Welcome to 2014 and the noveau-look TEAM BLOTTO kit!
The design and vote monkeys have been working tirelessly over these hot summer days and nights to bring you what is sure to be a well-noticed and highly sought-after outfit for all your training and racing requirements. We have every imaginable accessory / necessity like socks, gloves, hat, wind vest, arm & leg warmers – even booties! Check out the slideshow below for just some of what we have on offer this year. There is no limit to how many people can be this awesome so please distribute far and wide among your circles and get in touch if you’d like the order information. Word on the street is even Mr Robert Pretty will shave his legs in order to get this kit!
2014 has seen a HUGE increase in turnout for the BBRB (Blotto Beach Rd Blast) on Thursday mornings. As always, the start is 0545 rollout from ghost servo on the corner of St Kilda Street & Ormond Esplanade in Elwood. It’s going to be great to see the big Blotto train in this fab new kit!
THE TEAM BLOTTO KIT
We have gone with Champion Systems as we have found their gear comfortable and they come in a variety of cuts, whether you prefer pro, neo-pro or bush-basher. These guys provide the kits for Drapac, Avanti and Lampré Merida so we’re in good company! Please check out their product range, descriptions & pricing here.
If you are located near Port Melbourne you are welcome to come and try on a kit for size, alternatively another good way is take one of your current well fitted kits, lay it on a flat surface and measure the dimensions shown here.
Some personal recommendations:
- get the endurance chamois as the performance one would probably only be good for a short crit!
- take note of the different panels on the different jersey and knick styles, eg the sleeves of the Raglan (pattern extending to the neck line) v Razor Lite (pattern up to shoulders only)
NB: the ordering window closes on FRIDAY JAN 31 so make sure you get in over the next 2 weeks!
The expected delivery date for orders is early/mid March, around 5-6 weeks after the window closes.
Please contact us if you need the ordering information and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Comment to tell us what you think of the new kit!
