Rapha creates the finest cycling clothing and accessories in the world. Designed without compromise for the most discerning rider, Rapha products blend style with optimum performance. A passion for road racing means Rapha is more than just a product company.

Rapha's Rain Jacket – Optimum protection from the worst and wettest conditions
Road tested on the Tour of California route by the Rapha Continental riders, the Rapha Rain Jacket offers the highest levels of performance in wet conditions.Highly water resistant, the jacket is extremely breathable and packs down small enough to fit into a jersey pocket. Offering great protection from the wind it is an ideal outer layer to keep out winter chills.

The jacket has been designed for severe wet weather riding conditions and is a more robust version of Rapha's Stowaway Jacket.Versatile enough to act as a windproof outer on cold days, it packs down small enough to fit into a jersey pocket. The jacket has a slim fit and a dropped tail keeps off road spray. Fully taped seams and neoprene cuffs keep water out at the shoulders and wrists, both traditionally vulnerable areas on a jacket when riding into heavy weather.

To ensure maximum comfort when the going gets tough, special panels under the jacket's arms offer even greater levels of breathability. Inside, the seams are finished in a stylish contrast colour. The jacket has an offset, waterproof zip with a tricot-lined zip guard and lockdown puller. The zipped rear pocket is also waterproof, while reflective Rapha prints appears on the lower back and collar. The cuffs and side panels also have a reflective trim.

Features
- Race fit with long-cut back - Offset zip - Lightweight,stretch fabric shell - Breathable panels under arms - Taped, waterproof seams at neckline and shoulders - Zipped rear pocket - Neoprene cuffs - Reflective Rapha print.

Cross Jersey
The Rapha Cross Jersey has been constructed for the unique demands of the sport. It uses the same Sportwool as Rapha's Lightweight Jersey and has a race fit and side panels in black Sportwool give a slimming appearance. The fabric's eyelet construction is excellent at wicking moisture, keeping you dry while a soft merino inner keeps you warm.

Inspired by the hardy cyclo-cross racers of Europe and North America, the Rapha Cross Jersey has been constructed for the unique demands of the sport. Versatile enough for everday use, it comes in a distinctive green, red and black colourway and uses the same Sportwool as Rapha's Lightweight Jersey. The Cross Jersey has a race fit and side panels in black Sportwool give a slimming appearance. The fabric's eyelet construction is excellent at wicking moisture, keeping you dry while a soft merino inner keeps you warm. A higher collar offers additional protection from the elements.

Specific technical features of the Cross Jersey include a low-profile foam pad, stitched into the right shoulder to protect against the top tube when carrying the bike. The jersey also features a single rear pocket, with an angled zip for easy access. An off-set seam eliminates the risk of chafing. Unique to the Rapha Cross Jersey is a drawstring bag for stowing post-race kit. Large enough to accommodate both the Cross Jersey and Cross Bib Shorts, it is made from brushed polyester and finished with wide red cord. A reflective Rapha logo appears on the outside of the bag.
