October 3, 2007 - SparX Helmets has signed with distribution giant, Tucker Rocky, for exclusive distribution of their new line of helmets. Pat Lio, Vice President announced, "We are extremely pleased to partner with Tucker Rocky. There is not another distributor in this industry that we would rather partner with to move forward with the nationwide launch of our brand and helmet line". SparX Helmets was developed to raise current standards for functionality and design in the entry-level marketplace by offering consumers a quality helmet with high end features at a low price point. Tucker Rocky will be the exclusive distributor of SparX Helmets in the U.S.
"We are very excited to add SparX Helmets to our product portfolio," commented Ronnie Haun, TR's Senior Product Line Manager for the helmet division. "The attention to detail on the finish and trim on the SparX Helmets is equal in quality to a higher price point helmet. Although SparX is a newcomer to the industry, the development team behind the brand are seasoned veterans to the motorcycle industry and I believe this bodes well for the long-term success of the brand" added Haun.
SparX Helmets will be in stores by November 2007.
