/Honda team with the soon to be King of SX, Jeremy McGrath. Now on their 11th year as a sponsor of Factory Honda, Throttle Jockey, a.k.a T.J. continues to pump out quality and original products like it's infamous "retro" replica kits to its' recent launch of iNSiGNiA; T.J.'s custom line of graphics.
We’ve made suspension for 35 years, so we know how to design and manufacture the best suspension you can buy. We started out as an engineering company and things haven’t changed. We focus on making high performance products without compromise. This philosophy doesn’t always go over well with the bean counters, but our owner is an engineer — and the boss is always right!
We design suspension solutions for the sports of ATV, Mountain Biking, Motocross, Off-road and Snowmobile. We know that passion is what drives you out on the trails and tracks of this world. It is this passion that pushes us to make unequalled suspension.
At FOX Racing Shox, we race what we sell, and we race what we manufacture on our production line. We take product off the assembly line and send it to our world class sponsored athletes, confident that it will perform flawlessly. We know there is no harsher test of a product’s worthiness than to mount it onto a professional athlete’s race machine, so we utilize the world’s best testers — our sponsored athletes — as an integral part of our product development process.
We are a racing based, product driven company and we don’t limit our winning, performance driven attitude to just the race course. It happens everyday at FOX. And really, that’s the reason the products come out the way that they do. Our founder, Bob Fox, said, “It’s a competitive world out there — it’s a Darwinian world. Our goal is to make the best product a customer can buy. That’s where we started; that’s where we are today. We are not going to sit back and say we’re done. We’re never done.”

The Best Suspension, and more!
The United States enters a new era in many aspects, especially the way companies look at the economy as it relates to their industry and individuals like yourself when considering how to spend your hard earned money. Factory Connection has been preparing for 2010 and beyond for over 20 years since its inception in 1988. Our Mission: to provide quality workmanship and the best suspension performance, products and customer/technical support resulting in The Best Suspension. PERIOD.
Factory Connection realizes there are many choices when choosing a suspension company. You should consider a number of variables when choosing the correct company for your suspension needs. This is why we focus on several key initiatives that will result in 1 common goal for you and us...The Best Suspension. PERIOD.
Experience/Testing – Factory Connection is a team of over 30 employees with over 150 years of suspension industry experience. Each individual’s creativity, knowledge and ideas are utilized to create the best working personalized suspension settings for each customer. The primary difference with Factory Connection suspension is… we look at the entire system design of the Forks, Shock and chassis in order to enhance qualities and eliminate original weaknesses.
Every setting is created off of countless hours of testing that encompasses input and effort from at least 5 of our technical team leaders. Most companies have 1, maybe 2 technicians creating settings. Factory Connection has 5 professionals with local, national, Canadian and world championships to their credit. The result is a suspension component that has been modified to provide you with the most consistent, controlled, predictable and confidence inspiring performance available in the marketplace.
Innovation/Re-design – The Research and Development department continued to pursue not only new and innovative ideas, but also to re-design and improve the performance products we offer. Factory Connection Fork and Shock springs continue to lead the industry in quality, consistency, fitment and performance.
Our R&D engineer and manufacturing managers have developed two new series of springs (ALS series Shock spring for 09 CRF450R & 09 KXF450, LLS series Fork springs for 09 CRF450) and re-designed virtually every model spring we make. Some of our Shock springs are now up to 13% lighter (290 grams) and we have durability tested up to 500,000 cycles when the OEM standard is 200,000 cycles.
Our Fork springs are designed specifically for your fork type and do NOT require any spacers like many of our competitor’s springs. Factory Connection designs our springs to meet high standards and they must pass 2 Quality Assurance inspections before we approve any production run.
Another excellent example is the KTM/WP Reservoir Bladder kit. We innovated this product in 2000. In 2003 we changed the original 52mm model and designed it to work on the 2003 KTM’s. For 2009 we have re-designed to offer more volume which provides smoother action, cooler shock temperatures and less shock fade.
Customer Service – Our customers past, present and future are our #1 priority. Factory Connection’s mission is not only to meet, but to exceed your expectations. As each of us reflect back on the previous years, we are amazed at how many of our customers have also become our friends. The Factory Connection team culture is to treat you not just as a customer, but more importantly as an off-road motorcycling friend.
