INTRODUCTION
CRAFT CUSTOM | info@craftcustom.com | 978-524-0032 x-111
CRAFT CUSTOM BIKE COLLECTION HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH PROFESSIONAL CYCLING TEAMS RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK (MEN) AND HITEC PRODUCTS MISTRAL HOME (WOMEN).

It has been tested thoroughly in the front of the professional peloton, in the 21 hairpin bends to Alpe d’Huez, and in rain and snow on the cobbled streets between Paris and Roubaix. Made of the same fabrics as our regular bike collection, the Custom Bike collection provides excellent moisture transport, ventilation and ergonomics.


ORDER PROCESS

• To begin your order, simply email info@craftcustom.com or call 877-662-7238 x111 to speak to a Craft Custom Sales Representative.

• Sizing samples are highly recommended to ensure a proper fit. The sizing samples can be ordered by filing out a sample request form and returning it to your Customer Service Rep. Sizing samples must be returned within 14 days.

• The final order and a 50% deposit are due prior to receiving artwork proofs. Once the order and deposit are confirmed,
you will receive digital proofs of every item you ordered laid out on production templates for your final approval. Art proofs usually take 1-2 days after the order and deposit is received. Once the artwork is approved a printed digital sample will be sent to you for a final approval. The printed digital sample usually arrives in 5-7 days.

• To ensure a quick turnaround on artwork proofs, artwork needs to be set up on Craft Custom templates in Illustrator or another Vector based design program. The completed artwork can be emailed to your Sales Representative in PDF, AI, or EPS. See artwork guidelines for further instructions and recommendations.

• Once the digital sample is approved, we will send your order to production. At this time we will receive a delivery date from the factory. Delivery time is usually about 6-8 weeks for most of the year.

• The balance must be finalized 10 days prior to the delivery date. If the order is not paid at this time it may delay the delivery date. Once the balance is finalized, the order will ship directly from the factory to ensure the quickest possible delivery.


THE RIGHT OUTFIT

THE RIGHT OUTFIT

FOR THE RIGHT

INDIVIDUAL


BIKE, CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING AND RUNNING ARE CRAFT’S MAIN CATEGORIES. IN ORDER TO OPTIMIZE YOUR PERFORMANCE, WE DEVELOP AND DESIGN THREE COLLECTIONS – ELITE, PERFORMANCE AND ACTIVE – WITHIN EACH CATEGORY. EACH COLLECTION HAS ITS SPECIFIC FUNCTION AND DESIGN AND TARGETS A UNIQUE GROUP OF ATHLETES. WHO ARE YOU?

When we design a new collection we always start from the athletes and their needs. If the collection will target casual cyclists, for instance, we must figure out a way to meet and preferably exceed their demands on ergonomic clothing. By answering questions like, how do they cycle, how do they sit on their bikes, at what intensity do they train and how do they sweat, we map the ergonomics of this specific group. By adding this knowledge to our expertise in technical fabrics and technical design we are able to create optimal bike wear for this kind of cyclists. We apply this way of working to all our sports categories and their Elite, Performance and Active sublevels.

DESIGN TEMPLATE &

FOOTNOTES


TO MAKE PRODUCTION TIME AS SHORT AS POSSIBLE, MAKE SURE THAT THE DESIGN IS MADE WITH CRAFT CUSTOM LINE TEMPLATES IN ILLUSTRATOR OR OTHER VECTOR BASED DESIGN PROGRAM.

• Please make measurement notes on sizes, logotypes etc.
• All graphics should be made in vector design.
• If pictures are included in design they must be in 300 dpi and scale 1:1
• All colors should be named as PMS colors or from
Cottontex colour chart.
• All logotypes must be in vector design.
• Save template in editable PDF format.






What is vector artwork?
Your artwork should be created in a vector-based software program, such as Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand, and then saved to one of our supported formats (.eps, .cdr, .ai, .fh). Vector art is made from a series of mathematical curves and is the key for printing because vector-based images can be scaled indefinitely without degrading. Your vector logo will be printed with maximum precision even when resized. A low-resolution raster graphic would blur excessively if it were enlarged. Most logos are created as vector files. Logos taken from websites, business card images or faxed logos are low resolution and are not suitable for printing.
They will NOT work.

