Cycling Fabrics

Our extensive range of performance cycling fabrics offers you the freedom to tailor a jersey to your specific requirement. Choose lightweight for performance, speed and temperature management or honeycomb for a modern technical weave which disperses air via a honeycomb pattern, with honeycomb you can physically see the performance capabilities. Taslon excels at providing warmth and wind protection without sacrificing weight and with a semi matte finish its a perfect base for a modern design. Our spandex provides exceptional stretch and branding opportunities for knicks and bib knicks via trade panels.

The Design Process
Choose from our range of cycling studio designs or have a go at designing your own with our Design Your Own website. You can also supply us with an image or graphic as an example and we can create a design from that.
Choose the shape, fit & style of your cycling garment (we refer to this as the pattern). This details the fit type, shape and construction. We have created a recommended pattern list to make choosing your kit easy. Most of our cycling patterns are available in mens and ladies (with limited youth) sizing. Patterns are referred to by a code and we have sizing specifications for all patterns to ensure you get the perfect fit. We understand the importance of a perfectly tailored kit.
Choose the fabric/s your kit will be made from. We have sourced high quality performance fabric/s, find out more in our recommended fabric range.
We create artwork PDF’s for you outlining your colours and logos with your design scaled to 10%. Have absolute confidence that your uniform will be manufactured as per your artwork, we pride ourselves on accurate artwork. All production artwork files begin with a VL or CS prefix (e.g. VL12345). We also encourage sampling so you can have a fully spec’d sample to touch and feel before bulk production begins. You’ll be amazed how quickly we can deliver your sample.
If you require per garment customisation we have listed a range of fonts for you to choose from. Although not common in cycling, some social clubs like to include naming on jerseys to promote the social aspect. Adding custom names is easy, you’ll need to fill out a names & numbers speadsheet outlining which sizes marry up with their customised names and/or numbers. *There may be additional charges.

Cycling Artwork

We provide a document for you to approve so that you can have peace of mind with your design. Your PDF document will have a VL or CS prefix which identifies whether the garment is sublimated or a traditional cut and sew garment. The four sections are outlined below in more detail.

Visual

The visual is just a guide on how things will appear on the finished garment. It helps to visualise the garment including trims/piping etc. Do not sign off on your design based on the visual page, this page is not to scale and the shape of the garment may not be an accurate representation of the finished garment.

Production Layout

This is the most important page to check to ensure your artwork is as required. Our production layout page is normally at 10% scale with a wireframe showing all sizes in the pattern. Check this page very closely, check that colours are accurate, logos are clear, the correct size and in the correct position. Check that the design looks correct across the full range of sizes.
