Pro-Tec, the action sports protective gear brand founded in 1973, welcomed young phenom, and X-Games Park Gold medalist, Brighton Zeuner to its endorsement team.
Since her introduction to the skate world about three years ago, the 13-year old Encinitas, CA resident has quickly moved up the ranks and placings, and is now taking the podiums at today’s most recognizable and notable events.
The addition to Pro-Tec comes as she embarks to compete at the Vans Park Series World Championships later this week in Shanghai, China, where she will defend her title as the Women’s World Champion.
On making the switch to Pro-Tec, Zeuner said, “If you’re going to wear a helmet then ride the original and skate with an amazing crew. Skaters like The Gonz, Lizzie Armanto, Jimmy Wilkins and the rest of the team get me psyched.”
“I’ve been a fan of Brighton’s since first meeting her through fellow riders, Lizzie Armanto and Allysha Le. It’s been amazing watching her style and power grow over the last few years. She’s got a bright future ahead and I look forward to seeing it unfold,” stated R.P. Bess, Protec global brand director.
Brighton joins a elite team including Steve Caballero, Christian Hosoi, Mark Gonzales, Bucky Lasek, Jason Jessee, Rune Glifberg, Jimmy Wilkins, Sam Beckett, Lizzie Armanto, Moto Shibata, Alex Perelson, Jordyn Barratt, Josh Borden and Allysha Le.