What if you can’t get your logos in vector format?
Please make sure the images are of high resolution: 300 dpi n scale, 1:1 (.pdf, .jpg, .tif).

How do I see if my logos are vector?
Vector logos can be scaled indefinitely without degrading. Non-vector artwork is identifiable if the file you have ends in .JPEG, .GIF, .BMP.

What is the Pantone Matching System? (PMS)
The Pantone Matching System is the most known color reproduction system and the industry standard. Pantone colors are described by their allocated number. Examples: PMS 161 green, Pantone 185 red or Pantone Yellow 012 C.

CHAMOIS GUIDE
CRAFT CUSTOM | info@craftcustom.com | 978-524-0032 x-111
CHAMOIS GUIDE


DIFFERENT DENSITIES IN DIFFERENT SIZES

Craft’s advanced bike pads have been cut using the groundbreaking Lasercut Tech®technology. The Lasercut Tech® procedure allows us to remove the unnecessary volume of foam before the welding. We can then focus on the design without having any uncomfortable hardness caused by the pressure of the foams. In addition, it increases the ventilation by more than 100%. This is the only technology that achieves these fantastic results.


ELITE CHAMOIS

1st TECHNOLOGY
The different layers are melted with a natural flame that passes between the layers, making them melt just enough to attach and become a unique single piece. This process makes it possible to attach different densities to each other and thereby achieve the breathability level of one piece.

2nd TECHNOLOGY
The second important technology is embodied by the central internal foam, which is high-density foam (100 kg) with two great characteristics: It is a special foam with ”exploded bubbles” that give support and allow a greater airflow than any other open-cell polyurethane foam.

3rd TECHNOLOGY
The GEL Injection Anti-shock System is made up of three separate gel injections that absorb any shock caused by road vibrations. The gel is non- toxic paraffinic oil injected with pores for optimal respiration.

4th TECHNOLOGY
The Elite Chamois is available in three sizes with different densities, which means that any rider will find a pad that satisfies all his or her unique needs and demands. The chamois is available in sizes XS/S, M/L and XL/XXL.



PERFORMANCE CHAMOIS

The Performance Chamois is a 3-layer, seamless, anatomically molded, antimicrobial and gender- specific chamois made of Oeko-Tex® fabrics and foams of the highest quality.

FIRST LAYER
The first layer is made of a printed, top-quality, 4-way stretch fabric that shows exactly what is underneath the chamois. It’s like a map of the chamois technology.

SECOND LAYER
The second layer is made of super-supportive lightweight foam. This special high-density layer increases the support and the airflow at the same time, thanks to the exploded bubble technology of the foam.

THIRD LAYER
The third layer is 3 mm thick and perforated with 2 mm holes for enhanced airflow. The EVA foam is covered with a 4-way stretch fabric that decreases friction and protects the Anti-shock System during use and washing.

ACTIVE CHAMOIS

The Active Chamois is designed to suit all kinds of riders and to make every ride a comfortable experience.

The Active Chamois is a seamless, laser cut, antimicrobial and gender-specific pad made of Oeko-Tex®-certified fabrics and foams of the highest quality. The chamois provides the right support for all body movements thanks to its well- designed sitting area and 4-way stretch fabrics.

- 10 mm thickness in seated region
- 4 mm thickness in transition region
- 25 mm padded wing thickness

ELITE CYCLOCROSS CHAMOIS

The Elite Cyclocross Chamois features cross- specific tailoring designed to enhance the range- of-motion- dynamics unique to this demanding discipline. The chamois is a 4-way stretch compound that continually move with the body. it’s a seamless, anatomically molded, anti-microbial and gender-specific chamois made of Oeko-Tex®- certified fabrics and foams of the hightest quality.

- 5 mm thickness in seated region
- 3 mm PADDED WING THICKNESS
