Schuberth North America announced on April 15 its partnership with German motorcycle apparel and equipment manufacturer Held. Schuberth NA will serve as the sole distributor of Held products in the U.S., with a selection of products to become available in June. The selection will include Held’s GORE-TEX, leather and textile riding gloves, GORE-TEX textile adventure riding suits for both men and women, and waterproof bag systems.
“We are very excited to welcome Held Rider Equipment to the Schuberth North America family,” said Randy Northrup, vice president of Schuberth North America. “Held uses the highest quality materials and draws on decades of engineering innovation to produce some of the best motorcycle gear available, which we believe will perfectly complement our offering of Schuberth helmets.”
Best known worldwide for its glove lines, Held also designs and manufactures premium motorcycle safety gear, utilizing the highest quality materials and armor. Held’s innovations include being the first equipment manufacturer to implement naturally abrasion-resistant kangaroo and stingray leathers in its products, the first to use a special inside stepped seam to eliminate seam discomfort and the first manufacturer to use a titanium knuckle cover on their gloves.
