our story

We’re a group of cyclists, triathletes and runners who are as passionate about the world we live in as the sports we love.

We started this journey six years ago because we wanted sportswear to be better. Better made. Better to wear. Better for the planet.

Presca was to created to offer brilliant clothing for our sports with the minimum impact possible – the kind of kit we would look forward to training and competing in, but that didn’t make us feel guilty for buying and wearing it.
