    New team kit?

    Is Discovery the only PT team to get a new look? Haven't seen anyone else. Their kit before was ugly as hell, this year seems to be much better:

    Liquigas has a hideous new kit.

    I like this one (Link NSFW)

    I can see why. Personally, I find it extremely offensive. There is no way she should be wearing bikini bottoms.

    I bet sales of "Projobs" went up significantly that night.

    I'm guessing these are the winter kits. Although I think they look great I would think that the black would get extremely hot in July.

    So you're saying the black will not get hot in July? I disagree.

    Nobody's saying that, without any other variables, black isn't hotter than white. But cycling jerseys are paper thin and porous to boot. I wore a Caisse jersey all last summer riding, and it was no hotter than my normal team jersey which is blue. I've got a yellow jersey that's hotter than anything else because the material just doesn't breathe enough.

    Fabric material > Fabric color

    Our team has black winter jerseys and white jerseys for summer. Personally, I think the black jerseys are considerably hotter in mid summer than the white. When I wear the black jersey on a sunny day it just cooks my back. Just my personal observation.

    But hey, the folks at Discovery know a heck of a lot more than me about that kind of thing. I'm guessing they thought it through before choosing black for their jersey color. I guess we'll see if it becomes a factor. I'm sure it won't.
