MTN-Qhubeka revealed its new kit last night and it's what you might call, 'an acquired taste.'
The Newcastle United/Juventus/Notts County style kit features some very prominent black and white stripes, which will look very distinct when the African team rides out next season.
They certainly won't having the same similarity issues as Movistar's new outfit has, as the MTN kit couldn't be much more different to the suave black and yellow kit (opens in new tab) they were sporting last year.
There's still a dash of of the team's distinctive yellow on the new kit, with the MTN logo and the huge 'é' logos on the arms of the jersey, as the team have switched from using Trek bikes to Cervélo for the 2015 season. The rear of the jersey features the huge yellow 'Q' symbol of title sponsor Qhubeka, just because it needed that bit more to be distinctive...
The Pro Continental team signed some marquee riders for next season, including Edvald Boasson Hagen Team Sky, Tyler Farrar from Garmin-Sharp, Australian rider Matt Goss (Orica-GreenEDGE) and Britains Steve Cummings (BMC), making it look as though MTN could have their best season yet.
The new signings perhaps hadn't seen the kit before they signed on the dotted line, but on the plus side (and we hate to keep banging on about it), no white shorts.
Let us know what you think of the new MTN-Qhubeka kit in the comments below.
