KASK x INEOS Britannia and the Great Britain SailGP Team
We are pleased to announce long-term partnerships supporting two of Britain’s highest-performing sailing teams: America’s Cup challenger INEOS Britannia and the Great Britain SailGP Team.
INEOS Britannia wants to be the first British team to ever win America’s Cup, the oldest international sporting trophy in the world.
Led by Sir Ben Ainslie and backed by INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the team has really pushed the boundaries of technology and engineering as they design their AC75 Racing Boat to compete in the 37th America’s Cup in Barcelona in 2024.
The Great Britain SailGP Team meanwhile, compete on the annual SailGP circuit which features nine national teams battling in short, intense races at iconic stadium-style venues across the globe, building to the Grand Final – and sailing’s top prize of $1million USD.
Both teams will wear KASK sailing helmets which have been uniquely engineered for their complex and demanding needs. They have been specifically engineered via a collaborative approach between the KASK R&D team and technicians and athletes from both teams.
The rules of the 37th America’s Cup mean that pedal power returns onboard the AC75 race boats. INEOS Britannia cycling athletes, known as ‘Cyclors’, have also drawn upon KASKs broader expertize in road cycling to wear KASK helmets. Road cycling forms an integral part of the cyclors’ training, with INEOS Britannia joining the INEOS Grenadiers’ training camp in Palma di Mallorca last December.
