How We Started
Founded in 2014, Victory Chimp began life as the creative outlet of Northern Irish designer, illustrator and bike rider, Ryan O'Reilly. When not busy at his desk, Ryan would either be scribbling down his own ideas or riding around the country on his bike. When the latter started exerting an overwhelming influence on the former, Victory Chimp was born. One crash and several weeks away from both bike and computer later, Ryan had plotted a course through the (mostly imagined) intersections of art, cycling, fashion and the great apes.
We work in partnership with the best factories in the business to produce the finest combination of style and performance, delivered at a fair price with the highest level of customer service. This reputation has earned us a valued global community of Chimpeurs. Embrace your inner chimp, ride safe and go ape.
