They will be provided with products to review and enjoy, to create unique and original lifestyle content, which will be published on the influencers’ social platforms, primarily Instagram, and across NSR’s social platforms.

The campaign strategy will be deployed, leveraging IconicReach’s proprietary technologies, which enable the automation of most elements of influencer campaigns, including influencer recruitment, outreach, communication, demographic matching, reporting, payments, communication and accountability to performance.

Regional influencer event planning has also been automated recently within the IconicReach platform, making it seamless for brands to enable tangibility with their ambassadors and build additional layers of audience engagement.

Today, there are many NSR Riding retail stores and hundreds of distributors, which sell apparel, as well as, gloves, helmets, shoes, goggles and bags. Customers can also purchase NSR Riding products on the brand’s ecommerce platform, also now on Amazon and Paragon Sports.

The brand was founded and launched by Shin Textile Solutions Co., Ltd., a global clothing enterprise that has been working with world-renowned brands from Europe, North America, and Asia, including, New Balance, Le Coq Sportif, and Dainese.
