Spy Optic recently announced that it has made a multi-year sponsorship deal with Mike Montgomery. Montgomery will be wearing Spy goggles and sunglasses through 2011, and for an undisclosed term thereon.
This signing was quite apparent at the Kokanee Crankworx Red Bull Joyride event, where Montgomery had someone shielding him from the sun with a large Spy Optic branded umbrella.
“Mike’s slopestyle runs leave spectators either fist-pumping or slack-jawed and speechless, and his jumps push the limits of the sport so far that it hurts,” says Victor Sheldon, Spy motocross and cycling marketing manager. “He’s a rider’s rider, a guy that other competitors cheer-on because he’s legit, he has absolutely no fear, and he’s a solid dude on and off the bike.”

“I’ve been a Spy guy from the start and I’ll be a Spy guy when I retire 100 years from now,” says Montgomery. “They make the best goggles around, their new Performance sunglasses are insane, and the people at the company are the real deal. I’m stoked to be officially on board with the team, and I’m looking forward to going big in my Spys.”
