Italian motorcycle boots manufacturer Gianni Falco Srl has appointed Swansea-based distributor Tri-Motive as its sole UK trade supplier.
Founded over 20 years ago, the family business is based near Venice in the heart of an established sportswear industrial district where it focusses its efforts solely on the design and manufacture of motorsports boots.
Falco has a comprehensive range of boots with 38 different models to suit all riding styles spanning the disciplines of racing, touring, off-road, urban, and custom, together with a range of kids and casual general-purpose boots. The majority of Falco’s protective riding footwear is CE approved and incorporates many innovative features such as D30 impact protection to a number of its products. Falco is in fact, the only mainstream manufacturer to apply the British-made D30 shock absorbing material to motorcycle boot design.
“It’s fair to say that Falco hasn’t enjoyed the same high profile as its competitors in the UK,” said Tri-Motive director Alex Orazietti, “but we intend to change that with a structured trade-only distribution network. With full factory support, extending our ethos of protecting dealer margins and areas, and applying our no-internet-discounting policy to the Falco brand, dealers can have confidence in stocking the products, knowing that their investment will not be devalued.”
Suggested selling prices start from £79.99 for the new-for-2013 City Air Juke model with the top-line off-road Extreme Pro 3 SMTD, complete with D30 and also new-for-2013, at £299.99.
