To promote the upcoming release of the live action Gatchaman film in Japan, J Sports has produced Gatchaman cycling apparel in the form of cycling jerseys and bib pants. There are two jerseys available. The first jersey has a frontal design to resemble the bird suit worn by Ken while the back will have pictures of the Science Ninja Team. The 2nd jersey is the Science Ninja Team design which will be covered in a wide variety of Gatchman names and logos.
The bib pants are available in one style that comes with the Gatchaman name covering the G-logo over each leg.
Each piece will retail for roughly 12, 600 yen each ($135 Canadian / $131 US). They come available in sizes from small to extra extra large.
Gatchman is scheduled to open in Japanese theatres on August 24, 2013. The cycling wear will be made available to retail outlets in November.
