Preview of the 2015 SOAS racing Brand Ambassador kit

Pieces of fabric laid out to be sewn into new SOAS kit.

I’ve absolutely loved wearing the 2014 SOAS Brand Ambassador kit (and have to admit that my workout wardrobe is significantly more turquoise as a consequence… I even refused to buy a new pair of Brooks PureFlows until my local shop agreed to get them in turquoise), so I’ve been waiting with bated breath to find out what the 2015 kit would be like.

The first hint was the ‘team kit’ that was previewed at Interbike, back in September.

We had another hint back in November when we saw the exclusive Kona kits, which were in the trademark turquoise with fluorescent accents:

Then finally, we got the first glimpse of the awesome kit that I’ll be wearing in 2015:

Fortunately, there’s still some turquoise, so I don’t need to replace my shoes etc. I really like the look of this design, and am so excited about receiving another super box full of goodies from SOAS.

I am also really happy to know that some of the awesome triathletes I met this year are going to be on the team, including:

  • Kat Marshall, who coaches on the Embrace Sports camps that I love
  • Elena Nikitina, who I met when cycling in the Pyrenees in May
  • Rosie Wild, who I met at a triathlon training camp in Portugal

As soon as the new SOAS kits are available, I’m going to be stocking up as I LOVE the new designs. Which one is your favourite?


 

Update – December 2015
I have loved wearing this kit this year and am just as excited about the 2016 kit. I’ve recently blogged about the sneak previews that we’ve had.

  1. I love the Kona kit, it’s so flashy, but I feel like I’d need to live up to the kit! I think the new kit is really smart (and thanks for the shoutout ! :p)

    • Yes – the ambassador kits are excellent value for money and we get a generous discount on all of the other kit. I get the impression that the kits are quite widely stocked in tri shops in USA – I’ve never seen any in a UK shop 🙁

      • I have bever seen a tri kit for women in a store here. I have seen cycling shirts and shorts, but rately matching kits. Granted, we dont live in a huge town (220k, capital city of our state). I am now curious where people get kits. Most of my cycling buddies and folks i have seen out on the rides have kits from clubs or rides they did.

        • There’s not a lot of choice in stores for women here. There’s a chain of stores that sells car maintenance products and bikes, which also sells a limited range of cycling kit, but apart from that it’s necessary to visit specialist cycling shops for kit, and then it’s often expensive/pink/black/not available in the right size. The internet is a godsend in terms of choice, but I do like to be able to try kit on!

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
