Goodbye to the boys in black and blue
After four world-beating years together, Rapha will stop providing Team Sky with racewear from 2017. To celebrate the successful partnership and the hundreds of special victories enjoyed together - including 3x Tours de France, Monuments and Classics - Rapha has made a limited edition version of the Classic Jersey II. Special features include several hand woven roundels stitched into the back of the jersey which denote specific race wins over the last four years, as well as the name of every Team Sky rider who raced in Rapha printed onto the armband.
The construction and fit of the jersey is the same as the Classic Jersey II, which is a new generation of Rapha’s iconic jersey, reworked for 2016. Cut from RPM 150, a new merino-based fabric, it is lighter, softer and more breathable. The jersey also has a reworked fit and reduced bulk. This is for all the boys in black and blue - thanks for the memories.
