The Bahrain Victorious team has unveiled its colors for the 2024 cycling season, giving it a 180-degree turn. The Asian team will now have white as the main color of its jersey, replacing the classic red that has accompanied it in recent years.
Despite the change, the combination of white jersey and black bib shorts is not a strange kit, as it is very similar to the one they wore in the last Tour de France. As explained by the team, "The design retains the striking teal accents that represent the shallow water tones of the 'two seas', famous for their rich pearl beds that surround the kingdom. The gold touches throughout the design are reminiscent of the team's founding in 2017, which perfectly highlights the pearl white design."

The team also changes from navy blue to black, in what they explain is a representation of their commitment to reduce their carbon footprint. In the message of the new kit they emphasize the fact that they are aligned with the UCI to reduce the environmental footprint in the joint objective that there is in the World Tour with the goal in 2030, as is UAE Team Emirates.
