At the same time, Killer Loop formed the first rider team to represent the brand in sporting competitions.
Once these products were released, Killer Loop decided to expand the brand’s presence out of the USA and into Europe and Japan as 1994 went by.
In 1998, the hard goods and apparel collections were extended so that it included shoes, street wear and skateboards, which are a natural extension of the surfing and snow boarding world.
Looking to increase the reach of the brand, Killer Loop released a video game in 1999 for Sony Playstation and the PC. The game is called Killer Loop of course, and has been very successful marketing tool for the company as it gets the name in front of the same people who might buy its apparel.
In 2001 Killer Loop expanded its product line further into school wear, into sports socks and even perfume licences.

The frames are made of a strong lightweight polyamide and have excellent temperature stability, being able to go down to -40 degrees and up to 80 degrees without being caused too much trouble.
