Team Sky has announced its new kit for 2018, showing similarities to the special kit worn during the 2017 Tour de France.

The new kit was produced with Team Sky's Performance Clothing Partner Castelli and will give a whole new look to the riders, but maintaining some of the characteristics that have made the squad recognisable in the peloton.

The white jersey keeps its line on the back of the jersey, as well as the 'data pattern', the series of lines that represent all the team's victories and that have been updated with those of 2017.

In the front, the jersey has the blue band that was part of the design during the squad's first years of racing. "We initially changed to white jerseys for the Tour de France last summer, and it was the feedback from riders and the response from our fans that inspired us to go white for the 2018 season," said Team Principal Sir Dave Brailsford.

"Our ambition is for our riders to have the leading performance clothing in the peloton, and we believe that the 2018 kit is our best yet."

Castelli's Brand Manager Steve Smith praises the cooperation they have had for years. "Since we began our partnership with Team Sky they have embraced new ideas around every aspect of the team kit," he commented. "That attitude has given us the opportunity to work with them to create something unique and different for 2018. Not only does the new kit look great, but we’re confident it will be the best performing Team Sky kit yet."
