Prevention is better than an ounce of cure. This is especially true for everybody and that includes the motorcycle drivers, whether for personal purposes or for extreme sports enthusiasts. Prevention here means protection that is also equivalent to the phrase “Safety First”.
Speaking of safety first, wearing protective gears (such as helmets, shades and rider gloves, among others), when riding a motorcycle is a must.
In this way, drivers/riders will be able to save themselves from any untoward harm that may arise due to unexpected accidents that might happen while they’re on the road. For instance, protective shades can protect the eyes from dust and other minute particles that may enter the eyes and may alter the driver’s vision while driving that may lead to accidents; as for helmets, during road accidents, drivers, as well as, the riders, will be able to protect their heads from fatal injuries that may cause unexpected death.
And when it comes to high quality motorcycle helmets and other protective gears, Spyder is one of the brands that are on top of the list. Since Spyder is committed in providing maximum protection to its target customers, they came up with another product (or service as I may call it) that is sure to maximize their customers’ protection. I am talking about the Spyder Assist Program, which was launched last March 30, 2012 at the Festival Supermall Alabang.
This program, in partnership with one of the leading insurance providers in the country, Standard Insurance, is simply an optional add-on when you buy Spyder helmet. Meaning, if you opt to pay extra P150.00, you will be entitled to avail of the following perks within a year:
1. Personal Life Insurance, covering loss of life or disablement of up to P 100,000
2. Medical reimbursement of up to Php 5,000 for accident related injuries, including motor-related accidents.
3. Crash replacement policy for damaged helmets during major accidents resulting in damage to the helmets.
Please take note that this insurance is not yet renewable as of the moment. If you have more question about the Spyder Assist Program just visit their site www.teamspyder.com/spyderassist or just simplycall their hotline at 02-8451111.
In addition, Spyder also hosted the Spyder Charge Your Summer 2012 at the said mall where Spyder featured their high quality products with a twist!
A series of activities were held during the week-long celebration (March 26 – April 1, 2012), which included an hourly raffle and some trivia games to make it more interesting. Aside from this, interested participants and mall-goers where introduced to cycling, running and motorcycling clinics.
Winners of Spyder-Charge Your Summer Blogging Contest were also awarded with cash prizes and premium items from Spyder and sponsors. Top blogs were featured on the Team Spyder website, with the grand winner winning P50,000 cash prize and an all-expenses paid beach vacation for two courtesy of Spyder.
Spyder-Charge Your Summer is an event of Spyder Helmets and Optics and sponsored by Skechers Go run, No Fear, Gatorade, Sun Cellular, Kawasaki, All Terra Cyclery, and supported by Total Fitness, Multisport, One Sport, Inside Racing, and Weekend Warrior Magazines, takbo.ph, swimbikerun.ph, motorcyclephilippines.com, clickthecity.com, and juice.ph.
The event was indeed successful and that many benefited from the activities. I can say that it was a win-win situation, both for Spyder and the consumers.
