Rapha notes that the stripes are narrower and contour around the body. It is certainly one of the most distinctive looks around.

EF Education First-Drapac might have the brightest team kit in the peloton. “From the inception of the team, we’ve always tried to push the boundaries of design and color,” said Slipstream Sports CEO and founder Jonathan Vaughters. Photo courtesy Slipstream Sports “But don’t lose track of the subtle argyle we’ve included,” Vaughters added. “It’s been over a decade of argyle, and we are happy that will continue.” Photo courtesy Slipstream Sports EF Education First-Drapac will also have kits for training with orange highlights.
