Los Angeles, CA (October 21, 2021) – X2 Performance and AB ONE announced today that X2’s line of clean, healthy energy drinks will be distributed through the AB ONE network, beginning in Los Angeles.  As part of this initial roll-out, X2 is now available to thousands of retailers in the Central LA, Riverside/Pomona and Beach Cities regions of Southern California, including select 7-11, ampm, Circle K and Anabi Oil locations.   With this new partnership, X2 Performance will further their presence in the highly sought after Southern California market, expanding its current reach beyond CVS and Subway to now include the Convenience and Supermarket channels.
