Seattle Bike Supply adds Power Cordz to wholesale distribution
Seattle Bike Supply (SBS) picks up Power Cordz for their bicycle wholesale catalog. Io DuPont, maker of Power Cordz, believes SBS and new UCI rules will help the lightweight cables grow in cyclo-cross.
Kurt Hall, engineer for Redline Bicycles, home of top performance bicycles in cyclo-cross and 29’r mountain bikes said of the new offering, “Power Cordz™ deliver the smoothest shifting I’ve ever felt; they provide a true, light touch to integrated road levers.”
“SBS offers great brands and service to their customers,” says Tony DuPont, the lead engineer behind Power Cordz™ and founder of Io DuPont. “They also have a ton of credibility in cyclo-cross and, with the new UCI rules allowing mechanical disc brakes in cyclo-cross races, we couldn’t ask for a better partner than SBS as we grow in that direction.”
According to DuPont, the non-corrosive synthetic fibers of Power Cordz™ offer superior modulation and performance to mechanical disc brake systems. They also shed mud, water, and debris more efficiently while being more than 75% lighter than their steel counterparts.
Power Cordz™ are now available at Seattle Bike Supply with or without housing for both brake and derailleur systems and in Classic Black or True White. Check for compatibility information at www.PowerCordz.com/
