To continue his way of success and speed, Jérôme signed with the bavarian label Bliss Protection for the upcoming season.

With his victory at the at the EWS stop at Val d‘Isere, your current Enduro World Series champion could be announced without rolling out of the start gate at the last Enduro World Series at Finale Ligure. This fact proofs one more time Jérôme´s outstanding dominance in the current Enduro racing sport. No one else is as fast as the young Frenchmen from a little village called Buhl. Enduro racing is a fast growing sport with a huge progression. As a result of this, the current Enduro race tracks become more like a downhill track we used to. So it is no mystery that the athletes who compete at this action packed races, get from time to time over their handlebars. So, Jérôme is in need of body-armor, which gives him as much protection as possible without limiting his freedom of movement and allows him sending it full throttle. That´s the reason why Jérôme Clementz signed with Bliss Protection, which are known for their super thin, flexible, breathable and high functional body-armor.

Together with his countryman Nico Lau, Jérôme is the leader of the Bliss Protection Enduro RaceTeam. So stay tuned for the upcoming race season. There might be some very exciting in-house battles between those very fast Bliss team riders at 2014´s Enduro World Series.

Bliss Protection has been founded 2006 by Matthias Ascherl and his crew. The guys at Bliss – all of them are enthusiastic mountain bikers, skiers and snowboarders – were not satisfied with the current body armor at the market. Every product was – or even still is – too bulky and let you look like a „Robo-Cop“. It was time to do something new, something different, something better! Bliss Protection is known as a riders brand and the mentality that comes along within. Consequently thinking outside the box is the daily grid at Bliss. They want thinner, more flexible, lighter and even more breathable protection, so they can ride longer and have more fun and comfort. There was nothing in the shops you can buy so far, so Ascherl and his crew started their own protection company. That was the day when Bliss was born like a phoenix from the ashes.
