ARI Network Services (OTCBB: ARIS) has announced its sponsorship of Klock Werks Kustom Cycles, a leading provider of premium custom products for the powersports industry.
From their first trips to the Bonneville Salt Flats, Klock Werks’ patented Flare Windshield was born out of a need for added stability and better air management. By 2008, not only had the Klock Werks Flare Windshield achieved much success, Laura Klock and daughters Erika and Karlee had become the first mother-daughter-daughter team in land speed racing history to hold records at the same time.
Expanding from a small garage to a larger-scale company required Klock Werks to seek a strong e-commerce site.
“The synergy with ARI was exactly what we had hoped for,” said Laura Klock, vice president and founder of Klock Werks. "As we outgrew our provider, we were blessed to partner with ARI. The value ARI placed on customer service, innovation and passion to be the best was a natural fit. As our brand went worldwide, ARI fueled that growth. It seems only natural that our partnership with ARI extends to our activities at the Bonneville Salt Flats this racing season.”
Added Roy W. Olivier, president and CEO of ARI, “Klock Werks and ARI focus on breaking barriers and innovating for customers. What a fantastic opportunity to support a longstanding customer and industry maverick. We wish Laura and her team the best of luck in their attempt to break a new land speed record this year.”
This year, Team Klock Werks has joined Triumph Motorcycles to attempt to be the "fastest family" in history. Laura Klock and daughters will attempt to be the first mother-daughter-daughter trio in land speed racing history to go over 200 mph on the same bike: a Triumph 675R with a turbo setup. Brian Klock, Laura’s husband and co-founder of Klock Werks, will attempt a record for the "World’s Fastest Trike" on a modified Triumph Rocket III, backed by MotorTrike and Carpenter Racing Engines. Also included in their attempts will be a production record in the 750cc Class on a production Triumph 675R, and a special bike created by a group of students from Pine Bush, N.Y., through the "Helping With Horsepower Bike Rebuild” program.
"None of these attempts are possible without amazing companies like ARI, Triumph, Sony, Pirelli and more who join us in an effort to achieve our race team goals and to make a mark in the history books,” said Laura Klock.
