Our friends at White Industries recently put out the following statement (below) regarding a pricing surcharge due to increased raw materials costs as a result of recently imposed tariffs. At AVT our entire business is built around brands that manufacture in the USA and we're proud to support this.

As a result we at AVT will not be passing on any price increases to you the end consumer... White Industries prices will stay the same for the foreseeable future. We love what White Industries are doing, and consider their products to be not only incredibly well designed and engineered, but also great value for money.

As an added bonus you can also get further discounts on certain White Industries products including CLD & XMR hub pairs, and G30 cranks as part of our CROSSISCOMING August Sale. Shop the entire sale here.

White Industries Statement:

"We wanted to give you guys an update on some changes you will be seeing for hopefully a short period.

TARIFF surcharge

In your recent orders you may have noticed there is a now a line item that says, "TARIFF SURCHARGE: USA COMMODITY INCREASE DUE TO RECENTLY IMPOSED TARIFFS."

The surcharge is due to severe increases in material and bearing costs. Despite using US made aluminum, steel, and titanium, we have still seen an increase of well over 28% in raw material cost alone. For this reason we have had to start attaching a 4% surcharge on all orders. Rather than increasing our prices, the tariff surcharge is listed making it easy for us to adjust or hopefully eliminate this surcharge when/if the tariff situation stabilizes. Thank you for understanding."
