IMBA Chapter Jerseys from Primal Wear

IMBA now has more than 100 official chapters all over the U.S., from the Northwest Trail Alliance in Oregon to the Tallahassee Mountain Bike Association in Florida. Many of them are working with Above-and-Beyond IMBA member, Primal Wear, on custom jerseys, which are now available for wholesale orders placed by local bike shops. This is a great way to draw added sales and to inspire your customers to help IMBA and its chapters build and maintain more great trails in your community. Please contact Andrea [dot] d [at] primalwear [dot] com (Andrea Doenges) for order information.

IMBA Polar Bottles for Retailers

Polar Bottle Logo

At the 2010 Bicycle Leadership Conference, Polar Bottle’s founder was inspired to make a large donation to IMBA’s groundbreaking Public Lands Inistiative (PLI). After witnessing the PLI’s success and the energy of the IMBA network to improve bike trails everywhere, Polar Bottle joined IMBA as an official corporate member.

To celebrate, Polar Bottle is offering IMBA retail partners an opportunity to order limited edition, IMBA-logo Polar Bottles at more than 20-percent off wholesale.

Polar Bottle will donate three dollars from each IMBA bottle purchased from its online retail store to IMBA’s Trail Building Fund. We encourage each of you to do the same! Its a low-cost, high-impact way to increase your support for IMBA’s work while helping to spread IMBA’s sustainable trails message among your local riders.

All retailers and brands participating in our Sales 4 Trails giveback program (on any product) will be promoted to our 35,000 individual members in the membership benefits section of the website.

To get the custom bottles in your store and request your IMBA discount, please contact mike [at] polarbottle [dot] com or call 800.440.0358. Wholesale orders are available in cases of 25 bottles each. With larger orders, Polar Bottle will include a free display case. Click here for more details.
