The Supermoto Army brand was created in April 2019 by three partners, Steph Legrand, Julien Peron and Matthieu Pierron. Its purpose is to promote supermoto, both on the road and on the track. The brand invests in the community by contributing to the promotion of the activity on social networks, in Europe and internationally. Among its current projects, the brand is supporting several riders to increase the visibility of the discipline. In addition, a line of clothing and accessories will soon be available.
Among the three founders, all passionate about motorcycles, two have been involved for many years in the world of supermoto. By combining their skills, they wish to contribute to a strong supermoto identity, going beyond competition, and complementary to the commitment of established players.
