We find out what the riders of Team Sky will be wearing in 2014 as their new kit has been unveiled by British brand Rapha. So, what will Chris Froome don this year as he rides the Tour de France?
Designed in line with Team Sky’s ‘marginal gains’ philosophy – creating optimal performance by perfecting every detail – Rapha say the kit matches their own approach.
And with new, updated designs available for 2014, female fans can also buy their own Team Sky replica kit to show their support over the coming year.
The Pro Collection, designed to the same specifications as Team Sky’s kit, offers ‘robust simplicity’, which Rapha claim make it ‘streamlined, lightweight, durable and unfailingly fit for purpose’.
Featuring products using proprietary fabrics and cutting edge technology, the Pro Collection includes a new mesh jersey – released this summer – two new glove designs and a lightweight gilet.
A new wet bag, designed at the request of the team, has also been added to the range.
Women’s replica kit
Replica kit is also available, with shorts and jerseys featuring the iconic blue stripe of Sky’s kit and finally a new design for women’s bibs and shorts added too.
Rapha also offer a personalised jersey, allowing customers to have their surname and national flag printed onto the replica jersey.
Other goodies are also available; special editions t-shirts, scarves and flags, so you’re not stuck for ways to show your support.
