Team Katusha, a UCI Russian road racing team, have announced a partnership with endurance apparel supplier Zoot Sports. 

Starting from the Giro d’Italia and on,the Californian company will provide the Russian Global Cycling Project with running shoes to be worn outside the race as well as on the podium. All riders and staff of Team Katusha and of the Itera-Katusha Continental Team will wear with pride the Zoot TT Trainer WR.

“A race shoe is primordial for a bike rider, but a non-race shoe is as important,” says Viacheslav Ekimov, General Manager of Team Katusha. “We are happy that a famous international company like Zoot Sports was keen to link its name to our team. In the same way, we are proud to wear Zoot. The brand built its name in the triathlon sport and is gaining more and more popularity in endurance sports. We as Team Katusha will contribute to further build and communicate the brand and its high quality products at the same time.”

“Zoot has created the ultimate, complementary fleet of training shoes,” says Marcus Voss, Sales Manager of Zoot Sports in Europe. “Lighter, faster and cooler are our key goals. Since the foundation of our company in 1983 in Kona, Hawaii, we have always looked for product solutions for multisport athletes. For us it is an honor to see WorldTour Cycling Team Katusha in Zoot.”
