Odd that both companies seem so unaware of the concept of a clear and consistent company identity that the women's kit has almost* nothing in common:

*There are 2/3 of an Adidas logo on the sleeves and legs in common.

Lotto (we don't need to disambiguate that any more, which rather undermines Soudal's investment) has less red (and what is there is a rather more orangey tone?) and more white, and a few dots.

Uninspired, but identifiable

They're putting more and more baby-blue on their kit.
What's the idea behind? Is there any idea behind?

It's not an Alpecin corporate colour, it's nothing Russian - ah sorry, the team is international with a Swiss license now. But it's nothing Swiss either. So what is it?!

Is it just me, or are cycling kits increasingly being produced along the design criteria for football kits.  Are they intending making them in XXXL sizes and a material suitable for wearing to the pub?

None whatsoever. They're both Dutch teams, but that's really it.

Maybe they have the same kit designer - or orange and black are just en vogue again. ;)

Same as last year? Slight difference in that the white doesn't extend across the top of the shoulder to the neckline and the arms have those thin lines that Trek had the other year.

No doubt we'll get a full picture later.

It's still bewildering to me that year after year, team after team, design after design, the emphasis still seems to be on how the kits look when viewed head-on while standing. Since that represents only about 1% of the exposure they might receive, why is there so little focus on how the kits will look, and be recognized, from the side, the back, and from above, while in the riding position?
:slow

There should be more focus on how the helmets stand out, too. Standing frontal shots of team kits are a bit like tattoos on the inside of lips. You're only going to see them under rarified conditions.

When I first saw the EF kit just as a picture of the jersey I thought it looked pretty terrible but now I've seen it on the riders while riding I've been won over by it and think it looks pretty good. As Drummer Boy says we probably need to see them in the context that we will see them most of the time to make a final judgement on any kit.

Yeah, I didn't mind it at all, on or off the bike. Blocky jerseys have become the worrying norm for the last two or three seasons and that's OK on a handful of teams but it's a dreadful trend when the majority sign up to it.

The word "disruptive" is terribly vogueish these days but I think pro kits generally could use a bit of disruption. For years now, we have seen the consumer market turning out some really cool design and the pros, who should be torchbearers for all things cutting edge, have continued (with a few rare exceptions) to get stuck with sincerely dull and/or ugly sh*t. European manufacturers in particular have been far too conservative for far too long.

Good point. I understand the front is important for the sponsors when their rider wins and is on the podium. But the back should be created with seeing the riders from above in mind.

UCI referred to some rule about parts of the jersey are allowed to have sponsor names/logos and nothing else: names are permissible but only in some places (and maybe type sizes). 

One day they will go spectator friendly, and have either clearly visible names or season-long numbers (within each team: no reason why race organisers cannot continue to allocate race numbers for their own administrative purposes, but we don't need them to be obvious).    And maybe they will get around to placing the transponder chips in shirts or helmets rather than on bikes that are often swapped.

Title: Re: Men's Kits 2019
Post by: t-72 on January 13, 2019, 20:49
The transponder can be placed around the leg (that's the way they do it in XC skiing). Cyclists don't swap legs.

Nope, not allowed either.

IAM wanted to have the name incorporated into the sponsor logo - UCI said no.
MTN wanted to have different letters for each rider instead of the big Qhubeka Q - UCI said no.

Essentially, you're only allowed to put the riders' name (or Twitter handle, or whatever) on the sleeves, side panels, or in certain areas of the back, and only in a small font that is practically invisible in race conditions. Several teams do this already, and all it does is simplify the sorting of laundry, really.

And then there are instances of riders borrowing other riders' kit, making a complete mess of it: :lol
Anecdotally, Dan Craven was doing the 2016 Sibiu Tour prologue (and mountain TT) in Guillaume Boivin's skinsuit after tearing his own in a crash at the Tour de Beauce.

I like the jersey, I must say - but it doesn't fit at all with the yellow bikes

edit: okay, seems like I wasn't the only one to notice it ;) - here's the new one:

wrong kind of blue, by the look of it, but better than yellow

It is very corporate blandola, yes, but I think it looks fine on its own, like on the photos we've seen so far.
The real test will be how it looks on a heli or long-lense moto camera shot on a rainy spring day in Northern France - and I fear it may well fail that test.

Now we await the world's favourite fracking company's go...
Replacing the light blue with red, and the Sky logos with those of Ineos?

Yeah, that's my thought as well. Those yellow rings really stood out. Even though I didn't like the design all that much - I loved being able to pick them out of a crowd. Final score: a winner! This one? Vanilla, through and through. Probably had to do a rush job of it. It smacks of "bog standard" template.

Wow. Talk about painting the cow to look like an elephant! Or how does that go? The vid rumbles with DRAMA, over a kit so vanilla this could be a farce (in the comedic sense).

I think they bought the leftovers from Garmin-Sharp 2013. Saves them a lot on branding and graphics designers :)

I actually like the look of that INEOS kit.  :P

I tend to have a general aversion to the color red, but I like the ruby red shade of that top. I wonder if their helmets will match that? I hope so, as it will make them easier to recognize in the group than if they go with black.

OK, now I see that they've gone with a bit of both. I like the full kit less, though, when seen like that.

It looks as if the white band is narrower than the red and blue ones. I really hope it isn't.
Regardless, I would have liked the bands to be wider in general. And I'd like to see them on the collar too.

Black sleeves and a shoulder bar (which will draw more attention to Kruijswijk's freakishly wide shoulders) to distinguish the yellow jerseyed team from the yellow jersey.

They don't get an extra kit smiley for that. :P

Not counting ITTs and TTTs (or Sunday's national champs), it has been a while: 2011 Tour de Suisse.

Thanks Lukas

That is some record... anyone know if another rider has so successfully avoided trade kit for longer than 8 seasons?
