Be One now available in Canada; UK distribution deal signed soon

Be One was going to be one of the bike brands offered via ‘Profile the Bike Specialist’ but when Euretco pulled its UK launch to concentrate on growing its business in Germany, Be One’s route to UK IBDs was no longer available.

In Canada, Be One will be distributed by the Vancouver based Orange Sport Supply Inc., a distributor of Thomson, FSA, Chris King, eNVy, Arrow tires, SDG Saddles, Beast Gear armour, and Grimeca.

"Be One bikes are a natural fit for our market," said Greg Inkster, president of Orange Sport Supply.

"Their excellent quality and reputation in Europe provides a strong foundation for us here in Canada."

Dennis Weijers, Be One’s international sales manager, said:

"We visited Orange Sport Supply ruring the Canadian World Cup races and we found the same philosophy, enthusiasm and dedication to mountain biking as we have. After starting a Freeride project together with Warwick Patterson and the Be One Freeride team in Canada there has been huge demand for Be One Bikes. In Orange Sport Supply we have found the

right partner to provide the customer with the best customer care."
