Direct365 Launches an IRONMAN® Collection of Adult and Children’s bicycles in the UK and Ireland

Direct365 and IRONMAN® have teamed up to launch an exclusive range of recreational sports road bikes and lightweight kids sports hybrids under the iconic IRONMAN brand.

The initial range consists of 14 models that are designed to meet the needs of fitness and recreational riders.  The bikes are made of lightweight alloy frames and modern components, and are ideal for a daily workout, a fast commute, or a casual weekend ride.

“The ability to work with Direct365 on a bike that anyone and everyone can ride is a great opportunity to connect not only with our athletes but also their family and friends that enjoy physical activity,” said Nathalie Bishman, Senior Director of Global Licensing for IRONMAN. “The IRONMAN spirit goes beyond race day and this bike launch certainly broadens our appeal across all levels of endurance sports.”

Neal Holdsworth, Managing Director Direct365 commented “This is an exciting opportunity for us, and we are thrilled to partner with IRONMAN to bring these bikes to consumers. Holdsworth continues, “With the success of British cycling over recent years and more people getting into cycling, UK riders are doing more research and looking for more ‘fit for purpose’ bikes. The IRONMAN brand and product positioning are perfect for the leisure road sector and for the lightweight, kids sports hybrid market that’s booming.”

The initial range is available at Halfords, Argos, Amazon UK, Shop Direct, Littlewoods and Bikesdirect365.com.
