East Lansing, Michigan (October 19, 2021) — With record numbers of people across the globe, KOM Cycling has been working to expand their distributor network, and they’ve found their ideal partners in Bob Elliot & CO Ltd, which boasts decades of relevant experience and the requisite network to maximize KOM’s expansion across the pond.
For the throngs of cycling-crazy Britons, this partnership, and the ongoing expansion of the KOM product line, means this multitude of enthusiasts can now get all the experience-improving cycling products they need for indoor and outdoor training.
The new partnership and full range of products will be available across the UK starting in October, and the KOM team is confident that Elliot’s group will make this venture highly successful.
“We are always looking to grow the KOM Cycling family, and we see the UK as a hotbed of opportunity; we feel Bob Elliot & CO Ltd will be a long-term member of that family and will prove fruitful for all of us,” says KOM Founder Austin Loper.
“We know Bob and the Elliot team offer amazing service to their 1000+ dealer network,” adds Loper, “which is why they’ve been in business since 1985. Their dealers know they carry the best products for cyclists, and our products fit every kind of rider, from the enthusiast to the professional, whether they ride outdoors or train indoors or a bit of both.”
The Elliot team is equally enthusiastic about working with KOM and sees this as a win-win situation. “At Bob Elliot & CO. Ltd. we have been looking for an opportunity to further develop our portfolio with a range of comprehensive but easy-to-sell training and tech-focused products,” says a company spokesperson. “And our exclusive partnership with KOM Cycling is a perfect fit for that role. They’re a well-established brand in the US and a number of other territories, offering world-class quality, up-to-date mounting hardware and adaptors, indoor training accessories and tubeless solutions. Their focus on continual product development, market-leading packaging and excellent margins all provide a great opportunity to maximize growth in these rapidly expanding and developing areas.”
