(Lake Forest, CA March 4, 2011) Don't forget to set your clocks forward as we "spring ahead" for Daylight Savings Time on March 13th. Of course the crew at Scorpion is way ahead of the game, already releasing the Spring 2011 catalog and a host of new ExoWear apparel! In order to give their network of independent sales reps a heads up before the annual trade shows, the wraps came off the new gear a couple weeks before Indy during Scorpion and Leatt's joint National Sales Meeting, but we were sworn to secrecy before the Dealer Expo.
Leatt's GM Phil Davy and Scorpion Sports National Sales Manager Jon Eide co-hosted the joint National Sales Meeting for 50 of the nation's top independent sales reps back in January. "The information presented here was on a need to know basis, and we couldn't wait for the trade shows to clue our reps in on what is coming," explains Eide. Coinciding with the sales meeting was the launch of Scorpion's Spring 2011 catalog, headed up by the "Superior Species" EXO-500 helmets and trick new togs like the Kingdom jacket for the ladies the Torque jacket for men.
"We just couldn't wait for the Dealer Expo to show off the new helmets and riding gear featured in the Spring 2011 catalog," claims Eide. "Instead, we teamed up with Leatt to really do something special for the ISRs (Independent Sales Reps) who have been calling on dealers across the country with samples of the 2011 ExoWear and copies of the catalog for a full four weeks prior to the dealer show."
The two-day session kicked off with Eide treating the reps to a shot of 5-Hour Energy and then turning the always fiery Phil Davy loose to address the amped-up ISRs. Scorpion President Rick Miller also used the sales meeting to dispel some of the rumors he had been hearing. "There is absolutely no truth to the allegation that Scorpion Sports Inc. has been sold! In fact we just renewed the lease on our Lake Forest facility for another two years... on top of expanding the new Warranty Center in another building," said Miller. "The new products are in the warehouse and the new catalogs are out now… Scorpion Sports is here to stay!"
The good news is that you don't need to be an ISR, industry insider or even attend the Dealer Expo to get a look at the latest ExoWear and helmets from Scorpion.
