Raleigh has revealed it has snapped up exclusive distribution of Vaude Cycle luggage, clothing and accessories in the UK and Ireland.
The brands share similar sustainable product and packaging aims and the signing will bolster Raleigh UK’s strategy to become “the ultimate one stop shop for parts and accessories”.
Many of the luggage and accessories are available now on the Raleigh B2B with more to follow.
“We are constantly looking at new ways to offer support and value to the IBD network here in the UK, making changes such as Saturday delivery reinforces our promise to support our IBD partners with industry leading service and logistics,” said Raleigh UK MD Pippa Wibberley.
“Our focus is to be a one stop shop for parts and accessories and to keep driving forward with the best brands, availability and service levels giving our partners the tools necessary to deliver a first-class experience to the consumer.”
Vaude has been producing bike sports luggage, clothing and accessories since 1992. Vaude aims for high standards, a partnership between nature and people as well as striving for sustainability. The range includes many types of cycle luggage, back packs and accessories as well as the clothing and shoes range which will follow later this year.
The new exclusive distributor said: “The team at Raleigh is excited to be working with the Vaude brand adopting a forward-thinking attitude to products and the environment.”
