*THE HIGHLIGHTS: We are making CBC race suits produced by Swix for $220.
This email is only to determine your interest and you just need to reply to
me indicate interest and quantity. You will not need to purchase now. And
based on how slow Swix has been, I wouldn’t expect the suits to arrive
until January if that impacts your interest. Please be respectful of the
club mailing list and resist the urge to comment or ask questions using
‘reply all’. *

LONG VERSION

Two files are attached: one PDF shows a CBC race suit from Swix with “cuff
grip material” and the second is a spread sheet that points to sizing
information (yes I realize it points to a Norwegian site-see note below).
The suit and pants total $220 and our suit would be the BIATHLON RACING TOP
and the RACING PANT PRO.

*ALL YOU NEED TO DO IF YOU ARE **INTERESTED** IN A SUIT IS REPLY TO THIS
EMAIL INDICATING YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A SUIT* so we can determine our
quantities. Swix will create a Team Site from which you will order and pay.

Specifically the suit uses a Swix biathlon top which has strategic grips at
the cuff location. Note to left-handed racers: I do not know if the grip is
on both sides-I will ask. *Also, currently we only have a race suit as it
took FOREVER (nearly 6 weeks) working with Swix just to get this suit…*

REGARDING OTHER CLOTHING ITEMS

*In your email to me, you can indicate interest in other items like a vest,
jacket, and pants and we can have Swix cerate those. *They have been so
slow, so I simply had them focus on the suit and I didn’t want them to
create other items we may not want.  *REMEMBER, YOU ARE NOT ORDERING NOW,
JUST INDICATING INTEREST.* *Once we determine if we have enough interest,
Swix will generate a team site where you will order and pay directly on the
Swix ‘team site’.*



THINGS I ALREADY KNOW: THE PRODUCT PAGES ARE IN NORWEGIAN

*Yes, the links from the spreadsheet send you to a Swix site using
Norwegian language. Message from Swix: “just right mouse click and choose
‘translate’*… *I was equally unimpressed with this answer.* Remember, you
are not purchasing now, just indicating interest and the sizing is simply
to confirm you think you could find a size you like. I’m told the Team Site
will be in English.



FINAL THOUGHTS

Though it has been more difficult and has been a slower process compared
with the previous suit supplier, it will be nice to try a Swix suit
construction. *Also, based on how slow they have been to get the design
done, I don’t expect them to be insanely fast to make our suits. I would
not expect suits until January. *Hopefully their customer service and
timeliness will improve once we have our orders placed.



Thanks,

Brian Woodard
