Leicester, Thursday April 15, 2021, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Velobici has partnered with Factor Bikes to create an exclusive range of performance cycle clothing that embodies the spirit of both brands. 

The Velobici x Factor collection introduces cutting edge fabrics and design elements alongside heritage inspired styling. Each Velobici x Factor Bikes garment is constructed in Leicestershire with uncompromising attention to detail by Velobici’s team of master craftspeople. 

The collection is themed around two colourways - grey and red, both with embroidered logo detailing and a lightweight, high-wicking fabric. The accompanying bib shorts are, of course, black and feature mild compression fit to aid endurance and bioceramic pads for freshness. The collection also includes accessories with a range of off-bike clothing to follow later in the summer. Full details below.

For every sale from the Velobici x Factor collection, we will donate a percentage of the procdeeds to mental health charities around the world. In doing so, we hope to do our bit to raise awareness of this issue.

Please find full product details below. A media kit of images is available through the link below.
