The Sydney Cycling Club official kit online shop opens for two weeks at a time, then the orders are sent to Champion Systems (ChampSys) to be manufactured. Four weeks later they are posted out to you. Notification of shop openings are in our newsletter and our Facebook group.
It’s important to remember that whilst you can place orders and pay for them, the order isn’t sent to ChampSys until the ordering window closes. You can add, change or delete items from your cart up to the point where you’ve paid, after which it can only be changed by the ChampSys staff. After the order is sent by us you can’t change anything!
Have a good look around the store to get used to how it works, and understand the products. Once you’ve selected a product (eg. jerseys) you’re shown the different types to choose from (eg. Apex, Performance, Tech), and then the options for that type (eg. Men’s race cut, Men’s club cut, Women’s cut). You can click on the picture to display the design template – note that this shows all types of that product, including ones we haven’t chosen to offer yet. (This can be confusing…)
ChampSys has three levels of product – Apex, Performance and Tech. Apex is what the pros wear, Performance is excellent quality but with more affordable construction, and Tech is comparable to the R4R jerseys. Whilst ChampSys makes all three in two different fabrics (‘Pro’ & ‘Summer’), and two different cuts (‘Race’ and ‘Club’), we’ve chosen sensible options to limit the chance of disappointment. For instance, we only offer the Apex jersey in race cut using the ‘pro’ fabric, because the stretchiness doesn’t suit those who look better in a club cut. Our talented designer Niall Durney wants you to look good!
Try before you buy
Due to the different fabrics, your size may differ between types. That’s why it’s highly recommended to try the products on before purchase. You can visit the ChampSys office between 8:30AM to 5:00PM, Monday-Friday, at 602/ 12-14 Ormonde Parade, Hurstville 2220 (near Hurstville Station). Please call first to arrange a time on (02) 8030 7080.
We will also have ordering windows and ‘try-on’ sessions on a regular basis, check our weekly newsletter and Facebook group.
