We decided to buy the tri suits off a different company as we were not happy with the fabric being used and the wait time for the gear was too long meaning we would not have the tri-suits for the early season duathlons next season in January or february.
We are going to use the velotec company who made our last tri-suits. The suits will come in the elite cut shown above. The final design is shown above.
The cost of the suits will be 50 euro including VAT due to a discount offered by velotec.
I will be ordering the suits on Monday as this will mean we will have them just before Christmas or the first week of January.
Check out the men's and women's sizing charts above and let Brian Devitt know on 0876133031 what size suit that you want. You must pay for the suits on order.
The 50 euros and your size can be also be given to Brian at the following times
7:30-7:45pm at the swimming this Friday night.
9:50-10:00am at the all abilities cycle on Saturday morning.
10am at the leisure spin on Sunday morning.
You don't have to do the sessions, you can just turn up at the start to order the suit.
Non club members are welcome to buy the trisuits also.
