South Shields, England - Starting this Autumn, cyclists in the UK will be able to purchase rainwear and outdoor gear from Showers Pass in their local specialty retailers. The Oregon-based company opened a UK headquarters in South Shields, a coastal town in Northern England.
Company CEO, Kyle Ranson, said that Showers Pass had seen increasing interest from European cyclists over the past several years, and a growing number of online sales were from that area. Ranson has relocated to South Shields, and his brother, Fraser Ranson, will become Showers Pass UK's managing director.
The UK line of products will include jackets, pants and Crosspoint gloves.
