The Canadian clothing and helmet company is going dealer direct in the UK, via just one dealer: Evans Cycles

43 bike stores to stock Louis Garneau

Evans Cycles is to be the exclusive UK distributor and retailer of Louis Garneau cycle clothing, helmets, shoes, luggage, eyewear and other accessories.

"Louis Garneau really is a one-stop-shop for all your cycling needs," said Bruno-Luc Gauthier, International Sales Manager for the Canadian company.

Evans Cycles has 43 stores in the UK. These will be first stocking the Louis Garneau triathlon products, with the full range stocked by Autumn.

Gauthier said: “Louis Garneau has been focused on developing the European market. The United Kingdom is strategic in this process due to its economy and similarity of the IBD retail structure to that of North America. Evans Cycles was the ideal candidate with retail coverage throughout the country, ecommerce and mail order sales, and a strong online presence."
