Correct!
Dye Snow - Innovative top quality products for todays most demanding Riders.

I think it is awesome they are trying to branch out! Pro-Tec makes very good gear and it will be interesting to see what technologies crossover from one sport to the other.

I think what is going to happen is with pro-tec/vans stores around the world, you will more than likely find dye selling their brands in there as well. Why not cut out the the middle man. It makes sense to combine dye snow, now dye protec into one retail store. Maybe even Dye paintball as well. I know as a retail pro shop Dye is really pushing the MAP pricing. What better way to ensure the their high end stuff stays that way. Open your own stores. You might as well buy a company that is all ready known for high end stuff and have the stores in place.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Agreed. I'd like to see Dye push to become a more household name. By branching out into other sports they will inevitably bring more back into paintball. Having a reputation for quality products is the best way to improve your customer base.

Maybe one of the Eng will have a smart idea and make a helmet mask combo. HMMMMMMM didn't we use protec helmet back in the day. Worked out well from what I remember.

Since I hate snow, I'll look forward to paintball helmet innovation. However I think RAP4 will beat everyone to it.

Glad to see stuff like this happening.

Later,

problem is, DYE has a reputation for looking flashy and being overpriced. Hopefully DYE brings those attributes... no where.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

Where does Dye come up with these ridiculous prices???

I thought Oakley's were over priced but now there's a new ******* on the block...

Good for them, but I doubt it will do anything for their paintball line. I don't see dye being in paintballs future for too much longer. There is money to be made elsewhere and paintball technology has plateaued especially in the dm line once the milsim fad dies paintball really has nowhere to go. At least their preparing for their future.
