The Superstock race at the Vauxhall International Northwest 200 held earlier this year in Northern Ireland, was red flagged after a serious accident involving Dean Harrison, Stephen Thompson and Horst Saiger. The crash occurred at 100mph+ on a stretch of track between the York corner and the Mill road roundabout, resulting in Saiger and Thompson being taken away in an ambulance for treatment. But, thanks to Spada, Harrison walked away unhurt.

Harrison’s remarkable escape was due to the durability of his racing leathers - he was wearing the Spada Curve suit. The Spada leather took the full brunt of Harrison’s slide off his bike at around 100mph and, luckily for the rider, the suit did exactly what it was designed to do.

Said Harrison; “I couldn’t be more pleased with the Spada Curve leathers, they held up really well and I have no doubt that they’re the reason I was able to get up and wasn’t in that ambulance, I’d put my trust in them every time.”

Mark Ingleby, Head of Spada Design; “Obviously, we are really happy that our Spada leathers kept Dean safe, it’s our number one priority when we sponsor a rider. We put the same effort in developing the protection in all our products so every customer is safe and comfortable on the roads.”
