Adidas Colorado Rapids 2021 Away Kit

This is the new Colorado Rapids 2021 away shirt, made by Adidas.

Featuring a color combination that might remind older fans of the classic green kits, the Adidas Colorado Rapids 2021 away shirt combines 'Dash Green' with 'Bold Green'.

Just as its nickname - 'Class 5' represents the most difficult routes in mountain climbing., the finer details of the Colorado Rapids 2021 away jersey pay homage to Colarado's many mountains.

Six of Colorado's 14,000 foot mountains - Grays Peak, Torreys Peak, Pikes Peak, Mt. Bierstadt and Quandary Peak, are represented through topography lines that are applied as a jacquard print on the front and sleeves of the new Rapids away shirt.

The Adidas Colorado Rapids 2021 away shirt is inspired by the roots of the club that was founded 25 years ago, on June 6, 1995. Back then, the MLS club had big names like Carlos Valderrama under contract and wore green primary and white alternative jerseys.

Rounding off the look, 'One Club' is written on the inside neck of the Adidas Colorado Rapids 2021 away shirt, while the 'C96' tag on the front stands for the fact that the club are a founding member of MLS in 1996 as well as it proudly representing the state of Colorado.

Green shorts and mint green socks complete the kit.

The jersey is available to buy online, retailing at USD 130 for the authentic version (USD 90 for the replica).
