Under the agreement, Hibbert and his team will use Bosch power tools exclusively for all maintenance, upgrades and repair of race equipment and facilities. The Bosch logo will appear on Hibbert’s competition snowmobiles, branded apparel and transport vehicle.
“Bosch power tools represents a leadership brand in a tough, competitive industry where winning each day is important,” said David Pizzolato, group manager, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “We’re going to align our business with a winner, and there’s no more dominant winner in the U.S. right now than Tucker Hibbert. He represents what our company is all about.”
Snocross is the most popular form of snowmobile racing. Racers routinely hit speeds of up to 60 mph with jump distances exceeding 75 feet. Throughout the winter, snocross races are held at fan-friendly venues across the U.S. and broadcast worldwide.
In 2011, 2014 and 2015, Hibbert earned ESPY Award nominations in the Best Male Action Sports Athlete category. Last winter, he captured his 100th Pro National victory, ninth National Snocross Championship and 13th X Games medal. Hibbert is the second youngest X Games gold medalist, taking his first award at age 15, and has earned the most medals awarded by X Games in a single winter sport.
The Hibbert team was using Bosch power tools prior to the agreement. They cited the brand’s overall quality, but in particular how the company’s cordless tools withstand cold temperatures, yet deliver maximum performance. Bosch lithium-ion batteries are performance rated to -4? F.
“We’re excited to welcome Bosch to our team as the official power tools sponsor,” said Hibbert. “Our goal as a team is to work with companies and brands that have the same goals and push to be the best every day. We’ve put Bosch tools to the test and know they can get the job done.”
