As of this year, Samsonite also supports the Women and Devo teams with high-quality luggage and backpacks.
Soudal Quick-Step will also count this season on the top-quality luggage of Samsonite, providing the best possible travel experience for both riders and staff. Next to the Men’s Team, also AG Insurance – Soudal Quick-Step and Soudal Quick-Step Devo Team will be relying on the excellent Samsonite Proxis collection. This high-performance range of suitcases offer remarkable lightness and strength, combined with an outstanding design. Making it extra personal for each team member, the name of the rider or staff member is engraved with a laser at the back of the suitcase, while a leather personalized tag with their initials is also integrated.
Samsonite is also committed to the climate, as is the team with its #ItStartsWithUs sustainability campaign. Samsonite WeCare service offers first-class assistance and benefits during and after the warranty period that includes the recycling and repurposing of used Proxis suitcases once they reach the end of their life. Next to the stylish luggage, riders and staff are also traveling effortlessly with the new Ecodiver backpack. This collection combines practicality with a stylish design and was developed with special attention to security and comfort, with recycled materials. The water-resistant coating makes it the perfect backpack for riders and staff in all-weather circumstances.
Edouard Wattel, VP Digital & Ecommerce of Samsonite, is excited about expanding this partnership further: “We perfectly match with Soudal Quick-Step. We both strive to be the best and we share similar values: performance, innovation and sustainability. Equipped with the Proxis suitcases and Ecodiver backpacks, I have no doubts the riders and staff will be traveling all around the globe to reach their ambitions.”
Patrick Lefevere, CEO of the Soudal Quick-Step Team, is very happy having Samsonite on board for the complete organisation: “This year having also a Women Team and Devo Team, we need a lot more suitcases. I’m very grateful Samsonite agreed on expanding the partnership by giving each team the same quality of suitcases and as well providing us with high quality backpacks. It’s nice to travel in style and in the most comfortable way.”
