AXO Sport was established in 1978 in Italy
Just in time for the first practice of the Daytona 200 the 19 year-old Canadian rider was outfitted with the latest AXO Indy Leather Race Suits, KK4-R Gloves and Aragon Race Boots to give him maximum protection in the fierce AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike championship.
AXO Sport was established in 1978 in Italy and immediately became an industry leader in footwear, clothing and protective apparel for motorcycle enthusiasts. In 2003 AXO America Inc. was established in California due to it being a vibrant commercial center and an important R&D location.
Along with their technicians and designers AXO put together a crew who is dedicated to two wheels. Their design and R&D departments are on a continuous quest to find the best materials and design applications for racing and riding in an effort to guarantee the best quality and to offer the highest safety to all riders.

AXO sponsors riders in MotoGP, Superbike, Motocross, Supermoto and other side championships. AXO products are especially developed with the feedback given by riders like Loris Capirossi, James Toseland, Ivan Lazzarini, Sylvain Guintoli and many others.
Young, enthusiastic with being in such fine company and becoming part of the AXO family said; “I’m very excited about partnering AXO America. I have known and respected the AXO name for years growing up in Scotland and racing in the UK. One of my race heros Neil Hodgson wore AXO for years. Now using AXO myself, I feel my racing career is starting to truly come together with this great step forward”.
Young will be sporting his new AXO gear during the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike championship’s opening round during the legendary Daytona 200 at Daytona International Speedway, March 14-16th 2013.
