What is the Launch Offer?

For a limited time (offer end 30th November 2017) every member can buy one item of the new kit for just £5, the club is kindly subsidising the rest of the cost! On top of that, if at the same time you wish to order any additional items, they will discounted to the same price as the old kit, at just £15 each!

Why does the offer end on the 30th November?
