Australian outfit Attaquer have just dropped their Season 4 cycling collection called “The Attaquer Draft Pick”. Cyclist or not, you’re bound to have seen Attaquer’s products adorning the backs of cyclists across Australia. Be it the Zebra print or the Sons of Anarchy inspired ‘Give Em Hell’, it’s hard not to notice their bold brand. We caught up with Steve and the team to get an insight into the new collection.
The Attaquer Draft Pick collection takes styling inspiration from Vintage American Basketball, Baseball, Gridiron and BMX designs. As you can guess, the main colours for the collection are Red, White and Blue. We’ve used an intricate pin stripe pattern on the “shooting hoops” kit to symbolise the basketball net, and a big Attaquer team logo on the back of the jersey. The baseball inspired “Batter Up” design also has a bold white, traditional vertical pin stripe. The “Go-Long” men’s and women’s Gridiron kits gets a vintage worn-in effect, and a large number 12 on the back of the jersey. This is representative of 2012, the year Attaquer came to life. Rounding out the offer are the classic “BMX Bandits” Kits which Nicole Kidman herself would be proud to wear, featuring simple, but bold horizontal stripes, in two colorways.
Attaquer is built around our bold designs, but the other important element for us has always been that the product needs to be as good as the designs. We want it to stand up to the best in the market, so you aren’t getting something that just looks good, but it delivers performance, all day comfort and durability. We have worked hard with our factory in Italy to delivery the best fits, latest fabric, performance technology, whilst still delivering a balance of comfort and durability.
Attaquer have also “teamed” up with SuVelo Racing this season and are their official sock sponsor (Ride of Die) for their men’s NRS team, something they aim on developing further. It’s great to see Australian’s supporting an innovative local brand – these guys are doing really cool things.
