ZG Collective LLC, a newly formed business focused on North American distribution of outdoor, snowsports, cycling, and active lifestyle brands, announced its partnership with Melon Helmets. Based in Germany, Melon Helmets engineers and manufactures lightweight, protective head fashion with cooling ventilation technology for the active, style-conscious cyclist.
Melon Helmets will be distributed under the ZG Collective name led by COO, Josh Fonner. Aspen, Colo.-based ZG Collective will continue to roll out several global brands in the outdoor, snowsports, cycling and active lifestyle industries in summer 2015, says the company.
“We are eager to introduce Melon Helmets to the North American market segment where we believe the brand will be well-positioned within the urban, mountain bike and lifestyle cycling communities,” says Fonner. “Melon Helmets takes innovative, functional and ergonomic design and adapts it for the modern cyclist at a compelling price point unlike any helmet manufacturer within the market.”
Melon Urban Active Helmets hold several international accolades, including the 2013 Eurobike IF Award, the 2014 Swiss EMPA Test and the 2014 Red Dot Award for product design in a pool of over 4,500 applicants.
