This is the ideal platform for us to showcase our bike and trail offering to the right target audience. We are confident that this partnership will deliver on-point brand exposure, whilst it is also a great opportunity to showcase and increase awareness of our unique offerings. We look forward to reinforcing our positioning as one of the leading sock brands in South Africa and the world.”
