Nalini and Team Cofidis at the UCI World Tour 2020
Renewed also the partnership in the Continental category with Team Total Direct Énergie
In 2020 the longstanding Mantuan sportswear company will once again provide the professional athletes of Team Cofidis, newly promoted to the UCI World Tour circuit, and of Team Total Direct Énergie, a team with a Professional-Continental license, with personalised sports apparel. Nalini created for them the complete competition kit, including bodysuits for time trials, accessories, undershirts and supply bags. Replica kits of both teams can be bought online and in the best stores.
It is recent news the inclusion of Team Codifis in the 20 UCI teams with a World Tour license. The French team will have as its spearhead the Italian Elia Viviani, defending European champion, newly acquired by the team for the 2020 season. The sportswear competition kit created by Nalini includes shirts with short and long sleeves, bibshorts and bibtights, technical underwear, various accessories and supply bags.
Compared to 2019, the new Codifis competition kit sees an increased predominance of the colour red on the shirt shoulders, with black writing instead of the red one used last year. The shorts are now completely red with a black band on the bottom, in place of the shading from red to black used previously. The size has been customized for each athlete in order to achieve perfect ergonomics, aerodynamic and comfort thanks to the supreme attention to detail characterising all Nalini products.
Confirmed also for 2020 the partnership started last year with another French team, Total Direct Énergie, which holds a UCI Professional-Continental license and which, thanks to its victory in the 2019 team classification, will be able to take part in all World Tour 2020 competitions. Among the athletes of this team are noteworthy the names of Niki Terpstra, winner of the Paris-Roubaix 2014 and of the Tour of Flanders 2018, of the French climber Lilian Calmejane and of the Italian Niccolò Bonifazio, an excellent sprinter. The new Nalini competition kit features, once again, an increased amount of red on shoulders and sleeves, the quicker to locate the athletes in the pack.
"Our company’s relationship with the professional teams is really important, it is part of our history, but above all it contributes to the growth of our know-how and it gives new impulse to our research. It is a well known fact that professionals have very demanding needs, they test our products like no one else does and this drives us to keep creating better and better equipment” – comments Claudio Mantovani, owner of Moa Sport, of which Nalini is the top brand – “This year the professionals wearing our sportswear are going to have new specially designed paddings, already present in the summer 2020 collection, and they are also going to have a waterproof jacket and updated protective accessories. We make use of this experience in the creation of our collections, so that our amateur customers may profit from it”.
