Indigo: change menu gradient colours - custom CSS in Helix not working

Featured Lock Resolved Issue

I am trying to change the default gradient colours on the active menu item - the CSS seems obvious, but changing it does not do anything:

.sp-megamenu-parent > > a {
background-image: linear-gradient(100deg, #00d3a7, #02c0d0);

If I set my own colours here, and save this in the Indigo template custom CSS section, whilst the CSS code actually changes, the menu gradient stays the same as the standard template.

Any ideas where I need to be setting my own custom gradient colours so that they apply?

Can share a link visa PM if needed ;)

Many thanks,

Wow this took some finding via searching the template.css file:

.sp-megamenu-parent > li > a:before, .sp-megamenu-parent > li > span:before {
background-image: linear-gradient(100deg, #ED1568, #5D5D5E);
