Acerbis Clothing is made by racers for racers. The best ideas are enhanced and updated as a result of the experience gathered and gained through the various professional and amateur racers. The various competitions become the best opportunities to test the safety of the products and this is possible through the feedback obtained from the athletes who are sponsored by the Italian parent company. This eventually facilitates the diligent task of the Research and Development Department whose efforts are focused in finding lasting solutions for our customers. New products and the updated versions of existing products are all tested and tried on the motorbikes as well as on the bodies of Acerbis-sponsored riders under extreme conditions where the products are subject to the toughest conditions to prove their resistance against all forms of hazards and their effeciency against all types of perils.
The first step of the development process starts from the rider. Acerbis was born out of its zeal for competition and it is logical that it shapes its product development process according to this pattern whereby engineers implement the ideas obtained from the feedback with the various athletes.

In 1905 Captain Peabody Fawcett R.N Ret’d, the intrepid and eminent Edwardian explorer, disappeared whilst attempting to navigate to the source of the Ubangi, a major tributary to the Congo River. No trace was ever found of his seemingly doomed expedition… until that is, in 1997, an old battered trunk purchased at a house clearance sale, was taken home and its locks forced. Incredibly, amongst its decaying and mildewed contents was found an exquisite dressing case containing salves, unguents, ointments and the missing adventurers long lost journals. Scattered amongst the many tales of hardship, derring do and wonders seen, where one was expected to “keep a stiff upper lip, regardless”, were found meticulously detailed lists of exotic ingredients for use in the Captain’s very own grooming requisites. These precise formulae have been faithfully followed and Fawcett’s original potions, along with his world renowned Moustache Wax are now available to the discerning gentleman for the first time in over a century. Captain Fawcett’s Grooming products keep all the members of Team SP FiFTY One looking sharp and fresh under the toughest of conditions.
