Penticton, BC, September 12, 2013: Toker Engineering has selected Podium Imports as their exclusive Canadian distributor for SaltStick electrolyte capsules and dispensers, effective November 1st.
SaltStick Caps are the most comprehensive solid electrolyte source to minimize muscle cramping and heat stress during training and endurance events. It is formulated to closely resemble the electrolyte profile lost in sweat, with a buffered salt composition that helps digestion and absorption. The unique SaltStick capsule dispenser fits inside bicycle aerobars and handlebars, and on running belts, keeping capsules clean and dry while permitting one-hand dispensing of capsules.
“This is a great addition to our product line-up, and a great fit with our range of premium brands for performance-driven cyclists, runners and triathletes”, according to Podium owner Brian McCoy. “I have used SaltStick capsules myself and was an enthusiastic believer in them long before the opportunity to distribute them came up.”
Toker Engineering owner Jonathan Toker stated, “I am confident that we have the right distributor in Canada with Podium Imports. SaltStick’s existing dealer base is already familiar with Brian’s team, and Podium has a broad reach across Canada that will take SaltStick well beyond where it is presently available.”
Notable international athletes currently using SaltStick products include Chris McCormack, Craig Alexander, Greg Bennett, Andy Potts and Jamie Whyte. Toker Engineering LLC developed the SaltStick products, led by Jonathan Toker, Ph.D, an elite-level triathlete who hails from Canada and lives in Southern California. He received a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute in 2001, and raced in the professional ranks as a triathlete and runner for 10 years.
