It's time to let the cat out of the bag! Earlier this year, RIP-IT, the market leader in softball protective equipment for over a decade, acquired Ringor, an industry leading brand bringing female athletes softball cleats that are as tough as the players who wear them. The acquisition helps fulfill our mission to design and bring to market the most loved products for female athletes. Together, Ringor and RIP-IT will elevate the softball experience by providing more access and more opportunities to softball athletes.
What does this mean for you?
This acquisition brings together two talented teams who will leverage Ringor’s direct to consumer expertise and RIP-IT’s retailer network to deliver a new softball experience that allows you to shop when, where, and how you want. By combining Ringor’s leading cleat comfort technology with RIP-IT’s unparalleled portfolio of national and international retail partners, we will be able to increase the softball community access to durable, comfortable cleats. The result of increased access to these products will be significant, meaning fewer players will have to play softball games wearing terrible cleats.
Ringor Cleats will not change. The comfort and durability you have come to expect will still remain. RIP-IT will be developing it's own cleats to go into retailers in late 2021.
RIP-IT helmets, fielder's masks, and uniforms can now be paired with the most durable cleats on the market in one phone call. And now, you'll be able to order the best cleats, uniforms, helmets, and face masks in the game with just one phone call or click of your mouse.
Another benefit to our softball community will be the continued excellent service that Ringor customers and RIP-IT customers have come to expect. Our number one goal through this entire experience has been to remain focused on our customers. Despite the challenges that an acquisition brings, especially during the difficult times of a pandemic, we steadfastly focused on delivering premium service to our customers. We are committed, as a unified brand, to ensure our customers continue to receive the premium customer service they have come to expect.
