Queen's Award 2014

NEW Ciclo wins its first award!

Men's Ciclo Jacket Unveiled at the Outdoor Trade Show, the NEW Men’s Ciclo Waterproof Jacket won the 2014 clothing category Novel Award. Entries for the prestigious Novel Awards were assessed by a panel of industry experts – editors, gear testers, retailers - and the winner in each category then decided by a vote.

Just arriving in the shops, the Ciclo is our first Analogy waterproof designed specifically for cyclists. Cycle tourism specialist Ted Liddle, who has been trialling the Ciclo said...

“With built-in cycle-friendly design features, Páramo have produced a close-fitting cycling jacket that I’m confident will become many cyclists’ favourite for days when staying warm, dry and comfortable is important – whether cycling or not.”

Mountain Pro Editor's Choice 2014

Both the Men’s Enduro and Ladies’ Ventura Jackets have received the accolade ‘Editor’s Choice’ in a Winter Hardshells test conducted by Mountain Pro magazine. Editor David Lintern said of the Enduro Jacket “It’s more a waterproof softshell…It’s a purpose built alpine jacket that has pretty much everything I need and nothing more… a bespoke winter mountaineering jacket.”
