South African P&A brand launches in UK

A US launch of Rav X accessories will take place later this year. The brand has already launched in Australia. It’s an extensive collection: foot pumps to multi-tools; mitts to tyres; locks to chain-breakers.
Publish date:

The UK operation has been set-up by two South African ex-pats, Steve Bowman and Greg Amoils, who will operate via Ambow Ltd.

Bowman was a member of the UK-based Orange MTB race team, 1989-91. He subsequently returned to South Africa, opening a bike shop, which he ran for seven years.

Amoils has a stockbroking background.

Both are in the UK thanks to the instability offered by a life in South African, including currency devaluation which makes running a business in South Africa a riskier than normal activity.

The Rav X range was created five years ago by South African brothers Deon and Anton Retief and is produced in the Far East. Trade terms are 100 percent mark-up, excluding VAT.
