The Tucano Urbano brand has been chosen by the Monster Energy Honda Team – the Honda rally factory team – to supply the outfits for the team for the forthcoming 2018 and 2019 seasons.

For both the 2018 and 2019 rally campaigns, Tucano Urbano will be the official supplier of clothing for the Monster Energy Honda Team, the official team of Honda-HRC in the offroad discipline, for the various races of the FIM Cross-Country Rallies calendar as well as the 2018 and 2019 editions of the Dakar Rally.

The team will use Tucano Urbano apparel, made from high-quality materials with special technical characteristics, such as the Dry-Touch® system, which allows rapid drying and adjusts to changes in body temperature and regulates moisture levels, which often lead to skin problems and irritation.

Taking advantage of the agreement with the team that will take effect in January 2018, Tucano Urbano will launch a special line of officially authorized Honda products including T-shirt, polo, shirt and cap. In addition to Dry-Touch®, the latest Tucano Urbano garments are smooth, flexible, retain their original colours while not creasing easily and are simple to iron.
