#NEWKITDAY | Glorious.cc - The Cake Trooper Kit

March 23, 2018

Words from C3 Products...

Glorious.cc, the self proclaimed "Pro Continental Cake Eaters" have rolled out their new Cake Trooper cycling kit. Manufactured by Sportful, the unmistakeable style of Matt Stanbury, talented graphic designer and head honcho at Glorious.cc oozes through. (like jam in a Victoria sponge cake :-)

What follows is something of an unveiling of the new kit. Call it a team presentation if you will.

A few words from Matt Stanbury "Riding fast is fun, riding slow is fun, however riding to the cake shop is even more fun! Glorious.cc is a group of riders who are passionate cyclists, who love a good challenge. We're continually pushing our limits - as long as there's a cafe at the end! Glorious.cc was established in 2015 - thanks to thorough research and testing we've found some of the best cake in the world but the search and our quest continues"

"The 2018 Cake Trooper range is next level radness! You can now be a part of the quest for finding the best cake and coffee… Just get out there and ride!' #NoCakeNoGlory

Sportful are the current technical partner to Bahrain-Merida, Bora-Hansgrohe and Trek-Drops. The brand has a rich racing history, multiple world championships, grand tours and one day classics have been won by athletes wearing Sportful apparel.

Whilst the pursuit of making all those who choose to wear Sportful faster, more comfortable and protected against the elements is at the forefront of their priorities - the brand and it's employees have an overlap of goals and aspirations as shared by Glorious.cc

"To have more great days on the bike."

As hopefully some of you will have seen in part 1, we’ve been doing regular Zwift meet-ups for you guys, the G!RO community. A great way to ride socially, with mates without disregarding the incredibly important lockdown measures we are still living under here in the UK. It goes without saying, this offers an incredible tool to ride responsibly and protect the NHS as they admirably negotiate this difficult time. We have been championing the need to ride responsibly since day 1 of the lockdown here in the UK, and our Zwift rides are one of the many ways we are doing this, hopefully boosting morale and helping everyone keep pedalling despite the ongoing situation.
