Our Story

New Kit Day is the creation of Anthony Borba and Eric Chao. We both live and ride San Francisco Bay Area. Anthony has been racing bikes in Northern California for many years and Eric is an avid cyclist who is also an amazing designer.

New Kit Day brings fresh designs together with custom kit ordering to provide high quality kits for less than the other high-end bicycle clothing manufacturers.  The awesome part is that we use the same lycras, chamois and technical fabrics they use.

We make everything here in Northern California! 

Printed in San Jose.  Sewn in Oakland.

Why Kickstarter

We are launching our first collection on Kickstarter with the hopes of growing our business and sharing our passion with riders everywhere. The funds we are raising here will go towards fulfilling this kit order and then to order additional materials for the next collections.

Industry Experience

Together we bring years of experience in custom bike clothing design and production. Anthony has been managing the design and fulfillment of his team's cycling clothing for years. Eric has been designing some of the best looking kits in the peloton.  We have worked with many of the vendors in the industry.  We know the good materials from the bad. 

New Kit Day hand picks the lycras and high-end chamois for our bib shorts and wicking stretch-poly fabrics for our jerseys. The Chamois is fantastic; perfect density and without bulkiness.  It is truly an all-day riding chamois. More info and photos below.

What's Next

We combine these great materials with awesome designs at reasonable prices because we are ordering on a limited edition basis and working directly with the riders. Essentially, we are creating custom order around each design. Since we fulfill each order the riders get awesome, pro-level gear directly without having to pay the mark-up.

All of our kits will made in small runs and they will be numbered. It will be a lot like getting custom made suit. Our kits are printed in San Jose and sewn in Oakland.  New Kit Day will publish a new design  about once a month and there will be a short early ordering period with freebies like t-shirts, stickers or arm warmers for the first 100 orders.  Once we have 100+ orders, we go into production and a few weeks later it's New Kit Day! 

Every design that reaches 100 orders will also be available to reorder in the New Kit Day Vault.  You can catch a glimpse of some of our future designs at the end of our video.

Fabrics, Lycra and Chamois

The most important components are the materials. We have sourced materials from the same manufacturers that the high-end clothing manufacturers use. We'll let you in on a little secret: There are only a handful of Chamois manufacturers in the world and about dozen good Lycra/Spandex manufacturers.

Our bibshorts are feature a solid medium-weight spandex/polyester blend that has great wicking properties; so the shorts never feel heavy. The stretch-compression of the spandex is high and the pad stays in place.

The chamois we chose is from a high-end manufacturer.  It has seamless construction and great density without feeling bulky. It has a frictionless top layer and it is made from antibacterial materials. It is really a super comfortable all-day chamois.  We have been riding it for months and it is definitely NOT a cheapo chamois.  We hate cheapo chamois.

Our jersey is made from high stretch, wicking polyester and has great features like easy access, non-sagging rear pockets and a full length zipper. It also has a silicon gripper at the bottom, but not on the arm openings.

The Kickstarter Kit & Reward Notes

The first kit we are producing is detailed below.  You may notice some slight design variation between our snap-on form and the photos below.  The actual kit will be marked as Design #1 and will have the lightning bolt rear-pocket.  The Chinese characters on the kit translates to "New Kit Day"

We have a men's and women's versions of the kit.  There is a size chart below.  Both the women's and men's fit similar to other high-end brand likes capo, pearl and others but are not cut tiny like rapha. 

The women's bibs come with a slightly different chamois than the men's (men's is pictured below).  The women's bibs also have a silicon gripper at the leg opening.  The women's jersey is a feminine cut.  Korina is wearing an x-small jersey and small bibs in the pictures.  She is 5'4" and 120 Lbs.

For the men there will be two Jersey styles: Race Cut and Club Cut.  Club Cut is a looser version of the Race Cut, the sizing is the same.  The Bibs will come with the Chamois pictured below and powergripper at the leg opening.  Tony is wearing a medium Race Cut jersey and medium bibs in the pictures.  He is 5'10" and 172 lbs with a 32 inch waist.

Once our project is funded, we will gather all the details like the cut, size, quantity and so on.  You will be able to order any combination of sizes per kit/color.  For now please just choose your reward and we will deliver a New Kit Day.

Beautify The Peloton

That's our mission! Please help us out and get a great kit in return. If this Kickstarter is successful we can launch our next few designs in the coming months. We have some amazing kits coming soon. So join us and let's make it a New Kit Day!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Thankfully our risks and challenges are fairly few and minor. New Kit Day is producing everything right here in the San Francisco Bay Area. We oversee the whole process. Here are some possible risks and mitigation.

Production Time - Typically is takes 4 to 6 weeks to produce and ship custom clothing depending on the number of other projects currently manufacturing at the facility. Since we have a professional designer our layouts will be production ready. We also handle the ordering process, so our deposits and shipping information will also be ready before production is completed. This should cut down on overall production time.

Materials & Chamois - We have samples of all the materials and chamois already and New Kit Day will review the actual kits coming off the line to make sure all the materials, workmanship and quality stay top notch.

Shipping - Our order will ship directly to the customer from the production facility with tracking information.
