Special edition luxury merino jersey

The Peace Race Jersey is a special edition piece from Rapha that commemorates one of the greatest sporting events of the 20th century. Little known by fans of cycling today, the Peace Race was born out of an effort to reunite the war-torn countries behind the Iron Curtain. A two-week-long amateur event that first ran in 1948, the Course de la Paix broadcasted the notion that sporting values could promote unity on a continent torn apart by hate, and national teams from around the world were invited to compete on a route through the Eastern Bloc states of Czechoslovakia, East Germany and Poland. Bike racing would bring back together WWII’s winners and losers, in front of crowds of millions, all as part of the reconstruction of a continent. Notwithstanding the political grandstanding that took place around the race, its competitors were genuine couriers of peace, and Rapha pays tribute to them.

The Peace Race Jersey takes its cue from the jerseys awarded to the race’s lead riders. It comes with the same button-on removable arm warmers provided to help the riders stay warm in the spring weather of eastern Europe. Made of a luxury Sportwool™ merino, the jersey has elegant finishing details with wide-ribbed cuffs and hem, and a high, button-up collar for adjustable comfort. Graphics and insignia inspired by the race are also embroidered onto the jersey.

Rapha has also made an original and extremely limited edition Peace Race board game, which can be added to your basket when purchasing the jersey at checkout. It can only be bought with a Peace Race Jersey, and not as a stand-alone product. Conceived and developed by Herbie Sykes, author of The Race Against the Stasi, the board game is a homage to the riders of the race’s 1952 edition. With a graphic design inspired by the rich visual culture that flourished around the race, players are challenged to compete as national team riders on a ‘race’ from Warsaw to Prague, taking in 12 stages on the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique - Versatile Piece Really enjoy this piece, it's a new staple for my cycling wardrobe here in Colorado. Cold spring mornings with the sleeves on, and sleeves removed post climbing. Fits slightly loose compared to other Rapha products - love the classic styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gear This wool kept warm when we got into the clouds but was cool enough for the valleys as well. The button sleeves were the enjoy of my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Understated elegance Well made jersey with beautiful details inside and out. Fits well and the fabric feels really luxurious. Love the side button up collar design. Quite a unique look these days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful details and fit. The brown/green color is sooo low-key that it doesn't scared off little animals or make little kids cry. The fit is great, keeps me warm and nostalgic on blustery winter rides. The 4-hole buttons is an improvement over the 2 -hole ones of the Lombadia jersey, let's hope the more substantial stitching here hold up longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely piece of retro kit Very comfy jersey, superb retro design, if you like the vintage kit. With all buttons done up on arm bit tight on 14in arms but you can undo some to sort this, only need 2 done to keep in place. Suited to colder days, plenty warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Era specific stying I'm really into these special releases. This jersey is like the description: luxurious. A heavier weight and very soft. Lots of nice details on this piece. If you have bigger biceps, you might try the next size up. Besides a little snugness at the arm warmer junction, the jersey fits great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice retro look Lovely top, retro look. Nice and warm with high collar. Tight at biceps but not overly so, easier to put on without sleeves then attach sleeves afterwards. Sizing a bit bigger than classic top. It's about 2 inches longer font and back. The removable sleeves will be great on spring or autumn days.

I like the brown peace race jersey...but the color name is charcoal green? I looks chocolate brown which I prefer.  So what color is it close too...Brown or Green?  Thanks

Asked by: Robert173
Hi, this jersey is a brown/green mix, falling somewhere between the two colours.

I would also like to know if it is 'brown' like the picture or a 'green' colour? Going to buy one of these but would love a green one.
