Argyle is (mostly) out and the classic black look of the now-defunct Cervelo Test Team is in. Garmin did more than just bring Thor, Haussler, etc., and Cervelo in as a co-sponsor; they took on much of the identity of the fallen squad. A few touches of argyle remain on the collar and cuffs as an homage to the team’s history, but otherwise you’d think that Cervelo brought in Garmin, not the other way around. No word on if they’ll pull out a white kit for the Tour de France as Cervelo did the past two years (cuz you know, it’s kinda hot in July.)
Verdict: A nice look, but dissapointing to see the Slipstream identity be so minimized.
