Walker Brothers Wheels of Newcastle upon Tyne are to partner Ribble Pro Cycling across all disciplines in 2019. Walker Brothers are a specialist UK based manufacturer led by Brian Walker who was one of the country’s top time trialist in the 1990’s. Brian was renowned for his innovative creations, with custom accessories that have pushed the boundaries and gained the edge. For 2019 the team will utilise a brand new unreleased model for training and the WideBoy deep section road wheels for competition. Walker Brothers operate from their workshop and office in Newcastle upon Tyne where many of their products are manufactured from bare carbon cloth using techniques and processes unique only to them.
Brian Walker said of the partnership “Ribble Pro Cycling are a team going places so we couldn’t be happier to be a partner in that journey. As with HUUB-Wattbike we will be working with the team continually to try to improve our products with testing in real world conditions at the highest level. We look forward to 2019 which I am sure will be their most successful to date.”
Ribble Pro Cycling added “Brian is a renowned innovator, and in just a short space of time his wheels have been recognised as not only some of the best but the most aerodynamic on the market. Following on from the success of our use of the Ethereal Disc and Wide Boy wheels in 2018, it seemed an obvious decision to develop this partnership further into partnering with Walker Brothers for all our wheel requirements in 2019. We are looking forward to represent Walker Brothers at the highest level possible this coming season.
