Peltor motorsports leaving US market
February 12, 2014 02:16PM
We just learned that Peltor is pulling its Motorsport product line (helmets, intercoms, etc.) out of the US market. We will continue to sell what we can get our hands on.

Grassroots rally. It's what I think about.

Really? I thought Subesports was basically the distributor for them. I know when I tried to get them through my channels my cost was more than Subesports retail. Stilo is the same way for me though.

I talked to a 3M employee who heads up the motorsports division. He stated after they sell what is now available no more is coming into the US.

PELTOR motorsports products are still available at RMA. Good news, because these helmets are synonymous with rally. PLUS, the G79 helmet has a price reduction to $699. Considering that they include Hans posts and earmuff speakers they are a great deal.

So what is real deal here. I saw a quote from 4 star in Canada on Special Stage that said Peltor is not leaving the North American market.

Our source was a 3M distributor. Since then, they are importing Peltor products directly from Europe. Other than the G79 price reduction from $749 to $699, the net result to the customer has been nil.
