Josh Herrin KYT helmet Daytona-200


KYT Americas sponsored rider, Josh Herrin, pulls off his third incredible Daytona 200 win in style.

KYT Americas is proud to congratulate Daytona 200 winner, Josh Herrin, on a near perfectly executed win! Herrin now becomes one of only six riders to win the prestigious race three times.

Newly sponsored, and in his first official race wearing the new KYT KX-1 Race, Josh Herrin put on a masterful performance, winning his third Daytona 200 on his Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati. His experience and poise were on display as he steadily ticked off blistering lap after lap. Slowly, but steadily, he broke away from his closest competitors, working his way through lap traffic and managing fuel and tires. All the way up to the final lap of fifty-seven, Herrin was well below the one-minute fifty-second pace.

Thanks to the well executed pit stops by his Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati team, Herrin was able to focus on his job knowing there was no lost time.

KYT Americas is proud to have Josh Herrin as a sponsored rider for the 2024 MotoAmerica Superbike series. The KYT team looks forward to supporting Herrin as he fights for the championship.

The KX-1’s low drag coefficient and lightweight make it a perfect helmet for long-distance races. During the post-race interview, Herrin commented on the difference between last year’s Daytona 200 and this year in regards to neck fatigue. Wearing the KX-1 Race for the first time, Herrin was happy with the improved aerodynamics over his previous helmet, noting that he experienced no neck strain over the 57 laps.

As a sponsored racer for KYT Americas competing in the premier national series, Herrin will be equipped with the cutting-edge KX-1 Race helmet for the 2024 MotoAmerica season. The FIM homologated KX-1 Race, designed and developed in Italy and tested by Ducati Corse Factory riders, is the latest KYT helmet infused with world-class safety and aerodynamic technology. Boasting enhanced vertical and peripheral field of vision (92 deg and 210 deg) and weighing approximately 1400 grams, the KX-1 Race is a game changer.
