IMPORTANT NOTICE - March 2013
IMPORTANT NOTICE - March 2013
Standard club kit
These are the prices for our black & red "crackle" club kit. The superseded information down below (from 2006) give some descriptions of the kit but the prices you pay are those given here, subject to any serious currency fluctuations (in fact most stuff seems to be a little cheaper than in 2010). Don't forget that you can "earn" kit vouchers by fulfilling your volunteering duties and renewing your membership on time.
You must wear club kit to score points in the Championship league (although discretion is used where, for example, you've tried to get kit but it hadn't arrived in time, or where you have a charity place which mandates you wear the charity's kit) and members of UKA clubs are supposed to wear club kit anyway (e.g. for the cross-country series).
[Former kit man] John W's particular recommendation is the "duathlon top with pockets" which people find tight enough to be able to swim in, and which you can wear with your own tri-shorts. (But check the rules about sleeves if you intend riding TTs.)
Some people find the tri-suits a little too light-weight for longer events, which is why Neil Catling has negotiated a source of club-logotyped 2XU tri-suits. The 2XU suits, although more expensive, might be a more comfortable investment for people planning to do an Ironman or 70.3 in a tri-suit. (Personally I'd go for separates every time so I can get those shorts off quickly in an emergency!)
Cutting pattern (PDF)
Hoodies are arranged on an occasional batch basis. They are a good weight if a little snug around the neck and pretty good value at £25 each.

May 2011 - 2XU
tri-suits over-printed with club logotype in club colours
Neil Catling has arranged an alternative, higher spec, tri-suit, in addition to our cheaper but more distinctive, much admired, "crackle" tri-suit. The 2XU suits, although expensive, might be a more comfortable investment for people planning to do an Ironman or 70.3 in a tri-suit.
Please refer all enquiries about these 2XU suits to Neil rather than John.
These are for members that would like to have higher quality tri-suits but still be noticed as Ipswich Triathlon Club. These suits will also allow you to get points in our Championship league. (If you feel tempted to print up DIY transfers please contact Charlie Stannett to get the appropriate logotype.)
The following prices are for a new suit and print. All 2XU.
If you already have a black 2XU
tri-suit, the price for print only ( you send Neil your tri-suit) is £48
per suit + P&P.
Placing an order
Please let Neil know if you would like
one, so he can add you to his next order. He will contact you about
payment once he has a order together.
January 2006 kit list - for information only
new tri and cycling kit through Torelli Sport, all based on the black
& red "paint crackle" design shown here - for size options, visit
Sport website [assuming it's still there!]. To see JPEGs of the actual garments see photographs on
right. For a PDF of the cutting pattern - which shows the
"crackle" quite well -
click here (738kb download) but you will need Acrobat reader to see
(Notes above in dark red are based on personal experience & informal chat with supplier Tony of Torelli, who tells me (Charlie) that all our cycle tops & jackets are made with raglan sleeves to accommodate our kit design. The polyester kit I've seen all recommends a low temperature wash. If you have a special size requirement such as a preferred leg length it is worth discussing with the suppliers - but through Heather please - because as long as two items of that size are ordered as part of a batch they seem to be reasonably accommodating.)
