Team Etixx-QuickStep Unveils 2015 Team Kit
The Belgian team will continue its use of the light blue and black theme, which have been used by the team since 2012. However, for 2015 the team will change its name from Omega Pharma-QuickStep to Etixx-QuickStep and will also change its clothing design in the process.
Omega Pharma as a title sponsor on the center chest of the jersey is replaced by the name Etixx, and on the right sleeve of the team's jersey, instead of Janom, the GreenWay logo will be displayed in order to promote Janom's GreenWay project.
Also new to the sponsors promoted on the 2015 team kits is Klein Constantia, featured on the upper left chest. Dating back to 1685, Klein Constantia has been described by some as one of the world’s most beautiful wine estates. Located in Constantia Valley near Cape Town it is set on the foothills of the Constantiaberg mountains, Klein Constantia is custodian to some of the most historic vineyards in South Africa.
The new Etixx – Quick-Step outfit was worn for the first time by Mark Cavendish and Iljo Keisse during the recent six day track race in Gent.
Commenting on the new team kit for 2015, Etixx - Quick-Step rider Iljo Keisse told Roadcycling.com "I really like the new jersey. It’s fresh, with a really nice balance between the black and the blue colors that represent our team. I had the chance to wear it for the photo shoot and wear it in the six day race in Gent and it looks really nice. The material has a great combination of comfort and performance. I think this jersey will look sharp in the peloton next year."
"It’s like the classic two-toned kit of the last season,” Team Etixx - QuickStep rider Mark Cavendish explained. "The sponsors are really well-accommodated with this design. Whatever the color, I am proud to put on the colors of Etixx - Quick-Step anyway. But I believe this jersey will be nice to ride in. The jersey is evolving in good ways every year just like we are as a team."
