THE NEW KIT FOR THE TOUR DE FRANCE
Team Bahrain Victorious unveiled the new design that will characterise its Alé uniform for the upcoming Tour de France.
Inspired by pearls, the graphics pay tribute to Bahrain's rich history in the harvesting and processing of this precious bivalve mollusc product. Known as the 'Pearl of the Gulf', Bahrain has a great heritage rooted in the pearl industry, one of the most flourishing in the region. Indeed, the harvesting and processing of these precious beads has been the backbone of Bahrain's economy for centuries, making it a prosperous trading centre. The pearl-inspired design characterises the new jersey and matching shorts, made by team partner Alé.
The garments are part of the PR.S collection. Maximum aerodynamic research, hi-tech fabrics, flat and riveted seams, racing fit and ergonomic solutions characterise the new jersey.
An ultra-light garment that will offer the team cyclists great breathability and comfort. Played out in shades of pearl grey, the new graphics capture the natural beauty and elegance of these precious gems.
The teal accents, on the chest, sleeves and socks, symbolise the waters surrounding Bahrain; while subtle touches of gold recall the glow of the pearls.
