After wearing Epix Gear Triathlon and Cycling apparel for the last 3 years I thought I would write about my thoughts ...thought on their clothing, unique designs, ease of working with them and so much more!
When I was looking for a clothing sponsor 3 years ago, what stood out about Epix Gear was the uniqueness of their kit designs. So many companies stick to 1 or 2 design options where you just place in X logo. They however have unlimited options when doing the custom clothing.
I started looking at the 2 piece Airflow Tri Top and shorts with their Graffiti design. When I went online to https://www.epixgear.com/xclusive-order-start/ and was able to design it on there. After an easy design process where they got back to me within 24 hours I was sent a design make up...
After signing off on the design that looked amazing I was so excited to really see it in person and try it on! The sizes are true to other kits I have worn in the past but just be sure to check the sizing chart to be sure!
The company told me the turn around time was 4 weeks but I was able to get it within 3 weeks - getting to try on my new race kit that much sooner!
New kit below!
I think besides how amazing the design turned out, the functionality of the side pockets and rear zip pocket is really useful. Carrying gels, salt tabs, or other nutrition can be done with ease. For me, I am blind as a bat without my contact lenses on so I always carry an extra pair with me just in case- the rear zip pocket is perfect for this! The front half zip works well for those hot days as well. And speaking of hot days, the material is breathable and wicks water/sweat away nicely.
Having the choice of colors, logo placement and that the logos are actually in the material and not just pressed on really make this kit as a whole an amazing piece of art. And looking at the fabric, it has great color, a material that will last multiple years, and the logos aren't blurry which can be the case in other poor quality fabrics.
Looking at the shorts, the band around the legs keep them from bunching- plus that can have logo placement! The lower leg pocket is great after using a gel and putting the wrapper in there easily before you can throw it out at the feed zones.
When it comes to comfort and fit, the difference between an average kit and great kit is fabric and chamois pad. This 8 inch pad has stitching that is pliable and it is located in the right position - not too high, not too low.
When it comes with ordering from Epix Gear I would highly recommend them. The process was easy, but if you do have any questions during the ordering process that are great with communication to make sure everything is right for you!
