Victory Chimp creates cycling art, apparel and accessories to make you smile. Based at the foot of the Sperrin Mountains in the North of Ireland, our designs are dreamed up on these wild and beautiful roads and worked out back in the studio. Selling primarily through our website ( we also have a studio outlet at our HQ at the bottom of the Glenshane Pass in Maghera.

How We Started

Founded in 2014, Victory Chimp began life as the creative outlet of Northern Irish designer, illustrator and bike rider, Ryan O’Reilly. When not busy at his desk, Ryan would either be scribbling down his own ideas or riding around the country on his bike. When the latter started exerting an overwhelming influence on the former, Victory Chimp was born. One crash and several weeks away from both bike and computer later, Ryan had plotted a course through the (mostly imagined) intersections of art, cycling, fashion and the great apes.
