Teams and organizations are now able to use interactive design tools to create semi-custom and custom cycling clothing.
The selection of clothing that can be designed includes jerseys (a full range from race fit to club fit for men, women and juniors), bibshorts & tights, jackets & vests, skinsuits, cyclocross specific gear, accessories and more.
The customization options extend far beyond the look of the clothing. As an example, in bibs and shorts, designers can choose from a broad range of summer and winter fabrics, one of seven chamois pads and four leg gripper options. Four jerseys, you can specify a range of fabrics and choose from one of four zipper options.
Products can be printed with Biemme’s paper print process. With this process, your design is printed onto a series of papers. Each paper is for a different color in your design. These papers are then printed onto the fabric one color at a time. This allow’s Biemme to insert 10 times more ink per square inch of fabric than their Digital Print Process. They guarantee their customers that the colors on their garments will not fade for up to 600 washes (approximately 6 to 8 years).
Biemme says that they offer the best quality for the price in the North American market. In addition, they bring a lot of experience to the table, having already been in the custom clothing market since 1978.
Orders can be completed from six to nine weeks from confirmation of the final proof. That may be a little longer than some manufacturers, but you can be assured that your order is getting the utmost attention to quality as all products are designed and manufactured at their facilities in Brogliano, Vicenza, Italy.
Biemme has been the clothing supplier for the AG2R-La Mondiale team, the Rocky Mountain factory team, the Stevens men’s and women’s teams and most recently supplied the jerseys for the Gran Fondo New York event.
There may be some new Bike World News jerseys coming soon. I’m working up a new logo that should make its appearance on the site around the time that Tour de France coverage ramps up, but here’s a preview:
