An announcement was made from KIDO Sports Co. Ltd. regarding the future of Scorpion Sports on Dec. 10.
“In response to the news that made the rounds late yesterday, we, at KIDO Sports Co. Ltd. can confirm that we did in fact shut down our Scorpion Sport Inc ‘SSI’ division. The move was made as a direct consequence to its new alliance with exclusive distributor Western Power Sports (announced in October 2017). With distribution and logistics in WPS’s capable hands, KIDO Sports can now focus entirely on the development, manufacturing and marketing of its extensive line of Scorpion EXO helmets and apparel. To put it bluntly, Scorpion EXO is not going anywhere. In fact, thanks to its new alliance with distribution powerhouse WPS, a renewed focus on our brand, and the addition of a few key team members in development and marketing, 2018 has already proven to be a remarkable improvement over 2017, with significant growth in our dealer network and sales to match. Capitalizing on this momentum, we expect to continue the trend in 2019 as our relationship with WPS truly hits its stride coupled with an extensive new model release set to hit Jan. 7.”
