Some of the best feedback we have for our exhaust systems come from our sponsored riders. From the desert to backcountry trails, to national MX tracks and arenacross circuits, our sponsored riders give us the opportunity to test our exhaust systems against a number of different conditions (distance, weather, terrain, etc.) This opportunity gives us a great advantage as we continue to research and develop Barker’s exhaust systems for our customers.
You may already be familiar with our sponsored rider, Juan Pirrunas Dominguez who races in the SCORE International race series and will compete in the upcoming 50th Baja 1000 in November. Working with Juan has given us the opportunity to research and test how our exhaust performs in some of the toughest, most brutal conditions: off-road desert racing. Working with Juan has given us the chance to test our exhaust’s quality, durability, and performance over tremendous distances and under extreme changes in both temperature and terrain.
Recently, we’ve had the chance to add a few more sponsored riders to our team. These partnerships will provides us with an even greater opportunity to not only test our systems but to support the sport we love and the riders who make it possible. We thought we’d introduce them to you as we’ll be keeping up with them on social media and our website as time goes on.
