The addition of the Heim offerings helps to diversify the already strong e.thirteen product line.Dave Weagle, president of e.thirteen had this to say, “We’re thrilled to bring the 3-Guide and Jon’s other designs into the e.thirteen family. We’ve long recognized the quality and performance of the Heim product, and its unique position in the marketplace. The timing to bring a more Cross Country and All-Mountain lightweight product into our line is perfect, and we’re excited to develop new designs that fall within the scope of the Heim patent portfolio. We are dedicated and able to carry on Heim’s tradition of quality, USA based manufacturing, and customer service. The fit is just perfect for us, we couldn’t be more excited!”
Jon Heim, founder of Montara MTB and designer of the 3-Guide added, “I could not be more stoked than to be working with Dave Weagle and the legendary e.thirteen components! They are well known innovators and fellow bike geeks. This is a true win-win situation – it frees me up to work on other projects and go in some new directions, and expands e.thirteen’s product line. They will be able to put a real sales and marketing effort behind the products, something I’ve never been able to do. It also gives them the intellectual property to expand their product lines.”
New designs incorporating e.thirteen’s Heim patent are planned to be released in the coming weeks. A sneak peek of the upcoming first offering, the lightweight 99 gram 3RS (3 Ring Security) is being released today.About ethirteen componentse.thirteen components
