The item features a unique artwork of the one and only 2021 Ronde van Vlaanderen winner, Kasper Asgreen.
To celebrate our collaboration with Samsonite and the 106th edition of the De Ronde, Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team auctions a one-of-a-kind suitcase to support one of our climate projects. This fully personalized and hand signed collector’s item is the ideal piece to get that special cycling vibe in your living room or company.
Made in Europe, the Samsonite Proxis suitcase offers a remarkable lightness and strength, combined with an outstanding design. To make it extra special, Puncheur – known for the street art during several Belgian Classics – worked together with the team and sprayed Kasper Asgreen’s portrait on the case. Being last year’s Ronde van Vlaanderen winner, this auction will run until Monday 4th April, after the 2022 De Ronde is done and dusted.
The profits are set to go to the team’s #ItStartsWithUs project in the Bretagne region of France, a reforestation project where trees are being planted in collaboration with the CO2logic experts. The team’s last auction of a Tarmac SL7 raised 7500 euros which also went straight to this project. Completely in line with the team’s sustainability commitments, Samsonite also highlights its responsible journey with this suitcase. With Samsonite WeCare service, Samsonite offers first-class assistance and benefits during and after the warranty period that includes the recycling and repurposing of used Proxis suitcases once they reach the end of their life.
Joeri Van Holder, Sr. Digital Marketing Manager at Samsonite, is happy to work together on a sustainable future, offering this unique suitcase for auction: “This project perfectly matches our responsible journey. We both care about our planet and share similar values reducing our carbon footprint. As an active cyclist living in the Flemish Ardennes, I always cross the amazing street arts on the famous hills which brought me to the idea to contact the Puncheur artists. Combining their art with our outstanding case design results in a real collector’s item tributing the winner of the 2021 Ronde van Vlaanderen, Kasper Asgreen. Support the environment and become the owner of this unique Samsonite suitcase!
