Slipstream Sports, LLC, today unveiled its 2011 Team Garmin-Cervélo team kit. As before, the kits are manufactured by Italian apparel company Castelli.
However, we really doubt that this version will be as popular as the Test Team Cervelo jersey, which according to Castelli employees, was copied by Taiwanese manufacturers before it even hit a team rider’s back.
How did Castelli management know? The front and back of the original Castelli-made jerseys were different: on the copies the front and the back were identical.
Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Director Sportif of Team Garmin-Transitions announced the new business cooperation between Garmin and Cervelo in late August 2010, at the same time that he announced a new professional women’s cycling team under Slipstream Sports.
