In an unprecedented turn of events, new Ireland based Pro Continental team Aqua Blue Sport have revealed their new kit and it's not aqua blue.

Not to be pinned down by any colour based branding, the team have revealed a stylish blue and gold number that'll be worn by their new riders, including British national champion Adam Blythe, Andy Fenn and Lars Petter Nordhaug from Team Sky, as well as Irish pair Matt Brammeier and Martyn Irvine.

In homage of their Irish routes, the kit features a gold shamrock on the chest and on the rear of the shorts.

The kit has been produced by Belgian clothing brand Vermarc, who also make kits for WorldTour teams Quick-Step and Lotto-Soudal.

Aqua Blue hope to feature in some WorldTour races in the 2017 season, including in Milan-San Remo and the Amstel Gold Race.

“We're excited to reveal our team kit, bringing together many of the ideals that drive our team; our Irish heritage, our pursuit of excellence and our determination to bring a new model of stability and self-sustenance to professional cycling,” said team found Rick Delaney.


“To see a team rider wearing our colours, shortly after confirmation of our registration for 2017, is a dream come true for me but also just the beginning of the journey for Aqua Blue Sport. The next step is to seeing the jersey on our riders in competition.”
