Brompton will debut its new range of apparel and accessories at COREbike this weekend.
Created in partnership with British cycle clothing manufacturer Endura, Brompton has produced a range of premium garments, designed to offer "exceptional weather protection, visibility and versatility".
The new range will be showcased to the public for the very first time on the Endura stand at CORE, within a specific Brompton pop-up section. Visitors will be able to see, touch and try on the range.
The range of seven garments consists of the London 3L waterproof jacket, the Barcelona windproof packable jacket, the New York insulated reversible gilet, the Amsterdam performance knit, the London windproof glove, the Barcelona coolmax reflective socks and the New York Merino multitube.
It is due to hit stores in late summer 2019, and has been designed primarily for autumn and winter.
Joel Natale, head of product development at Brompton, said: “The launch of our new clothing range is a big move for Brompton and something we’ve been working on for a while. We knew the demand was there within our customer base, but we wanted to get it right first time and ensure the products we developed were the best they could be.
“Partnering with a great British brand like Endura allows us to tap in to its countless years of experience and advanced expertise. It's been producing quality cycle clothing for 25 years, so it made complete sense for us to utilise this experience by collaborating to develop a range designed specifically for Brompton riders, with their inter-modal needs in mind. We’re extremely proud of what we have created.”
Jim McFarlane, founder and managing director of Endura, said: “Endura and Brompton are British bike industry brands sharing rich histories steeped in invention, engineering and craft. We are also both committed to continuing a tradition of manufacturing on local soil.
“Despite coming from completely different product category backgrounds, we found many parallels in the way that we operate both globally and locally, and a mutual respect for each other’s approach. Brompton has a very clearly defined niche and we collaborated to develop a sharp and focussed offer with the reassurance and flair that Endura can deliver.”
Further information on the new Brompton range of apparel and accessories will be available online in the coming months.
