Jim Walker and Co are going to be bringing Sunn bikes into the UK, starting with the new range for 2010, which will be available through certain Jim Walker dealers from around October this year.
Sunn have been away from the UK for a pretty long while, then a couple of years ago were brought in for a short amount of time by Ride Central. Apparently both Sunn and Jim Walker seem pretty stoked pumped and amped that the brand will be back in the UK later this year, and with a distributor as strong as JW, it can only be a good thing.
Sunn’s Marketing manager Clement Bonneau says:
“As part of our International development, the UK market was key in terms of brand image and quality consumers. We have been working hard these last 3 years to bring SUNN back to the forefront of the bike industry by designing performance bikes and by supporting actively the racing scene. The opportunity to work with Jim Walker & Co turned up at a perfect time. They have established themselves as one of the leading and most professional distributors in the UK. We believe we share the same values for quality, performance and service. Most importantly the Jim Walker & Co staff is passionate about mountain bikes and ride. Needless to say, we cannot wait to be back in the UK market with the up and coming 2010 collection!”
