Cam lock zip (found on the short sleeve jersey and gilet)
It is important to push the zip slider firmly to the bottom of the retaining box, with the pull toggle pointing up – which is the ‘open’ position. When the toggle is down it is ‘closed’ and locks. If you try to zip the jersey up, whilst the toggle is in the closed position, it can cause the teeth of the zip not to join correctly and it can splay open.
The cam lock, when in the up ‘open’ position can be undone easily with one hand, whilst climbing for example.
When in the down or ‘closed’ position it won’t open.
Washing Care guide to prolong the life of your kit
Always wash your clothing immediately after use.
Where possible, turn the garment inside out and wash fully zipped.
Do not wash with items containing Velcro.
Wash at 30 degrees Celcius (or less).
Use non biological washing powder and don’t use fabric softener.
Line dry, do not tumble dry or place on or near direct heat as this can damage the technical fabrics.
Do not Iron.
Ensure that kit is washed with similar items (nothing heavy or abrasive), or use a net washing bag.
Many of the fabrics are delicate and designed for your comfort and performance. We want to ensure that your clothing lasts as long as possible. There are things that you can do that will prolong the use and keep your garment looking its best for longer.
It may seem obvious but fabrics will wear and deteriorate with both time and use. Sweat, lotions, oils, fabric softeners, biological detergents, antiperspirants and alchohol in perfume and aftershave can damage fabrics, can affect the technical properties of some fabrics and cause the fibres of some fabrics to deteriorate. Chlorine and salt water can also bleach and damage fabrics.
Keep clothing away from Velcro fasteners – including those on gloves, saddle bags and overshoes etc and ensure they are washed separately.
Ensure you have a well fitting saddle, as a poor fitting saddle can be more than uncomfortable – it can also damage your clothing.
Jerseys and jackets are not designed to carry rucksacks, which are also likely to cause abrasion.
Take care not to overfill pockets or carry sharp or heavy objects as they are likely to cause damage to fabric or stitching.
Ensure you are wearing an appropriately sized garment.
