Q. What is new this year with uniforms?
A. A LOT! We have moved to a new uniform company (Sugoi) and are pretty excited about the clothing. We have a NEW DESIGN as well. There isn't a change in colors or sponsors, but the uniform will look different (see photos). You can learn more about the Sugoi clothing at their Apparel Technology page. This page will go over the types of chamois, fabrics and fit to expect.
Sugoi has 3 clothing lines- RSE, RS and Evolution. RSE is the most expensive, RS less expensive and Evolution the least expensive. The difference is in the material and you can find more about each material on the items online description or at the Apparel Technology page link above.
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 2016. As far as shorts, if you are wearing team shorts, we would like them also to be the current 2016 uniform. If you wear plain black, 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 rent from our "rent a uni top" program. Though remember not all sizing will be available in that program.
A. Starting on Friday, March 25, you will be able to go to Northwest Tri and Bike and try on items from the Fit Kit (sample clothing). Take a piece of paper to write down what you choose as when you go online, there are several options. Unfortunately we were unable to get all items in the Fit Kit but the items we have plus the size chart should help you select your items. Most items have a Unisex or Female size option. A few items are female or male (bib shorts). Windblock Jacket and Evolution Relaxed Jersey are only Unisex.
Fit Kit available March 25- April 3 at Northwest Tri and Bike Only
A. The Fit Kit (samples of the clothing) will be at Northwest Tri and Bike to try on from March 25- April 3 (Check bike shop hours) Clothing orders can be made anytime using the information below but will be due by Monday, April 4 at 10 PM.Clothing will be shipped to NWTB and be available for pick up in mid-May. If getting to NWTB is hard for you, you will be able to pay for shipping from NWTB to your home (that process and payment will be done after the clothing arrives).
Q. Will there be another order?
A. We will do additional orders, but the clothing will take up to up to 5 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.
