Order Cycle Explained

Each and every ELEVEN vélo is unique, made to order for each customer. Because of this, we have a set production cycle which is explained below.

Our weekly order cycle closes every Thursday PM, and from this point ELEVEN vélo orders follow a set 4 Step production cycle of cutting and sewing (the production cycle does not include transit times to you):

Step 1: Pipeline: Thursday 5pm Eastern Australian Time each week the order cycle closes and the next week’s begins. On Friday’s, orders for the closed cycle are sorted and prepared for the cutting cycle, starting on Monday.

Step 2: Cutting: 5-7 working days > When your order is finished cutting, we send an email with a link to see an image of your kit. *

Step 3: Sewing: 7-10 working days > Once your order is in the sewing shop, we send another email update. **

Step 4: Shipping: We ship orders every Friday and you receive the
‘Order Competed’ email. ***

Notes:

* Depending on workload or the types and sizes of kit we are cutting, we may fast track some orders if they fit into a cutting run or we can batch cut.

** Usually sewing is completed within the 7 working day window. On very heavy order cycles or weeks with public holidays, we can creep closer to 10.

*** Pre-made items ship within a few days of the order landing.

When your order comes to us…

ELEVEN vélo kit is more than something pulled out of a box, packaged and sent to you; each has a part of you in it, a part that is uniquely yours, which is why our bespoke system is one totally unique to us.

order cycle

1: When we process your order we print it out and make up your order sheet. This details your order for cutting and sewing.

2: Your order sheet is then placed in a ‘job bag’ along with any needed components; to keep waste to a minimum, we ship orders in the same job bag they start life in.

3: We then batch your order with all others from the order cycle for cutting.

4: With your order cut, everything needed goes into the job bag and heads off to sewing.

What can hold things up?

Making bespoke products is a highly involved process, far more so than making 20, 50 or even 300 of one thing. Each order is completely unique, with the correct patterns and fabrics pulled and cut for each separate item; even in the sewing room, the machinists must rethread each machines for each different item!

Occasionally we run into things that may hold up the process, such as running out of a particular fabric or other material mid cycle, delays on the sewing room floor or a larger than usual batch of orders. While we try our very best to keep our cycle disruptions to a minimum, for your sake and ours, unfortunately sometimes it can not be avoided.

What else should I know?

The above information explains our process fairly well. Things though can and do change from time to time…

You should not plan on receiving your order by a particular date i.e. just before an event.

While we try our very best to keep on time, and manage to do so on most occasions, hold ups in the process as outlined above or lags in the postal system can disrupt things. Because of this, we can not guarantee that you will receive your order by a particular date.

Crash Replacement

Bought some ELEVEN vélo kit that you love but crashed hard and wrote it off beyond any level or wearability? We have you covered.

crash1

Our crash replacement program removes the insult from injury and offers you a 30% discount to replace what your crash took away. To qualify for the program, send us pics of your destroyed kit and we’ll assess if we can repair it or it needs to be replaced.

Size Me Down

So you’ve been riding, a lot, and the ELEVEN vélo kit you bought is now flapping in the wind? Well, we want to make sure the kit that got you to where you are now, will keep you going a whole lot further.

If you’ve dropped a full size or three (in a minimum of three months) and find that the ELEVEN vélo kit you bought no longer fits like it once did, we will offer to replace it for you for 50% of the current listed price. All you need to do is contact us and send the kit to be downsized back to ELEVEN vélo. In return you’ll get brand new kit that fits like it should and you can pick up where you left off, riding lots!

Customer Testimonials

“Hi Gerard,

I love the jersey you made for me. The fit is great. That’s why I wanted to get a new one. Rode in a century ride a couple of weeks ago and that jersey helped me get through it. Cool in the morning and a little warm in the afternoon. Felt comfortable in it all day.

Looking forward to the new jersey.

Best Regards,

John” – US

Fabric Tech

The Superfine Merino fabric we use is 100% Australian grown, spun and woven. It is not sent offshore to be processed but is made in Victoria, Australia. This means that our Merino retains a low carbon footprint by reducing the transportation required from the farm to our supplier, to us; all of which add to the already high sustainable credentials of wool fibre.

Our Merino is also certified ‘non-Mulesing’, meaning it is sourced from ‘best farming practices’ growers that ensure the highest standards of animal welfare.

The 170gsm (5 oz) Superfine Merino is light and tough, yet soft against the skin with a non itch feel. As the 170gsm regulates temperature so well, we use it as a base layer in winter and an only layer in summer, and have tested it from 0 degrees C all the way through to 38 deg C and can vouch for its outstanding abilities.

Other key features of Merino are:

  • Fully breathable.
  • Natural thermally regulating – keeps you warm in winter AND cool in summer.
  • Naturally anti bacterial and odour free.
  • Flame resistance.
  • Sustainable, renewable and biodegradable.
  • Ethically grown, locally.
  • Guaranteed 17 Micron, Superfine.
  • Not blended with other, lesser quality wool.
  • Machine washable.
  • Excellent colour fastness.

Care

For best results and product longevity, we suggest the following care instructions:

  • Cold to warm wash. Cold wash for best results.
  • Hang or warm machine dry. Hang dry is preferable.
  • Do not bleach.
  • Warm iron.
