Starring Athletes Adam Hopkins and Maddy Balt, New RYU Hype Video Highlights Made in Canada Skateboard Collection and Spirit of the Sport
VANCOUVER, BC, July 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - RYU Apparel Inc. (TSXV: RYU) (OTCQB: RYPPF) (FWB: RYAA) ("RYU" or the "Company"), a creator of award-winning urban athletic apparel, is pleased to announce that while quantities last, consumers can now purchase Hoddies and T-Shirts from its Canada Skateboard Collaboration.
Designed and made in Canada, this limited-edition collection is inspired by the high-performance competition uniforms specially designed by RYU for the Canada Skateboard Team.
Designed in collaboration with some of Canada Skateboard's elite team of athletes itself, the designs are scientifically engineered to focus on 4-way movement, weightlessness, durability, and breathability. Further, this 2-piece collection is constructed to withstand the uniquely physical demands of park and street skateboarding as well as the hot and humid conditions athletes are expected to face in Tokyo.
The print celebrates Canada's exuberant nature. From a distance, it represents a topographic map of a mountain range. A closer look reveals hidden Canadian symbols - a moose, a beaver, and a maple leaf.
"This is why we get up in the morning at RYU! It's been tremendously exciting to push the limits of apparel innovation in designing gear for the Canada Skateboarding team that will be representing our Nation at the Games in Tokyo. Just as exciting, through this limited edition drop, our valued customers can now experience these world-class products for themselves! " Commented Cesare Fazari, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RYU Apparel.
