The Stomp, our mid-size goggles for teens or thinner head forms, opening Pricepoint with offers between 50EUR  and 80EUR RRP

And the Buster RRP 49 to match our new Kids Helmet the Spur

How healthy is the market in Europe?
It was doing much better before the Pandemic, but there is still some “noise” with me too Brands offering generic/off the shelves product selling direct on the internet

What is the impact of COVID-19 on consumer demand and supply chains in your segment?
Demand is going through the “perfect Storm” as Consumers are seeing insecurity in their ability to travel and access to ridding this season. Retailers are suffering a lot from that obviously.

How are you supporting retailers through the pandemic situation?
Extending terms as much as possible, reviewing orders. Whatever we can agree on with retailers to make it through together.
