One of the finest long-distance cyclists of his generation, Josh Ibbett is the man behind our Aeron Ultra collection – apparel we began developing together in 2018 to deliver the functionality, durability and comfort required for the most hardcore challenges.
At that point Josh had already won the Transcontinental Race (2015) – the definitive self-supported cycle race across Europe – and delivered a record-breaking success in the Italy Divide. In 2019, he went on to finish sixth in Tour Divide, which traverses the Rocky Mountains from Canada to Mexico.
In 2020, a return to the Divide was off the menu so Josh turned his attention to challenges closer to home. What followed was a mind-blowing victory in a fully self-supported GBDuro, as he rode from Land’s End to John O’Groats inside eight days with no human contact.
Josh’s hunger for an adventure – competitive or otherwise – continues to prove an inspiration for our designers, developers and community, as we seek to create innovative kit that is built to last and engineered to excel in all conditions.
