Our new Girona Onyar summer collection celebrates the life of the River Onyar & the fresh colours & good vibes of Spring. The kit is a collaboration with Tactic, a local kit manufaturer with a factory just 2 kms from the centre of Girona.
We wanted to create a kit with soul, inspired by the colours, sounds & history of Girona – this awesome cycling paradise which we are proud to call home. It made total sense to work with Tactic & together we developed the concept & design.
The River Onyar
Let’s take a look at the source. The Riu Onyar has it’s source 34 km south west of Girona, in Brunyola. The river carves a path from Brunyola through the villages of Vilobí d’Onyar , Riudellots de la Selva , Sant Andreu Salou , Campllong , Fornells de la Selva , Quart and finally runs through the centre of Girona where it joins the River Ter.
The Onyar is a river with a tumultuous past & has bought great floods to the region over the centuries. The brightly painted façades of the houses overlooking the Onyar create an image which is quintessestially Girona, bringing joy & good memories to the minds of cyclists across the golbe – this image is our inspiration.
Made in Girona: Tactic
Tactic were the obvious kit partners to create our Girona Onyar collection (check out our Tactic Factory Tour blog to see inside). They are a tight-knit workforce of cyclists who love to test the kit they create. Lots of the Tactic team are regulars at Eat Sleep Cycle too, so if felt good to return the good vibes & work together on the kit. Guillem is the Tactic designer who turned our concept into a cool reality. Daan is our man at Eat Sleep Cycle who selected the fresh new colours for our 2021 Collection.
