Mika Kallio, 20 years experienced rider in motorcycle races and current Official Test Rider for Team Red Bull KTM MotoGP, chose SAKARTDESIGN to design and create the graphics of his helmet.

We conceived and realized a design based on the Red Bull MotoGP colours, designing a strong visual impact highlighting the shapes of HJC RPHA11 model with red fluo graphics.

From the upper big red fluo logo “-36°” begins an elegant modular texture ending up to the backside of the helmet.

The final result, in an aggressive matt finish, reflect the nature and determination of a great experienced rider as Mika is.

Mika used his new helmet for the first time during the pre-season MotoGP test in Qatar. Then in the first wild card in the Spanish GP at Jerez, Mika wore the new 2018 HJC model helmet with his brand new design and conquered a great 10th place.

We are really satisfied and ready for the 2018 season, thanking Red Bull, Mika Kallio and the helmet supplier HJC Helmets for the confidence in our Racing Rider Design Service.




Kallio has been Test Rider for the new Red Bull KTM Factory Racing effort. Kallio will first ride as a wild card in the 2016 season finale in Valencia – the first race experience for the all-new Rc16.

In 2017 he competed in 4 Grand Prix, Germany, Austria, Aragon and Valencia. In the 2018 season Mika will continue the development of the KTM bike and will compete in five GPs.
