The Killer Kit is back. Well, not quite. This would be the Son of the Killer Kit. Designed once again by the über-talented Joe Yule of StageOne Sports, those of you who have eyed (or ordered) the RKP kit in the past may recall that Mr. Yule is the man behind the look of both the Garmin-Barracuda and SpiderTech teams. That RKP gets some of his down time is no small miracle.
Joe suggested that we do a slight evolution of the existing design. Think of our previous efforts as the spring jersey and this new design as the summer jersey. We’ve also got a new all-black pair of bibs so that if you only want a pair of RKP bibs, the blue won’t look silly with your existing collection of jerseys. Which is to say, we will now be offering the jersey and bibs separately.
Panache will be doing the clothing once again. We continue to be impressed with the quality of the clothing overall, but especially impressed with the CyTech pad they use in the bibs; it remains our favorite pad found in custom bibs. You’ll find sizing information in the store.
We expect an early August delivery.
Click on the image to see it in greater detail. It has some pretty stylish touches, if we do say so ourselves (and we do). In addition to the jersey and bibs, we will be offering arm and knee warmers; sorry, no leg warmers. The knee warmers, as you can see, will be black with the kite this time around.
For those who know they are interested, we are offering a 15% discount for pre-orders. You can order what you want of the new kit until Monday at noon and get the discount. Check it out in the store.
We also have some old stock, odds and ends mostly, that we’re blowing out for 40% off.
One other important note: Padraig (who fills all the orders) will be at Bike PressCamp the week of 6/18. Any orders placed after 6/16 will go out the week of 6/25.
