Italian style inspired by Fausto
In homage to Fausto Coppi, one of the most stylish riders to race a bicycle, Rapha has taken its popular City Pack Jacket and added a number of elegant touches to improve its comfort and style. A new material taken from the Brevet Insulated Gilet and Jacket has been used for the body fabric, providing a slightly glossier feel and look but retaining windproof and showerproof performance qualities. A distinctive rose-silver plated zip and puller echo those used in jerseys of Coppi’s era. Over time, they will develop a lovely patina too. The jacket - which can pack down extremely small for storage in your bag or jersey pocket - has a smart button-up collar with fastener and a microsuede patch on the inside rear of the collar for added comfort. The garment uses internal French seaming for a clean aesthetic and improved durability while a number of logos and motifs inspired by Italian cycling and Coppi hark back to a time when bike racing was rather more stylish and daring.
