There was a time when a black cycling kit was deemed boring and less interesting than the brightly colored ones. These days the black kit is the rage. Forget the ‘why cycling shorts should be black’ debacle years ago. Black shorts can be extremely sexy and even revealing as the Sky kit has proven. Moreover, the other black kit in the UK, Endura Racing, is also a well made black kit sporting a shinier black lycra. After a few years in hiatus, black is back.
