A range of high-quality United States cycling products are available for the South African market following a contract with Controltech Bikes negotiated by Positive Sports Solutions.
The latest deal sees the SA company consolidate its aim to bring quality brands at affordable prices to the country.
It follows on the heels of a number of contracts Positive Sports Solutions has concluded with overseas companies to import equipment such as HEAD bicycles, Westfalia bike racks and Gipiemme wheels.
The new deal is tipped to strengthen the impact Positive Sports Solutions has on the local cycling market.
“The company is expanding and this fits in very well with the other high-end products it already has,” added the spokesman.
Controltech possesses a wide range of products that cater for a variety of cyclists, including mountain biking and road racing.
“The products are applicable to entry-level users as well as mid- to high-level users,” said the spokesman.
One of Controltech’s strategies is not to restrict itself to one material, even within a single component.
Each part of every piece is carefully specified for its particular properties – the strength of steel, the low density of aluminium, the exotic hardness of titanium, or just about any aspect of the many different types of carbon its experts work with.
With a wide range of cycling components available, Positive Sports Solutions is confident it can satisfy the needs of local customers.
“The more popular products will be kept in stock,” said the spokesman.
“They will be available to all reputable bike fitment centres and at our showroom in Centurion.”
