Six location roadshow taking place throughout January

Claud Butler reveals 2013 dealer launch dates

Claud Butler has announced a six venue tour for its 2013 range launch, running from Somerset to Falkirk, Bradford, Coventry, Heathrow and North Linconshire.

IBDs will be able to see for the first time the new 2013 Claud Butler MTB, hybrid, road and commuter ranges, with several new additions to the Claud Butler stable.

Urban Mover’s 36v Elite e-bikes are now exclusively distributed by Claud Butler and will be available to demo on the dealer days, featuring Panasonic Li-ion batteries with Smart Chip inside technology. The system allows battery data checking via a USB connected computer interface for detailed analysis.

And as well as an expanded Claud Butler in-house range of accessories, dealers will also have exclusive access to new lines from RST Suspension Technology, KED Helmets and OGNS luggage.

There’s an added draw for dealers too. Fitting in with Claud Butler’s Urban and Explorer commuter and leisure ranges, Cyclescheme will be in attendance at four of the five regional venues to help explain the merits of its scheme.

Cycleschemer’s Laurence Boon, relationship manager for suppliers and partner stores, said: "Cyclescheme is really pleased to be joining Claud Butler at the dealer events. We will be on hand to discuss the growing Cyclescheme sales and the assistance we can lend our Partner Stores as they vie for more cycle to work business."

For further information on the shows dealers should contact their area manager or ring the head office on 01652 656000.
