Core Rain Pack
Cycling jersey cut using a soft, light stretch fabric. It is shaped to fit the body perfectly in road-bike positions, with raglan sleeves and side panels for stability. Colour-matched throughout, the jersey uses high-spec finishing details, such as ribbed collar and cuffs, a concealed zip pocket and a deep, laser-cut rear gripper lined with soft silicone. Made of a fabric that has been treated with an antibacterial process, the jersey stays fresher for longer during your rides. With subtle Rapha branding and a low-profile left armband, the Core Jersey includes only the essentials.
Core Rain Jacket
The Core Rain Jacket is the ideal outer layer for rides with a chance of rain and wind. Extremely lightweight, it folds down small to comfortably fit in your back pocket, ready to be whipped out when it starts raining or the wind picks up. Colour matched throughout, the jacket has a clean, refined finish with collar tipping and a subtly stitched-in Rapha armband.
The jacket has fully taped seams and an AquaGuard® zip for waterproofing. Six ventilation holes under the armpits allow heat to escape if you’re riding hard while the on-bike fit is aided by an adjustable draw cord at the hem and elasticated inner cuffs, which ensure a perfect fit on your wrists. Reflective elements have also been applied to the sleeves and rear for improved visibility on the roads.
Core Bib Shorts
Simple, quality bib shorts to complement any ride, the main panels use a dense-knit fabric for support and modesty and laser-cut leg grippers lined with soft silicone for a close, comfortable fit. The bib section uses high-stretch material, machined efficiently for even distribution of stretch and to accommodate longer torsos. Flatlock seams are positioned carefully throughout to hold the shorts in place without chafing. The shorts are available in an entirely black colourway, or with a white bib section to prevent straps showing under a light-coloured jersey.
“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”
