When it comes to protective equipment, constant innovation is a key
factor and there are just a few companies fully committed to innovate
and bring efficient solutions to its consumers as Jett. Passionate and
focused on bringing the best equipment for its riders, Jett was founded
by Remo Berlese, experienced product developer who was also the founder
of the famous brand AXO Equipment, market leader in the 80’s and 90’s.
With the sale of AXO in 1998, Remo began to devote himself to the
development of a superior boot, offering maximum performance without
compromising comfort and mobility. Developed with the cooperation of
motocross legend Damon Bradshaw, Jett went through three years of
R&D, completing tough endurance tests to finally get to the market
and call the attention of renowned riders like the Motocross World
Champion Christophe Pourcel. Since 2014, the brand added a strong ally -
the Pro Tork Group from Brazil. Leader in motorcycle parts
manufacturing in Latin America and one of the largest helmet factories
in the world, Pro Tork invested in a new manufacturing plant in Brazil.
The Jett Global Expansion Plan includes, the distribution of Jett Boots
throughout Latin America, as well as a strong force of sales in the
United States, in addition to Europe through the large distribution
center kept in Treviso.
