Club Kit - kit man John Moody

For kit orders please contact John Moody at work on 01473-694270 or by sending him a PERSONAL message on Facebook (John is in the FB group as "Belsteadbrook Leisureclub").  You can also try e-mailing kit@ipswich-tri.org

IMPORTANT NOTICE - March 2013
Our former Belgian supplier has ceased manufacture. We have at last found a new supplier and have taken delivery of our first test order of summer bike jerseys.  So please bear with us: although John Moody has limited stocks of some items, there will inevitably be a delay before we can get things working again. In the meantime recently expired kit vouchers (issued in 2010) can be used up until May 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 The superseded information down below (from 2006) give some descriptions of the kit but the prices you pay are those given here, subject to any serious currency fluctuations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!)

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.

2XU tri-suits.

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.)

Prices

The following prices are for a new suit and print. All 2XU.

Comp Tri suit - £122 + P&P
Endurance - £142 + P&P
Elite - £162 + P&P
Project X - £232 + P&P
Compression Tri suit - £162 + P&P

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.
(It
might be possible to apply the print to a non-2XU tri-suit but with an additional set-up cost. Ask.)

If you feel tempted to print up DIY transfers please contact Charlie Stannett to get the appropriate logotype.

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.

He will need to know the following:

Name
Address

January 2006 kit list - for information only

We source new tri and cycling kit through Torelli Sport, all based on the black & red "paint crackle" design shown here - for size options, visit the Torelli 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 it.
Basic cotton tee and sweat-shirts are still in red with white lettering. We have running vests in old as well as new patterns but you should wear the "crackle" style when in competition.

Kit catalogue
Not everything is always in stock so ask John well before any special events "just in case" to allow for manufacturing lead-times

Tri-top male with zip

Tri-top male with zip & pockets [ASK JOHN FOR "DUATHLON" TOP DETAILS]

Tri-top female with zip

Tri-top female with zip & pockets  [ASK JOHN FOR "DUATHLON" TOP DETAILS]

Tri-suit male, tri antibacterial seat pad (pockets can be ordered at extra cost - contact John for details)
(default leg length approx 20cm for size L - yes, I'm only 5'4" and took the L - if you are tall you might want to stick to separates or talk to supplier to discuss.  Not the thickest pad I've seen but I've used this up to Olympic distance with no ill-effect.)

Tri-suit female, elasticated arms and neck, front lining (pockets can be ordered at extra cost - contact John for details)

Tri shorts, unisex, with draw string and antibacterial seat pad
(default leg length approx 13cm for size M. Shorter and longer leg lengths are available for tri shorts - check Torelli website for details)

Junior tri-suit (ring for sizing details)

Cycle Shorts (Short Dynamic)
(I love these - leg length for size M approx 26cm)

Short Sleeve Cycle Top (Airlux)
(100% polyester "teabag" - I've used mine for all my Ironmans - see photos to right)

Long Sleeve Cycle Top (Polylux) (full zip available for extra)
(79% polyester/18% cotton/9% nylon - softer, looser feel than Airlux, doesn't seem to be as robust but I've taken to wearing this for longer rides on warmer days to reduce dehydration and sun burn)

Airtherm Long Sleeve Training Tops
(I'm told same exterior as Airlux short-sleeve garment but with inner fleece-feel finish. Long sleeve, full zip, with three back pockets; suitable for racing on cold days.  Half zip is possible by special request.)

Gilet (Pertex Front, Mesh Back)
(elasticated arm holes - wife Kate stole mine)

Bib Cycle Shorts (HAP Seat Pad)

Bib Tights (Thermo for additional)
(these do NOT have seat pad, which means they are great for wearing layered)

Short Sleeve Skinsuits

Comfort Jacket (Autumn, Spring)
(Thicker and less "give" than the jerseys - that's what cyclists call the cycle tops - inner fleece-feel finish, full zip, long sleeve, three-pocket.)
Thermal Jacket
(I'm told this is 80% water proof, has a silky feel with inner thin felt-feel finish - lighter weight than "comfort" but possibly warmer.  Long raglan sleeve, full zip, three back pockets. Possibly a bit short in the body but supplier Tony seems to swear by these for winter training in the Pennines, and Dave Copland lives in his...)
Technical T Shirt (Short Sleeve)
(very slightly tailored fit - definitely not as baggy around waist as "kit classique" cotton)
Technical T Shirt (Long Sleeve)
(very slightly tailored fit - definitely not as baggy around waist as "kit classique" cotton)

New pattern running vests - please remember that some events bodies require all club competitors to wear club kit.

 

"Kit classique" (ie older style)
Only available if still in stock: prices may be negotiable to shift stuff!

Short sleeve cycle tops
Long sleeve cycle tops
Skin suit
Tri-tops
Running vests - male
Running vests - female

Red cotton T-Shirts
(can't be beaten for that authentic "fade" over time, and the friendliness of the sleeves for wiping sweat from your eyes on hot days...)

Red sweatshirts
(possibly still the best for that apres-race slouch...)

White sweatshirt

Sweatshirt junior with sponsor logo

Black Drill training tops

(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.)
