Designed specifically for female cyclists, the 2019 Team Sky Women’s Climbers Jersey started life as a lightweight design to make climbing easier thanks to its thin, ventilated fabric. In testing, it turned out to be ideal for any hot weather, and, thanks to its minimal moisture absorption, the perfect layer to go under a Gabba or rain jacket in cooler, wetter conditions.
The inner lining keeps it modest and adds a nice design detail to one of the most technical women’s jerseys ever produced by Castelli.
The new Team Sky kit design will give the team a fresh look in 2019 with the dark ocean blue across the shoulders and collar fading into the black from the chest downwards. The blue shade is inspired by Team Sky’s ongoing commitment to Sky Ocean Rescue, an initiative to help stop plastic waste ending up in the oceans.
On the rear of the jersey, the iconic blue stripe is included in recognition and celebration of the team’s decade in the peloton.
