Cassons press release:
Western Australian talent Connor Tierney set to compete this year in the Pro MX Championship, supported by key off road brands Bell, O’Neal, Leatt and Gaerne.
Riding the SB Motorsport Suzuki RM-Z450, Connors lines up in the Pro MX MX1 series in some of the best international brands available right now.
Connor Tierney shares his thoughts on his new bike setup & gear combo, featuring the latest gear from O’Neal, Bell, Leatt & Gaerne.
“I have been back into the pre-season program and after being lucky enough to try out my new Bell/O’Neal/Gaerne/Leatt combo I have going from Cassons Australia I have been so impressed.”
Connor lines up this year in the awesome Bell Moto-9 Flex helmet.
“After talking with the team from Bell and learning about the ins and outs of the helmets I was blown away by the technology in the impact absorption systems as well as the fit. The helmet also has such a great airflow and quality pads which I can’t seem to wear out. I love it!”
For 2021, Leatt presents the 5.5 Goggle Roll-Off.
“Leatt have really done well with their latest range of goggles. Usually doing long pre-season motos sweat in your eyes seems almost inevitable but the dispersion on the goggles is so good! Haven’t had a drop in my eyes yet. I also love how good the quality of the ‘bullet proof’ lense is. They are so easy to get crystal clear even after being trashed in the mud for a few days.”
Connor wears the O’Neal Mayhem Hexx gear for season 2021 of the Pro MX.
“The O’Neal gear has come such a long way of late and would have to be some of the comfiest fitting gear I’ve ever worn having lots of adjustment on the hips and a lot of stretchy material around the knee braces which definitely helps being able to get a size that fits me perfectly in length and around the waist being a taller guy!”
The SG12 is the boot of choice for top Pro riders in the US, Europe and Australia for motocross, Supercross and Enduro riding.
“Now down to the Gaerne’s, they’ve been proven time and time again that they’re awesome boots with some pretty bad ass guys overseas killing it in them but what I liked the most was how quickly they ran in and felt comfortable without sacrificing that tight safe feel around the ankles! Nothing worse than a set of boots that takes 5 hours to feel normal.”
