Sportex Gear has been taken on by husband and wife team Del and Vanessa Stanley, and is now based in the market town of Beverley, East Yorkshire, not far from its roots in Harrogate.

Stanley’s connection with the brand goes back to his childhood when he rode in off-road motorcycle events with the founder of Sportex, George Webb. He went on to maintain a close relationship with the brand, working shows, retailing the brand and promoting Sportex Gear by riding the ISDE and the Scottish Six-Days using Sportex clothing.

Said Stanley; “With a long history and knowledge of Sportex, a good understanding of motorcycle clothing and first-hand experience of testing the products, it was an easy choice to make the switch from a safe and employed job, to taking on this new challenge. The process to re-introduce the brand started two years’ ago and, after extensive product development and sourcing of suppliers, the new range has now been placed with several dealers and is doing very well. We’re starting with gloves and currently have seven different models covering winter, summer, sports and off-road. We will introduce new products during the course of the year and will eventually offer a full catalogue of clothing and accessories. We are currently past Sportex stockists and are looking forward to welcoming new dealers to the brand.”
