Victory Chimp creates cycling art, apparel and accessories, dreamed up on the roadside and worked out in the studio.
It’s also the alter-ego of Ryan O’Reilly, a Northern Irish designer, illustrator and bike rider. When not busy at his desk, Ryan would either be scribbling down his own ideas or riding around the country on his bike. When the latter started exerting an overwhelming influence on the former, Victory Chimp was born. One crash and several weeks away from bike and computer later, Ryan had plotted a course to bring together his passions for art, cycling, fashion and the great apes.
Victory Chimp art prints, casual clothing and accessories are designed in Northern Ireland and made in Italy using ethically produced fabrics and papers. Their cycling caps, socks and kit marry the latest Italian fabric technology with Victory Chimp’s unique graphic style to create stylish and durable technical apparel for you to love.
