Who ya got?

My votes got to Quick Step (LOVE the all blue) and Slipstream (whatever their new sponsor is...EFS?)

The peloton is gonna be made up of a lot of light blue / seafoam in 2018 and those two kits are gonna stand out, I think.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Meh on the Quickstep. Slipstream is just ugly.

The Lotto-Jumbo yellow will stand out. Same with Sunweb B&W. I see a number of teams in red.

For looks, I'd give it to Sunweb, Movistar and AG2R. All classy kits.

Oh no....Sunweb is by far the most bland kit in the peloton....will simply disappear from coverage.

AG2R - we need a vomit emoji.

The new Movistar kit is good, but with everyone else in similar hues, will be nearly invisible. Plus they lose a trademark look that was well-recognized. From a marketing perspective, I would argue they got it all wrong.

Quikstep, boring.
AG2R, plain ugly.
Lotto/Jumbo, yuck.

Sunweb - my favorite colors, but design is nothing special.

I personally like(not necessarily the teams) - not worried about whether I stand out or not...

Movistar and Astana

FTFY.

I guess a lot of what is driving my thoughts on the kits this year is based more on what will stand out....as noted, in a peloton of light blues and seafoams, so many of these kits are just gonna blend together.

But I do really like the QS kit....love the boldness of that blue and the matching shorts to go along with it. Very sharp, IMO.
