Have coopers ever considered producing cycling tops with motifs of a pale ale or sparkling ale design?

 

 

 

I do a fair bit of recreational cycling and notice that a lot of cycling tops are basically advertising.

Isn't yellow the good colour for cycling, which would make the Best Extra Stout the ideal choice?

 

 

 

BTW - I'll take one too.

 

 

 

Cheers,

I second, or is that third, the suggestion of Coopers Merchandising considering entering the cycling apparel arena. Being relatively new to the sport of MTB (mountain biking) I've noticed that there are heaps of people doing it and of course everyone has a lovely cycling specific shirt (and shorts), so if Coopers could link in with a "name brand" clothing manufacturer...... think about it.

 

 

 

And on the theme of colour specific shirts, my thoughts are as follows:

 

 

 

* Best Extra Stout - Maillot Jaune (Yellow Jersey) - Overall Leader (Truly a leader on cold winter nights)

 

* Pale Ale - Maillot Vert (Green Jersey) - Sprint Leader (The session beer that goes down a treat quickly{responsible drinking} or all afternoon long)

 

* Sparkling Ale - Maillot a Pois Rouges (Polka Dot Jersey) - "King Of The Mountains" (Undisputed flagship of Coopers, equally a King Of The Beer Mountain - Bud who??)

 

* Extra Strong Vintage Ale - Maillot Blanc (White Jersey) - Young Riders Leader (An oxymoron of sorts, as this is not a young beer, but perhaps a leader in the "young" beer to the Coopers stable)

 

* Coopers Beer Label Shirt - Rainbow Jersey - World Champion (needs no description)

 

 

 

Go on, think about it ! Hey why not even consider sponsoring cycling events?

I shudder to think what I would look like in one of those tops.. It would probably be less forgiving than the XXXL Hawaiian :shock: :shock:

 

(yes, my 2nd Hawaiian is also stuffed - shrunk in the wash. I wear it as an open shirt now with my other coopers' tshirt underneath).

 

 

 

It'd be good advertising though, the cycling tops, and you could go to town with designs! I reckon its a good idea.

Obviously this has been in vane - there is heaps of new merchandise, yet dispite Adelaide hosting on of the worlds greatest cycling events, still no cycling tops ........... there would be a GREAT market nect year when Adelaide hosts yet another sensational 'Tour Down Under"

Fritz,

 

I'll make a point of mentioning it to our mechandise company, the General Store manager and Glenn. I must let you know, however, that my suggestions in this area are rarely, if ever, acted upon. :roll:

15 years since first raised and still no Coopers cycling apparel? And not a response from Coopers as to why not? I'm also keen and I'm sure plenty of customers would be

Hi guys, 

Sorry we haven’t responded! Some great ideas here but the manufacture and logistics of cycling gear is just not our area of expertise, and we tend to avoid “specialised” merch as there often isn’t enough demand. However, we will let the merch team know that it has been asked for again.

Keep an eye out for merch deals with your local bottle shop or pub, or you can buy our high-quality apparel online at https://www.diybeer.com/au/beer-gear.html

Coopers have been the sponsor of charity rides in the past such as Ride Like Crazy so there are a few jerseys rolling (like what we did there) around with our logos on 😉

Keep the ideas coming.

Cheers, 

The Coopers DIY Beer Team!
