KitBrix have joined forces with Britain's newest professional cycling team BIKE Channel Canyon for the 2017 campaign. Led by Tim Elverson and backed by BIKE Channel, Canyon, Bikesoup and Brother UK, the team will race at UCI Continental level. The British-brand will supply a range of race-day products and dry bags to the UCI Continental outfit, ensuring the riders can concentrate on delivering results on the road. Chris Opie got the team's season off to a flying start with victory in the Perfs Pedal last month, while they have recently returned from a Europe Tour double-header in Holland. But with even bigger challenges on the horizon, including ambitions of racing in the Tour de Yorkshire and Tour of Britain, they are delighted to know their kit is in safe hands.
Robert Aldous, Director of KitBrix, explains: “I am delighted that KitBrix are part of the Bike Channel Canyon team and looking forward to supporting where we are able with our KitBrix range which we hope will save the riders and the support team, time and energy with kit organisation. Tim (Elverson) is bringing a fresh look to approach to engaging partners which we are proud to be a part of."
BIKE Channel Canyon owner, manager and sports director Tim Elverson added: “We are delighted to welcome KitBrix on board. As an exciting, forward-thinking brand, the partnership is a great fit. We are keen to be associated with unique and like-minded companies as we aim to deliver a new model of cycling team, in which we bring fans closer to the action. Behind the scenes, we work extremely hard to ensure the riders can focus purely on their racing. Anything that helps with this, such as KitBrix's packing solutions, has to be good news. It is great to know our kit is in safe hands."
British brand KitBrix is a modular bag system made from military grade materials. The range of bags will help the riders streamline their kit organisation before, during and after races. Constructed from tarpaulin, the bags are designed to resist damage from wind and rain, ensuring the riders’ race equipment stays dry and is ready to use in the most challenging situations. The products have originated from the founder’s military experience as well as exposure to kit organisation within leading professional cycling teams.
