Astana made a big change to the team’s kit for 2017. The Kazakhstan-registered squad has darkened its kit getting rid of the sky blue shorts in favour of black. The jersey fades from sky blue to black as it approaches the hem.
It is the first major change of the kit since 2010 for Astana, when the squad shifted to predominantly teal blue jersey and shorts.
Astana also revealed its new Argon 18 bikes. The Canadian company jumps up to the WorldTour after two years of supplying Pro Continental squad Bora-Argon 18.
