The long wait is finally over !
What do World Champion Rui Costa from Lampre-Merida, O2 Racing, Charter Mason Giant, Search2retain, Drapac and Stay True all have in common ? Their kits are all manufactured by SKCC's kit sponsor Champion Systems !
Add to this list SKCC's club sponsors, Physiohealth, health.com.au & Brighton Skoda.......all of whom have chosen Champion Systems as their preferred kit manufacturer.
After much passionate debate, a survey and a special kit committee, the 2014 SKCC Kit is finally ready for ordering !!!
Thanks to the design work of guru Simon Moody from Simplesime, the design godfather came up with a contemporary refresh that hits the right balance between the much loved current design and a fresh upgrade with a notable difference.
SKCC has chosen from the vast Champion Systems range and are offering a choice of two men's jersey cuts (a club cut and a race cut) and two women's jersey cuts (all cuts with a choice of zipper length), plus two styles of knicks (with a choice of chamois and a choice of leg length).
Childrens sizes are also available in jersey, shorts, bib knicks and skin suits.
Add to this a wind vest, a skin suit, and fleece arm warmers, knee warmers & leg warmers.
Let's not forget the Euro Cycling Cap which is available in black or white.
But that's not all......once our initial offering is in full swing we'll be working on some additional items for the range, including some casual wear.
Be one of the first to secure the new improved kit from world class kit manufacturer Champion Systems. The club's ordering portal is now live, which means you can go to the Champion Systems website and log in and order your apparel using Champion System's online ordering portal – CS Direct (top right hand corner of the CS website).

Choose your cut..........
Men's Club Cut: Most similar to a regular fit business shirt. Larger through the chest and shoulders, larger armholes and sleeves and slightly longer in length. Would suit your larger male athlete or recreational cyclist.
Men's Race Cut: Very similar to a slim fit business shirt. A lot closer fit through the upper body, smaller armholes and shorter in length. This cut is for the slim/lean athlete who is more serious about their performance.
New Women's Specific Cut : The new women's specific Jersey features new paneling more suited to a women's figure. Specifically designed with the female anatomy in mind, designed and cut specifically for women it features a bust dart that continues to help the jersey fit better across the female anatomy. Side panels are shaped and curved to better fit the female form.
Original Women's Cut: This is the original Champion Systems women's cut and is similar to the men's race cut in that the jersey and sleeves are shorter in length. In both women's cut jerseys, we have removed a lot of the elastic from the hem, so it sits a lot better on a woman's body when she is active.

Razor Bib Shorts
These knicks provide an ergonomic cut to hug the athletes formed leg. By sitting the panels in such a fashion we are able to achieve a much more snug fit without sacrificing comfort. This is by far our most popular choice of bib short amongst our racing teams. The Razor bib short features patented silicon injected grippers in the cuff of each leg. These grippers are injected into the fabric to ensure that they do not deteriorate with wear. All lycra used in the construction of the bib short is imported directly from Italy. The Razor bib shorts come standard with flat lock stitching and are available in both men's and women's specific cuts. Our chamois are made in Italy and are a 4-way stretch, antibacterial chamois. All of our bib shorts feature a double layered panel in the rear to avoid any chance of the garment becoming see through after excessive wear and tear. Our chamois are flat lock stitched with an inverted needle to reduce risk of chaffing and irritation on longer rides. The Razor bib short can be ordered in standard or extra length (increases the length of the leg by about 1.5 inches).
Endurance - our most popular chamois - more suited for longer rides.
Performance - best suited for race day knicks and skin suits. The pad is slightly smaller than the Endurance chamois.
