NEW Eclipse 2009 Distribution for the European Region.

Dear Friends,

In 2006 Dimitri and I decided that we would leave our current employment and start to build the Eclipse Company. Over a short period of time our products have been distributed worldwide and are now well respected, regarded as some of the highest performing kites on the market. At Eclipse our goal is to not only offer a superior product but to also provide the finest customer service available while offering our products at value oriented pricing. In order to fulfill this mission we have decided to make several beneficial changes to our European distribution system.

We are pleased to announce Effective January 1st 2009 Eclipse will be launching an official European distribution center. The Eclipse European distribution will provide our customers with several important benefits, which will enable you to improve your kite ownership experience with Eclipse.

Some noticeable benefits you will see immediately:

BULLET PROOF WARRANTY - Coverage for all Europe, now with every 2009 eclipse kite purchase you get the finest kite warranty program in the industry standard with dedicated service centers throughout Europe.

Fast Delivery: All products will be in stock ready to ship in our European warehouse, dealers will get fast shipping in order to service the customers quickly.

Extended dealer network: Eclipse is working hard to open new dealers throughout the European community. If you are interested in becoming a dealer please contact us for more information concerning opportunities that exist.

Eclipse Rep network: We have launched the Eclipse rep system for Europe, our reps are well known in the kite community and will be happy to service our dealers as well as conduct demos and help promote the brand throughout the European community.
Opening for more team riders: Eclipse is looking for more team riders in Europe, please contact us bellow if your interested. You may qualify for reduced price gear, or full sponsorship depending on your ability’s.

Marketing: Eclipse will be launching an official marketing campaign in Europe; this campaign will consist of increased advertising, a demo tour with team riders and more. We would like all our shops and dealers to participate in the DEMO events so you are able to benefit. We are currently setting up a demo schedule for 2009 season, if you would like to be involved please send us an email and we will make the necessary arrangements.

Standard European Pricing: All Eclipse kites will be sold with specific MSRP for the European region.

Dealer Meeting: This January we are planning an official rep and dealer meeting. If you are a currently dealer you will be receiving news shortly, if you’re a interested dealer please send us an email for your invitations.

In conclusion I am certain this is a very positive development for Eclipse, our and our customers. Eclipse will now have the advantage of offering instant delivery of products, fast service and enhanced marketing for the wider European region. Our goal is to make Eclipse one of the top brands for the European market. Together with you, I am sure we can meet this goal. We cannot thank you enough for your loyal support of our company and products, because of good dealers we are growing as a company and brand; we look forward to continue to offer you the best products and service.

good to know .... I did mention long time ago that , since you had a " shop " in Tarifa ( Skywalker ) I was hoping to see a strong presence of Eclipse kites .... but that really never happened .... I haven´t seen one single Eclipse kite the entire year flying in our spots until maybe a couple of months ago when I saw the first one ....

Well I guess now I can get demo ? also it would be interesting to try one of your new " channel " boards and see how it works on heavy choppy ...

Saludos


Franz

Yes that is becuase the shop we were using in Tarifa sucked- they did not pay their bills at all so we closed them down as a dealer. I dont think they are even in business anymore.

So now we are looking only for the best shops around, ones that are real business and will help the brand grow in the market.
