Team Sky Race Kit
Team Sky will be the only WorldTour outfit wearing Castelli clothing from January 2017. Castelli will supply Team Sky’s race kit, which will feature a brand new design for the 2017 season. The jersey design represents a mix of British and Italian influences, and the design celebrates every victory from Team Sky’s first seven seasons. The classic Breton shirt served as the inspiration but has been reimagined in a data pattern with each stripe on the jersey, short, mitts, socks and cap representing a specific Team Sky victory. The longest lines are the four Tour de France victories, with Chris Froome’s 2016 victory immediately below the Sky logo on the chest. The short dashes on the jersey represent one day race and stage victories, while the medium length lines represent multi day stage races, with the number of stages determining the length of the line. WorldTour races are blue lines, while non WorldTour races are white. The front of the jersey is made up of victories by 2017 team members with the exception of Sir Bradley Wiggins’ 2012 Tour win which has a special place in Team Sky history.
