KEP ITALIA SAFETY PARTNER FOR FISE
KEP Italia is a partner for the safety of the Federazione Italiana Sport Equestri (Italian Federation of Equestrian Sports; FISE): thanks to an agreement signed in 2014, KEP Italia protects all the riders in all disciplines who represent Italy in all national and international competitions, both individually and in teams.
The partnership is based on the belief, by both KEP Italia and FISE, that promoting (especially among younger riders) a culture of riding safety is fundamental to safeguarding both the enjoyment that must always be the basis of every sports activity and the focus on optimum professional performance. The objective of KEP Italia, together with FISE, is to launch an educational campaign on the importance of safe horse riding, protected by an approved helmet that meets the most advanced international safety standards and that is worn in the correct manner.
The new helmets produced by KEP Italia for FISE:
These helmets pass all the tests necessary to obtain five different international safety certifications: CE VG1 01 040 2014-12, SEI/ASTM:F1163, BS EN 1384:2012 KITEMARK, IC Mark EN1384:2012, PAS015:2011 KITE MARK.
