A year in the making AND Jono Wood is back, with this dazzling new special edition kit for 2022! The sequel to last years G!RO shop kit, featuring all new Jono Wood designed jersey and the bib shorts you know and love from 2021! As ever, expertly made a reality by the legends at Attaquer! Grab this and you'll be ready to stand out from the crowd in the SURREY HILLS this summer.
G!RO is fortunate enough to be on the doorstep of the Surrey Hills which is an certified ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. This rural, and beautiful part of Surrey plays host to many riders throughout the year, meandering through the lanes, with rolling hills as the backdrop. This area also is home to a huge variety of wildlife, including a number of Birds of Prey.
One such species is the beautiful and majestic Red Kite. Once one the verge of extinction, thanks to a number of conservation projects the Red Kite is now very much flourishing in its natural habitat. With its distinctive Wide Tail, they can often be seen soaring in the skies above us as we ride through the Surrey Lanes.
Through our Surrey Hills shop kits, we continue to celebrate this beautiful creature and the Surrey Hills that it calls home. We absolutely love what he has created, and are so pleased to release this to you! This limited kit will be in a very limited run, so be quick to avoid disappointment.
I FIRST GOT INTO CYCLING AFTER A PRETTY SCARY FALL IN SNOWBOARDING RESULTING IN 9 SCREWS IN MY SHOULDER. I NEEDED A FORM OF REHAB THAT WAS MORE BASED ON THE LEGS THAN ARMS AND CYCLING WAS THE OBVIOUS CHOICE.
WHILST LIVING IN KINGSTON I DISCOVERED THE DELIGHTS OF G!RO. IT BECAME A PLACE TO DO A LOOP TO GET A MORNING COFFEE AND THAT SAFE HAVEN AFTER A LONG RIDE IN THE SURREY HILLS OR TO BRIGHTON AND BACK. KNOWING THAT COFFEE AND CAKE WAS ON HAND AT THE TOP OF THE LAST HILL INTO ESHER WAS GREAT TO SPUR YOU ON TO KEEP RIDING
I BOUGHT MY FIRST PAIR OF ATTAQUER SOCKS WHEN THEY FIRST CAME INTO G!RO WAY BACK. COMING FROM A SNOWBOARD BACKGROUND INTO CYCLING I WAS LOOKING FOR A BRAND THAT WAS QUITE UNDER THE RADER. I SAW ATTAQUER AS VERY MUCH THE ‘ANALOG’ OF CYCLING. A BRAND THAT I RODE FOR DURING MY SNOWBOARD YEARS. NOT AFRAID TO TRY SOMETHING WILD BUT STILL KEEP THAT STYLE AND QUALITY. YOU ONLY HAVE TO LOOK AT SOME OF THEIR LTD KITS OVER THE YEARS TO APPRECIATE THAT.
SO IT IS AN ABSOLUTE HONOUR TO DEVISE SOMETHING FOR BOTH JORDAN AT G!RO AND ATTAQUER.
THE IDEA WAS TO GIVE A NOD TO THE RED KITES YOU NOW SEE THRIVING IN THE SURREY HILLS WHILST KEEPING THAT OVERALL ATTAQUER LOOK AND FEEL. SOMETHING RIDERS WOULD BE STOKED TO WEAR.
