Zenkai is proud to have worked with some of North America’s top athletes across a variety of sports, and is looking forward to working with cyclists for the first time in the company’s history.
Over the next year, Zenkai Sports (Zenkai) will provide state of the art training wear for Cycling Canada athletes using their revolutionary clothing technology called Filium®. Athletes will benefit from water repellent yet breathable layers that work with their body not against it, helping to thermoregulate naturally instead of wicking sweat away.
“Zenkai is excited and proud to partner with Cycling Canada. We look forward to working together and providing world-class performance apparel to their world-class athletes.”
– Doug Lynch (CEO & Co-Founder | Zenkai Sports)
“Cycling Canada is proud to outfit our athletes with Zenkai apparel. Through their extensive work in research and development, Zenkai has created products that meet the real needs of our National Team as they prepare to compete on the international stage.”
– Josh Peacock (Events & Partnerships Manager | Cycling Canada)
About Zenkai Apparel
Zenkai was founded in January 2018 in Portland, Oregon, by athletes who saw an opportunity for natural athletic apparel in a marketplace dominated by synthetics. The goal was to create the future of performance apparel derived from natural fabrics, while helping athletes perform better by staying cooler. After raising initial start-up capital in August 2019, the company launched technical performance base layer and training apparel. The ownership group consists of four families who together have a combined 150 years of experience in athletics, 90 years of experience in apparel, a commitment to sustainability to help our Planet Earth, shared passion for sports, and the desire to create natural, performance enhancing apparel for every athlete – recreational, amateur and professional.
Cycling Canada is the governing body for competitive cycling in Canada. With the vision of becoming a leading competitive cycling nation, Cycling Canada manages the High Performance team, hosts national and international events and administers programs to promote and grow cycling across the country.
