USWE Makes A Hydration Backpack To Honor Kurt Caselli


In 2019 we together with The Kurt Caselli Foundation decided to make a special KC66 Edition hydration backpack to honor our dear friend & athlete, Kurt Caselli. This pack became a huge success among the off-road community. Every pack was sold out! This awesome campaign made it possible for us at USWE to donate $18,684 dollars to The Kurt Caselli Foundation. Thank you all amazing people who supported us!

 

Now in 2020, it’s an extreme tough challenge because of the Coronavirus situation. But we strongly believe in supporting The Kurt Caselli Foundation and their work for safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry. So, that’s why we’ll again run the KC66 Edition hydration backpack campaign. We aim to double our sales in numbers of this pack, to be able to donate all together $40.000 dollars to the foundation. Hope that you’ll support it!

Kurt Caselli was one of the most gifted talents in off-road motorcycle racing. He sadly passed away in a motorcycle accident at the Baja race in Mexico in 2013. Kurt's family and his main sponsors started a foundation to support the safety of riders and racers.

Kurt Caselli loved riding with USWE´s hydration packs. He was the first US rider to join the USWE family, back in 2008. With KC’s strong passion for the sport and his amazing ambassadorship, he introduced us to the American off-road motorcycle industry. We believe the KC66 Edition hydration backpack is without doubt the most important backpack that we at USWE have ever made.

 

In January 2019 we brought the prototype, together with some pro-riders and the industry media to Kurt Casellis backyard. The location was in the high deserts in California, USA. Here we had a chat with Nancy Caselli, Kurt's mother. We made the mutual decision to produce the branded KC66/USWE pack.

 

With this pack we honor the off-road legend and our dear friend.

“KC” – you’ll forever be loved and missed

 

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the KC66 Packs goes directly to The Kurt Caselli Foundation. Hereby we want to help fund the foundations continued mission of protecting and supporting the lives of off-road riders.

 

The Kurt Caselli Foundation was established in 2013 in memory of Kurt Caselli. The focus of the foundation is the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry. While we understand the inherent elements of danger in this industry, The Kurt Caselli Foundation aims to help minimize this danger to the best of their ability.
