Rudy Project North America and XX2i Optics are Doing Business Under Running and Cycling Enterprises

DENVER, CO – Rudy Project North America, LP (“RPNA”) is proud to announce that it is now doing business under the name, Running and Cycling Enterprises (“RACE”). In addition to Rudy Project branded products, RACE will also distribute XX2i Optics (“XX2i”), affordable eyewear for our times. RPNA and XX2i will still conduct business under their respective names, operating under RACE.

The RACE name is more descriptive of RPNA’s plans to expand its business beyond Rudy Project eyewear, helmets, clothing and accessories and XX2i eyewear. “In the near future, RPNA will be expanding its offerings, and in order to not create confusion with Rudy Project Italy, RPNA is changing its holding name to RACE,” remarked Brad Shapiro, Principal and Co-Founder of RPNA. “RACE will initially distribute Rudy Project products & XX2i Optics,” he added.

RPNA’s business is not affected by this name change. RPNA eyewear, helmets, clothing and accessories will simply be distributed under the RACE name, and still branded under the Rudy Project name. The same case goes for XX2i. “Inspired by the desire to continuously create award-winning, high quality products that meet athletes’ needs, we created RACE,” said Paul Craig, President and Co-Founder of RPNA. “RACE provides a lot of flexibility to expand our product line in the future,” added Craig.

Some minor administrative changes that will be affected are the following: invoices and statements will now reflect the RACE name instead of RPNA or XX2i, when calling RPNA or XX2i, the recorded announcement will state that you have reached Running and Cycling Enterprises, email addresses will have the same names but they will now read @gorace.pro. For those of you who have taken advantage of RPNA’s online services, MyRUDY will soon become MyRACE.

Rudy Project, distributed by RACE, offers unparalleled Italian designs, cutting edge products and technological innovations, unmatched customer service, and proprietary, award winning lens and Rx technologies. RPNA offers a Lifetime Replacement Lens Guarantee and 3 year frame warranty.

XX2i Optics, also distributed by RACE, offers affordable eyewear for our times, 365 days for returns and exchanges, lifetime bumper-to-bumper warranty on all products, adjustable features on all eyewear, including nose pads & temple tips, and athlete-tested products, by some of the world’s top athletes.
