The UK California Superbike School has chosen Continental tyres for its fleet of motorcycles, for both its coaching staff and student bike hire. We will be using the brand new ContiSportAttack 3 tyre, featuring multigrip technology that creates a wear resistant central area that progressively increases grip levels towards the shoulder with no sudden change in compound and boasting huge improvements in wet weather performance thanks to a redesigned tread pattern and rain grip compound.
The Italian manufacturer is another long-term sponsor and supplies boots, gloves, back protectors and under-suits for our coaches. During this time they have gone on to develop and produce leathers, which we also use. The suits we currently use have to cope with the demands of the heat in Dubai and India, the damp and wet conditions of the UK as well as the extreme cold in Sweden and Norway.
The California Superbike School continues its partnership with HJC Helmets, supplied to us by Oxford Products. Our riding coaches will be well equipped once again with the brand new R-PHA-11 during the 2017 season and the same helmets will also be available for hire to our students.
The California Superbike School are very proud to partner with Oakley UK and our coaches will be very well equipped with a range of Oakley products.

From there, the company has grown through decades of innovation, bringing new product technologies that blend science and art into a global brand that has become the mark of excellence and iconic design.

StompGrip Traction Pads
Custom designed to fit on the bike’s fuel tank and frame, StompGrip Traction Pads use volcano profile traction bumps to give the rider increased contact with the motorcycle; improving lower body grip, reducing upper body fatigue and in turn, helping to eliminate arm pump – a condition which results from gripping the handlebars too tightly. They fit perfectly with what we teach.
BikeSafe has chosen the California Superbike School to pilot a unique partnership between the Police and a track training provider. CSS was chosen due to its outstanding reputation within the industry. Staff from BikeSafe have assessed the training delivered and were extremely impressed with the professional team that has been assembled, the quality and detail given in the theory and practical sessions and the level of control and safety at the event: "This is a team of committed and enthusiastic individuals whose goal is to help riders understand how a motorcycle is affected by the rider and how best to overcome this. They deliver this in easy to digest classroom sessions followed by on track experience, coaching and feedback. You can develop at your own rate under no pressure with clever control measures to keep everyone safe. Riders of all abilities and machine types are made welcome with the emphasis throughout the day on rider development not showing off. These skills while learnt in a track environment are directly transferable to road riding. BikeSafe staff who experienced Level 1 are long serving Police motorcyclists who both acknowledged the course had improved their riding!"
