The Colorado Rapids have introduced their special “Black Diamond” kits. When it came time for inspiration to design the kits the team wanted to connect with the fans of Colorado the best way possible and used the mountains as their inspiration.
“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. At the Rapids, we constantly strive to represent our state in a way that would make any Coloradan proud. Our jersey is an extension of the club and helps to celebrate the proud culture and connection to our home.” - Colorado Rapids
The base cloud white color for the kit is a nod to snowcapped mountains around the Mile High City. We see angled silver and burgundy lines that are meant to reflect the boldness, passion and intensity of the Black Diamond ski run. On the back of the jersey we see the Colorado C from the state flag. The state flag itself is embossed on the front of the lower tag giving another nod to the state of Colorado.
