Team Leopard Trek reveal race kit
New ProTour squad go for subtle styling
New ProTour outfit Team Leopard Trek, home to Fabian Cancellara and the Schleck brothers, have passed up the opportunity to deck themselves out in full animal print and gone for a race strip that’s altogether classier.
The Craft-made kit is black and white with a blue band around the chest. Here in the road.cc office, we can’t decide whether it’s Cambridge blue or duck egg blue. Oli has gone leftfield by claiming it’s teal – but he’s wrong.
Team Leopard Trek have eschewed the traditional ‘mobile billboard’ approach too, and the sponsors’ logos are, shockingly, fairly subtle… from the front, at least. That said, you won’t be left in any doubt who the title sponsor and bike suppliers are when it comes to side-on shots. Each rider gets his name printed on the neck too.
It looks pretty cool to us. We’re giving it a thumbs up for style.
