we have nailed it down to No Pinz. They met all the criteria were looking for offering a wide range of styles for various disciplines from hyper fast skinsuits all the way to some casual off the bike pieces and accessories.
But how much do they weigh?

This is WW, not FW. First and foremost, WW clothing should be LIGHT. Especially that clothing which advertises its wearer as a WW.

The point of WW should be saving weight, not just violating UCI rules. If you can manage to get your bike below 6.8, and are subject to UCI rules, the most important weight to save is that not counted in the 6.8, such as clothing, shoes, cleats (and helmet if you don't care too much about your noggin).

Of course, for FW, the most important criterion is whether the kit matches their bar tape and saddle.

I'd suggest a jersey that works with plain black or blue shorts. By 'works' I mean as if they were designed to be together. My club/team use No Pinz and nobody likes the shorts. Disappointing pad and just generally not great quality.

As for the colours I'd plead with you to avoid the pink/blue combo on page 2. I see a version of this combo literally everywhere during the summer. I feel a weight weenie kit should be unusual/different/rare but still stylish, a little like we are within the cycling community.

People like blue and neon pink ... the jersey will certainly be rare if it's not a popular color scheme.

When the Weight Weenie jersey sells? and where to buy? It is not designed yet?

No it's not yet very much a work In progress.. looks like we will go with no pinz as you can open a club shop on their page and people can order items directly from them worldwide

Really glad to hear there might be a new kit initiative. I still have mine from the round 10-something years ago although it’s starting to be worn and the bibs are long goneImage

These are some kits i quite liked from searching through other clubs no pinz designs. Im fully sold on the kit being more modern and pro. ImageImageImage

Really like the dark blue and pink. I'd buy a jersey, as long as it is 'race fit', which guessing it would be with Nopinz.

How about a Bandit unsponsored style in all black or all white that just has <6.8kg graphic on it
IYKYK type of thing. Race fit, visually "lightweight" and sleek.
