Jean-Christophe Rattel, CEO and founder of EKOI

How long has EKOI been a partner of Lotto Dstny?

“EKOI will start its fourth year as Lotto Soudal’s official eyewear partner. In 2021, the riders wore our helmets for the first time.”

Are the expectations being fulfilled?

“Absolutely. The visibility at the races, but also in the press and on television really impacts the sales of our products.”

Is EKOI also learning something from Lotto Dstny?

“Thanks to the feedback from our riders, we are constantly making progress. The quality of our eyewear is always getting better. For us, the team is also a kind of laboratory, where everything is being tested. Lotto Dstny has especially contributed to the development of our electronic glasses which were presented during the past Tour de France.”

Up till now, what performances or events have brought you the most joy?

“The victories of Caleb Ewan at the Tour de France will remain some exceptional moments for EKOI!”
