VELOCHAMPION Elevates 2019 Sponsorship to Technical Sponsor for Team NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizane.

UK company Maxgear Limited, owner of the cycling brand VELOCHAMPION has announced a major sponsorship deal with the Italian-Japanese Pro Continental Team NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizane. VELOCHAMPION is continuing its support of the Team as Official Eyewear Sponsor for the 2019 season and elevating this year’s sponsorship to Technical Sponsor adding the 

VELOCHAMPION logo on to the official jersey.

Managing Director Ciaran Dunne said “We are very excited to continue our sponsorship of a Pro-Continental cycling team for a second consecutive year. As we approach the 10th anniversary year of selling our cycling products worldwide, we are proud to be associated with one of the leading Italian Pro Teams. This renewed team sponsorship will help showcase our products at the highest level of the sport and contribute to the development of new products.”

VELOCHAMPION is also launching its new sunglasses model for 2019 – the CYCLONE. These premium sunglasses have been rigorously tested by professional riders who have provided very positive feedback for the product. The VELOCHAMPION Cyclone Sunglasses will be used by every member of Team NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizane in UCI races throughout Europe and beyond. This includes the 2019 Giro d’Italia to which the team has recently been awarded a wildcard entry. VELOCHAMPION wishes the team good luck for the new season.

Nippo Vini Fantini General Manager Francesco Pelosi said “I’ve known the VELOCHAMPION brand for several years and I was always impressed by the quality and style of their products. They’ve really started to make a big impression in Europe especially in Italy and it was great to secure the brand as a Technical Sponsor for the second consecutive year. To have quality technical partners is very important for a PRO team because their impact on riders performances can be crucial. I’m confident that the sponsorship and quality of the VELOCHAMPION products will help the Team to many victories in 2019.” 

Keeping in line with the growing trend of a semi-panoramic field of vision, the frameless Cyclone is both stylish and lightweight, with beneficial features for #RaceReady performance. The CYCLONE features 4 lenses for every weather eventuality, with a quick- change lens system, sweat reduction band to retract perspiration and anti-fogging technology for improved ventilation.
