Chicken CycleKit appointed UK distributor for Italian clothing brand Alé

Chicken CycleKit has today announced that it’s been appointed UK distributor for Italian clothing brand Alé.

The brand adds a premium clothing option to Chicken CycleKit’s portfolio to sit alongside its many other world brands.

Mike Catlin, commercial director of Chicken CycleKit, said: “Alé is exactly the sort of brand our customers expect us to have available to them, and we will build on the success already achieved so far in the UK.

“Custom clothing will feature prominently, and we want the whole trade to benefit from the easiest design and supply process in the industry.”

Ivan Avati at Alé Clothing said: “We are very pleased to be working alongside Chicken Cyclekit, and are sure that we will have a long and successful relationship, continuing to build upon Alé’s position in both the cycle clothing market and the Custom clothing market.”

Lead designer Lauren Goode at Lauren.Goode@chickencyclekit.co.uk can be contacted to get a custom clothing order designed and arranged from today.

Custom clothing is available to order and discuss from now with the full collection being available at the end of November.
