Astana-esque

What was the design brief - "we are one of the most recognized teams in the peloton - can you water down the look, and make us far less noticeable..."   :S

    That is truly pants...

    Can't wait for the 'cycling jersey podcast' police to get their hands on that one.

    #didata ditch the black, at least on the jersey.

    #cannondale scale back the green (and the argyle) in favour of #efd white and ... pink (or, in the case of the training kit, orange):

    #nippo merge with #gm - and one victim of that merger is the colour orange which is scaled back a lot on the 2018 kit (made by Santini):

    Also, the triangular blocks are replaced by a pattern of squares somewhat reminiscent of the green dots on the #bora jersey.

    Hmm.. the #didata new kit reminds me of the fact that the 2017 kit actually looked really good, as long as the users of said kit were not national champions. New one is definetly a degradation! (white is the new black?)

    The #cannondale cannondale EF kit looks like Lampre met Bardiani and now they're all back with black!

    I have seen some pictures where it looks like a bad idea, especially one of Rigo Uran outside (with lots of diffuse lighting but not direct sunlight) but yesterday Sep VanMarcke posted 8or I saw) a few images of him riding classic cobbles near his home with some threatening dark skies overhead...and it looks great!

    compare with

    Conclusion: fashion photography takes skills too!

    Got to disagree there - we/ I gave many teams a kicking last year for over use of black - so it's good to see dimension data's corporate green take a more prominent role, plus they have properly reinstated dual rainbow sleeves for Cav so looks clean and crisp for me.  That said the bib shorts tweets were an epic fail l!!

    Do agree with commentary on Sep tho - he looks fine! V :cool

    They'll simply declare the Giro a training race. Problem solved. :D

    I don't think so ... there's a little bit more pink than the old Lampre outfit?

    The orange kit is fairly good in its own right, but not sure teams need to go down the football wormhole of multipe change kits, heh it's not like many cyclists actually 'dress up' in replica kit  :lol
