London-based high-performance technical sports outfitter, Crewroom, has joined forces with JL Racing to become the official technical kit supplier for The BNY Mellon Boat Race and The Newton Women's Boat Race
Crewroom, the UK distributor of JL Racing, is renowned for innovative performance products and has a proven track record in delivering bespoke rowing kit to many prestigious teams including GB Rowing and Leander Club.
As official technical kit supplier, Crewroom and JL Racing has provided both the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Men and Womens Clubs with branded technical kit, including the Crewroom Vapour-X cap made with their own sustainable performance fabric. This ultra light-weight cap has a longer peak to protect the eyes with the underside of the peak dark to reduce light reflection. Other technical features include reflective piping to improve visibility, contrast mesh panels and an adjustable strap to ensure the perfect fit.
Crewroom and JL work closely with athletes to ensure the technical innovation is the very best it can be at the highest level in the sport.
“While we produce technical kit for endurance athletes across a wide range of sports, rowing is our heritage and we are passionate about the sport. To be an integral part of this historic event is something all of us at Crewroom are very proud of. As a British company, we recognise the history and tradition associated with the Boat Races and we’re excited about our involvement.”
