It is the responsibility of the individual club member to choose the correct fit and size of garment. Unfortunately, no returns can be accepted because of incorrect sizing. Comprehensive sizing charts can be downloaded from the web page below:
If you are still unsure, please make a comment on our Facebook page and you will likely find a friendly member willing to let you try his/hers to check you are ordering the correct size.
Champion Systems include within the price quoted any options you choose, only VAT is excluded from the price shown and P&P added at the end. Thus always ensure you "check" the relevant boxes below the garment when ordering on their site, lots of options, pads, zip lengths, longer shorts, club or race cut, size, men, ladies cuts.
CS do Jerseys in Club Cut (a looser fitting style), Race Cut (very snug and trim), and also awomens specific cut. Please refer to the sizing charts and measure your existing fitting garments for reference before ordering.
Tri Tops come up quite short. There is a tick box option for a Long Length top which is 2 inches longer. We recommend you check your size carefully and select this option if in doubt.
Information about the two chamois options (endurance and performance) can be found here:
We would advise the standard (endurance) pad is fine.
Information about all the fabrics used across the full range of our kit can be found here. This is very helpful as there are many versions of items such as jackets which use different fabrics and are suitable for different conditions.
Please ensure you follow the washing instructions in the labels in the garments, also some tips here direct from CS.
‘For washing, just put on a 30 degree wash. In the past if I had any road grime which was oil based I used a little 'vanish', usually in winter. Nevero put gloves or shoe covers which may have velcro on them into a wash with any fleece garments like the tech fleece jacket. It will pluck the fleece and make it look like its pilling’