Turn Around Time – The majority of the year our suspension service turn around time is 1-2 business days. We enjoy riding and racing as much as you do. This is the reason we employ the most experienced technicians and customer service professionals in the industry. For those critical situations we offer expedited service. Call us to schedule guaranteed same day suspension service at no extra charge.
Thank you for considering and choosing us as your suspension company.

The Crusty Demons are a group of daredevil motorcyclists from the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
This all started in 1994 when filmmakers Jon Freeman and Dana Nicholson had been accumulating footage to showcase a behind the scenes expose of the lifestyle of an American pro motocross rider in action, 145ft plus jumps, 45ft high in the air soaring over sand dunes, mountains, houses, buses and anything else secure and steep enough to hold the weight of bike and rider.
The end result was Fleshwound Films and the first video Crusty Demons of Dirt . The launch of this video was to change the face of motocross and create a sport that has become the most popular of all extreme sports today, Freestyle Motocross (FMX) .
Fleshwound Films spent two years gathering footage for the first motocross film and 1994 saw the release of Crusty Demons of Dirt . The excitement and hysteria the film created was phenomenal and its success brought about a lot of poachers. Although others were out there trying to create motocross videos, none managed to achieve quite the same impact that Crusty had. Following the success of the first film, Crusty 2 was premiered 18 months later. Sales exceeded expectations and tripled from the first video as the Crusty phenomenon began spreading worldwide. What was somewhat a stagnant sport had received a positive injection of interest and proved its worthiness of being showcased Internationally. People began buying the clothing worn by their heroes (Fleshgear) and thousands around the world were getting bikes and heading for the racetrack, mountains, sand dunes and the sky.
It was only to grow bigger. With the release of Crusty 3 in 1997 and the videos and sport still booming with popularity, freestyle motocross pioneers Lofty and Brian Jordan went to Fleshwound Films with the idea of staging a freestyle motocross competition. Four months later the first competition was held in Las Vegas. This new side of the sport was looked down upon by the industry and many people said it would go nowhere - the excitement amongst the fans indicated that they strongly disagreed.
Before long FMX was introduced as a new sport in the 99 X games in San Francisco and was given worldwide exposure through ESPN television. FMX was then stamped as the king of Extreme, becoming the number one sport at the X Games.
Competition requires riders to travel a course for 90 seconds performing as many tricks as possible, which are judged by a panel. Usually about 10 jumps are completed in this time bracket and riders compete for prize money.
Fleshwound Films undoubtedly played a crucial part in the evolution of the sport, they are still shooting Crusty Films today and recently released the 10th instalment titled – Crusty X – A Decade of Dirt. They have successfully implemented their vision into the industry, introducing the world to their friends and lifestyles whilst creating gods in the stars of their video series. A highlight for them has been coming up with such a unique idea; planning to make it happen and seeing it grow beyond their vision internationally. Travelling to film in Australia, Japan, Brazil, Africa and Peru to name a few, has meant Fleshwound Films created 'The National Geographic of motocross'.
It all started with a simple idea and steadily became “An Army of ONE”.
The army began assembling in the heart of San Diego, California back in 1997. The simple idea of creating the most innovative, high quality motorcycle graphics rapidly progressed into a complete line of leading edge products that redefined industry standards.
Long recognized as the world leader in graphic kits and seat covers, the ONE brand has grown to become a leading force in helmets, motocross apparel and casual wear. While the company has grown, the philosophy remains the same and the focus is always to make the best products we possibly can. Motocross is the toughest sport in the world. We have spent countless hours with some of the most talented names in all of motocross, fueling our passion of creating products that can endure the many battles that occur in a championship season.
Our goal is simply to win.
But, we will do this by never forgetting our roots and maintaining our core focus on the products and sport where our passion was born. ONE products don't only look cool, but they are created by pushing the limits of technology while combining a style that is unique to us. We focus on delivering creativity, innovation and quality with a unique element that no one else has. We look beyond borders and take part in battles on motocross and supercross tracks around the world. If there is a race, you will find us there. Every day we dream about how to make the ride even better.
There is no finish line.
