As of 1st October Zyro take over the distribution for Abus locks. Madison, the previous distributor, recently became agents for Kryponite, replacing Caratti, and it was clear the company had too many conflicting lock brands.
Zyro will be distributing a greater range of Abus product than Madison, including adult and childrens helmets. Zyro is running down its stocks of Cat-eye locks and will cease their distribution in January. However, Abus wont be Zyros only lock-brand, the York-based company will also now distribute Buffo and Citadel locks.
Zyros capturing of the Camelbak agency has been an instant success, says marketing bod Bonnie Johnson: Sales of Camelbaks have exceeded the expectations of both ourselves and Camelbak and well need more before the introduction of year 2000 stock from November.
Zyro will stock the full range of Camelbak accessories and spares.
(Incidentally, has anybody else noticed the stunning coverage Camelbak is getting on the main news at the moment? Many of the Australian peace-keeping troops drafted in to East Timor are keeping hydrated with Camelbaks. Logos have been visible and there are plenty of tell-tale tubes and bite-valves to be seen. Is this official Oz kit for the Tropics we wonder?)
Zyros new catalogue is currently being sent out with retail orders and will also be included as an insertion in forthcoming issues of MBR and Cycling Weekly.
