World-Tour proven waterproof shell

On hard rides or races in changeable conditions riders need a breathable and waterproof outer shell that will protect them from the worst of the weather and won’t cause them to overheat. The Rapha Pro Team Race Cape is that garment.

This season’s updated version is made of a new performance fabric by Polartec that is both highly breathable and offers superior protection from the elements. Also new for 2016 is a small zip pocket on the left side of the jacket, for easy access to an energy bar or gel.

A favourite garment of pro racers such as WIGGINS’ Owain Doull, who says it “almost feels like a normal jersey”, the Race Cape is tailored for a close ‘Pro Team fit’ and has extra features such as zipped cuffs and fully-taped seams. The jacket packs down into a compact bundle and fits in a jersey pocket.

A dropped tail keeps road spray off of the back of your jersey, and the fabric has a slight stretch to allow the jacket to keep its shape over fully-loaded pockets.

The zip has a textured puller for easy use when wearing gloves, and the zipped cuffs make it easy to remove the jacket while on the bike, as well as providing ventilation. The cape also has a bonded strip at the elbows for you to cut around, if you prefer your waterproof short-sleeved.

N.B. To maintain and protect your waterproof products we recommend using Rapha Apparel Re-Proofer »

Reviews:

"Rapha makes some bloody good kit and the Race Cape is a prime example. It looks great even in hard-to-pull-off fluoro yellow ('chartreuse' in Rapha-speak) and fit and comfort is superb. Designed with performance in mind - with input from Team Sky - it's snug, with a shorter front so it keeps its shape when you're on the drops. The zip has a storm flap, the cuffs are zipped, it breathes really well and is highly waterproof." - Cycling Plus, March 2015

How is this cut compared to the rain and wind jackets?

Asked by: Chas270
Our Pro Team Race Cape is cut with a streamlined sillouhette that has a longer tail and shorter front to facilitate riding in the drops, while the Classic Rain and Wind Jackets have a more relaxed fit
