U-Mask for KTM Racing

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing is once again heading to Dakar in 2022. A rally team that recorded 18 consecutive victories between 2001 and 2019, they are sure to impress across the ~8,000km route. As with last year, the team will also be benefiting from wearing U-Mask.

Preparing for Dakar 2022

The Dakar Rally is the most famous and prestigious race in the rally calendar. Taking place in January each year, the race is a grueling endeavor across 13 days that sees racers riding at high speed across hugely difficult terrain and understandably draws a huge crowd from across the world.

U-Mask offers protection against Covid-19 as Red Bull KTM travels the world

U-Mask is helping Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in a variety of different ways as the team travels throughout the rally calendar. Masks are required in the vast majority of countries around the world and they provide a uniform and fashionable look, specially customised for Red Bull KTM. Of course, they also ensure that traveling is as safe as possible.

Protection from dust particles in extreme environments

It isn’t just about travel either with athletes and staff able to be kept safe throughout their time at each destination. Because of the nature of the rally, the environment changes from place to place and U-Mask is adept at responding to different environments.

Most who wear U-Mask only ever encounter an urban environment but the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing calendar sees them travel across numerous extreme and harsh environments. Desert dust can be particularly troublesome so U-Mask ensures the safety and health of the team throughout the Dakar Rally and the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship and ensures that respiratory issues don’t develop.

"Dakar is always an extremely rewarding race but the desert can be a harsh and unforgiving environment. We are always looking to ensure the safety of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team and U-Mask was the perfect choice in being able to offer branding, style, comfort, and of course, protection."
