Specialist importers and distributors of international sports-related goods Positive Sports Solutions and TOKEN Cycling SA have announced a merger of operations, a move set to benefit cyclists and retailers across the Southern African Development Community.

The Johannesburg-based companies will join forces from November 1, which means they can offer an expanded range of premium brands at even more competitive rates.

Both businesses have been supplying high-quality products – backed by international counterpart brand warranties with local back-up – to the SADC market over the past five years. They cater for entry, mid and high-end markets.

The company, which will operate as Positive Sports Solutions (PSS), will move into a new office and showroom featuring all its brands, onsite mechanics as well as a state-of-the art bike fitment centre. This will be open to the public at the Move Motion Centre at 1 Kikuyu Road in Sunninghill.

Through its BioRacer Aero setup software, the fitment centre can analyse the movement, symmetry and stability of riders, enabling them to choose the equipment that is best suited to their characteristics.

All PSS’s products can be purchased from any of its retailers or, according to general manager Warren Foyn, on www.positivesportssolutions.co.za at the recommended retail prices.

Online purchases can be checked out with a courier delivery to the supplied address or the option of collecting from the company’s Sunninghill showroom.

Foyn added that PSS would also engage in regular brand activations at major cycling events, with the first scheduled alongside the Nissan Trailseeker MTB Series event at Cullinan on November 9.

“Consumers will be able to see what we have to offer and the value we can provide over a wide range of products.”

The combined range of brands will now consist of HEAD (bicycles), Controltech (bike components), Westfalia (bike racks), Gipiemme (wheels), Luck (shoes), Uvex (helmets), Ryders (eyewear), TOKEN (wheels), Supacaz (accessories), SRT (bike components), Tufo (tyres), and TreeFrog (vacuum bike racks).
