December 2019 – Sparco presents its 2020 collection, new catalogue and a brand ambassador of the first order − Antonio Giovinazzi. The only F1 driver from Italy, for the F1 Alfa Romeo Racing team, Giovinazzi, with longstanding ties with Sparco is testimonial for the new Sparco 2020 catalogue, with its upgraded products line.
The ideal testimonial for Sparco’s apparel for racers (and others), Antonio has chosen the Prime+ suit, shoes and underwear – i.e. the entire set of Sparco apparel (upgraded to the new standards set by the latest FIA 8856-2018 homologation procedure). He’ll wear this gear during the next F1 world championship event, and will also use items from the re-designed Teamwear line, including the new bags and casual clothing.
The Sparco 2020 catalogue shall be officially presented in January at the Autosport International show in Birmingham. About 80% of the products presented are new or have been restyled or redesigned. The novelty value of these products is reflected in the innovative graphic design of the more than 300 pages dedicated to Racing, Karting, Performance, Sim Racing, Chairs, Teamwear/Bags/Merchandising, Youth/Baby and E-Mobility.
“For Formula 1, each detail, however small, must receive absolute attention”, says Antonio Giovinazzi, “and today’s drivers − if they want to remain competitive, with the best performance ratings − can leave absolutely nothing to chance. With its ultralight Prime+ and technical apparel, Sparco provides a perfect combination of performance and comfort excellence, so I can concentrate fully on my driving”.
Prime+ is a fully customizable ‘extreme’ four-layer suit, with ultralight details such as zip closure with double slider, ultrathin collar, extra flat seams and seamless cuffs and ankles.
Prime+ shoes are top-of-the-range footwear products designed for the world’s key motorsport events, complying with the latest FIA homologation. Weighing less than 190 g (foot size 42), Prime+ shoes feature the upper in kangaroo skin, external perforations, anti-perspiration inner lining for maximum breathability, and extra-thin soles (lowering the weight yet further, while maximizing pedal feedback).
Sparco’s Arrow gloves, selected by Antonio Giovinazzi and by all F1 and WRC drivers, feature HTX technology based on a synthetic polymer with higher performance standards than standard silicones, providing better grip, flexibility and breathability.
Sparco underwear consists in the latest versions of our balaclava, T-shirt and pants, with 12-second flame resistance. The structure is in two-layer weave, with breathable inserts at the critical points, and seams the flatness of which can be felt directly on the skin.
Apart from the apparel included in this line, Antonio Giovinazzi has also personally tested out the new collection of Sparco bags, i.e. the full traveller’s set (“Tour” bag, “Travel” trolley, “Stage” backpack). The collection is designed to be used not only by racers. A special feature is the use, for closure, of the tapes of the Sparco racing belts.
