Authentic, Stable and Easy-to-Assemble, Goaliath® GoTek Now Available Exclusively at Dick’s Sporting Goods Locations Nationwide

EVANSVILLE, IN (March 1, 2016) – Goaliath®, America’s leading brand of residential in-ground basketball systems, today announced the launch of GoTek – the next evolution of portable goals to hit the U.S. market.  Currently available exclusively at Dick’s Sporting Goods locations nationwide, Goaliath® GoTek portable basketball hoops provide unparalleled innovation, playability and sleek design aesthetics, delivering the truest rebound performance possible. The company’s first entry into the portable basketball category, and the newest addition to its extensive portfolio of existing residential goals, Goaliath GoTek is engineered to provide advanced stability, portability and Quick Play™ easy assembly so players can begin working on their game in under just 90 minutes. 

Goaliath GoTek was created as a solution to address common design flaws plaguing movable basketball hoops. Using a low profile design and its proprietary Stabili-Frame™ technology, Goaliath GoTek delivers unmatched stability for increased playability and added safety. Goaliath GoTek has large weighted wheels to maximize mobility coupled with its ErgoMove™ wheelbarrow lift and roll capability for simple hoop relocation, and its X-frame steel structure connects directly to the provided support pole for ultimate rigidity.  Additionally, its lightweight wrap-around infinity edge backboard design adds incredible strength, eliminating a need for a full perimeter steel frame, delivering a more optimal rebound performance compared to other leading competitive units.

“We are pleased to announce the official launch of our innovative new GoTek portable basketball hoops,” said David Vogrin, director of marketing for Goaliath®. “Our product development team invested countless hours engineering GoTek to be the solution to the many flaws that exist across the portable basketball goal landscape. I am proud to say that they have accomplished that goal by creating a sleek, aesthetically pleasing portable basketball hoop that is easy to move, safe and replicates the stability of a residential in-ground system. And with its pre-assembled parts and hardware, assembly is a snap so you can get your game on in around 90 minutes compared to the four-plus hours it takes to put together other leading competitive units.”

Goaliath GoTek portable basketball hoops are available in two models: GoTek 50: a 50" infinity edge shatterproof backboard with a standard flex rim (MSRP: $399.99) and GoTek 54: a 54" Infinity Edge shatterproof backboard with a pro-style flex rim (MSRP: $499.99).
