This year also saw Rudy Project release a new logo, signaling a renewed investment into technology and product development, and winning many prestigious awards for our helmets and sunglasses.
Denver CO – Rudy Project North America, exclusive distributors of Italian-made endurance sports gear, released the 2017 Annual Recap last week, celebrating a year of successful product launches, groundbreaking news and achievements from world class athletes. Highlights from the year include Rudy Project’s seventh year winning the #1 Most Worn Helmet at Kona, and ranking as the #1 helmet brand from a USA Triathlon member survey with over 14,000 respondents. This year also saw Rudy Project release a new logo, signaling a renewed investment into technology and product development, and winning many prestigious awards for our helmets and sunglasses.
“It’s been a killer year for Rudy Project,” said Paul Craig, President and Co-Founder of Rudy Project North America. “Our athletes have had a fantastic year, from watching the legendary Alberto Contador race in our eyewear in the Tour de France to seeing Canadian speed skater Ted Jan Bloemen set a world record, to Heather Jackson and Andy Potts being the first Americans in Kona, we’re proud to be supporting such high level athletes the world over. And we could not be happier to win top awards for our helmets and eyewear and win our 7th in Kona! 2017 was a great year.”
Some of the top read stories from Rudy Project’s blog in 2017 included an August post on the importance of eclipse-specific eyewear, and the wind tunnel test conducted by ProCycling Magazine that rated the Boost 01 road-aero as the fastest available helmet in the road-aero category.
“2018 is looking to be an equally successful year,” said Craig. “We’ll be announcing some new athlete sponsorships, which we’re very excited about, plus we’ve got some amazing product launches lined up for 2018 which will delight mountain bikers, skiers, cyclists and triathletes alike. No spoilers!”
