Cervélo TestTeam unveiled its new kit at the team’s first meeting for the
2010 season in Basel, Switzerland.
“We’re really happy with the new design of the kit,” said Gerard
Vroomen, co-founder of Cervélo. “The Cervélo TestTeam riders are back
in black, making it easy to pick them out of the bunch. While Castelli has
gone more futuristic in its fabrics, the look is updated with the classic bar
across the chest, harking back to the bike industry teams of yesteryear.
Finally, the signature ‘e’ logo on the back really stands out.”
“We’ve gone a lot further this season than simply making cosmetic
changes,” emphasized Steve Smith, Brand Manager, Castelli. “After one
year and almost one million kilometers of testing with Cervélo TestTeam
riders under all conditions—from the wind tunnel to racing in every kind
of weather—the Castelli Tech Labs have made over 60 refinements to
the team’s clothing for the 2010 season.”
Principal performance improvements were developed based on new
Castelli research in aerodynamics and enhanced body-temperature
management in all weather conditions.
Cervélo TestTeam’s debut kit was cycling’s top selling Pro Team kit last
season, according to L’Equipe, (July 26, 09).
