California-based Evolv Sports inked a two-year sponsorship deal with USA Climbing and will continue to be the Official Climbing Shoe of USA Climbing.
Evolv first sponsored USA Climbing in 2011. “We have been long term partners and are excited to continue to be a part of the future of our sport,” said Brian Chung, CEO and founder of Evolv.
“The sport of climbing is at a pivotal point with the Olympics in 2020. It’s only logical that the top U.S. climbing shoe company would continue to support USA Climbing for the foreseeable future,” said Matthew Hulet, brand manager, Evolv.
Evolv is also launching a limited-edition Kai Lightner Signature – USA Climbing Shaman. A newly designed colorway featuring the USA Climbing colors and logo was designed with Kai Lightner, one of the top U.S. competitors in both youth and adult competitions and an Olympic hopeful. A portion of the proceeds will go to USA Climbing to help prepare training programs for the Olympics.
