2015 Sponsors Overview & Team Perks
We have some great sponsors and have the opportunity to be ambassadors for a few of them. In exchange for some web space and logos on our gear, they provide us with discounts which help us increase our ability to perform well and spend more effort accomplishing our team goals, which are to raise awareness and FUNDs for NL.
We ask that all team members support these sponsors and do our best to be good partners and stewards of the resources we've been provided. Let's prove to them that we care about their partnership with us. Plus, these are great places and brands.
Here is an overview of each sponsor. Details on what each sponsor provides team members, contact us directly. We keep this to ourselves in the best interest of our sponsors.
Summit City Bikes - Summit City Bikes has been a great sponsor over the past two years and we're looking to partner on several new initiatives in 2015. Including a co-branded water bottle that they'll be selling in their store. They are one of the best shops in NE Indiana and are know for their great customer service and commitment to the Fort Wayne community. Each Team NL member is added to their database and is qualified for their Customer Rewards program and receives a team percentage which is a bit higher than normal customers.
Three Rivers Running Company - This is a fantastic running specific store in Fort Wayne and a tremendous supporter of Team NL and many other running teams. We buy all our running and workout shirts, shorts, and shoes here with the discount they provide us to do so. They also allow us to do group purchasing for team members to get shoes and whatever gear they need with some exclusions.
- Group Buy (March 1-7) - We will be having our Spring Team NL Group Buy opportunity the first week in March. This allows you to select any in-stock or custom order shoes and receive a discount of 35%. That same discount can be applied to in-stock clothing. You need to email us if you want to participate in that.
SRAM - New for 2015 is our designation as a SRAM Ambassador team. We can do group orders on all SRAM products that include Zipp, Quarq, Rock Shox, Avid, and Truvativ products and they'll offer our team a great discount as a way to support us. They have hundreds of different products, so if you're interested, we can send you an inventory list to choose from. We'd like to do an order in Spring & late Summer/Fall.
Fizik & Kask Helmets - Also new for 2015 if our collaboration with Fizik products (bars, seats, tape & accessories, & shoes) and Kask Helmets. We will likely place an order in March for some product and if you want to take part in that order, let us know. We can get estimates on items you want more info on if interested.
Nuun Hydration - Have you had this stuff yet? If not, go and buy a tube or four. Nuun makes electrolyte enhanced drink tabs which are designed to keep you hydrated. Many of our team members have preferred Nuun tablets for the past few years because of how great they work at keeping you hydrated. Once you try them, you'll not want to drink other leading sports drinks ever again. Some of our favorite flavors are cherry limeade, grape, and tropical. Nuun will be offering our team members a great discount on the product that will make you want to put it into every cup of water you pour.
Mad Apple CrossFit - If you've not tried CrossFit yet, you need to. Mad Apple is a fantastic box with a large number of Team NL supporters and great people all around. Mad Apple provides free on-ramp to all Team NL members if you sign up to join. They also communicate on our behalf at events throughout the year.
