Justin from Sub 4 sent me samples of their Pro level and Classic level kits for trialing.
First the Pro kit.
The styling is of both the Bib Shorts and Jersey was superb. The Bib Shorts are from their online range you can purchase from their web site. The jersey is a sample from custom design range. Riding with the Sunday group, the word svelte was used, although being an engineer I wasn’t sure what that word meant, so I’ve taken it as a compliment. The chamois on the Bib Shorts were comfortable on the longer rides and no doubt would be great on the longer 6+ hour rides.
And their Classic range, a sample from the Amys Gran Fondo kit
Sub4’s core business is customised technical sportswear. We pride ourselves on an Australian fit & 100% Aussie owned.
We have 2 cycle kit levels, our classic that is a general fit, & our pro which is a race fit. Both sit at different pricepoints, but fit into the same sizing guide.
Our pricing is based on units ordered. We will produce 1 single unit, but charge accordingly. A basic guide is 5 units per style to start, with improved pricing after 20 units per style.
We have templates available so customers can either do their own graphics, or we can do fully in house. We have a Melbourne based designer. From design sign off our production is around 3-4 weeks.
As I mentioned earlier, we have 2 levels of ride kit. The pro kit encompasses our CYTECH chamois & seamless non silicone leg & arm opening fabric. These items are sourced from Italy & constructed in a China factory. We also offer compression bibs (Nylon / spandex) as opposed to other brands offering simply lycra fabric blends. The non-use of silicone means no skin irritations when combined with sweat & heat.
In regard to ordering, we have a Melbourne based SEO team that can also customise online pages for teams & clubs when required. This is something we are going to expand on over the next few months, as our growth to date has really only been via word of mouth.
Classic features: jersey has a full lockable zip at any length. Reflective trim is now standard unless not specified. Coolmax mid – long distance chamois. Mens & womens specific fits.
Pro features: jersey has full lockable zip at any length. Reflective trim is now standard unless not specified. CYTECH Italian mid – long distance chamois. Seamless non silicone arm & leg openings. Italian fabric. Radio comms accessibility. Mens & womens specific fits. Bibs are constructed with full COMPRESSION fabric.
Note also we offer washbags to keep the kit protected from getting damaged.
