June 29, 2011 (St-Hubert, QC) – MOA Sport from Italy and F3 Distribution are teaming up in Canada to offer both Nalini and Moa Spring 2012 cycling apparel programs. F3 Distribution is proud and honoured to announce that they have inked an exclusive distribution agreement with Moa Sport and will launch both Spring 2012 Nalini and Moa collections at the end of July – two of the most recognized Italian cycling apparel brands.
“The Canadian market has been offered too much of the same in cycling apparel for the past seven years and most dealers will agree that something fresh needed to come around for the 2012 season to bring product differentiation and excitement on their cycling apparel wall.” Nalini is made in Italy and brings over 40 years of experience in design to its innovations and craftsmanship excellence.
Nalini is one of the original and most recognized cycling brands in Europe, producing many Pro Tour team uniforms (HTC Columbia, Euskaltel, Movistar, Astana, La Française des Jeux, etc…) along with a splendid in-line collection.
Considered a sleeping brand in Canada for a long time, Canadian dealers will be pleased to finally see Nalini and Moa partner with F3 Distribution, an experienced company that built and serviced the Pearl Izumi brand for the past nine years. F3 Distribution’s expertise combines passion and an understanding of how to market high quality cycling apparel exclusively through specialty bicycle dealers. At the upcoming EXPOCYCLE Show in September, F3 Distribution will showcase Nalini and MOA, and in the coming month will announce its Canadian sales force.
