Smith is going to make helmets and Giro is going to make goggles and sunglasses. Currently there are a number of reps that rep both brands. Each brand has stated that this is a conflict. My guess would have been that each rep would stay with Smith it seemed to make more sense. Well, in an early morning phone call today our Smith rep left me a msg stating that he had resigned from Smith. I couldn't believe it. I can only imagine what type of package Giro offered for him to stay with Giro and go with Smith.

Giro owns helmets in ski, snowboard, mountainbike etc. They are the big player. Giro sunglasses goggles integrated with their helmets could be very interesting.
