Evolv Sports in Buena Park, California, announces a two-year sponsorship deal with USA Climbing and will continue to be the “Official Climbing Shoe” of USA Climbing.
Evolv started manufacturing climbing shoes in 2003 and quickly rose to be one of the top selling climbing shoe companies in the world. Evolv first sponsored USA Climbing in 2011. “We have been long term partners and are excited to continue to be a part of the future of our sport,” said Brian Chung CEO and founder of Evolv.
“The sport of climbing is at a pivotal point with the Olympics in 2020. It’s only logical that the top US climbing shoe company would continue to support USA Climbing for the foreseeable future,” said Matthew Hulet the brand manager for Evolv.
To celebrate, Evolv is launching the Limited-Edition Kai Lightner Signature USA Climbing Shaman. A newly designed colorway featuring the USA Climbing colors and logo was designed with Kai Lightner, one of the top US competitors in both youth and adult competitions, and Olympic hopeful. A portion of the proceeds will go to USA Climbing and preparing training programs for the Olympics.
