Customised Kit for Champions System

You can order team kit for Impetus-PEF Private Equity Triathlon 2018 for Champion Systems.

Champion System is a worldwide leader in custom technical apparel, known for our solid commitment to pioneering innovative garments that can be customised with virtually any design. Along the way we have revolutionised sublimation printing, redefined garment construction and simplified the custom ordering process.

We are proud to collaborate with Impetus-PEF as official sponsors of The Impetus-PEF Private Equity Triathlon 2018. As an event partner Champion System will donate 5% of the value of your team kit order to the charity, doing our bit to back the best for disadvantaged young people.

We can supply your team with fully customised triathlon specific performance kit for the event allowing you to showcase your company colours, brand logos and your own creative flare. Stand out from the crowd in your own design.


We are often asked if wetsuits have to be worn at our events. But the wearing of wetsuits in triathlon is governed by British Triathlon rules and is totally dependent on water temperature one hour before the start of the event.

Water Temperature Wetsuit Rule
Water Temp less than 14 degrees Wetsuits are COMPULSORY
Water temp 14 – 22 degrees Wetsuits are OPTIONAL
Water temp above 22 degrees Wetsuits are BANNED

We do say that wetsuits in fact help with buoyancy and warmth, so we strongly recommend that you wear one if they are optional. We will keep you updated with water temperature as we get closer to the event but at Dorney Lake it is almost always an optional wetsuit swim.
