Canyon will continue to supply the frames, along with Zipp wheels and Sram componets. The kit’s colors and design haven’t changed much from last year, the distinctive dark red remains on the bib and upper section of the jersey. A brighter red is introduced with the Alpecin logo and the lower half of the jersey. The frames remain red, but on the left is the ITT frame with UCI Rainbow livery that will be ridden by Tony Martin for 2017.
