Meet the founder:
Johnny Koen

Being a leader in technical sports apparel requires a seamless blend of constant innovation and hard-won experience. This is what sets Velotex apart.

Velotex founder, veteran sports commentator and multiple national cycling champion Johnny Koen knows performance sport.

He has been involved in the business of manufacturing cycling clothing since 1982 and also cycled competitively at a national level for 22 years, 10 of which were spent as a professional.

Upon his retirement from active racing, Johnny maintained a high-profile presence as the national broadcaster’s radio and television presenter for cycling.

As South Africa’s own “Voice of Cycling”, Johnny continues to be in demand as an event MC and knowledgeable sports commentator, covering up to 40 weekend races per year. His sporting presence keeps Velotex in direct contact with customer needs and the latest trends in the technical sports apparel market.
