The partners behind Merlin who own the business have a huge pedigree in producing suits for race riders – this experience goes back more than 20 years. One of the Merlin Partners is Brian Sansom who’s role in the business is ‘technical director’. Brian works alongside the design, product and supply chain teams to ensure best production materials and processes are being followed. This includes the unique Merlin system of V1 to V4 that culminates in our 40 point inspection plan. Whilst made to measure for the public does not fall into the production plan for Merlin we are pleased to support our partner Brian Sansom.

The team behind the brand have experience of both race and made to measure and suits have been previously produced for Carl Fogerty, Ray Stringer, Kevin Mitchell, Neil Hodgson, Michael Rutter, Steve Hislop, Phil McCallen and in 2008 the team began to work with double World Champion James Toseland as he entered MotoGP with Tech3.
In 2012 Merlin entered the support of ‘grass roots’ racing with a desire not just to promote our brands through the legends we have been lucky to work with but with the young guys following their dream and in need of support. In co-operation with motorcycle news [MCN] Merlin began to make race suits for a wider group of rider experience and our stable in 2012 included Gary Johnson, Phillip Crowe, Luke Campbell and Harry Hartley.
