Team Garmin-Slipstream Unveils 2009 Team Kit

The new team kit highlights title sponsor Garmin's leadership role, while also bringing attention to Slipstream and its focus on ethical sporting and developing the next generation of American champions.

Designed and produced by Pearl Izumi's Colorado-based Advanced Development Team, the 2009 kits are highlighted by the ultra aerodynamic time trial Speed-Suit. Second skin fit and strategically located, proprietary fabrics work together to create the fastest Speed-Suit ever produced and provide an aerodynamic advantage for riders. And the kit wouldn't be complete without strong argyle elements, including orange shoulders and an orange-dominated Giro helmet - which will be easy to spot in the pro peloton.

"We constantly uncover the best technology and work with the best sponsors to give our athletes the competitive advantage," said Jonathan Vaughters, Director Sportiff of Team Garmin-Slipstream. "Our unique partnership with Pear Izumi ensures that our guys are training and racing with the best kits available. And our signature argyle ensures that they stand out from the pack."

Pearl Izumi works exclusively with Team Garmin-Slipstream on all aspects of team kits, from shorts to jerseys to Speed-Suits, which are custom-made for each athlete and hand-sewn in the team's home state of Colorado.

Despite the change in design of the 2009 kits, Chipotle remains a valuable and significant sponsor of Team Garmin-Slipstream. According to Vaughters, "we are still powered by Chipotle burritos, as we always have been. Chipotle is our secret training weapon."
