Team Sky will continue to wear Castelli cycling kit for racing and training until at least the end of the 2019 season, following the three-year partnership announced at the end of the 2016 season.
Henri Lloyd specialises in technical sailing apparel, as well as offering a range of casual and lifestyle wear. Team Sky staff and riders will be equipped with the Henri Lloyd Sport line, a collection of “transitional and multi-activity performance apparel.”
Like Team Sky, the British clothing brand is based in Manchester.
On the announcement, Team Sky’s principle, Dave Brailsford, said: “Henri Lloyd understand elite performance needs and they work with those who have to be at their best in extreme environments, from the America’s Cup through to Formula One.
“They are continually looking for advancements and new solutions to the same challenges that we face as we race and train in all conditions around the world.
“We are excited to begin collaborating with Henri Lloyd, sharing and benefiting from their knowledge and working together to ensure Team Sky stay ahead of the competition.”
The partnership takes over from Under Armour who provided the team’s off-bike wear for the 2017 season.
