You won’t miss Tinkoff-Saxo in the peloton this year.
The team’s 2015 kit sees the yellow of last year’s jersey and shorts replaced by a high-viz design similar to that used by Tinkoff-Saxo at the 2014 Tour de France – with the team’s bikes getting a new lick of paint to match.
Alberto Contador and co will wear the new kit at all races through the year, with Tinkoff-Saxo’s opinion-splitting camouflage jersey and shorts reserved for training.
The team remains on Specialized bikes for the new campaign – but with SRAM groupset components replaced by Shimano. Specialized also continue to supply the team with carbon fibre Roval wheels, while saddles come from Prologo and pedals from LOOK.
The 2015 team bikes, which have a striking fluoro yellow and black colourway, were presented at Tinkoff-Saxo’s pre-season training camp on the Italian island of Sicily.
That’s given new signings Peter Sagan and Ivan Basso the chance to get acquainted with their new machines.
Let’s take a closer look at the team’s bikes for the 2015 season through these behind-the-scenes shots from Sicily.
