Ducati builds emotions. The world’s most attractive motorcycles are the result of a deep commitment to racing competitions; they are the purest expression of refined skill, unmistakable design and above all, a great passion for bikes. Ducati UK supply our riding coaches with 1299 and 959 Panigales and the new 2017 SuperSport and we are very pleased to be able to offer a hire fleet of the said same bikes for you to sample and enjoy.
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 2018 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. Founded in 1975, with the simple idea of making products that work and look better than anything else out there, the very first Oakley product was a new kind of motorcycle handgrip with a unique tread and shape that fitted the rider's closed hand. 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.

Manufactured under the strictest quality control, Draggin Jeans are engineered to perform when it really counts.
Although we don’t like crashes from our students or on-track riding coaches, it does happen from time to time so we use R&G Racing crash protectors to keep the damage to a minimum.

You’ll also see their updated knee sliders used by our riding coaches.

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!"

I did level 3 again in Mondello and within 5 seconds of sitting on a parked bike the coach picked up on a small mistake I was making that when corrected made a big difference in how I got on when I went out on track. By the time we got half way through the hip flick drill everything was clicking back in to place and I noticed a massive difference in my riding and confidence on the bike.
David - Level 1 Student
I completed level 1 at Brands Hatch. Wow what a day! It completely changed my style of riding. I feel so much more confident and in control now. Worth every penny. Every member of the team was fantastic. I can't wait to come back for level 2.

Scott P - Student
CSS has been one of the most exciting and enlightening things I have ever done.
The difference in my knowledge and riding is incredible. So much fun.
The feeling of putting in to practice what you have been taught, and then getting it right, is one of the best feelings ever.
Simon K - Student
Every member of the team made everyone feel welcome and relaxed, and the atmosphere among all of the students was lively and friendly.
I learnt a lot about what I was doing wrong with my riding and how to correct it which changed the way I rode. Big thanks to my instructor Duncan for spotting where I was going wrong and fixing it, Level 2 next.
Mat - Student
The most professional, talented group of people doing a job they are very clearly 100% committed to, and passionate about!
