August 21, 2007
TORONTO, Aug. 21 - This morning Reebok and NHL Most Valuable Player, Sidney Crosby, teamed up to reveal the latest Fall 2007 apparel, footwear and hockey equipment under the Rbk SC87 brand name. All items within this collection feature the SC87 shield logo designed to incorporate Crosby's initials and jersey number. "It's an honour to have my own logo designed after my initials and jersey number, in the colours of the Pittsburgh Penguins", said Crosby. The launch of this brand offers Sidney Crosby fans a chance to win a trip to see him play in Pittsburg.
During the design process Reebok incorporates input from Sidney Crosby himself.
"We're proud to work with Sidney on bringing fresh and innovative new designs to the Rbk SC87 collection", says Matt O'Toole, President and CEO of Reebok Canada. "We wanted to combine fashion and performance elements inspired by Sidney's lifestyle - from his closet to his gym bag, and bring that to Canadian consumers from coast to coast."
It appears Reebok is focusing on comfort, lifestyle, and top athletic performance through the RBK SC87 clothing, shoes and technically advanced RBK Edge Hockey Uniforms and equipment. In fact, on the ice, Sidney wears Rbk 9k Pump skates and the complete line of Rbk hockey equipment.
"When I'm training, traveling or at home with friends, I need comfortable clothing and shoes that reflect my own personal style and the Rbk SC87 collection has me totally covered," said Crosby, the youngest player and the only teenager ever to win a scoring title in any North American pro sports league. Off the ice Crosby’s favorite item is the Rbk mesh cap he wears just about everywhere.
In Canada the Rbk SC87 line is available only through the Forzani Group Ltd. The Forzani Group Ltd. is Canada's largest national retailer of sporting goods. "We're proud to have been selected as the exclusive retailer in Canada for the Rbk SC87 collection." Says Bill Gregson, President and COO, The Forzani Group Ltd.
