“The Sprinter quietly dominates every task we throw at it [while]
the Blue TEC diesel engine is incredibly efficient.” –Justin Summers
KLIM has a 2012 Freightliner Sprinter Model 2500 High-Roof Cargo Van with 170-
inch wheelbase, and it’s on the road nearly every week as part of the company’s
“Where’s the Sprinter?” promotional calendar. “The Blue TEC diesel engine is
incredibly efficient,” Summers says. “Whether we’re hauling staff to a trade show,
transporting a store display and inventory to a dealership, or filling it up with
motorcycles for a ride event, it can literally handle whatever we throw at it and give
us good fuel economy in return.”
Summers says the KLIM Sprinter “is the vehicle to use if you want to tell a technical
story.” Its Special-Ops matte black and carbon fiber customer graphic wrap and
powder-coated wheels make it “the coolest Sprinter we’ve ever seen. It has a
huge billboard presence that tells people KLIM is in town.” Sprinter’s versatility
means KLIM can haul its entire sales department to the airport in the morning
and motorcycles to Moab in the afternoon, and its reputation for durability was an
important factor in Summers’s purchase decision. “We have friends with older
Sprinters pushing the half-million-mile mark without a hiccup,” he says. “We can’t
wait to get there with ours and experience that sort of reliability.”

From airport runs to desert drop-offs
A vehicle that reflects company values
Comfort, durability, value, and exceeding customer expectations are characteristics
that define KLIM USA, a global leader in designing, developing, and manufacturing
advanced motorsports apparel for snowmobile and motorcycle riders. It should
come as no surprise, then, that founder and president Justin Summers chose the
Freightliner Sprinter to take KLIM’s story on the road. “The Sprinter mirrors our
values perfectly, with comfort, durability, value, and functionality,” he says.
KLIM builds gear for a specific user, and they try to “really get inside that person’s
experience to develop something that is better than everything else available,”
Summers explains. That formula works so well that the company constantly
finds new user groups to target. That’s a “great problem to have,” he says, but
it’s a challenge when it comes to focusing limited resources on core groups.
Competition in the marketplace is another challenge―one KLIM meets by refusing
to compromise on quality and durability. Its marketing program focuses on educating
consumers about the advantages of KLIM’s approach, and the Sprinter is a big help
in all its efforts.
