Use Your iPad to Choose Your Chamois Pad with Mt. Borah’s Semi-Custom Clothing App

Whether you’re looking to create your team’s uniforms for the upcoming season, or wanting to make matching kits for your company’s next charity ride, Mt. Borah is hoping to make the semi-custom apparel design process easier with their new App and Web tool. Users of either program will be able to pick an choose base designs, colors, text, logos, fabrics, and even chamois all with the click of a mouse or touch of the screen. Users can choose between 13 different base styles that are then able to be customized with your choice of colors and placement of team or sponsor logos and text. Considering Mt. Borah’s low 6 jersey minimum order, the ease of the new design process should open semi-custom designs to quite a few cyclists who may have thought customized kits were previously out of reach.

More on the app and the site after the jump.

The free app offers a little more functionality with text as it shows the actual text on the clothing, however it does not support logo additions. In order to add logos to your clothing you will need to use the web based tool which then replaces text with numbers showing where the text will appear on the garment, rather than showing the actual text.

The 13 different styles of kit should offer a pleasing option to most, especially when you figure in the custom color palette. Mt. Borah’s custom clothing is all made in their Coon Valley, WI factory which means there is no middle man so they can offer faster turn around with current turnaround time is about 7 weeks.

So do you just sit your bare as$ down on your iPad screen and it picks out the proper chamois?

If not then using a computer program (or app as the kids call it these days) to pick colors isn’t really news worthy.

Nope, we’ve been doing it for years at a deeper level with premium Merino.
