OPTIMA Batteries to Showcase Industry Professionals and Their Vehicles at 2018 SEMA Show
October 17, 2018 (MILWAUKEE) – OPTIMA® Batteries, a global leader in high-performance automotive and marine batteries and digital battery chargers, invites SEMA attendees to visit the OPTIMA Batteries booth #20323 (Central Hall).
The OPTIMA Batteries booth will be jam packed full of vehicles including Porsches, Mercedes-Benzes, Mitsubishi and Mercury. In addition to one-on-one access with industry professionals, OPTIMA Batteries will be sharing new product concepts.
“The collection of vehicles in our booth this year highlights the versatility of the OPTIMA Batteries brand and our product portfolio,” said Cam Douglass, director of marketing, OPTIMA Batteries, Johnson Controls. “We’ll also be sharing new innovations and concepts around battery accessories that will elevate OPTIMA’s position as The Ultimate Power Source."
Zendex Tool Corp. introduced their newest model in the GoJak® product line, GoJak® SUV G7016 at SEMA 2017 and the response has been quite impressive! The G7016 clearly filled a void on the upper end that the market was demanding. Average tire widths continue to grow, as do vehicle weights with truck sales quite strong in 2018. Heavier electric vehicles that are completely disabled when the batteries are disconnected during vehicle service has also played a role.
The Nelsons™ are an all-new bicycle and multi-sport carrier product line for pick up truck beds. Utilizing Let’s Go Aero’s leading VRack™ technology, the Nelsons take bicycles and gear storage, transport, and organization to the second level, leaving the inside of the truck bed fully open for other cargo.
The Nelson family includes four models to accommodate varying truck bed configurations including the Full Nelson™, Half Nelson™, and Three-Quarter Nelson™.
Universal to all models is two bike carrying capacity using the modular and removable SpinWing™. The SpinWing turns 360 degrees for easy loading access from the ground or interior of the bed. A four-point adjustable wheel grip system provides Zero-G™ stability of each bicycle, while the adjustable Wings accommodate all bike sizes and frame styles. An all-new anti-theft RingLocker™ security system is included to lock bikes to the Nelson and separately, the Nelson carrier to the truck bed.
Keeping in step with both vehicle and gear trends, Yakima Racks, an industry leader in vehicle racks and cargo solutions for almost 40 years, is introducing its most rugged collection yet in 2019. The new products will be shown at SEMA (booth 34101), which is taking place October 30 through November 2 in Las Vegas, Nev.
Central to its 2019 line is the new HD Truck Rack Collection. Built for the back roads and tested to Yakima’s new Off-Road Rated standards, the heavy-duty rack collection includes three different systems: OverHaul HD, OutPost HD and BedRock HD. Each easily converts almost any truck into a gear-hauling machine.
