Orica-GreenEdge has unveiled its 2014 team kit, made for the Australian squad by Swedish clothing manufacturer Craft.
The broad central green band and white panels on the sides have gone, replaced with a thinner green strip and a plain dark blue panel beneath. In all, it's a more subtle take on the kit without being wildly different.
Both the men's WorldTour team and women's Orica-AIS squad get the new kit, which will get its race debut at the forthcoming Australian national road championships.
"We're really pleased with the new kit and look forward to putting it into action at the Nationals this week and when we kick start our third season in the WorldTour at the Santos Tour Down Under," said Shayne Bannan, Orica-GreenEdge general manager. "We're excited to start a new season with a brand new look."
Craft will supply the team with all of its racing, training and leisure clothing for 2014.
Orica-GreenEdge fields a very strong team at the Tour Down Under, starting on January 21. Simon Gerrans, Daryl Impey, Luke Durbridge, Matt Goss, Matt Hayman, Michael Matthews and Simon Clarke make up the team's line-up in the opening WorldTour race of the season.
Both the women's and men's teams get variations on the new kit

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
