Tucker Rocky Distributing is adding the Scorpion helmet brand to its line of distributed products.
Scorpion Sports, Inc. (SSI) has spent the past five years supplying Scorpion brand products dealer-direct, and the company plans to continue marketing and selling Scorpion helmets and apparel in that same fashion.
"We are looking for increased market penetration and ease of ordering from the dealer network," says Jang Park, chairman of Kido Corp. — parent company of SSI. "Adding Tucker Rocky as a distributor will help to achieve this goal."
"Scorpion provides us with a competitive mid-price point helmet line that can compete effectively in this growing U.S. market segment," says Steve Johnson, president of Tucker Rocky. The addition of Scorpion comes less than a week after helmet brand KBC and Tucker Rocky ended their relationship.
Park says Kido will be attending the Tucker Rocky sales meeting in July to show both TR reps and dealers the latest in Scorpion helmets. Slated for introduction is the new EXO 900 TransformerHelmet, a totally modular, multipurpose lid.
Tucker Rocky plans to have Scorpion helmet inventory available by September.
