(Medina, MN) -- Polaris is suing a snow bike designer for stealing ideas from the business.

The Minnesota-company filed a complaint against Allen Mangum accusing him of theft of intellectual property and trade secrets used in snow bike conversion kits.

The defendant sold his firm to Polaris in 2015 and joined Polaris as an employee and later a contract employee.

Mangum left Polaris in April 2020 and was subject to a non-compete agreement for a year, but is accused of violating it.
