CCC, Sunweb and QuickStep reveal new kits for 2019

Plenty of change not only in designs but also sponsors

Team Sunweb, Deceuninck-QuickStep and CCC Team are the three latest teams to present their jerseys for the 2019 season and there has been plenty of changes. 

Tom Dumoulin's Sunweb team has turned away from its usual black and white number with an all-new red jersey for 2019. Still retaining the racing stripes, now in white, the jersey fades into black bibshorts. 

The slick kit is now made by technical manufacturer Craft, which takes over from Exteondo, and includes the logo of new bike sponsor Cervelo.

The absence of Giant bikes means that Team Sunweb have also changed helmet provider now opting for Belgian brand Lazer. 

There is also the absence of a Mini logo on the jersey as Team Sunweb will be changing car sponsors for 2019, although a replacement is yet to be announced.

Like Team Sunweb, CCC Team got the faded jersey memo and has incorporated the tonal to its orange kit for 2019. Unfortunately, the team has opted for black shorts instead of matching orange.

Taking the space of BMC Racing in the WorldTour, the former ProContinental Polish team has retained its distinctive orange look for next season in a simple yet stylish new jersey. 

The kit is manufactured by Exteondo, which provides a great sense of balance considering the Basque brand produced the orange kits of Euskadi-Euskaltel for most of its tenure. 

New bike manufactures Giant get pride of place on both shoulders while charity UNICEF also comes aboard as sponsors to complete a cleanly designed kit.

Finally, the kit of Decueninck-QuickStep has also been revealed. There is little change in terms of design with the Belgians retaining the block blue with white stripe but the biggest change is the position of sponsors. 

Decueninck Windows has now been given pride of place on the chest pushing Quick-Step Floors further down the jersey. Non-alcoholic Belgian beer company Maes 0.0% also gets a prime position in between the shoulders of the jersey while Lidl occupies the shoulders. 

Belgian manufacturer Vermarc is retained for another season while the world's most successful team by wins also returns to Specialized bikes.

The first opportunity we will get to see all of these kits in one place will be at next month's Tour Down Under which kickstarts on Tuesday 15th January in the southern Australian city of Adelaide.
