HOW DO I ORDER??

Kalas has it's own shop, which is directly linked to the manufacturing proces. This means that once the shops are closed the orders are taken into production right away. No delays and there for a quick and speedy proces, just the way we like it.

There are two shops, one in English and one in Dutch. The Dutch is for the Dutch and the English one for international customers. This also means that the payment possibilities are different, as iDeal is only used in the Netherlands. Follow the link provided in combination with the password and you can order right away.

Kalas will put our gear in the shops once we have ordered a first badge. In this way there is no difference between what you see and what you get. For the first round and all items which are not ordered in this round, all cycling clothes will be in Kalas style.

As all traffic to our Kalas shops goes through the Cycling Espresso website, so you can find the designs of the items you will order just above this FAQ. As for the different items within the (for example) short sleeved shirts, they will all come in the same design.

As said before, after the first round of ordering the pictures of the various items will be changed to the Cycling Espresso designs.

Kalas uses a different kind of sizing that most brands. At the bottom of the page there is a perfect sizing chart (maattabel). This is a guide on the sizes you should chose. Besides the standard sizes (just numbers) there are also different sizes in length (numbers followed by a + sign) to help you to get the best fitting kit possible.

So I am nearly there, but still can't figure it out completely? No worries! We are here to help you with your order and to setup everything right so you will get your kit as quick as possible and in the right size. Feel free to contact Kalas' support if you have any question by mail or phone:

OUR STORY – Starting cycling Club Cycling Espresso

It all started in Groningen during a Running Coffee session. We decided to go start a new cycling club, based on the principals of Running Coffee. Combine cycling with coffee. Cycling Espresso was born. A free, open, accessible, clear and safe cycling club where every rider is welcome to join.

Our first ever Club Ride was in Groningen – The Netherlands. We fixed an espresso deal with one of the local coffee bars and helped them opening up at 11.00. 15 riders showed up for that first ride on July 21st, 2013. After we had an espresso we rode for roughly two hours. The voluntary captains were Lucien Davids and Jerzy Kasemier. It took almost a year for Cycling Espresso to spread outside Groningen. Zwolle was the next city, where one of the first riders, Wilfred Vogd, took the concept with him to start his own club.

From the first ride on we started collating statistics by noting all riders and their coffee needs on paper. When rider numbers increased this proces was digitalized with a subscribers form on the website. But our dream was to do all this in an app and so we partnered up with Beanclub in 2019 .

Now thousands of riders joined our Club Rides and we are growing every since. Still based on our three principles: free, accessible and open. Always with safety in mind.
