Colorado Rapids 2019 'Black Diamond' Away Kit Released

The Colorado Rapids just launched their new 2019 away uniform, which is dubbed the 'Black Diamond' kit.

The name of the jersey is inspired by ski trail signage, where a black diamond signals the highest difficulty the mountain has to offer. In the words of the club, this signifies a challenge that "will require focus, excellence, preparation, and hard work".

In the winter months, and especially on the ski slopes, a Black Diamond run symbolizes the pinnacle of performance. It requires an elevated level of intensity and is matched only by the boldness and passion of the athletes that choose to tackle these ‘expert’ trails.
