Deity Distributed in Canada by Trident Sports
With a likeminded focus on customer service, dealer relationships, and unrivaled product support, the partnership with Trident Sports has been a year in the making. With product ready to fill their shelves and set to ship to hundreds of dealers across Canada, Deity is excited to see the product finally become available and supported properly up North.
“We have been very patient as we passed on a lot of distribution requests while we waited for the right people who embody some of the values that make our brand unlike anything on the market. From communication to customer service to an understanding of the MTB culture, the crew at Trident Sports have the tools to properly represent our brand in one of our favorite places in the world, Canada.” Eric Davies (Deity, Owner)
Located in Vancouver, BC and a company founded on a passion for both water and dirt activities, Trident Sports has selectively built a brand roster that allows them to focus individual attention to each brand, their goals, and the specific needs to help make the product be successful for bike shops. With their goals to carry top quality products, offer great price points, provide the very best in customer service, and remain personally active in the sport cultures they cater to, Deity will be joining their successful brand portfolio that consists of Banshee Bikes, Gamut USA, Alpinestars and more.
“We’re extremely excited to launch our partnership with Deity,” said Dalen Stanley, Bike Division Manager of Trident Sports. “We have seen the evolution and growth of Deity’s product line over the past five years and feel it is just what mountain bikers in Canada are looking for. It is going to be great working with a brand that is as excited about riding bikes as making amazing products and their passion is contagious.”
“There is a huge presence in Canada by a handful of component brands and we are so excited to join them as an option for riders out there. The last time we were distributed in Canada, our components were as simple as they can come and to say that we have evolved from the early years of the company, is an understatement. We started with minimal financial resources and to this day, we do not have any investors, partners, or other outside forces breathing down our necks. Nevertheless, patience and strategic decision making has allowed us to become a company that now channels a quarter million dollars into product development annually. We are a true rider owned, funded, and operated company who has been racking up rave reviews and awards for a reason. It is about time that Canada got to see why DIRT Magazine ranked our Blacklabel handlebar as one of the top 3 handlebars in the world for 2 straight years and why we have become one of the most sought after companies to work closely with. As the person who saw what Deity could be and formed this brand, I have never been a bigger fan of what we are doing and we cannot wait to show our loyal fans and riders, who have yet to touch a Deity part, what makes us so special.” Eric Davies (Deity, Owner)
