HEAT Uniform and Team Shirt – Last Day to Order 3/31

Louis Garneau will produce our custom HEAT uniform this year.

We will be ordering the Performance Delfino “Racer” tri tops and shorts in sizes for men and women.   LG also offers a new custom “team” shirt that we may also order if there is enough interest.

This is the only opportunity to purchase the HEAT uniform for this year.  Orders need to be finalized within the next 2 weeks in order to have delivery by the beginning of the season.   We are offering the Tri Tops for $45, shorts for $40, and the Custom Team shirt for $25.   A flat $5 shipping fee will be added to the order.
These prices are 50% off retail.

See sizing charts below for details.

Since these are custom items, delivery will take about 10 weeks after we finalize the order and designs and no exchanges are available.

If you have any questions, please send an email to membership@ctheat.org.
