A new team with bold ambitions needs an equally bold kit. With their all-for-one-and-one-for-all tactical philosophy, canyon//sram plans to challenge conventions in the women’s peloton next year, and Rapha has developed a design for them to get noticed at the front of the races. This isn’t a kit to hide in, but canyon//sram don’t want to hide. As the world’s fastest prepare to show their racing colours in 2016, we’re confident this is just the beginning.
Women will be able to get their hands on the new canyon//sram kit in March 2016.
A wider collection, including a men’s edition, will be available in 2017.
Inspired by the tessellated effect of layered hazard tape, the Rapha kit design announces a powerful team that the rest of the women’s peloton will be wary of. Following the cues of the Rapha Data Print design, Rapha continues to set the trend with a striking design that has been used all through canyon//sram’s bikes and other equipment too, unifying the look of the team.
New beginnings always offer promise. Rapha travelled to Mallorca in December to join canyon//sram at their first training camp together, and while the off-season is a time of relative calm, the team’s excitement for 2016 was palpable.
