Omnium pop-up shop opens in London

Kit from unique brands available to buy at Elephant and Castle store until December 13

We told you about Omnium’s on line store in June. The site is a retailer of high end clothing from niche brands from around the world – kit that you can be pretty sure you won’t see on anyone else at your next sportive or Sunday ride.

Well now Omnium has opened an Omnium x The Cycling Store pop-up shop at The Factory. Located at 120 London Road, SE1 6LF – close to Elephant and Castle tube.

It’s displaying performance clothing from Omnium’s collection of 11 designers, in addition to city and commuting kit from The Cycling Store.

Brands available from Omnium include Angeles Creative from California. We tested one of its jerseys a few months ago and really rated its unique colour scheme and quality lightweight design – although it may not be our first choice for rides at the moment.

Most brands offer both men’s and women’s clothing as well as the various accessories you need to finish off your look and keep comfortable on your ride.

Also on display are a range of bespoke bikes made by Hartley, Quirk, Saffron, Field and Rossin.
