Friday, 01 June 2012

bomber gear logoBomber Gear this year committed to sponsoring the Teva Mountain Games, its first sponsorship of the Games since joining the Confluence Watersports family of brands last year. Joining sister brands Dagger and Wave Sport, Bomber Gear is set to head to Vail, Colo., May 31-June 3 for the celebration of active lifestyles and mountain culture.

Over the past 11 years, the Teva Mountain Games (TMG) have grown into one of the premier outdoor sporting events in the world. With Gore Creek, Homestake Creek, Eagle River, the Colorado River, and the Vail Whitewater Park all right in its backyard, Vail is a paddler’s mecca. The spirit of competition, sense of adventure, and enthusiasm for outdoor sports at the Games make them a perfect breeding ground for the growth of kayaking and the paddling community alike, which also means the Games are an ideal partner for Bomber Gear, a company built upon the pillars of excellence, passion and authenticity.

“Bomber Gear finds inspiration in those immersed in their sport,” said Jessica Prescott, marketing communications manager for Confluence Watersports, parent company of Bomber Gear. “The Games foster this type of community of committed athletes and puts them to the test every year on bikes, trails, crags and water, and that’s exactly what we strive for – authenticity in conception and excellence in execution. Bomber Gear is proud to support these values and to sponsor the 2012 Teva Mountain Games.”

Bomber Gear is sponsoring the Steep Creek Championship, providing a Bomb Dry Top and K-Bomb sprayskirt to the winners of both the men’s and women’s divisions.

Bomber Gear will have a booth in “Gear Town” near the Vail Whitewater Park along with Wave Sport. The 2012 product line will be on display, and the booth crew will have games going on for chances to win great Bomber Gear swag. Bomber Gear products will be available for purchase at the Colorado Kayak Supply tent nearby.

About Bomber Gear
Bomber Gear was founded in Durango, Colo. in 1992, by expert kayaker Rick Franken. Franken bought his first sewing machine because he and a small group of adventure-seeking friends needed better gear – better gear that let them push the limits and perform at their best while staying warm, dry and comfortable. The goal was to design and manufacture task-specific paddling gear that worked for everyone. Today, Bomber Gear is a premium, authentic paddlesports brand that continues to specialize in the design of performance whitewater skirts and technical paddlesports apparel.
