Kawasaki Racing Team and J.Juan sign new two year deal

There is no stopping the productive partnership between Catalan brake system company J.Juan and the Kawasaki Racing Team who have just announced a continuation of their association for the 2021 and 2022 seasons. 

In eight years the relationship has resulted in seven WorldSBK championships and six manufacturer titles with J.Juan supplying the official factory Kawasaki superbike team with mesh type hydraulic hoses creating the perfect braking feeling at the extremes of performance. 
Extending their sponsorship and technical relationship, KRT will benefit from the considerable research and development resources of J.Juan, a company with expertise in all aspects of braking hardware and, increasingly the electro-mechanical and software side of this fast evolving business.

“It is a pleasure to renew this partnership with a company we all admire. M. Angels, Juan Luis, now Alessio - plus the entire workforce - are committed to product development and excellence. Our riders and technicians are confident using their braking solutions and they know the only way to win championships is if you have the best technical partners. For KRT, renewing this deal made perfect sense!” 
Six time World Champion, Jonathan Rea has good cause to thank J.Juan commenting: 
“Racing is as much about stopping as going and J.Juan mesh hoses are extremely reliable. The feeling is as good on the first corner as it is on the last allowing me to focus on race strategy and, naturally, winning!" 
For 2022 recruit, Alex Lowes, the positive feelings are shared: 
"Since joining KRT and using the J.Juan brake components on my Ninja ZX-10RR I have discovered even more confidence when braking. The consistency of the brake lever during race has been remarkable and allowed me to focus on chasing podium places." 
Upon signing of the agreement, Ángeles Juan, vice president of J.Juan, and leader of meshed hydraulic hoses department, commented: 
“J.Juan it is proud to continue to collaborate technically with a team with high professional and human qualities”.
