PARTS iD, Inc. Launches Exclusive ARC Moto Gear Motorcycle

CRANBURY, N.J., July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PARTS iD, Inc. (NYSE American: ID) (“PARTS iD” or “Company”), the owner and operator of, among other verticals, “MOTORCYCLEiD.com,” a leading digital commerce platform for the motorcycle aftermarket, today announced the launch of its company-exclusive “ARC Moto Gear” brand of clothing. Riders can choose from a complete line of jackets, pants, boots, and gloves, in sizes and styles for the most discriminating buyer.

MOTORCYCLEiD.com knows You Are What You Ride™, and the need for appropriate clothing is critical to maximizing both safety and the riding experience. Smart riders know that even on the warmest days, t-shirts, shorts, and sandals are not going to help should there be an unwanted “event.” Seasoned motorcyclists invest in a full suit of protective clothing and will replace items as they wear out. The ARC Moto Gear clothing line, only at MOTORCYCLEiD.com, offers a combination of protection, style, and comfort at prices which makes the value proposition to the consumer unrivaled among its competitors.

Jackets are available in traditional leather along with lighter textile designs and mesh fabric choices which promote greater airflow for hot-weather riding. Bike pants can be purchased in traditional and jeans fabrics. Footwear runs the gamut from riding “sneakers” to short and tall boots, providing a wide range of foot and ankle support. Riding gloves are manufactured in several material choices, including leather, textile, and mesh, all with the proper padding for grip and protection. Color choices allow the rider to mix-and-match among these items, with sizes ranging from small through 2X-large, so everyone is sure to find the right fit.

“We are thrilled to offer the ARC Moto Gear brand of clothing as it represents the best of what our customers want: quality, selection, and value,” said Nino Ciappina, CEO of PARTS iD, Inc. “Motorcyclists can now shop for bike clothing at the same time they shop for bike parts and accessories on our industry-leading website MOTORCYCLEiD.com. For the company, ARC Moto Gear marks the first in-house brand for another vertical outside of CARiD.com. This is an important milestone which paves the way for us to continue developing our private label business with high-quality products to drive customer loyalty and profitability.”

Like all of PARTS iD’s stores, shopping at MOTORCYCLEiD prioritizes the delivery of an informative, intuitive and confident online purchase experience. The entire selection of repair parts, accessories, performance items, and clothing is cataloged within the Company’s proprietary fitment data, helping to ensure that the customer gets the right part the first time.
PARTS iD’s proven commitment to innovation and first-class customer service was recently validated by the Company’s 2021 industry-leading Net Promoter Scores.
