Q. What is new this year with the uniforms?
A. We have a NEW DESIGN. There isn't a change in colors or sponsors, but the uniform do look different (see photo). There have been changes in the patterns and Sugoi is using a new manufacturer. So you will see some changes in the clothing.
Q. Do I need to buy a new uniform this year?
A. We really, really would like everyone to race in a current race top in 2017 as a minimum requirement. If you wear plain black shorts, then those are not in conflict. If you absolutely cannot purchase a race top, we will ask that you borrow from a team member or borrow from our lender tri top program. Though remember not all sizing will be available in that program.
Q. What should I know about this clothing?
New clothing options include: Running Singlet and Running Short Sleeve Top. Tri clothing is in two lines RS and RSE. The RSE tops and tri suits have the short sleeves and the RS are the tank style. The RSE and RS Tri Shorts have different chamois. There are two lines for bike clothing, the Evolution and the RS. The Evolution will be a bit looser fit then the RS. There are two jacket choices, an Evolution Windblock and a RS Thermal. The Windblock is a lighter weight jacket and the Thermal thicker, colder weather jacket.
Q. How do I know what size to get?
A. Sizing is always challenging. We will have some sample items at Northwest Tri and Bike in the upcoming weeks to try on. We will not have everything that is available. But if you wear a size medium in one style, you would wear a size medium in all styles. See the schedule for the Fit Kit below.

Q. What does it mean “Image to Come RTB” in the online store?
A. Those items are still in pre-production. As soon as the patterns are completed a photo will be inserted. You can still order these items and all of them are set to ship in the first order. You can also see the date that the photo should be added to the store. If you click on the “Image to Come” photo, you can see a written description of the item.
Q. What are my shipping options?
A. You will have two options for shipping- either shipped to NWTB at no additional charge or ship to your home for a flat fee of $10 ($9.13 plus tax). If you want the clothing shipped to your home, please select drop shipping from the shopping list with the clothing. If you have it shipped to NWTB, you will be responsible for pick up in a reasonable amount of time.
Q. Will there be another order?
A. We will do additional orders, but the clothing will take up to up to 6 weeks after that order closes to arrive. So if you have an early season race that you want a uniform for, order that in the first order and then if you would like to order some additional items, there will be a few other opportunities.
