CONGRATULATIONS Kalas Sportswear 30th Anniversary
WE CELEBRATE 30 YEARS
This year marks 30 years since Čestmír Kalaš began to build a brand that is recognized at the very top of the world peloton with his indomitable determination. Cycling has always been and remains everything to Čestmír Kalas. At the beginning of the 1990s, when the Tábor cycling team lacked financial support, he made a risky decision. Without any previous experience, he set up a factory to produce cycling clothing, from which some profits ensured the survival of the team. The company has maintained its family tradition to this day. It has over 200 employees and sells to more than 50 countries under the management of the son of Kalas Sportswear co-founder Petra Filipová, Josef Filip, and Mr. Kalas' grandson, Jakub Věncek.
Čestmír Kalas' original intention to start making clothes so that he could support young cycling talents in the early 1990s inspired us to follow up on his dedicated efforts 30 years later. That is why we have decided that on the 30th anniversary of our company, we will donate all sales from our e-shop, which will be made on December 3, 2021, to support youth cycling in the Czech Republic. If you buy any product on our e-shop on Friday, December 3, you will also contribute to the support of young Czech talent.
IrishCycleSport would like to thank Kalas Sportswear & Kalas Ireland for their support over the last 3 years as we look forward to representing this quality clothing brand again in 2022
