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 Loving this jersey... Bought this on looks as it's a little different. Then I almost returned it because I thought the design was impractical for actual riding - not enough ventilation round the neck and quite a heavy fabric, maybe? Cooler weather, though, has made me a big fan of this jersey. The fit is comfortable and the fabric is luxurious, soft, but apparently durable. Usual Rapha touches with the embroidery - the only jersey I own that non-cyclists say good things about!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Autumn Kit! I purchased two of these jerseys to combat to combat the Canberra autumn cold; already it's down to 3 degrees C in the morning and it isn't yet March. Coupled with a Rapha Gilet to break the wind, my bottom line is that these jerseys are spot on for cool-cold and dry riding conditions. As always the Rapha workmanship is of a high standard, and the product is appealing. In this case, ithe style is period Eastern Bloc though not demonstrably so. The fit is good for me. I'm 184 and 75 (a bit short of 12 stone in the old speak), a large fits very well: great rear pockets and room to move. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lovely product I went with an XL as with my pro team jerseys. The fit is tight on the bicep but I do have large arms and it's not uncomfortable. The quality is awesome, it's a beautiful jersey and it fits great. The arm warmers are a perfect fit too if a little fiddly, they fit better than the normal Rapha arm warmers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro Style with Modern Performance This jersey is great for those days with temps in the fifties. The thick merino wool has a great feel and is comfortable over a range of conditions and the removable arm warmers helps to extend the temperature range of the jersey. With the side-button collar there is no option to unzip for better ventilation but with the breathability and moisture wicking of the merino this has not been a problem on the rides where I have used this jersey. The fit seems to be reasonably consistent with most of my other Rapha pieces though this does not have much stretch to it so it probably fits best on skinnier cyclists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stylish! I bought this a mounth ago and I am so happy, becouse the inspiratons of this suit referse to the "race of peace", which is part of history of my country - Poland. The clouth is so stylish, next to which you can not pass indifferently. Of course this is made from merino ;)

Are style & sizing unisex?

Asked by: Equity is vital for peace
Hi, the fit and sizing is for men, but a women could wear this jersey if they sized down.
