Bike Europe is reporting today that Campagnolo has halted production of its sportswear in order to focus on the core components business.

Campagnolo Sportwear Benelux had reportedly been in discussion with the manufacturer to purchase the clothing arm in part, or in full, though Campagnolo decided not to sell or license the brand name.

“We have been discussing the complete or partial acquisition of Campagnolo Sportswear Srl or to obtain a license for the Benelux”, said Pascal Arts of Campagnolo Sportswear Benelux. “On August 4 Valentino Campagnolo decided not to sell the company or license the brand name.”
