Team EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale’s (that’s a mouthful, isn’t it? – ed.) new kit is the first to break cover ahead of the 2018 season and features two distinctive colourways: a bright pink palette for races, with an orange alternative for the training kit.
The Slipstream Sports-owned team endured a difficult time at the back end of 2017, with the Cannondale-Drapac riders (as the team is currently known) competing in the Vuelta a Espana without a confirmed sponsor for 2018 following a late withdrawal of funding. However, EF Education First stepped into the breach at the eleventh hour, and this new kit is the first glimpse of how the team will look.
The race kit design features the distinctive pink colours of the incoming title sponsor over the shoulders, while the team’s classic argyle can be found on the sleeves and bib short cuffs – a nod to Slipstream’s heritage. It will continue to be made by POC in 2018, with branding of the other major sponsors (Drapac, Cannondale, New Balance and Tacx) also featuring.
