Wanty-Groupe Gobert announce a new partnership with KALAS Sportswear, Europe’s leading manufacturer and distributor of sports apparel. The two-year deal sees the custom cycle wear experts supplying the team with all their technical cycling kit and casual clothing from January 2016.
Wanty-Groupe Gobert Team Manager Jean-François Bourlart is enthusiastic about the deal:
“Our team is built on the support of well-established family-owned businesses who have a real passion for cycling. That’s one reason why we are so excited to add KALAS Sportswear to our roster, alongside Wanty, Groupe Gobert and CUBE. KALASSportswear share our ambition to grow and we are excited by the possibility to develop new high-performance race wear together."
KALAS Sportswear CEO, Jakub Věncek, is especially looking forward to seeing the Czech brand playing their part in helping the team compete at some of the biggest races in the world:
“This is the biggest team partnership KALAS Sportswear have entered into during our 25 year history. We have searched carefully for the right team and in Wanty-Groupe Gobert we are confident we have found a great fit. In the last 12 months alone we added 4 new products to our PRO range, all of which will be used by the team. We are especially proud of our new PRO Arco bib shorts, which the team will benefit from using. Attached you will find the great new kit design we developed for Wanty-Groupe Gobert and we will continue to make further product enhancements. It’s really a dream come true to see the kit we worked so hard to develop right in the heart of the Spring Classics. Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix are some of the toughest races in the calendar and we are delighted to play our part in the team’s quest for success.”
From KALAS Sportswear the team relationship will be managed by former pro rider Frantisek Rabon (T-Mobile, HTC, OmegaPharma-QuickStep) who now works on product development with the sports apparel brand:
“As someone who has raced at the highest level, I fully understand the demands placed upon pro race kit. Part of my job is to deliver kit to the team that can meet those demands. I already met the riders at a recent team meeting for individual fitting sessions. When the team next meet at their January training camp in Spain I will be there again to ensure all the riders are fully kitted out with our innovative PRO range of race wear in time for the start of the 2016 season.”
