The Trek-Segafredo squad has unviled its racing and training kits for the coming season, with the riders due to compete in a reworked red look while using a fluorescent version away from the races.
The kit release marks the start of a new partnership with Santini Cycling Wear, which will supply the clothing for the coming season. “Right from the start of our collaboration I sensed that the people at Santini were very motivated and driven to deliver to Trek-Segafredo a superior quality and service,” said Luca Guercilena, the team’s general manager.
“The fact that we can present today both our training and our racing kit for 2018 is a result of that, and it makes me very proud. I particularly like the new design of both kits, that is very much in line with 2017 but still refreshingly different.”
“Safety is an important issue for Trek-Segafredo,” said its technical director Matt Shriver. “Therefore, we expect our riders as of January 1st to train only in the high visibility clothing, with the Bontrager daytime running lights always on. The red kit will be used solely for racing.”
