Both brands 'complement Lyon's existing cycle portfolio', says Lyon

Cumbria based Lyon Equipment has announced an exclusive UK and ROI distribution deal with Salsa Cycles and Teravail Tyres.

The agreement follows investments from Lyon into its cycle division and comes after a visit to QBP, the parent company of Salsa and Teravail.

Jonathan Capper, managing director at Lyon, said: “Our vision at Lyon is to provide equipment and expertise to allow people to venture further.

“As a result our cycle division has carved out its place in the market as a one-stop shop for adventure cycling.

“Salsa is well known for its adventure orientated portfolio of bikes and P&A.

“With the growth in gravel, bikepacking and self-supported endurance events they have led the way for many years in the adventure cycling scene through constant innovation.

“Teravail is a relatively new, forward thinking tyre brand from the US with products that are developed with a specific terrain or event in mind.

“Their range covers a broad spectrum from gravel to trail and with some exciting developments in the pipeline will soon be a tyre brand that is on a lot of people’s radar.

“Both brands complement our existing cycle portfolio of Ortlieb waterproof luggage, Bombtrack Bicycles, Tubus expedition grade racks, Julbo eyewear and Hydrapak hydration systems, as well as our extensive outdoor portfolio.”

Alex Zidarevich, international business development manager at QBP, added: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Lyon Equipment in the UK.

“It was clear from our first meeting that throughout their business they have a genuine passion for enabling adventures.

“From a commercial point of view, both QBP and Lyon are clearly aligned with regards to corporate social responsibility and business ethos.”

Lyon will be makings its debut at COREbike later this month.
