    Ride-Tek Gear Launches 2014 Snowmobile Clothing Line

    The Ride-Tek Shredder combines Taslan Shield Technology and a climate-balancing Reissa liner at a great price

    Ride-Tek announces an all-new 2014 snowmobile clothing lineup rich with innovation that matches the manufacturer’s launch of the 2014 snowmobiles, but at a price that dealers can sell to any customer with confidence. Ride-Tek gear gives snowmobilers an affordable yet advanced clothing system that empowers them to immerse themselves in their favorite track-driven escape with no worries about torn clothing, excessive dampness, uncomfortable temperatures, or other downers. Ride-Tek’s premium Shredder line has an outer shell made with Taslan Shield Technology. Ride-Tek’s Taslan Shield is a 21st-Century polyamide innovation formulated for maximum comfort that still retains the waterproof, breathable, tear-resistant features needed in rugged winter adventure wear. Designed with decades of experience in the worst winter conditions, Ride-Tek offers the most affordable, wearable and durable clothing styles on the market today! All Ride-Tek jackets can be purchased with one of two zip-out liner choices to further optimize clothing performance, with high-quality gloves and bibs to match.

    Company CEO Michael Killian views Ride-Tek as the best 2014 snowmobile clothing option for dealers in the fickle snowmobile market: “I am extremely pleased to offer powersports dealers a winter clothing line that carries very little risk and has great upside potential. We’ve all seen that high-priced clothing lines are a hard sell in a winter with poor snow and can become outdated when design trends change, but low-priced clothing lines don’t carry the brand panache or features that new sled buyers want. Ride-Tek is the first snowmobile clothing option that can satisfy new sled buyers as well as today’s snowmobilers who keep their old iron in shape for a precious handful of rides per year. Our cutting-edge Taslan Shield Technology and melded Reissa liners are unbelievably comfortable and perform as well as higher-priced brands in real-world conditions. Just as important, the classic styling themes we’ve chosen will fit with sleds made in the past, as well as those being built today.”

    The Ride-Tek Shredder is the ultimate solution for extreme back country and deep woods powder.
