BRAIN Sales guy Robert Roman and I visited Sports Multiplied in Carlsbad this week. Richard Verney and his team of 11 or so distribute Aussie brand 2XU in the U.S. out of the small office and warehouse in Carlsbad's industrial zone.
The team has recently taken on a new project bringing in Bont Cycling Shoes, another Aussie brand, and will launch at Eurobike. We don't want to give it all away, but they'll be bringing in a full line of road, mountain, triathlon shoes, as well as a time trial specific pair. They're all fully heat moldable after a 20-minute bake at 160 degrees in your oven (don't worry if you mess up, I'm told you can rebake your shoes and start over). They look pretty snazzy too. Here's a peak:
Stop by the Bont booth at Eurobike or Interbike for more info.
