Much work has gone in over recent months to design and produce a new high quality kit for us all to enjoy. We’re now at the point where you can try on samples for size, see the quality and place you order for your new kit.
Remember, the Club is subsidising this initial jersey purchase to the amount of £25 per Member!!! (Subject to you being a paid up Member prior to 28th March 2015) so there’s no excuse not to get your new club jersey. This is a one time offer, so any orders placed after this initial order will not qualify for the subsidy.
Here’s what will happen over the next couple of weeks:
- Samples of kit will be available at Madgetts Cycles from Monday 16th March. Mick has a fitting room for you to try kit on and find you size.
- For those that can’t make it over to Madgetts Cycles, a fitting evening has been arranged for Thursday 26th March from 7pm at Roydon Village Hall. Geoff will be there to answer any questions that you may have regarding the kit.
- As soon as you have determined your sizes, you will be able to place an order for whatever you wish to purchase in this initial phase. This can be done by clicking this link to fill out an online form (this is a temporary measure for us while we put together the initial bulk order but hopefully will do for now).
- All orders using the above link need to be placed by 23.59 on 28th March 2015 to qualify for the subsidy.
A couple of points we’d ask you to adhere in order that we all get the best out of the next two weeks:
- Please refrain from taking items away from Madgetts Cycles to try on at home.
- In the interests of hygiene, please wear some form of underwear when trying on shorts….we all have to try on the same shorts!!!
At this stage, you need not pay any monies, you will be notified in advance when you are required to make any payments. Please ensure that you remember what you’ve ordered and the cost so as to avoid any surprises when you are required to pay.
Looking to the future, there will soon be an on-line order form direct to the supplier so that you can order one off items throughout the year. We will also be organising another fitting period later in the year.
LycraFit Jersey (race fitted jersey)
This jersey uses technical lycra for the front and back panels, with lycra mesh for the shoulder panels for improved breathability. The jersey is designed to be skintight, so you get no flapping when you are riding, but by using technical lycra blended with perforated lycra, the garment can still be breathe, leaving the rider comfortable even when the heat is on, through its superior wicking qualities.
Biofit Jersey (standard fit jersey)
Materials: Bio-Cerâmica™ / lycra mesh side panels. Professional race custom cycling jersey using Bio-Cerâmica, a fabric made from a combination of mineral and ceramic oxides that emit far infra-red light (FIR). FIR penetrates deep into muscles, to promote blood flow, which means more oxygen can be delivered to them to increase their recovery rate. Made with our new Biofit design, which incorporates lycra mesh sidepanels to give a better fit and follow the body contours – the jersey is designed to fit perfectly when you are in the riding position, with your arms stretched forward. Also incorporates a silicone body gripper to stop the jersey riding up and is available in male and female versions.
Materials: Minerva breathable membrane technology / brushed lycra side panels. Cutting edge fabric technology: lightweight, windproof, water-resistant and breathable. A fantastic all-weather jacket that will also help keep you warm. This is a great jacket or gilet to wear when you know it is going to be cold and/or wet. For slightly more pleasant weather you may wish to consider our Training Jacket and if the weather is going to get really nasty, then try the Drystorm Jacket. Our custom cycling jackets incorporate our new Biofit system, which works by relaxing the fabric across the shoulders when you are in the riding positions (with your arms forward), to maximize your comfort on the bike. Then we use brushed (insulated) lycra side panels to give a comfortable fit across the belly and reduce any flapping to an absolute minimum. These side panels also help contribute further to the breathability of the jacket.
Rain jacket / Gilet
Materials: Waterproof breathable membrane. An ultra-lightweight jacket, with a breathable, waterproof and windproof membrane which is stretchy to give a great fit and to prevent flapping. It will easily stuff into a back pocket of your jersey when the sun comes out or when you are going up a mountain rather than down it. This is our most popular jacket/gilet and most commonly used in gilet form – every rider in a club needs to have a gilet like this one in their wardrobe, particularly if you are riding in the big mountains or where the weather is unpredictable.
Training Jacket / Gilet
Material: Brushed microfibre / minerva membrane. Contour fitted jacket, featuring lightweight microfibre back and arms and a wind-resistant, breathable chest protector. Lightweight, warm and a totally breathable jacket, ideal for training rides with a chill in the air. This jacket incorporates the Carvalho Custom Biofit system, which keeps the fabric relaxed across your shoulders when you are in the riding position as well as using lycra side panels to improve the fit across the chest and belly. If you think the weather might be turning less attractive, then you could consider our Minerva jacket, which is completely waterproof, but still breathable.
Drystorm Jacket / Gilet
Materials: DryStorm / brushed lycra side panels. Waterproof, windproof, breathable, insulated and lightweight. When the temperature begins to drop, you will have no excuse to stop riding. Optional lycra side panels to improve the fit and give greater breathability – using the lycra side panels will make the jacket more breathable and improve the fit across the chest and belly, but you will sacrifice some insulation. Our custom Drystorm jacket incorporates the Carvalho Custom Biofit system, which relaxes the fit across the shoulders when you are in the riding system (with your arms in front of you and your torso bent forward). As with all our jackets, this jacket is available in a female cut. If the weather is not quite so cold and Winter is coming to an end, then you may wish to consider our Minerva jacket, which is not so insulated.
Bib Shorts U-Panel
Materials: Lycra / carbon-mesh chamois. Pro shorts made from soft but ultra hard wearing form hugging lycra with slicone leg-grippers and a mesh Lycra bib for a superb fit. The carbon mesh chamois uses cutting edge contoured compression technology to give extremely high comfort levels, particularly for long rides. Ultra soft high density fibre mesh with anti-bacterial action, a microfibre cover to wick sweat away and carbon threads to take the heat away from hotspots for the ultimate in riding comfort. Silicone leg grippers. Also available in non bib version.
Bib Shorts EVO Pro (able to specify silicone or lycra leg grippers)
Materials: Power Lycra / carbon mesh chamois. Pro quality bib shorts made from soft but ultra hard wearing compression Power Lycra with lycra leg-grippers (silicone is optional) and a mesh lycra bib for a superb fit. The carbon mesh chamois uses cutting edge contoured compression technology to give extremely high comfort levels, particularly for long rides. Ultra soft high density fibre mesh with anti-bacterial action, a microfibre cover to wick sweat away and carbon threads to take the heat away from hotspots for the ultimate in riding comfort. Available in female version, with a more waisted shape and female specific chamois. Our shorts are cut to fit correctly when you are in the riding position, so when trying them on, you will find that the fit only works correctly when you have your torso bent forwards as when riding your bike.
