Oxtar brand boots will no longer be carried by Fairchild Sports, but will instead be distributed by Helmet House.
Fairchild Sports and Oxtar recently announced a mutual agreement to end their distribution agreement.
Fairchild Sports stopped accepting orders for Oxtar boots on Feb. 23, but will continue to honor warranty claims for 12 months, through February 2007, on any Oxtar boots previously purchased through Fairchild.
Fairchild Sports says it hopes to concentrate on its core brands and OEM business. Fairchild's brand mix includes the Hein Gericke brand of motorcycle gear and the G-Line for Women, as well as Held gloves and Schuberth helmets. The company's OEM customers include Harley-Davidson, Honda and Yamaha Genuine apparel.
Tucker Rocky Distributing acquired the FirstGear brand of apparel and accessories from Fairchild Sports, and began handling all inquiries regarding FirstGear sales and distribution as of August 19.
