In the spirit of the recent Oscar Awards ceremony this past weekend, we'd like to hop off our bikes for a minute, unfurl our speech notes tucked away in our jerseys, and recognize the people who have helped us achieve our recent and continued success.
An Incredible Season
First, without rival, the past six months have been our most successful season since we first introduced Power Cordz in 2005. The roll-out of Power Cordz Prime (our lightweight complete cable and housing package) certainly contributed to the growing exposure and reputation of Power Cordz. What once began as the vision "to provide the best cables for the best riders" has now exploded into multiple products and a brand recognized as a worldwide leader in innovation within the cycling industry.
We could not have done this alone. Thanks to the strong relationships we've developed with our riders and the feedback we've received from you - our riding community - we've continuously improved and enhanced our products to perform when you need control the most.
Our New Reach, Your New Distributors
To design and develop the best products on the market is one thing, but to bring our products to the best cyclists in the world is another. We'd like to recognize our growing list of international distributors that make the purchase of Power Cordz at local and online retail locations not only possible, but easy for riders across the planet. Without your help and support, Power Cordz would not have developed into what it is today.
On that note, we'd like to officially recognize our three newest international distributors.
With their help, you'll soon find Power Cordz on cycles from Guangzhou to São Paulo to Oslo.
We'd also like to extend our continued gratitude to all of our distributors and retail providers. Without your support, riders across the globe would never feel the difference in control that Power Cordz provide.
Thank You (Yes, You)
Finally, we want to thank you. Yes, you. As you read this you are learning more about the industry that affects the sport you love. We recognize that you take time out of your day to read about changes and trends in the industry and we respect you for using your knowledge to advance the sport.
Cycling is more than a hobby, more than a sport - it's a lifestyle. Chances are if you are reading this, you already believe this and are part of a community that believes this.
We are proud to be a part of this community.
You've made an impact every time you reached out to us. We take every comment made on our Facebook page or various online forums in which we participate into consideration. In fact, the feedback you've given us has directly influenced everything from our new Grommet Clasps to the color options available in our housing and cordz. We're always looking for ways to improve our design or offer better customer service, so let us know if you ever have any ideas.
You can help us change the industry for the better. In many ways, you already have.
