Seattle, WA – November 19, 2007 - The team behind Corsair Bikes, the new bicycle brand from Seattle, WA has come up for air after a busy autumn tradeshow season, where they met with both dealers and potential international distributors. These months of hard work look to have paid off in the form of great partnerships with several leading distribution companies in important markets.
In Germany, Austria and the Benelux countries, Cosmic Sports (located in both Furth Germany and Zandvoort Holland) will add Corsair to their prestigious brand list, which currently includes Marzocchi, 661, Chris King, Pedros, Ritchey and Salsa.
In Vittoria, Spain, BH Bikes/Tribal will distribute Corsair in Spain, Portugal, and France. Known for their success in the racing-bike market, BH also has a large number of employees who are both active and passionate about DH, freeride and other forms of gravity riding. In addition to Corsair, BH Bikes/Tribal also distributes Continental, Diadora, San Marco, DK Bikes, Lazer as well as Titus.
In Genova, Italy, bike-park specialists 4Guimp will assure the Alps and Dolomites are full of Corsair Bikes. Having already built a strong reputation for itself as the Ibis distributor in Italy, the addition of Corsair Bikes will give the company a more complete and targeted offering for its burgeoning wealth of mountain-bike-park customers.
On the opposite end of the earth, former pro circuit mechanic Matt Whitaker will distribute Corsair Bikes through his Wide Open Distribution company based in Rotorua, NZ. Corsair joins a strong list of brands at Wide Open including Marzocchi, Tioga, Atomlab and FSA.
“Its hard for me to express how pleased I am with this initial group of distributors. It’s a varied group that includes both young, new guys and big, established companies. I really love the mix and I am sure these guys will be successful with Corsair in their countries, said Doug Stuart, Corsair’s guy in charge. “As soon as we get the UK, Japan and Australia settled, we will have all of our targeted markets covered.”
