It’s that time of year again when the festive decorations go up in shops and Mariah Carey emerges from her hibernation to fill the airways. For the last two years Ciovita have been releasing their annual Christmas Jersey to mark the beginning of the holidays. These limited-edition jerseys have proved a hit with our customers and provide an opportunity for us to embrace the spirit of the season by giving back to the community.
Every bicycle tube has a story to tell. They may have once carried a carbon fiber racer, abused downhill bike or a beloved single speed. The Ciovita Recycled Tube Wallets and Pouches are a way to upcycle these tubes into useful items, while providing employment in the community.
Working under stringent safety conditions we've re-purposed our factory to start producing masks to help curb the spread of COVID-19. Masks are available in Ciovita and custom designs. Available direct from our website in the next couple of days.
With the cycling season on hold and outdoor activities curtailed, the only truly safe place to train is indoors in isolation. But what are the training options available, and what does our clothing line offer indoor cyclists in terms of comfort and performance?
To celebrate International Women's Day we held our annual Women's Day event at our concept store in Woodstock, Cape Town. The event featured a range of fantastic speakers, some awesome partner brands, bubbles and gift bags. We would like to thank all the amazing women who joined us.
A video we put together showing some of our reflective items and how they catch and reflect light on an early morning city ride. Reflective kit is only one part of the visibility puzzle and should be augmented with lights.
To us the rider jerseys we create are more than just performance cycle wear. They are a badge of honour - something that lives on long after riders cross the finish line, irrefutable proof that you were there and a an integral part of something greater.
When it comes to riding in winter the conversation usually focuses on temperature and weather, and while there is a reason these are the focal subjects, as we head into winter we want to focus on another aspect of winter rides - visibility.
