The ultimate cycling jersey for visibility and endurance
In 2011, a trio of Rapha staff decided to push their limits and enter road cycling’s most historic long-distance event: the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonnée, in which cyclists from across the world battle to ride 1,200km, unsupported, in less than 90 hours. Their adventure was both the spur to create a new jersey designed for endurance riding, and the perfect testing ground for such a garment.
The test riders wore prototypes of what would eventually become the Brevet Jersey on the PBP but also throughout a series of qualifying ‘brevet’ rides – 200, 300, 400 and 600km around the UK, including the length-of-Wales-and-back Bryan Chapman Memorial. Those long days in the saddle tested the endurance of both rider and clothing.
The Brevet Jersey was designed to surpass the demands of the toughest long-distance rides.
"…a great fit and an item that can be worn from dawn until dusk without discomfort."
