It's the colour of the letters in their current logo, but they have of course used both black and white variations as well over the years.
Jayco also appears to be using blue a lot, so that might have played a part, too.

Giant and Liv are obviously not title sponsors though, so I assume BEX could easily have asked Alé to design both similar kits or kits that didn't have much blue or purple on them at all, if they had wished to. And I for one wouldn't have had a problem with the men wearing purple either, as long as it isn't too reminiscent of the 1992/93 Fiorentina away kit ;)
I agree nobody should ever have a kit like that Viola away kit.

In terms of looks and also standing out in the blue blue peloton I wish the men were also using the pink. The blue kit is boring
 
I reserve my judgements of team kits until I see them in the peloton. I liked NTT this year until the races began and I couldn't tell them apart from like 7 other teams. BEX this year looks like it'll be pretty distinctive from the heli cam
Guys... please... you gotta stop... :confounded:
First - at some point late November "last year" starts actually meaning "this year", and now "this year" actually means "last year". What kind of crazy NYE parties do you guys attend?

Someone else who gotta stop is UCI, with the new concept of rejecting the jerseys of women cont teams', because of something that's mainly WWT related...

There wasn't even a team called NTT last year.

Kern Pharma might be my favourite so far, if those different shades/reflection qualities work in real life rather than carefully selected pics.

But the stripes look like they are different textures, which seems like it is unlikely to be as aero as it probably should be.

What confuses me about all of this is how when I look at old videos on YouTube there's so many colours. Happy, fun colours. Oftentimes in weird combos and patterns. I don't think any WT kit 2021 rivalled EF giro kit. That one was really special.

The galaxy lions are definitely my favorite this year.

I have never complained about kits before this year lol so don't come for me. I just had to link an old video when the men weren't afraid of pink and pastels.

It's not 2022 until Omloop begins!
 
"How should we showcase the jersey?"
"Just... have one of the riders model it..."
"Naah, too common!"
"Then... put it on a flat surface and take the photos..."
"Boring!"
"Alright, then! Suspend it on a series of wires in front of a black background!"
"Perfect!"
"I... I was joking... :oops:"
Either none of the riders wanted to wear it or they are not vampires as previously thought, but ghosts instead.

I personally think the jersey looks a little too much like a carton of cigarettes.

Decathalon leaked it, so they probably had it listed for sale. Still looks weird.
 
Maybe we need a moaners and complainers thread for Team kits and GT routes. :D
We already have those. This is the moaners and complainers thread for team kits, and there are three moaners and complainers threads a year for GT routes. They're usually called something like "Giro/Tour/Vuelta route rumours" or something like that.

There are a lot of jerseys this year that don't exactly capture the imagination, but on the flip side, apart from the women's teams' obsession with tequila sunrise colours, they are at least going for mediocre kits that stand out and are different from each other, so we can tell who is who from a distance from a helicopter in a rainy one-day race in Belgium in March. That's a damn sight better than 7-8 years ago when everybody was releasing kits in monochrome with a touch of blue here and there, because they looked cool in a corporate launch, but then you had a péloton made up of a dozen teams who all looked identical from a distance, and Lampre.

And then they'll all be wearing black rainjackets. :p
