Hi,

I'm looking to source out new club kit for my triathlon club. Given the diversity of the kit (running, swimming, cycling and casual) I appreciate I may not be able to get it all from one supplier.

I am already considering:

    Newline (try kit)
    FatFace (casual stuff)
    Santini (cycling)
    Foor (although they're based in Oz which may present some problems)
    Lusso (cycling)
    Bodyline
    Base.ie (although they haven't responded to an email so not sure if they exist!)


Please could you recommend some more suppliers.

Thanks.

    Sugoi can supply the lot (they arent the quickest but they do some good stuff)

    Their is also Endura, Louis Garneau and pro vision who can supply much of the stuff . To get everyone to make the garments is expensive as you need to keep making new plates etc etc , so id suggest sticking with one

    All of our club kit is done by Pro Vision. It's good quality stuff.

    Tri London use Louis Garneau. I've got trisuit, shorts, jacket, fleece and it's all pretty good stuff.

    Not sure I agree about the quality Damian. It looks good, but one safety pin in, and the whole thing begins to unwind - in the Trisuit/T-shirt material anyway

    Interesting point ktm. I've only ever used a racebelt with my trisuit (for fear of poking holes in it Shocked) so I'll bow to your experience on this one!

    ooops well done Cathy, forgot about Torelli ....seen lots of their kit and it is very good on a par with Sugoi in my opinion

    Id suggest Endura as a last resort as most tri clubs i spoke to had lots of probs with very late delay and the colours fadin on tri tops etc ..

    Actually, we used Endura with my mtb club (I'm a bit clubbed out!) and it took something like three months for the club kits to arrive (after being told it would be 6 weeks). Then the zips twisted in the wash and the lycra has gone very baggy after a couple of washes. So I'm not too impressed with them.

    However, I'll be making a trip up north to have a look at the Torrelli showroom in Manchester as they seem to have a good range of kit. Plus they do club personalised waterbottles too!

    My cycling club (Addiscombe CC) uses Santini SMS. It's Italian and beautiful. I don't know if they do tri stuff but you could always ask. The english version of their site is at http://www.santinisms.it/nuovahomeeng.html.

    This being an Italian site, the women are all blonde, and seem to spend most of their time with the zipper half undone, whilst not wearing a bra. That's marketing genius for you. Very Happy
