Import taxes and customs fees: When I choose my country of delivery, the prices increase, what happens?< /big>

The VAT zones work in relation to the billing address but also the delivery address. 

  1. As part of an intra-community delivery, French VAT is applied (20%).
  2. Otherwise, your delivery will be made tax-free and upon receipt of your package, you will have to pay the customs duties in force in your country. KiWAMi is not responsible for these import fees and other taxes.
  3. For any further information, do not hesitate to contact KiWAMi! (contact@sports.com or Tel: +33 5 5932 2936)

How should I wash my triathlon outfit?

Your KIWAMI triathlon outfit is a highly technical product designed for performance. In order to preserve its technicality, cut and color, we advise you to respect our maintenance rules and our products.

Wash :

For a better longevity of your outfit, we strongly recommend washing by hand with a mild soap and rinsing with clear water.


If however, you wish to use your washing machine, we advise you to:

  • Close the zip before putting your outfit in the washing machine;
  • Always wash the garment inside out;
  • Wash cold or very low temperature (below 30°C, delicate programme, lingerie or wool) with a gentle spin cycle so as not to break the fibres;
  • Use a mild liquid detergent, specially designed for sporting goods (do not use products containing chlorine, bleach, whiteners, fabric softeners, perfumes and dyes);
  • Wash your Kiwami triathlon outfit separately from your street clothes;
  • Lay your outfit straight flat from the end of your machine. It is important not to leave it wet for several hours in your machine;




  • DO NOT USE A DRYER OR IRON, your outfit may shrink and lose its technicality;
  • Drying should be done in a natural way, away from direct sunlight and heat sources (without wringing your outfit to drain it so as not to take the risk of deforming it);< /li>
  • Use clothespins that do not break the fiber or risk snagging the stitches of the fabric;
  • Store your Kiwami outfits in a dry and ventilated place. Avoid humid places.

To extend the life of your Kiwami products, please pay particular attention to the following points:

Triathlon and trail-running products: our triathlon outfits are for competition use only and are not designed to be worn for every training session. Do you use your carbon wheels in your workouts???? ? 

Note: for outfits designed in white fabric, be aware that they will obviously be more prone to soiling and stains (perspiration, cream, felt, marking of bib numbers, etc.) than dark fabrics.


Swimming products: our tips for taking care of your swimsuit

  • Rinse/wash your swimsuit with clear water or with a mild soap after each use, chlorine and salt are your swimsuit's worst enemies because they destroy the elastane fibers contained in the fabric;< /li>
  • Wring out without twisting or stretching your swimsuit too much and let it dry in a dry place away from the sun.
  • In the washing machine, use a cycle for delicate laundry or lingerie and place it in a net.



How long does a Kiwami outfit last?

The lifespan of our triathlon and trail running products depends on your use!

We advise you to follow the care instructions, our products will accompany you for a long time on your shopping trips!


Kiwami guarantees its zips and seams for one year from the date of purchase. If the seams of your outfit come unstitched, we will repair your garment*. Excluded from the guarantee are all deteriorations resulting from misuse, falls, abrasive friction and non-compliance with maintenance instructions.


*Kiwami repairs seams/zips on garments in good overall condition. In our objective to offer quality clothing, we do not repair the seams of an unusable garment (holes or very worn). In order to ensure your comfort and your image, it is indeed advisable to replace a garment that has become too damaged to run in good conditions. 

Since Kiwami products are highly technical, it is important to follow the instructions for use.


The following damages are not covered by the warranty :

-Damage caused by misuse, abuse or neglect.

-Damages from impacts and scratches.


-Failure to follow washing instructions causing discoloration/shrinkage/pilling.

-Normal wear of materials, discoloration due to abnormal use of the garment.

Specific cases:



To create our models, we select fabrics that are not only technical but also soft and comfortable to wear. However, these fabrics remain fragile to a certain extent and are less resistant to wear than a pair of jeans for example! Avoid any friction with belts (poor quality bib holder, backpack strap, etc.) or with gripping or rough surfaces such as Velcro, for example, which produces more or less inevitable abrasion effects . Please be aware that this does not impede the functionality of the product and the damage is only cosmetic. Kiwami does not warrant abrasion effects.

Lycra and elastane

These are elastic fibers incorporated into fabrics to improve their extensibility. During training or competition, chlorine, perspiration, sunscreen or energy drinks attack these fibers. This is why careful maintenance after each use can counteract these harmful effects. Remember to rinse the garments with clear water immediately after use in chlorinated or salt water and after any sports activity, in order to prolong their life.
