Video: Top 10 Pro Team Kits

Video

Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. This is especially true when it comes to the realm of pro team cycling kits. Unlike your standard low-key club team jersey, the pros need to stand out in a crowd. Sometimes that’s a good thing. Sometimes not so much.

Our friends at the Global Cycling Network have put together a fun video about what they think are the top 10 pro team kits of all time, paying homage to the likes of Mapei, Molteni and Rock Racing.

We cant say we agree with all their choices; Z-Peugeot, La Vie Claire, and Ti Raleigh all look like bad art student paintings. But it’s certainly an interesting conversation starter. Have a look and then let us know which you think are the best — and worst — pro team kits of all time.

One thing we can all agree on, though, is that the Footon-Servetto-Fuji kits pictured above should be on any list of all-time worst. What the heck were they thinking?

    Just like to point out that the jersey shown as ‘TI Raleigh’ in the video is not their jersey at all. TI Raleigh was red/yellow and black; the one in the video is in fact a ‘System U’ jersey I believe
