Wide Open locks in ENVE Composites distribution

Posted by Caleb Smith on Thursday November 24 2011


Utah based Enve Composites are delighted to announce a formal distribution partnership with Rotorua based Wide Open Distributors in New Zealand. Adding to an already impressive line-up of bicycles parts and accessories, Enve wheels and components are a perfect complement to Wide Open’s focus on high quality essentials for the discerning New Zealand consumer.

Enve’s Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, Beverly Lucas said “I’m very excited to welcome Wide Open Distributors to the ENVE family as our exclusive New Zealand distributor.  Matt and his team have a phenomenal reputation in their domestic IBD market and obviously the fact that we share a preexisting synergy with technically superior brands like Chris King is a huge plus for both of us. This couldn’t be a better fit, and I’m looking forward to growing our partnership.”

Matt Whitaker, Wide Open Distributors owner agreed. “The Enve brand sits very well alongside our other leading brands. Enve’s products are becoming more and more renowned and respected across the road, mountain and now the triathlon and TT market so it’s exciting times. We will be offering in-house wheel building as well building strong relationships with other key custom wheel builders in the New Zealand market.”

Enve products will be available via Wide Open’s network of dealers in mid December.

        They are enough (more than enough)… You are right, i just loved they way Jono casually dropped that someone might spend $3600 on a wheelset for their loved one for Christmas… maybe he was dropping a hint for his girlfriend…
