We hope KLIM gets their act together and come out with a DUAL SPORT suit in female sizing that is the same quality as the guys in the very near future. We LOVE KLIM but it seems other companies such as BMW are a head of the game treating grrls as equals when it comes to the ADV suits.
COME ON KLIM!
Dear KLIM! You know we as advgrrls LOVE your gear, but let’s not over do it when it comes to PINK and calling us girls. We took your survey and I bet many did too. It’s grrls or women I mean really??? The pink piping might appeal to some but those who ride ADV bikes I hardly doubt will be interested in PINK, we just want good gear, equal to the guys that fit our bods!
This is just one part of the completely new 2013 line from Klim.

What do you think about this “monopoly” happening in this market?

What is Polaris Industries up to? The Minnesota-based outfit is buying companies across a wide product range: electric-car makers GEM and Goupil Industrie, engineering and prototype firm Swissauto, outdoor-gear-
maker KLIM and even Indian. An all-new Indian powered by a redrawn V-Twin engine is expected from Polaris’ Spirit Lake, Iowa, plant this year. There is also a “strategic partnership” with electric-motorcycle-producer Brammo. Continue reading
Addition of KLIM enhances Polaris offerings in the parts, garments and accessories market
THANKS DAVE for the heads up!
MINNEAPOLIS (December 6, 2012) — Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) today announced the acquisition of Teton Outfitters, LLC, a privately owned, Rigby, Idaho-based company which designs, develops and distributes KLIM Technical Riding Gear. Calendar year 2012 sales for KLIM are anticipated to approach $30 million. KLIM is an industry leader in technical riding gear. This acquisition adds KLIM to Polaris’ growing parts, garments and accessories (PG&A) business. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Sounds too good to be true but apparently it is!
Rigby Idaho is central to some of the world’s most authentic, adventuresome and demanding riding conditions. It’s no wonder why KLIM creates the most technical riding gear available… we live where it’s most needed!
This ADV riding makes ours look like a walk in the park…amazing pics and story!

There had been a lot of focus on the outstanding achievements of our sponsored racers this year, with good reason due to their incredible results (Graham Jarvis, Lyndon Poskitt and Stan Watt), so now their various expeditions are in progress we thought we’d switch the focus to our supported Adventure Riders
2012 sees groundbreaking rides in progress from the Husaberg Adventure Team, Sibirsky Extreme and Continental Drift riders.
We post highlights from trips to the Adventure-Spec Facebook page ( ‘like’ us! ) Continue reading

As you will see from the pictures you can tell the last day of our trip to Idaho and back was typical “wet” coast weather. While riding in temperatures from 12 C to 42 C…basically low 50′s to triple digits in Fahrenheit, we almost had to turn the heat on for the last push.
Last day of riding for us was actually something we expected…pouring rain almost all the way home from Fort Stevens. But in meanwhile who does not LOVE a fire while camping…? The second to last day was a mix bag. We just took our time and enjoyed exploring.
Soaked but dry thanks to KLIM!
Our TRACK via SPOT Connect (CLICK the link to the left) so far this trip. July 9th – July 20th 2012. Tomorrow will be our last day of traveling for this 2012 KLIM Adventure! Not a pretty track but we covered some decent areas. Continue reading
Re-blogging my own post to just remind everyone we are taking off today for a couple of weeks. Blog will be update when we can and if you want you can take a look at our GPS track live as we figure out where we are going on this trip other than Rigby, ID.
On our trip will be using our SPOT Connect for tracking purposes. This is so useful for our friends and family to keep an eye on us while traveling and in way easy on us so we do not have to make phone calls. So, feel free as I say follow the bouncing ball and see where we are. From July 12-16 we will be camping out while attending the KLIM Adventure rally. The SPOT will not be activated at that time but before, July 9th and after see where we go because we have no idea where we are heading after KLIM.
See our other SPOT adventures here: SPOT PAGE
SPOT KLIM ADVENTURE TRIP and then WHO KNOWS LINK!
If at anytime the SPOT is not sending out our GPS coordinates please feel free to comment here. We do not always check to see if the SPOT is working. Thanks.
Ready to go early in the morning! Remember if you want to know where we are going because we really don’t follow our SPOT page.
At least we will cool down at night! Could be nice weather for the Klim rally!
