Brendan Fairclough uses TLD Knee Brace to keep his season intact

Troy Lee brings new trail clothing ranges to the trade for 2012

The Troy Lee range has been expanded for 2012, including a wider trail clothing line-up and the ShockDoctor protection range.

The additional trail focused clothing and accessories products promise to bring bold colours and TLD designs to UK trails, while the ShockDoctor range includes chest protectors, shorts and pads aimed at offering safety alongside freedom of movement, as well as integration with leading neck braces. Fisher will be broadening the range of lightweight vests it stocks over the coming months, BikeBiz is told.

Troy Lee is exhibiting at Eurobike in Hall A7 – Stand 106.

Fisher is offering stockist deals to tailor to suit all sizes of account, from specific offers for those just interested in gloves, protection and trail, up to full ‘Speed Shop’ dealers.

TLD’s protection range was recently tested on the trail by Brendan Fairclough. After suffering a serious knee injury in round one of the UCI World Cup, Fairclough was advised he’d need surgery to repair the injury. Instead the rider used TLD Knee Braces to keep his knee intact and finish the season. He has since been named on the British DH team.
