RICHMOND, Calif. - SpeedMob Inc. has purchased the operating assets and majority of inventory of Geared Up Powersports, which did business as LeoVince USA, SpeedMob owner Tim Calhoun announced. But it is no longer affiliated with LeoVince.

“The contracts have been finalized and I am excited about this new venture and the possibilities it presents for us. We plan to offer new brands as well as continued service on a more focused offering of brands currently distributed by Geared Up Powersports. It allows us to create a name that coincides with our passion for speed sports,” Calhoun said.
 
SpeedMob began doing business on May 19. Current dealers will be able to continue purchasing products from Airoh Helmets, TechSpec, BMC and other brands now carried by SpeedMob with uninterrupted service, Calhoun said.
 
“This change represents our desire to get back to the root of what brought my team and me into powersports," Calhoun added. "We want to reintegrate ourselves into the most passionate side of our business, not only as sponsors and vendors, but also as competitors, builders and riders on a human-to-human basis.

"SpeedMob allows us to create a brand that we live and to offer products that we really believe in," Calhoun said. "We hope that these brands will put smiles on riders’ faces and that dealers will choose SpeedMob to continue servicing their needs both on the fine brands brought over in the purchase as well as the new brands soon to join the SpeedMob family.”
