Pilling/Bobbling & Snagging 

Our sportswear is produced in Europe using fabrics from the world’s top technical fabric manufacturers. 

All our fabrics have been extensively tested, are hard wearing and entirely suitable for purpose and we are confident that you will not experience a fabric fault, HOWEVER you must take care with your garments as they can easily snag or pill if they come into contact with sharp or rough objects. 

If your garment shows isolated signs of piling or snagging, this is most likely due to it rubbing or catching on something sharp or rough and is not a fabric fault.

Please check your bike for saddle straps, wires, velcro, fastenings, seat bags, mud guards etc.

Ensure that you do not sit on rough or splintered seating, take care with wooden picnic tables and ensure that zips, fastenings and velcro of other garments do not rub and cause damage.

Faulty Items

If your item develops a problem please email your order number, details and photos to 

We may need to see your garment in which case you will need to send it to our office address (NOT our warehouse). We do not refund returns postage. We will offer a credit note, refund, partial refund or replacement garment only if we consider the item to be faulty. 

We are unable to process any unwashed or soiled items for either a refund or exchange.
