Jesus Herrada's Kuota Khan in custom colours for Spanish national champs - Gallery

French Pro Continental team Cofidis switched from Orbea bikes to Kuota for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

Also switching teams at the start of the season was Spanish road race national champion, Jesus Herrada, who moved to the French squad after seven seasons at the WorldTour level with Movistar Team.

Herrada won his second national road race title in Soria last June, edging out Alejandro Valverde (Movistar Team) and Ion Izagirre (Bahrain-Merida) by five seconds. To celebrate the victory, Kuota didn't hold back in designing an eye-catching yellow and red frameset for Herrada when he signed for Cofidis in January.

Cofidis pair their Italian Kuota frames with groupsets, wheels, cockpit components and saddles from the Italian brands Campagnolo, Deda and Selle San Marco, respectively.

Cofidis are one of the few professional teams to use tyres from Michelin, while the French link continues with Look Keo Blade Carbon pedals.
