Pioneer’s Cycle Sports Division today announced its appointment of Hans Johnsen Company as a new regional distributor for the Southern region of the U.S. for its cycle sports product offerings. Headquartered in Dallas, Hans Johnsen Company has more than 100 years of history in its market, and has developed an extremely strong and personal relationship with each of its retailer partners. At the end of June, Hans Johnsen Company will be authorized to sell Pioneer’s advanced lineup of cycle computers, power meter crank sets, and cycle accessories in the states of Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana.
Hans Johnsen Company is a welcome addition to Pioneer’s distributor family, priding itself with a “hands on” approach, serving retailers with knowledgeable technical support and responsive customer service. The company also bring years of understanding and experience working with Shimano® products, synergistic with Pioneer’s pairing of its power meters with Shimano Dura-Ace® 9000 and Ultegra® 6800 cranks.
Pioneer’s dual-leg power meter crank sets and SGX-CA500 Cycle-Computer have had great success since being released in early February, providing on-bike, real-time, left and right pedaling power measurements and analysis for professional riders on the Pioneer sponsored Belkin Pro Cycling Team and UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team. The highly precise Pioneer system independently measures torque, force location, and force angle at 12 different points of the pedaling rotation. The system includes an exclusive Force Vector display featured in its SGX-CA500 Cycle-Computer, graphically communicating the user’s left and right leg power output, pedaling efficiency, power loss, torque and force angle. The highly detailed and comprehensive performance analysis gives riders more knowledge of their riding techniques and can be used for routine ride sessions, training and coaching purposes.
