Brandnation appointed to Handle UK PR For Cycle, Tri & Run Brand Pearl Izumi

LONDON 14th JUNE 2016: Brandnation’s sport and fitness division has been appointed to handle UK lifestyle PR for Pearl Izumi – the Colorado-based specialist sports brand is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of performance apparel and footwear for cycling, running and triathlon.

Pearl Izumi is aimed at both competitive athletes as well as more style-conscious outdoor/active enthusiasts with a focus on producing high quality equipment. Brandnation’s wide-ranging brief will primarily focus on raising the brand’s profile in targeted general, lifestyle consumer broadcast, press and online media.

In addition to managing Pearl Izumi’s UK press office Brandnation will be working to maximize all current and future sponsorship and ambassador associations including professional triathlete Holly Lawrence and elite women’s cycling outfit, Team WNT.

The Pearl Izumi (meaning ‘fountain of pearls’) brand originated in Tokyo, Japan more than 60 years ago when a father produced Japan’s first bicycle racing apparel for his son, a promising racer. In the years since the brand has led innovations in fabric technologies, garment construction and design to achieve the highest performance and quality available without compromising comfort. Today, Pearl Izumi, based in the USA, outfits some of the world’s top athletes and teams to test, race and further refine its technical, functional, anatomical and lightweight gear engineered to perform perfectly no matter the weather.

Mary Killingworth, Brandnation’s Managing Director says, “Pearl Izumi is a fantastic, dynamic brand with an amazing heritage and real sense of ambition. We are delighted to be working on it to build UK awareness and maximize its credibility and status in its specialist areas.”

Aled Gamble, PR and Communications Manager at Madison says, “We’re really excited to work with the team at Brandnation to help us to increase wider awareness of Pearl Izumi in the UK. For over 60 years the brand has prided itself on leading innovations in fabric technologies for cycling, running and triathlon. We hope that Brandnation will help us to tell that story to the wider UK population, outside of the specialist media that already know the brand well.”
