Rapha (United Kingdom) - Press Release: Now's the time.
Picture perfect rides always seem to have a summery backdrop. The most satisfying, however, require much more wintry weather. With a resolute attitude and the right kit, riding despite the weather is often better than riding because of it. The greater the effort, the greater the reward.
Beautiful kit for ugly conditions:
Bad weather dampens everyone’s desire to ride but don’t be deterred. To counter the cold and ward off the wet, we have a range of warm and waterproof pieces in bright new colours to help you love the season you’re in.
Souplesse Training Jacket:
A 3-layer Polartec front panel protects against cold air and keeps the wind at bay while a fleece-backed Thermoroubaix back panel boosts breathability during harder efforts. Winter training, ticked off.
Core Winter Jacket:
Cold weather riding is about getting the basics right. This warm, weather-resistant jacket is ideal as an outer layer in dry conditions or as an insulating mid-layer when riding in cold, rainy conditions.
Core Rain Jacket II:
Made of a waterproof yet lightweight fabric, the Core Rain Jacket II is the ideal outer layer for rides with a chance of rain and wind. It folds down small to comfortably fit in your back pocket, ready to be whipped out when it starts to rain or the wind gets up.
Women’s Core Long Sleeve Jersey:
Well suited to cooler rides at the start of autumn and snowy slogs in the middle of winter, this versatile jersey uses a thicker fabric that balances breathability and insulation, with plentiful pocket space for extra supplies.
Pro Team Thermal Jersey:
Slow base miles aren’t for everyone. For those who refuse to be bowed by even the worst weather, this insulating thermal jersey is designed to keep you warm without compromising on the ‘race’ fit of your summer kit.
