Chicken Cyclekit has secured the distribution rights to Italian firm Nalini’s clothing range.
The deal comes following the manufacturer’s visit to Cycle 2008 in October, where it looked for a new UK partner to handle its Nalini Base, Pro and Bianchi Milano clothing ranges.
"To go to the Nalini factory complex is an exciting experience. The production is Italian through and through. The place exudes passion, the standard of quality is unreproachable and the brand is steeped in cycling history. How fortunate we are to have them on board," said Chicken Cyclekit director Cedric Chicken.
Nalini has been available on and off for some time in the UK. The first delivery of Nalini Base spring and summer clothing arrived at Chicken Cyclekit’s Leighton Buzzard distribution centre toward the end of March.
These items will be closely followed by Nalini Pro garments, due mid-May.
Trade price and stock lists will have arrived with dealers by the time this magazine hits doormats. Within the mailout, dealers are offered a five per cent early order discount. The usual stock availability applies.
A complete customised clothing service is now available, too –details of which are on Chicken’s B2B website and printed in the back of the new CycleKit trade price list. This list updates the various currency surcharges of recent months and will include the autumn to winter Nalini Pro clothing ranges.
The full 2009 garment catalogue, as well as further news and information about available product, can be found at the brand’s website: www.nalini.com.
