The EF Education team are well known for their signature jersey designs that make them stick out from the rest of the peloton. Their usual pink is strong enough that it’s tough to mix up with any other team, even if SD Worx also ride in a predominantly pink jersey.

Rapha and EF Education have combined at both the Giro d’Italia/Giro Donne to produce the below design. A flecked paint spray design that I’ve affectionately referred to as the bus seat during the races it has been seen in!

The Rapha x Palace collection is on sale now but stocks are naturally limited already.

The team used the same Giro d’Italia jerseys as the men’s EF Education-Easypost team at the Giro Donne earlier in July

For the Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes, the team has gone in a different direction. Rapha has combined with Palace to create a design that some will love and some will hate, it will certainly leave an impression.

Every bit of equipment the team uses has been part of this collaboration. The Cannondale bikes have been repainted, the team’s POC helmets feature the designs, WHOOP and Wahoo have also customised their products for the team. And most surprisingly, the team has made some Crocs available in the new distinctive colours.

“I’m just thrilled with the kit that Rapha and Palace Skateboards have designed to celebrate the return of the women’s Tour de France. Women’s cycling has been growing steadily over the past couple of decades, but the return of the Tour de France will accelerate this growth and further our search for equality.

It’s a true honour to have the EF Education-EasyPost men’s team racing their Tour de France in a jersey that celebrates women’s cycling. It’s been a very long road to get to this point, and all of us, the riders, staff and management, realise the significance of this jersey and will be proud to wear it.”
