Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
Zamst, a leader in high-performance sports protective equipment, announced today a continuation of its worldwide endorsement deal with professional basketball star Stephen Curry. Widely considered to be one of today’s best young basketball players, Curry has battled persistent ankle injuries over past seasons. Curry wore the Zamst A2-DX ankle brace during the 2012-13 season, and will wear the brace for the upcoming season.
Since his ankle ligament surgery in 2011, Stephen has been wearing the Zamst A2-DX to support his ability to stay on the court. Setting a single season NBA record with 272 three pointers, Stephen clearly separated himself as one of the elite shooters in NBA history. In addition to this achievement, he led the Golden State Warriors to the second round of the NBA playoffs, scoring 44 points in Game 1 against the San Antonio Spurs. In the 2012-13 season Curry averaged 22.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.6 steals, and he shot 45.3% from 3 point range during the regular season.
“Stephen is a amazing young talent who has shown what he can do when healthy, and is coming off an incredible 2012-13 season,” said Bryan Smeltzer, general manager of Zamst US. “Our product line was created to help players like Stephen stabilize their injury and provide them with both the physical and mental confidence to play without limitations. We look forward to continuing our support of Stephen, providing the product’s he needs to perform at an elite level, and watching him develop as one of the NBA’s premier point guards. Our Precision Engineered Support products protect and reinforce the elite athletes of the world, and we are proud to continue our partnership with Stephen.”

With a heritage in the medical field, the company has created its product line through a rigorous development process, which includes in-depth consultation with doctors, trainers and elite athletes to ensure high performance functionality.
The A2-DX ankle brace Stephen is wearing is constructed with unique EXO-Grid rigid guards which restrict both inversion and eversion, while X-straps provide enhanced anterior, lateral and medial stability of the ankle. With a rear entry design, the brace also provides for an individualized fit with an anatomically correct right and left ankle design.
“I’ve used a lot of different braces to help reinforce my right ankle, but since my surgery I have only been wearing the Zamst A2-DX which has provided the support I need to keep me on the court” said Curry. “The Zamst A2-DX is the only product that has given me the full confidence to play without the fear of re-injuring my ankle.”
As part of the partnership deal, Curry will be used internationally for in-store, print and online marketing activities for Zamst.
