Champion System to sponsor LUNA team next year

Published December 4, 2013

BROOKLYN, NY (BRAIN) — Clothing brand Champion System will be the technical apparel sponsor of the LUNA Pro Team for the 2014 season.

“We are thrilled to sponsor one of the longest running and most successful women’s teams,” said Champion System VP Charlie Issendorf. “The Luna team and their ambassadors truly represent today’s female athlete and developing high performance custom technical apparel for women has always been a priority for us. It’s a great partnership for us that will lead to improved garments for all our customers.”

Champion System will supply cycling, running and triathlon gear to the team. The LUNA Pro Team includes athletes who compete in Xterra, cyclocross, mountain biking and triathlon.

“Beyond the obvious benefits of the best fabrics and construction, the deciding factor for us was CS's quick turn around on short-run and championship kits,” said team general manager Dave McLaughlin.

“With the success of our program and the variety of disciplines we compete in, it's important for us to have almost immediate access to national and world cup and, on a good year, world champion's kits, without a long delay. Beyond that the comprehensive selection of styles, as well as Champion System’s willingness to solicit input from the LUNA pros to improve and develop their women's line, is important to a team like ours when competing in disciplines ranging from snowy cyclocross races in eastern Europe, to Xterra races in Hawaii, and everything in between.”
