Former England Cricketer and head of One Pro Matt Prior said on the deal: “This is an incredibly exciting partnership for us. Performance is at the forefront of any decision we make with regards to the clothing and equipment our riders use.
“Altura have a clear understanding of this and that each of our riders are unique. Having the ability to tailor clothing to their individual requirements will only improve the team as a whole.”
The new One kit is scheduled to be revealed in January, ahead of the team’s first race of the season.
One Pro only made their debut on the British scene in 2014, but will now take the step up to Pro Continental level with a number of major signings in tow, including Steele Von Hoff and Kristian House.
