About this project
As seen on:
We are ripping up the rule book. We are revolutionizing the sportswear industry.
In doing so, we will be taking a brand new approach to creating top-quality sportswear.
Tribesports performance wear will be made to meet the highest quality technical specifications, using premium technical fabrics and cutting-edge construction methods. BUT, despite being the same quality (or better) than the leading sports brands, they will be brought to you at up to 40% cheaper.
At every stage, intricate detail has gone into creating a range focused on performance and versatility. In the gym, on the field, on the trails... wherever you are, it’s designed to look great, feel great and help get you to the top of your game.
A community-powered range of sportswear for active people everywhere.
By supporting the Tribesports Kickstarter campaign, you can make this vision a reality. We will be working with our community, customers and backers to design, spec and spread the word about Tribesports performance wear. From providing the training data that tells us what kit you really need, to color choices, to technical features, to modelling the finished product – you will be at the center of everything we do.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
We would love to have you on board as a backer. To show our gratitude, we will be rewarding each of our Kickstarter backers with products from our very first production run, at one time only prices. You do not want to miss this!
Note to USA backers:
Currently it is only possible to list a pledge price in one currency (GBP). You will see on our pledges that we have also included an approximate USD price. The exact amount that you will be charged will be calculated based on the exchange rate at the date of your pledge. (In general this should work out the same price or lower than the amount stated in the pledge).
- Shipping to backers in the UK and USA will be free. USA backers may automatically have £10 added to their pledge for shipping - please select "In the UK" bottom left of that screen, subtract the £10 from your pledge total so that you are only pledging the amount listed on this page. Equally feel free to leave it in and donate it to the cause!? (Postal addresses will be collected later on, so don't fret - regardless of selecting UK, your products will be shipped to an address of your choosing in the USA.)
- For all countries outside of UK and USA, you will be charged at the GBP price, plus £10 shipping cost.
Following the traditional process layered on by global sports brands you are not just paying for great design, quality fabric and premium manufacturing…
- You’re paying for middlemen
- You’re paying for the bricks and mortar of physical stores
- You’re paying for celebrity endorsement and sponsorship
- You’re paying for TV ad campaigns & billboards…
But it doesn't need to be like this. Times are changing.
THE LAUNCH RANGE
With success in this Kickstarter campaign, we will be launching our 'Performance Range' featuring long sleeve and short sleeve tech tees, super-soft technical half-zip tops, training shorts (for the guys) and athletic capris (for the girls).
UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming success of the campaign we are introducing 4 new product styles and 5 new pledge options (pledges #11 to #15). The new styles include performance Tights & lightweight Singlets for the guys and 2-in-1 shorts & an open-back detail tank for the girls. See update #4 for more details.
INTO THE DETAIL
From the first sketches to the final product, we developed the range with quality, performance and versatility in mind. These detailed design CADs outline some of the key performance features of the products.
FABRIC AND FINISH FEATURES:
All fabric & trim selections have been specifically chosen to keep you looking and feeling great whilst you work out. Moisture wicking fabric, lock-down zip pullers, 360 degree reflectivity, heat transfer size labels, the list goes on. Here's some of the technical detail:
The Tribesports Performance range is designed to sit close to the skin for a streamlined fit. The ergonomic seams follow the contours of your body for a supportive, comfortable finish. Check out the size chart below to find out which size is right for you.
We will take your size and color preferences as applicable to your pledge at the end of the funding period. Here are our international size charts to help you with your selection:
THE NEXT STEPS:
We are currently at final prototype stage on our first range. All styles are quality control checked, sweat tested and ready to run. On reaching our funding goal of £30,000 (~$46,000), your pledges will go directly towards moving the very first Tribesports performance wear range from final prototype stage into production.
