Servizio Corse programme has an MOQ of just ten pieces

Saddleback investment in Castelli custom adds significant growth

Saddleback has revealed "signifcant growth" in custom castelli under the management of Servizio Corse Designer Darren Gumm. 

The Servizio Corse programme is available to retailers from as little as ten pieces and is run by Gumm, a long time professional in the bespoke cycling kit territory. Having joined Castelli distributor Saddleback in April, Gumm has nearly ten years in designing bespoke sports gear.

“Castelli have five factories to handle production, which gives exceptional reliability and flexibility,” says Gumm. “There’s no limit on colours or logo placement and the kit is exactly the same as that which is supplied to pro teams like MTN-Qhubeka.

“There is also unparalleled versatility; you can have a different design for each type of garment (most brands transfer the same design across all kit) and you can change the design as frequently as you like between orders at no extra cost – perfect for little tweaks.” 

Darren oversees the whole design process from initial contact with clients to quoting, completing the designs and dealing directly with Castelli’s factories. He can be contacted at
