Cycling is one of sport’s most colourful spectacles and the sheer quantity of different designs in the peloton is one of the main reasons for that.
Kit designers also find a lot more freedom in cycling, but also have to contend with more commercial pressures than other sports.

That means that over the years we’ve seen countless designs.
