“A thing of beauty,” according to The Times. “The best road jacket money can buy,” said Cycling Plus. This high-performance cycling jacket is designed for tough winter road riding. Windproof, water resistant and highly breathable.


The ultimate cycling jacket

Test ride any of Rapha’s Classic products to destruction and if you are not 100% satisfied within 30-days you can return them for a full refund.

A high-performance jacket for tough winter road riding. Originally launched in 2004 – and part of the Rapha range ever since – today it is acknowledged as the world’s finest road riding jacket. Conceived as an all-day outer shell that was windproof, highly breathable (and didn’t involve fluorescent Lycra), the jacket has won numerous plaudits and the latest incarnation includes improved cuff bindings. Versatile enough to be worn in all but the warmest conditions, if you’re looking for the one Rapha product to start restocking your riding wardrobe, this is it.
