Cycling is a great form of exercise! Today many people cycle to work, for leisure, to raise funds for charity, for environmental concerns, convenience and for just pure enjoyment – and of course, fitness and health. There are many reputable online sites, like JEK Sports, to purchase custom bike jerseys, shorts, bibs, arm and leg warmers, summer and winter jackets from. Cycling kits are available for pro teams, corporate teams, participants in charity rides, or just a bunch of friends who like to bike. Any type of cyclist is catered for.
There are two ways to outfit your team: Full custom cycling apparel or Semi custom cycling apparel. Full custom means the design and manufacture of the jersey, shorts, bibs, jackets, arm & leg warmers etc is from scratch. Whatever you can envisage, can be done. Full custom cycle gear gives you the freedom to express yourself and create a vibrant, impactful, bold cycling jersey or uniform for you and your team. Semi custom means that stock jerseys and other items are available where your logo or team name is dye-sublimated onto the front or back only. Semi custom is great for smaller teams and for quick turnaround.
For custom bike jerseys there are many fabric options to select from. The most popular is the imported Regular fabric. Also available is Pro fabric, as well as the environmentally friendly Bamboo fabric. Regular and Pro fabrics are soft-feel 100% Poly with sweat wicking properties. The Bamboo fabric is a high quality poly/bamboo carbon blend which is super soft and prints extremely well. We use this poly/bamboo carbon blend because of its absorbency and comfort against the skin. We have chosen bamboo over cotton as cotton is one of the most intensely sprayed crops in the world, and cotton pesticides are the greatest crop contributor to volatile organic compounds in the environment. Cotton requires wide spacing to grow, allowing bare soil to oxidize in the sun, releasing carbon into the atmosphere, allowing rain to wash soil and chemicals into stream, and decreasing soil fertility. Cotton fabrics, including those made from organic cotton raw material and labeled “organic,” commonly go through a series of finishing processes involving synthetic resins, amylase enzyme, Kier boiling, detergents and alkaline solutions, and that’s not including bleaches and brighteners used to alter color and caustic soda used in mercerization. Bamboo, on the other hand, takes in five times the volume of greenhouse gasses as an equivalent stand of timber trees and releases 35% more oxygen. It needs no replanting, pesticides or fertilizers, and its roots retain water in the watershed, sustaining riverbanks and reducing water pollution.
