Classic merino meets classic design
A slim-fitting merino t-shirt with an exclusive flocked design commemorating the return of Oropa to Italy’s grand tour, the scene of one of Marco Pantani’s greatest rides. Having suffered a mechanical problem at the foot of the climb, his faithful gregari rode a furious team time trial to pace their man back up to the front. Il Pirata overtook 49 riders on his way to victory that day. The typography is inspired by period artwork as seen in photographs and publications of the era.
To maintain and protect your merino products we recommend using Rapha Merino Wash »
Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural cedar extract to help repel moths.
