Kit order portal is open!

We all saw how great the new green jerseys look in large numbers at last weekend’s Tour of Margaret River. If you are yet to update now is your last chance this year.

Orders can be placed by following the links here.

The portal will close again on 22 November 2020. There will be no extensions on this order so be quick.

New kit day!

The latest kit order has arrived!

This is the full order (not just the ToMR items) and it will be available at the DOME after the Saturday ride (31 Oct 2020). If you paid for postage at the time of order you can still collect and Mayeur will refund your postage fee.

After Saturday it will be either be available at R&D cycles or posted out as per the option you selected.

Ballam’s Bargain Basement Sale

After Saturday’s ride we will be clearing out some club branded accessories. We’ll have some SPR green socks and SPR branded white gloves.

Socks and gloves will be $11 a pair. No cash or eftpos…we’ll just take your email and invoice you.

First in best dressed.

New Kit Day

A message from Mayeur…

Great news is that the bulk of SPR order #1 has arrived and is sorted and ready to distribute. This includes all of the short sleeve jerseys, bib shorts, base layers, arm warmers and gilets.

Inexplicably, the long sleeve jerseys, jackets & skinsuits decided they’d take a more scenic route to Perth, so they won’t be available until next week.

We regret that our delivery time was compromised, and we appreciate everyone’s patience during this challenging time.

We know that people are keen to get hold of the “new green” so we’re adding a couple of options for collection in an attempt to catch the most people as quickly as possible.

The plan for distribution is as follows:
1. We will bring the orders to Dome on Thursday night from 4:30-6pm.
2. We will bring the orders to Dome on Saturday morning after the regular rides.
After that it will be available to collect from R&D speedshop.

The orders are packaged up in a MAYEUR musette, so you can ride away with them. We hope these are a handy extra for racing & commuting.

For those that prepaid postage, if it is more convenient to collect on Thursday, please let us know ASAP and we can refund your postage, otherwise we will express post them on Thursday.

We sincerely hope you enjoy the new kit and the new look for the club. We’re proud of it, and hope you find it as comfortable as we do.

Kit shop open again!

The club kit shop is now open again, primarily to allow those doing the Tour of Margaret River to purchase any additional kit that they might need.

If you missed out in the first run get in and order now!

A sizing kit is always available to try on at R&D Speedshop – they are open until 6:00pm each weeknight and 4:00pm on the weekends.

Just a quick note: The navy blue samples are slim (jersey) and long (bib) fits, and the black are standard. The white jerseys are the aero fit.

This order will close on 1 September 2020 to allow enough time for kit to arrive pre-ToMR…it’s mid-August already so don’t delay!

Time to order your new club kit!

Things are slowly returning to normal and it’s time to roll out our new club kit…the order portal is open!!

Below are some words from MAYEUR, our new supplier…have a read about the new kit.

The team at MAYEUR is delighted that the club shop is now in a position to open.

We hope members have been able to get down to R&D Speedshop to see the Clubline kit in the flesh, and had the opportunity to try the garments on.

We’ve been proud members of SPR for more than 10 years, and we’ve tried to develop a range of kit that suits the wide spectrum of SPR club members.

One of the main changes you’ll notice is the style and material of the jersey. We’ve tested a huge range of materials, and for Perth conditions, this is the material we prefer. Coupled with a base layer it pulls sweat away from the skin, keeping you cooler for longer. It also conforms nicely to different body shapes, so it won’t flap in the wind, or sag in the wet.

We also feel this material has a superior colour performance. This means less whitening as its stretches, which keeps everyone looking a little sharper.

One question we’ve had a few times is in regards to a women’s fit jersey. The overwhelming feedback we’ve had from our female test riders was that the unisex fit suited them really well, especially with the options for standard or slim body shapes.

We’ve had some really positive feedback on the bibshorts, with people enjoying the standard and long fit shapes. We’ve put a top of the line elastic interface chamois into them, and we trust you’ll find them as comfortable as we do.

We’ve had a few requests from people that have fallen outside the sizing range, so if you find yourself in this position, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us through email or Facebook. Our goal is to make everyone at the club comfortable in the kit they wear – and we’re committed to making sure all SPR members have a size that suits them.

Make sure that you get to R&D Speedshop to try the kit on to ensure that you get the right size for you – they are open until 6:00pm each weeknight and 4:00pm on the weekends.

Just a quick note: The navy blue samples are slim (jersey) and long (bib) fits, and the black are standard. The white jerseys are the aero fit.

The current order will close on 12 July 2020, so get cracking!
