In Februari 2018 I came in contact with Rodney of Brakeaway. They are the Dutch distributor for Parentini.
The reason why Rodney contact me was because they saw on instagram that I, as founder of Team Mont Ventiel, was looking for sponsors and they could provide custom team kit of the Parentini brand.
Parentini is an Italian cycling brand that is hand-making technical cycle clothing for over 40 years, when you pull on a Parentini garment you’re fitting yourself out in innovation, passion and style. Nothing less than the very best cycle wear available today.
The spirit of excellence extends to their working methods. A family organisation where every individual is valued, they pride themselves on their harmonious culture and caring working environment. As more and more companies sub-contract to poorer countries around the world in the search of cheap labour, Parentini remains true to its roots, grounded in Tuscany, a region known to devotees as the very heart of cycling.
Together with Rodney we designed the following team kit:
Since March 2018 I am one of the brand ambassador for Parentini in The Netherlands. As a brand ambassador I represent Parentini in a positive light and by doing so help to increase brand awareness and sales. As such I will cycle in Parentini cycling kits as much as possible but not exclusively because no amateur cyclist is tied to one brand. Here are some pictures of my current Parentini cycling outfits, most of them matched with some sockdoping.
