JULIAN, Calif. (BRAIN) — Clear Bicycle Company, the latest endeavor by industry veteran Skip Hess, has hired Steve Boehmke for sales and marketing support.
Clear offers a $699 bike, called the One, as well as components and softgoods. The company said it offers IBD “seriously profitable margins.”
“When I saw the bike and accessory designs, I just asked Skip, ‘how can I help?'” said Boehmke. “He replied ‘do what you do!’ which is to get the word out and connect with the right dealers and media across the country.”
The One model has 29x 40 mm Kenda micro-knob tires, Avid disc brakes, SRAM 9-speed shifting, a two-piece chromoly spindled crank set, microfiber padded saddle, and a full pressure-formed 6061 aluminum frame design exclusive to Clear.
Designed for commuting and campus use, the One also has bolt-on axles for theft protection.
