Spanish producer of helmets and cycling wear to continue supporting the telephone squad after satisfactory joint development of products
After four years of sponsorship and three of cooperation on product development, Catlike and Movistar Team have agreed to extend their collaboration in the future. During this long term, the telephone squad has been the main tester for all improvements by the Spanish brand of cycling wear, including the Mixino helmet, unveiled at the 2013 Vuelta a España and later brought to retail with big success, and the Rapid TT helmet prototype, soon to be released on the market. Both products incorporated technologies and performance inedit in the sport, trying to add potential to a winning team also when it comes to its materials.
“At Catlike, we feel part of the Movistar Team as much as every single individual into the group,” explains Catlike founder Pepe del Ramo. “Continuing our collaboration is a true satisfaction for us, as well as a big challenge. Our spirit of overcoming any barriers and constantly renewing our products is inspired by every rider trying to go further on the road than he’s demanded. I’ve suffered myself with every moment of pain the guys went through, and enjoyed every success they got. I really wish this new term starting becomes as much exciting and motivational as the previous one.”
In turn, the Movistar Team’s road captain Pablo Lastras also showed himself happy about the extension of this collaboration: “Renewing this sponsorship is great news for us as we made huge improvements together during these years. The Catlike helmets used by the team at the moment not only feature the latest advances on its weight and construction, but also feel really comfortable. As well the road race helmet as the TT ones release sweat really well and fit perfectly to our heads, to the point that many times we forget we have our helmet on.”
