The 2017 design brings a sort of British-Italian fusion. Designed by Richard Pearce, the graphic celebrates the victories in Team Sky’s first 7 seasons. The classic Breton shirt served as inspiration but has been reimagined in a data pattern with each stripe on the Castelli Team Sky Pro Mesh Short Sleeve Baselayer representing a specific Team Sky victory. The short dashes represent one-day races, while the medium-length lines represent multiday stage races, with the number of stages determining the length of the line. WorldTour races are blue lines, while non-WorldTour races are white. Perhaps most significantly, the gaps represent the ambition for future victories.
The pro cyclists Castelli work with know the importance of the right base layer for the conditions. The Castelli Team Sky Pro Mesh Short Sleeve Baselayer is made for the widest range of conditions and is designed to keep you dry in cool to mild temperatures. You can even put it under a Flanders Warm base layer in the coldest conditions.
