They seem to be but not as they were.

A quick search reveals that the company was sold by the Trimnells in 2010 to Brant Richards and presumably still owned by him. They are distributed by HotLines but seem to have a limited product range.

Limited to 1 product by the look of it!! Good looking fork though but a hefty price tag.

there was talk a while back about their return to producing finishing kit once again, but only the forks have materialised.

interesting the hotlines page uses the image of the mid school x-lite stem cap though.

Hello Brant, are you still involved with the X-Lite brand at all though?
If so have you any news on whether any new products may be in the pipeline?
