Smart city tailoring in revolutionary Shadow fabric
A smart city blazer made from Rapha’s revolutionary Shadow fabric, providing sharp style combined with comprehensive weatherproofing.
Shadow fabric was the result of extensive testing by professional riders and featured a revolutionary woven material, pre-treated with water resistant coating and then shrunk 50% to increase density and prevent water penetration. The result was an almost completely waterproof, highly breathable fabric. A lighter-weight version of this fabric has been used in the Shadow Blazer, creating a tailored garment that is windproof and water resistant and will transition the wearer from bike to office in total comfort.
Taped seams, branded snap buttons to neck for multiple styling options, two zip pockets to the front, internal zipped passport pocket, internal phone pocket, zipped credit card pocket to the left sleeve. Hi-vis tab with reflective branding to the rear of the collar. Microsuede fabric has been inserted inside the neck for comfort while mesh fabric to the upper inside back and laser cut holes to the armpits aid ventilation.
