Pro-grade waterproof shell for race conditions
With a newly refined fit, this jacket is designed for high-tempo training and racing in changeable conditions. Made from a three-ply laminate fabric developed exclusively for Rapha, it is both lightweight and durable, while fully-taped seams ensure complete waterproofing. The cuffs now also have zips to make it easier to take the jacket on and off whilst on the bike.
The Race Cape has a slim fit and is cut for dynamic bike positions. The Fabric has stretch so keeps its shape when worn over a jersey with loaded pockets. The jacket stows easily into a jersey pocket.

"Where the fleece and wind-blocker membrane double up, the jacket remains extremely thin and light, but still does a good job of keeping you warm. All this makes for a very versatile piece of clothing. With a heavy base layer it will be enough (in the dry) down to around six or seven degrees, with a thin, sleeveless string base layer – and the zip partially undone – you can use it up to 14-15 degrees. With a rain cape over the top it will be enough in even colder weather."

"It’s so high-tech you could shoot yourself to Mars in it, yet so stylish you’d be worshipped as a deity by whatever lives there."
