    Ergon Components, the global leader in ergonomic performance products, has opened a California-based office to serve the American markets. Industry veteran Jeffrey Neal has been named as Vice President of Ergon USA, heading up existing sales, marketing and racing efforts.

    “Our US Sales doubled in 2006, the racing segment is really embracing our products, and we are poised for serious growth in this market,” states Franc Arnold, President of Ergon Components, from his headquarters in Urmitz, Germany. “Jeffrey Neal has unrivaled experience working with high-quality product, the best retailers, reps and distributors, and knows what it will take to maximize this growth.”

    Additional staff of Ergon USA includes Graphic Designer Peter Swap, Racing Specialist Jeff Kerkove, and the PR and Marketing resources of Steve Boehmke. Distribution for Ergon is currently being handled through Quality Bike Products, Todson and BTI.

    Streamlining Supply and Demand
    “I’ve been so impressed with Ergon Components since I met Franc at the Sea Otter three years ago,” says Neal. “The shops that have been carrying our ergonomic lock-on grips can’t keep them in stock. I’m working with our distributors and reps to ensure that the top dealers and ultimately the best consumers are riding with the best ergonomic touch-point cycling products available.”

    New Revolutionary Products
    In addition to a full line of hand grips, Ergon is introducing a revolutionary ball-joint mounted backpack, a new concept in saddle design, a carbon–fiber suspension seatpost and gloves that compliment the existing grip line.
