A highly technical, waterproof jacket cut for race conditions.

Pro Team Race CapeA$260.00

Please select an item above

Pro-grade waterproof shell for in-race protection

When setting out for a hard ride or race in changeable conditions, riders need a robust and simple outer shell that will protect them from the worst of the weather and that doesn’t add unnecessary bulk.

The Rapha Pro Team Race Cape is designed to do just this, using a lightweight and durable three-ply fabric developed exclusively for Rapha, race-ready tailoring that stops fabric flapping in the wind, and smart finishing touches such as zipped cuffs and fully-taped seams. It easily packs down to stow in your back pocket.

The Pro Team Race Cape has a slim fit, cut for the long-and-low riding positions of modern racers. A dropped tail keeps road spray off of the back of your jersey, and the fabric’s slight stretch allows the jacket to keep its shape over fully-loaded pockets. The updated zip has a thick pull tab with a textured back for easy use when wearing gloves, and the zipped cuffs make it easier to put on or remove the jacket while on the bike. The jacket packs down to the size of a jersey pocket and includes a bonded strip for you to cut around, if you prefer your waterproofs short-sleeved.

N.B. To maintain and protect your waterproof products we recommend using Rapha Apparel Re-Proofer »

Reviews:

"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." Cycling Plus, March 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice race cape Picked this up recently. Only had one chance to use so far as weather has been mild. Pleased overall. I sized up as other reviews suggested and I'm happy I did. Going up a size allows for a bit of layering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a jacket Superb fit, especially like the zips on the sleeve cuffs. Feels like just another layer rather than a waterproof such is the design and cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best jacket for rainy days A great jacket that holds your body dry even when it's pouring down. When not needed, you can easly tuck it into your back pocket. The zippers on the sleeves are a brilliant detail that helps you put it on or take it off.

I was wondering if you could elaborate on the differences between the race cape (2015) and the Rapha Hardshell. I understand it's thinner. Is it more breathable? Is it more waterproof? I damaged my hardshell and am looking for a suitable replacement. 

Asked by: Ankurrius
Hi, the Pro Team Race is designed as a highly waterproof outer shell for wet conditions. It is not intended for insulation and can be easily stowed in a pocket, ready for use if you are caught in a shower. The Rapha Hardshell is more a workhorse winter jacket, that keeps you warm and dry in wet conditions. The cut is also more relaxed on the Hardshell than the Pro Team Race Cape, which has a close, race ready fit.

I am 6'4" 195lbs and my chest is 43" do you suggest going down to the large or up to the XL?

Asked by: ChuckO
Hi, The Pro Team range has a close fit so we would recommend you choose the XL in this item.

What is the minimum temperature Recomend for this jacket? 

Asked by: RUEDACYCLING
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advise on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect it's properties. The Pro Team Race Cape is designed to be worn for a hard ride or race in changeable conditions. It is a lightweight and breathable fabric that may not be suitable for very low temperatures.

Is the color the same as the current Pro Team Climber's jersey in light blue (celeste) or is it more like the Belgian jersey from a few years back (true light blue). I have both and I'm trying to calibrate your color scale with mine.

Asked by: Argus
Hi, the Light Blue Pro Team Race Cape is more similar in colour to the Belgain jersey. Please note, the Belgain Jersey is a slighter darker shade of blue.

Is there velcro on the wide section of stormflap? Is the zip two way?

Asked by: Argus
