Etixx - Quick-Step Reveals 2015 Jersey!
Etixx - Quick-Step has revealed the new jersey of 2015! The jersey will continue with the theme of black and blue, which have been staple colors of the team since 2012. However, Vermarc, one of the most prestigious and loyal partners of Etixx - Quick-Step, designed a modern jersey that focuses on performance, comfort, and also distinctness in the peloton. Furthermore, the 2015 Etixx – Quick-Step jersey design emphasizes sponsor visibility.
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 s.r.o. the GreenWay logo will be displayed representing the GreenWay project by janom s.r.o.— a new era in electro-mobility for commercial purposes.
Also new to the sponsors present on the 2015 kits is Klein Constantia, on the upper left chest. Dating back to 1685, Klein Constantia has been described 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 of Gent.
"I really like the new jersey, " Etixx - Quick-Step rider Iljo Keisse said. "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 a photo shoot and it looks really nice. As it is every year with our outfits by Vermarc, 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," Etixx - Quick-Step rider Mark Cavendish said. "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 as we are as a team."
