RK and EXCEL are sister companies sharing common values with the Six Days, but also a long and rich history. The activity started in 1932 in Takasago City, Japan. In 1953, Takasako Chain Co. Ltd started producing chains for motorcycles. In 1956, EXCEL ceased to produce rims for bicycles, focusing solely on products for motorcycles, and was certified “JIS indicating factory”, the highest quality label for the Japanese industry.

Since their creation, RK and EXCEL never stopped developing new processes to propose more and more performing products, complying with the highest standards.

The high-demanding level of performance and reliability of the 6 Days race seduces RK and EXCEL as it is the perfect off-Road playing field to highlight the premium quality standards of their chain kits, rims and wheelsets.

Mr Lee Eh Hern, RK EXCEL CEO commented : “We are very proud about this new partnership with the FIM International Six Days of Enduro. We would like to take this opportunity to prove the performance and quality of our products, also taking every chance possible to refine our product from rider feedbacks. Being the best is a commitment!”

Mr Tony Skillington, FIM CEO expressed his satisfaction and added: “The FIM is both proud and delighted to welcome such a well known and World renowned company as RK and EXCEL to what is the oldest competition in the FIM calendar. The company and the ISDE are both rich in motorcycle history and share the same ethos.”

“The ISDE will provide the perfect platform for RK and EXCEL to further test and develop their products and to use the information gained for future development. This is great news for all enduro riders who will benefit from having these brands present in what remains one of the most demanding off-road competitions.”

The RK Chain SIX DAYS 520 EXW – XW RING is the best performing chain for such a demanding race. To inform riders, especially Enduro riders, RK has created a specific package including the SIX DAYS branding.

The EXCEL SIX DAYS Portugal rims combine performance and a really smart design, highlighting the whole bike with a “6 DAYS Portugal 2019” laser mark on the wheel itself.

RK and EXCEL support all the amateur riders of the Event by granting them access to special prices (from -30% discount) and to the RK racing service in the paddock, where they can receive useful technical advice on getting the best reliability and performance of their RK chains.

Moreover, the RK EXCEL Challenge provides extra discount and the possibility to win prestigious prizes for complete teams of 3 riders who use both RK chain and EXCEL rims.
