About Xtreme
Steve Chapman, Original Robe Designer


Xtreme was born from a profound passion for exceptional outdoor gear, coupled with over three decades of expertise in the sporting and sports clothing industries. Director Steve Chapman, a former Rugby star from Coventry and Birmingham’s Solihull, boasts a remarkable track record of creating apparel for renowned brands and household names around the globe. Notable mentions include Sainsbury’s, Asda, Tesco, Aldi, Joma, Burdda, as well as esteemed clubs like Charlton Athletic FC, Derby County FC, Northampton Saints, Welsh Rugby and British Judo. Steve also played an essential role in crafting England Rugby’s secondary-tier clothing.

The Start
Steve, Lisa and Guy, Founders of Xtreme Robes

This narrative took root amid the challenges of Brexit and the disruptive impact of the pandemic on the industry. Steve and his wife, Lisa, resolved to forge their path by creating an entirely fresh brand. They aimed to bridge the gap in the outdoor and activewear market, offering top-notch, reasonably priced sports clothing. Enter Guy Stanton, a local entrepreneur and close confidant, whose pivotal role in the brand’s inception was solidified over numerous jovial evenings at Warwick’s beloved Ronnie’s Bar.
Harnessing his extensive knowledge and experience, Steve embarked on a new venture, crafting bespoke clothing under the banner of Team Elite UK for diverse clients – clubs, teams, schools, as well as individuals which has led to this thrilling collaboration: Xtreme, an exciting chapter in his journey.

A Word From Our Creator:
Steve XT

“In my distant memories, I recall developing and introducing drying robes, originally tailored for the American market as deck parkas. Our innovative spirit also reached Australia under the moniker of Team Elite Australia, where we introduced swim parkas. Thus, we proudly predate many other branded robes. Our robes epitomise the genuine, adapted originals – a testament to our legacy!” Steve passionately shares.

The transformative journey saw our deck parkas customised for the UK’s temperamental climate, thriving as Team Elite UK. Their resounding success paved the way for a rebranding, and thus, Xtreme was conceived. These products carve a niche in the realm of outdoor and activewear, offering a haven of warmth and comfort to outdoor enthusiasts, regardless of their chosen sport or pursuit, even in the most extreme weather conditions.

A reimagined Xtreme Robe emerged from the crucible of experience, shaped by invaluable customer feedback across myriad sports and lifestyles. The foundations were laid with essential pieces primed for winter, all conceived with a singular objective: to engineer supreme warm, enduring apparel, accessible to all. Steve’s palpable enthusiasm reverberates, “This new venture is nothing short of exhilarating!”

Witnessing the transformative impact of robes has been truly heartening. A diverse spectrum of individuals – from swimmers and team players to school teams, equestrian aficionados, skiers, rowers, farmers, dog walkers, and even dedicated parents cheering from the sidelines – have embraced our robes with open arms. “Our robes unite us all,” Steve muses.
