In 2008, two partners came aboard and the three of them purchased the LED light bar company outright and began JST Performance, Inc. Jason Christiansen, Taylor Anderson and Seth Anderson were all friends who shared the thrill of speed, passion and the need to kick up some dirt, and were now on a mission to make Rigid Industries a household name. In the early days you would see each of them building, packaging, selling and shipping the LED light bars. On any given day they did, and still do, have that hands on approach that ensures Rigid’s quality and designs stay a world leader in LED lighting technology.

THE BIRTH OF SCOTT
The sport of skiing was revolutionized with a technical innovation from Ed Scott, a talented engineer and ski racer living in Sun Valley, Idaho. Ed Scott’s invention of the first tapered aluminium ski pole immediately replaced the sport’s existing use of bamboo and steel. That revolutionary invention launched a new brand, SCOTT, and fundamentally positioned Scott as a technical product leader in the skiing market. Ed Scott’s initial vision of technical innovation would serve as the cornerstone company philosophy as the brand matured and expanded to new markets.
MOTOCROSS MARKET ENTRY
In 1970, Scott entered the motocross goggle market with the first ever motocross specific goggle and later introduced motocross boots, grips and accessories.

It’s no coincidence that Bell is both the first name in speed and the first name in helmets. Born in the 1950’s California hot rod and racing scene, Bell founder Roy Richter built an entire industry anticipating the unmet needs of those with a speed-hungry disposition. People wanted to drive fast … he corralled all the go-fast parts he could find into the world’s first speed shop. They wanted to race … he built them race cars. And when the need-for-speed started to reveal some grim realities, Roy did something about that too and Bell Helmets was born.
Roy Richter spent his life removing the limits of what was possible — and his unlimited spirit has been Bell’s guiding light for nearly 60 years, earning the admiration, trust and loyalty of generations of champions. Throughout those years nearly every advance on the list of helmet “firsts” were built under Bell’s auspices. That drive to anticipate and create continues, as much a part of Bell’s ethos today as it was back in Roy’s day.
Whether for auto racing, motorcycling or bicycling, Bell is synonymous with instilling confidence and enabling awesomeness. Established 1954, proven ever since.

Over the decades, we’ve seen an amazing transformation in the world of motorcycles and ATVs. The progression of the technology is one of the challenges that keeps us going. FMF was there in the days when the singleshock and watercooled engines were huge innovations and we’re glad to be here now for the aluminum chassis and electronic fuel injection. Our goal will never change – take the most advanced machinery to its limit by building the world’s best performing exhausts. And its a fact, we build every exhaust by hand from start to finish right here in the U.S.
At the end of the day, there is always one major force keeping us motivated–throwing a leg over the bike and heading for the trails or the track. The biggest reward for us is knowing we’re helping our customers get the most out of their riding experience. We still ride every chance we get so we never forget why we got into this business in the first place.
