HOKA ONE ONE®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), has launched the EVO Time to Fly elite team—a global, multi-discipline team that includes a cross-section of world-class trail and road runners, track athletes and triathletes.

“The EVO Time to Fly team features some of the best international athletes in every discipline of running—road, trail and track,” said Mike McManus, HOKA ONE ONE Global Sports Marketing Manager. “We’ve carefully selected athletes that continually challenge the status quo and proudly represent our brand as ambassadors who inspire others.”

The team features elite HOKA athletes including Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® champion Ludovic Pommeret, Olympic marathoner and ultra-runner Magdalena Boulet, Olympic silver medallist in the 1,500 meters, Leo Manzano, French national champion triathlete Charlotte Morel, champion ultra runner Sage Canaday, Ironman champion Heather Jackson, and record-setting ultra runner Jim Walmsley. The team will be managed by McManus with plans to expand the roster in the near future.

The EVO Time to Fly team will work closely with HOKA’s product development team and the EVO Lab, HOKA’s innovation incubator, to help design and test new running and racing shoes.

In addition to the new global pro team, HOKA also bolstered their European team with 14 new signings and contract extensions for their top-performing existing athletes.

In triathlon, new key members arrive with Emma Pallant (2016 duathlon World champion and 2016 winner of the Ironman Weymouth 70.3 and podiums on Ironman 70.3 Barcelona, Budapest, Hefei, Mallorca and Zell-am-Zee), Manon Genet (2016 French vice-champion triathlon long-distance), Céline Bousrez (triathlete and 2016 French champion of duathlon long-distance), Léa Coninx and Sylvain Rota.

Further to the elite programme, HOKA continues their longstanding support of grassroots talent through their partnerships with TEAM HOKA Annecy (France) and Team Buff HOKA Les Saisies (France), and as the season progresses, further signings are expected at both an elite and grassroots level, as well as exciting announcements to come for Germany.
