Headquartered in Dublin and born out of passion for the sport of cycling. Since 2013 when Spin11 started supplying race kit for the Irish national Team and Cycling Ireland. They have developed and tested every garment in the wind tunnel in order to continuously deliver the fastest and most technologically advanced clothing possible.

Maybe you are in pursuit of your personal best at a triathlon or running race, or perhaps like most of us, just out having fun. Regardless of your endeavours Spin11s mission is the same.
Race Director Gerard Campbell commented “one of An Rás Tailteanns most steadfast supporters over the years, Spin11 is assisting us again to get back on the road in 2022 with the same unwavering encouragement since 2019 when Cáirde Rás Tailteann was formed” he added “ they were first out of the gates to express their support for this new group and we are eternally grateful for that confidence and encouragement, in addition to their help with the design and delivery of these wonderful examples of the cutting edge of sports attire that the champions of the 2022 Rás will wear every day”
Maria Connaughton of Spin11 “it was never something that we gave a second thought to back in 2019 when we were made aware of the efforts to put this iconic even back on the road, we were, and still are only too happy to continue our long association with An Rás Tailteann and look forward to seeing the champions of today wearing our jerseys as they continue in their pursuit of becoming the legends of tomorrow” she added “we’re also very excited to have our own Spin11 Chain Reaction team entering the Rás this year”
It would be remiss of us to mention another connection of course. This firm has a direct familial connection with the former winner and champion of An Rás Tailteann, Meath resident, who hails from Cavan and another legend of the Rás that is, Brian Connaughton who won in 1969.
The 67th edition of the race will again travel clockwise around Ireland with stage finishes in Horse and Jockey, Castleisland, Lisdoonvarna, Kilbeggan, before starting the final stage in Kinnegad to the finishing circuit in seaside town of Blackrock, Co. Louth. Riders will cover 756km with 8 categorised climbs which will act as a platform for attacking riders to battle it out for the coveted Rás yellow jersey.
