I'd love to have something like that these days around here where we're hitting upper 30s and 40 most days! Is there a consumer version that anyone makes?

Sky - now ordering from the International Male catalogue.
It's like a "Hot Tub Time Machine" moment, but with bikes.

In this case colors actually make a huge difference.

Yeah I picked up one of those, but unfortunately bought on the intraweb and got a L (never ever read the sizing recommendations on chainlove) and it's really too long and a bit loose. I'm 5'10" and 165 lbs with a shorter torso. Aslo, didn't love the feeling of the fabric, wouldn't mind just getting something more mesh-like.

Also, I loved the Moa hot weather material that they used in the 2010 tdf? I'm guessing Sky's are the same or similar?

Yeah, lots of crazy Team kit out there! I'm not sure which I prefer more in my collection, the bikes or the kit...

ultyguy: MOA makes the Sky stuff still, so I think that might be the same fabric or an evolution of it..

I was under the impression that SKY kits were made by Rapha this year.

Rapha is the named clothing sponsor but they do not make the pro team kit... just the trendy nonsense for the merchant bankers!
