Firecrest MTB – Jersey 2018 – Order Information

We are taking orders for the 2018 Firecrest Mountain Biking Jersey. The jersey will be produced by Primal Clothing as a custom downhill jersey design for Firecrest MTB.

We have chosen their Custom DH Jersey for the material, cut and fit as it is designed for pads and body armour. As a result the tops come up quite large and most people that have tried them on are going for a size smaller than they would usually wear (e.g. Medium = Small). Please bear this in mind when sizing your order as we won’t be able to offer an exchange or refund on these custom orders.

The Jersey’s cost £45.00 each and can be ordered via the order form below. Please note the following order deadline.

Please Note: The order deadline is Friday 29th September and I am expecting the Order to be delivered 6 weeks from Monday 2nd October (week beginning 13th November). As soon as it is delivered your order will be available to collect on Aston Hill.
