The female peloton moves away from purple but converges on a new theme


Human Powered Health became the third Women’s WorldTour team in a week to release a kit based on a similar palette of orange, pink / red and purple.

The new kit, which will be worn by both the men’s and women’s teams in 2022, is reasonably similar to both SD-Worx’s new headband, which was unveiled on Tuesday, and the new UAE Team ADQ kit, released on Tuesday. last week.

All three feature orange merging with purple and red. It’s similar to the situation in 2021 when SD Worx, Liv Racing, Canyon-SRAM and the WorldTour leader of the peloton all wore shades of purple.

Fans are hoping there is enough to distinguish the three kits when they are actually seen on the backs of the Women’s WorldTour riders.
