Welcome to Victory Chimp
Victory Chimp creates cycling art, apparel and accessories to make you smile. Based at the foot of the Sperrin Mountains, Northern Ireland, our designs are dreamed up on these wild and beautiful roads and worked out back in the studio.
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.
The Family Chimp
As the brand has grown, so too has the Chimp clan. VC is now a family business operated by Mr & Mrs. Chimp along with three Mini Chimps who already help and inspire to varying degrees. You can find them product testing (stealing caps) or merchandising (stealing Haribo) at our event and race stands.
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.
Banana Positioning Technology™
Integrated into all garments with rear pockets, our patented Banana Positioning Technology™ insures optimally stationed wonder fruit on all rides.
