(Lexington, SC) — January 11, 2021 — HLC announced today the addition of Leatt and Swagman to their US product offering. Limited inventory for both brands is available now at, but dealers can place backorders to ensure priority when more arrives.

"We're really excited to be kicking off 2021 with the addition of these two great brands," said Dave Savard, HLC's Director of Product and Brand Management. "Leatt reinforces our selection of MTB products and with car racks in such high demand, partnering with Swagman is a big win for our retailers."

For the last 17 years, Leatt's commitment to rider protection has resulted in high-quality products that provide thrill-seekers the confidence to push themselves further than they thought possible. HLC will carry a selection of helmets, protection, shoes, apparel and gloves.

Swagman is one of the pioneers of the hitch style bike rack and offers a wide range of styles, including fat bike, e-bike and zero frame contact options. Inventory will be available from HLC's US warehouses later in Q1.

"After the 2020 season, it became evident that expanding access to Swagman within the USA was essential to the on-going success of the brand; we are excited HLC is partnering with us to offer our brand to their vast network of retailers," said Dave Michael, Director of Sales & Marketing for Swagman."

About Swagman

Over the years, that small bike rack company based in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia grew to include numerous ground-breaking designs in the North American Bicycle, RV and Automobile markets.
