The Club partners with three kit suppliers – Castelli for the centralised twice-yearly summer and winter kit bulk orders, Nopinz and Jakroo for individual one-off kit orders at any time. For the most part, members get kit to wear on club rides from Castelli and more specialised (eg racing) kit from Nopinz or Jakroo, depending on preference.
Feedback on the quality of Castelli, Nopinz and Jakroo’s kit continues to be excellent and together they offer almost every type of cycling garment (and a few non-cycling things!) in club colours. Castelli also offer a generous discount from their list prices for members, so ordering club kit from them is a cost effective way of getting kitted out in excellent quality cycling kit.
Dave Smith is the current Clothing Secretary. He will contact all members via Facebook and the Club’s Google Group in advance of an order with Castelli (usually early in the year for the summer order and in late summer for the winter order) so watch out for that. He also holds several of pieces of surplus Castelli kit in stock for immediate purchase by members and a list of what’s currently available is kept updated along with prices here.
Our Nopinz website is available all year round for one-off purchases here.
Our Jakroo website is also available all year round for one-off purchases at here and a discount code is sometimes available for members (contact Dave to see if there’s currently one available). Jakroo also offer a guaranteed fit service that you can use before you buy, so you don’t have to worry about your new kit not fitting correctly. Click here for more details.
Please get in touch with Dave if you have any kit-related questions.
