Three weeks after cycling clothing brand Vulpine announced it was going into administration, the company has revealed that it has been “saved” by a fellow British brand.
“We are happy and relieved to announce that the Vulpine brand has been saved by fellow British urban cycling lovers Mango Bikes,” a post on the Vulpine Facebook page reads. “They’re lovely people and have always admired what Vulpine does, and how we do it.
“All orders, refunds & exchanges will be honoured, and we hope to be back up to speed within days.”
