The riders of Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux will continue to distinguish themselves in the peloton thanks to their new kit, which is presented by Italian brand Nalini this season. For its second year in the World Tour, the team directed by Jean-François Bourlart associates with the clothing manufacturer from Mantova, which is known for being on the cutting edge of technology and for dressing the most prestigious teams and the best riders in the world.
The presence on the sleeves of yellow fluo and navy blue, traditional colors of the Belgian World Team, is combined with a predominance of white on the breast. This new design offers both sobriety and a perfect visibility for the sponsors, with title partners Intermarché, Wanty and Gobert Matériaux in the middle of the kit. The logo of Circus keeps its traditional place on the back of the shorts, just like the one of Tormans on the sleeves in its typical orange color.
The know-how of Italian clothing manufacturer Nalini enabled to allocate a prominent position to new partner Vini Zabù, present on both the left part of the abdominal belt and the left side of the shorts. As an ambassador for the Walloon Region, the team based in Tournai will wear the logo of Wallonia on the left sleeve, the back and the right side of the shorts. Industrial group Technord based in Tournai makes its appearance on the front of the kit, with online employment agency Digital Interim staying on the back.
Just like last year, the breast shows the technical partners of the World Team, namely bike manufacturer Cube Bikes, cycling and leisure shoes DMT, Force helmets and henceforth new clothing manufacturer Nalini, which is also on the back of the shorts and on the back. Just like in 2021, Bière des Amis 0,0% stays visible on the shorts, but moved towards the right leg.
The new kit produced by Nalini worn the whole season by the riders of Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux in the most prestigious races honors the champions in the team. For example, the sleeves of Alexander Kristoff show champion bands referring to his European title from Herning 2017, just like the ones from his compatriot Sven Erik Bystrøm, South-African Louis Meintjes, Hungarian rider Barnabás Peák est Estonian Rein Taaramäe, former national road race champions. The last named rider is the reigning national time trial champion and will wear a Nalini time trial suit in Estonian colors.
Nalini is an Italian clothing manufacturer founded on the passion of the brothers Vincenzo and Claudio Mantovani in the sixties. With a special care for details, Nalini went through the cycling history dressing great champions like Fignon, Bugno, Chiapucci, Indurain or Pantani, thanks to the ongoing follow-up on the technical innovations to stay on the cutting edge of textile modernity. Nalini is a brand of factory MoaSport, which is still directed by Claudio Mantovani and produces its clothing line in its historical headquarters of Castel d’Ario (Mantova) to always defend « Made in Italy ».
