Cannondale-Garmin lightens up with a special Tour de France jersey
The argyle squad will race in a limited edition team jersey for the 2015 Tour de France, created by its innovative Italian clothing partner, Castelli.
The new jersey retains the distinctive Cannondale and Garmin logos, but reverse black with Cannondale’s signature shade of green. The signature Slipstream Sports argyle is prominently displayed in blue on front and back.
“We’re really excited about the Tour de France kit,” said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports “The lighter color is perfect for hot weather and our signature argyle is more prominent.”
Castelli has multiple times in the history introduced new clothing for the Tour de France.
“We consider the Tour de France a very special event that deserves a special design,” said Steve Smith, Castelli Brand Manager. “This team is rider-centric, and Castelli has done its part to make sure the riders have the most comfortable and technically advanced clothing for this big event. Racing in hot weather is physically demanding, that’s a given, and despite the fact that Castelli makes some of the lightest and coolest fabrics in existence, wearing a lighter color will make a big difference, both psychologically and physically, to a rider’s well being,” explained Steve Smith.
The limited edition Cannondale-Garmin Tour de France kit will be available early July at Castelli-dealers and shopslipstreamsports.com
