You could say I've road tested the full range of Ultimo kit. In fact I've road, mountain bike, duathlon and cyclocross tested it!
It looks fantastic, the quality is superb and its super durable and hardwearing, washing up good as new after even the filthiest of races! But aside from looking great the garments are also extra comfortable.
Short chamois are funny things and even the most expensive high tech designs that look flash in the shop can niggle when you're out on the bike.
Ultimo shorts are just brilliant with padding in all the right places - so no niggles - without making you feel like you've donned a nappy. I should know, I've ridden in them for 12 hours.
Nick wore Ultimo custom clothing during his 96 hour, 1600km endurance ride (10 laps of Lake Taupo).
I would like to thank Ultimo for your support of my 10 lap ultimate enduro, it is great to have support of a local company and I feel great pride every time I pull on my custom kit.
In 2010 I completed the 8 lap extreme enduro [in another supplier's clothing] I suffered so much damage that I had to have 1 month off the bike and I used 3 large tubs of chamois cream. This year I rode the ten laps [in Ultimo clothing] I used 1 tub of chamois cream and was able to ride the next day feeling tired but physically fresh I think that speaks for itself.
My Ultimo kit is the most comfortable kit I have ever worn, I wish I had worn it sooner.
I have found your team to be fast, efficent and produce a top product and I love the design.
Did you know? We're not just New Zealand owned, we make our kit right here in New Zealand, too.
Organising a world-class stage race like the Tour of Southland is a massive undertaking. I need everything to be ready on time for race day, and there's no margin for error in sizing, design or delivery date.
Ultimo have proved themselves time and again that they can produce top quality kit on a really tight time-frame.
It can be a real challenge for teams to get their rider sizes and sponsor details together, but Ultimo come to the party and make sure that everyone is kitted out for race day - even the late entries.
