And it was also a year of “cinema” for Inverse: the brand was selected to dress, with its cycling and triathlon clothes, the popular actor Dani Rovira as the protagonist of “100 meters. Giving up is not an option.” A film with a great success and that today continues to be a benchmark as a story of overcoming.

In addition to dressing its protagonist, some of the extras also wore Inverse’s cycling and triathlon clothing.
