German brand gets prestigious award for summer range

Storck have won a prestigious iF product design award for their Pro bib shorts and jersey.

We’ve told you a couple of times recently how German bike brand Storck have released a cycle clothing range.

A winter range is now available but Storck have won their gong for the summer kit that we first saw at Eurobike. The two pieces are called the Short Sleeve Jersey Pro and the Bib Man Pro Cycling Shorts.

An iF design award is an important international mark of recognition. They’re given in 16 different categories, all independently assessed, and judged on criteria including design quality, material selection and functionality. Storck won their award in the Leisure and lifestyle category.

“We are really happy to receive this award after many months of putting the collection together with our staff of ex pro riders and Italian designers,” said Markus Storck. “We have chosen a luxurious combination of technical fabrics with the latest seamless technology, plus a high degree of functional with Italian design flair.”
