National partnership with cycle republic
We have bolstered our UK distribution base with a partnership agreement with Cycle Republic.
The agreement sees Cycle Republic offer customers the full range of our bikes across their growing nationwide retail network.
“When determining our ongoing strategy for the UK market, we decided that a partnership with a strong national chain was imperative to achieving our goals,’ said Damian Hackett, our UK and Ireland Country Manager. ‘You only have to look at Cycle Republic’s Google reviews to see how highly they are regarded by their customers, and that made a big impact on our decision.”
Cycle Republic Managing Director Peter Kimberley commented: “We are delighted to have partnered with Orbea, a fantastic brand steeped in history that produces some of the worlds’ finest bikes. The team at Orbea have developed an incredible range for 2019 and really pushed the boundaries. We will stock a comprehensive range online and all our shops will have nearly twenty bikes in each shop including Road, MTB, Hybrid, Women’s & Kids bikes, plus the innovative Orbea Gain ebike which I am sure our customers will find really exciting.”
“Orbea is growing well in every category - with road, mtb and ebike sales all contributing very positively to our performance figures,” says Hackett. “Cycle Republic represents a significant strengthening of our national distribution network, and their business plan and trajectory is very reassuring to us.”
