Quality Bicycle Products announced on July 7 that it is the sole distributor of MET and Bluegrass helmets in North America. Q will carry a broad range of MET and Bluegrass helmets in its six North American distribution centers, with full availability beginning February 2022 to all specialty bicycle retailers with a Q account.

"MET Helmets and its subsidiary Bluegrass offer truly innovative and exciting helmet lines for retailers and consumers, with a comprehensive array of styles, colors and price points," said Joe Benedict, Director of Distribution Product at Q. "MET Helmets' mission is to create iconic designs that inspire confidence and enhance the cycling experience. They're designed in the Italian Alps, with a heritage of innovation spanning more than 30 years. As a premium brand, they're an optimal choice for retailers who want either a primary or secondary helmet line to service the full range of rider categories and styles."

"We're thrilled that MET and Bluegrass helmets will be available to all of Q's 5,000-plus North American retailers through its distribution centers in the US and Canada," said Jo McAleer, Business Development Manager at MET. "Retailers can now easily access our widest range of helmets that meet CPSC standards, with Q's convenient ordering and just-in-time ground shipping that maximize profitability."

Q is taking program orders on MET helmets beginning in July, with delivery expected in fall 2021. The Bluegrass line of gravity-focused helmets and protective gear will be available in spring 2022. In addition to product sales and distribution, Q will also support MET and Bluegrass retailers as the sole provider of warranty and service in North America.
