POC and Ibis Continue Enduro Team Partnership
Park City, UTAH (March 22, 2017) — Ahead of the first round of the Enduro World Series (EWS) in Rotorua, New Zealand, POC is proud to formally announce its continued partnership with the Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team for the 2017 season.
POC, a leading manufacturer of helmets, eyewear, body armor, apparel and accessories, began its partnership with Ibis in 2016.
“The first season of our partnership was a great success and it’s a pleasure to keep working closely together with Ibis and the Enduro Race Team in 2017,” said Paul Morel POC head of marketing. “We have been really impressed by their dedication to their team riders and how they are continually looking to innovate to improve the rider experience.”
During the 2017 season, Ibis team riders will use the Tectal Race and Coron helmets, Crave sunglasses and Cornea goggles, VPD knee and elbow pads and the new Resistance Pro Enduro jerseys and shorts which feature a specific race cut, advanced fabric and integrated protection.
The Ibis team includes Robin Wallner, who has worked with POC since 2009. “I’ve had a long partnership with POC, which started way back in 2009. Throughout that time what has struck me most is their absolute focus on rider safety and performance,” Wallner said.
The 2017 EWS racing season kicks off on March 26, 2017 in the Southern Hemisphere with Rotorua challenging the riders with some of New Zealand’s most technical singletrack.
