Jorge Lorenzo has announced that he has signed a helmet sponsorship deal with HJC helmets.
Lorenzo had previously been racing with X-Lite helmets, but at a recent Nolan Helmets Christmas event it was announced that Lorenzo would be moving to another manufacturer. Nolan presented Lorenzo with a commemorative helmet to pay tribute to the years and the success that he has had whilst wearing X-Lite helmets.
George Hong, the President of HJC Helmets for America said:
“We are very proud to sign Jorge Lorenzo for the 2013 season as well as our other top riders.”
It is said that Lorenzo will wear the HJC RPHA helmet, a model that has previously been worn and had development input from Ben Spies.
It is rumored that HJC will have the first range of HJC Jorge Lorenzo models available for sale by Spring 2013.
