    Rapha are probably charging people a tenner just to look at it.

    There was a shot of someone wearing the Rapha Sky shorts a few days ago.

    I'm thinking of buying a Rapha item at the moment, but my loathing of Sky is holding me back somewhat.

    Any linky???
  • sky are contracted with existing supplier until the 1st so rapha can't go public until then. So how much do we reckon for shorts or jersey?

    My Guess:

    Shorts £180
    Jersey £150

    and there will be plenty of suckers ready to splurge

    I'm struggling to understand what everyone expected.

    Team Sky's colour is black. Team Sky's style of kit is minimalistic.
    Rapha's colours are black and white. Rapha's styling is minimalistic.

    This was never going to be another Mercatone Uno.

    Not too impressed myself but we don't know what the design brief was. It was obvious it was going to have an arm band of some description as that's as much a Rapha thing as Nike's swoosh or Adidas' stripes. At least the old kit had the stripe down the back which helped identify Sky in the peloton but nothing distinctive on this kit.

    Are there any pictures of the back yet?

    The white on the back of the old kit was a good idea IMO. With your back facing upwards towards the sun it was good at reflecting heat away and with the blue line it made SKY nice and easy to spot on telly in the helicopter shots.

    It was never going to change that much. Team kit is for the team. Looks better than the Adidas kit but as a design .....personally the whole kit needs looking at and that isn't Rapha's job.

    Can you imagine the fuss if they had changed the colours like Cardiff City did or try telling Manchester United they will be playing in black and white?

    Will look forward to seeing the back of the shirt. It hasn't got much love on Facebook!but it is what it is. Should be better made but I don't wear team kit.
  • Hmmmm. :|

    The national champs arm band looks weird with the blue arm band. The blue arm band is perhaps a little too thick. It makes it look like a captain's arm band/medical arm band/like they've taken up UN peacekeeping or joined the EU Border Force.

    Let's wait and see what the back looks like.

    If they've lost the blue line thing with the pseudo-inspirational twaddle completely then what is that numpty who got the tattoo going to think?

    In fact that may be the one good thing about this kit. :wink:

    Anyway happy new year to all!

    When are we going to see the NEW kit?

    can't argue about its advertising platform but design wise it lacks class .
    Whats the solution? Just pedal faster you baby.
