South Coast haven for Suomy and Scorpion helmets

Hampshire-based distributor TranAm has taken on the UK distribution of Italian helmet brand Suomy to head-up its premium racing helmet range. Scorpion helmets, formerly marketed by Thunderchild, join the act to plug the gap recently left by Nolan.

A trade-only distributor since 1976, TranAm has largely focussed its business around quality brands such as Rukka clothing, Daytona boots and Uvex helmets. According to sales director Mark Sawyer, the two new helmet lines will sit perfectly and conflict-free within that profile. "TranAm now offers a helmet to suit virtually every riding discipline, with a pricing structure designed to protect the dealer's profitability," added Sawyer.

The new distribution channel officially gets under way from Monday 1st November 2010 and the TranAm team is predicting an exciting year ahead.

There have been quite a few changes and transfers in the market over the past few weeks, with several brands switching to new distributors. Look out for the November issue of Motorcycle Trader to find out who's distributing what for the coming season.
