Pro-grade waterproof shell for race conditions
This jacket is designed for high-tempo training and racing in changeable conditions. Made from a three-ply laminate fabric developed exclusively for Rapha, it is both lightweight and durable, while fully-taped seams ensure complete waterproofing. The cuffs now also have zips to make it easier to take the jacket on and off whilst on the bike.
The Race Cape has a slim fit and is cut for dynamic bike positions. The fabric has stretch so keeps its shape when worn over a jersey with loaded pockets. The jacket stows easily into a jersey pocket.

"Rapha makes some bloody good kit and the Race Cape is a prime example. It looks great even in hard-to-pull-off fluoro yellow ('chartreuse' in Rapha-speak) and fit and comfort is superb. Designed with performance in mind - with input from Team Sky - it's snug, with a shorter front so it keeps its shape when you're on the drops. The zip has a storm flap, the cuffs are zipped, it breathes really well and is highly waterproof."

"It’s so high-tech you could shoot yourself to Mars in it, yet so stylish you’d be worshipped as a deity by whatever lives there."
