Dan the ‘Nam Lion Man’

Cyclist Dan Craven became a viral sensation earlier this year when he appeared to be tweeting ‘live’ from within the peloton during the road race in Rio de Janeiro. The wider sporting world took notice of the Namibian, who Rapha had made a special kit to wear in Brazil, and he appeared in newspapers around the world. In celebration of Dan’s Rio adventures and due to popular demand, Rapha decided to release the same cycling jersey and cap worn by the Namibian cycling team.

This is a limited edition version of the Pro Team Aero Jersey, the fastest cycling jersey Rapha has ever made. Redesigned for 2016, it was developed using wind-tunnel sessions with professional riders from Team Sky and then ridden by them – often to victory – at the world’s greatest races. The suit’s front and back fabric is smooth and dense to help improve airflow, while stretch sleeves made of a textured ‘wings’ fabric create ‘turbulent flow’. This breaks up the air where the arms encounter wind resistance, thus enabling more efficient motion. Offset seam-positioning and a minimal number of pattern pieces reduce drag further, as does a close fit. A performance-engineered jersey, in a design celebrating Dan Craven, the ‘Nam Lion Man’.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fan of the race cut. This is my first race cut jersey and I love it. The Namibia kit is most likely the greatest kit I've ever laid eyes on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality I don't try it yet but looks amazing. Sleeve length are longer than normal and that's awesome. I have more rapha jerseys and all are size S and this one suits me size M. If you buy it size up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very unique jersey When I saw Dan Craven riding the Olympic Road Race for Namibia in a Rapha jersey I thought: cool! I was delighted to buy this jersey as I am already a fan of the Pro Team Aero jersey. That said this isn't quite the same: the sleeves are shorter and the fit is definitely tighter; of an already tight fit. Thankfully I'm a have a slim build so that doesn't bother me. It looks great and has all the loverly details I'm accustomed to with Rapha kit. The colours have a real pop and it's certainly different to most jerseys out there. If you want something that bit different and have an amazing story to tell about it then I really recommend this jersey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give this jersey some Justice! Best jersey ever! People say it runs small, but I ordered my usual size XS and it fits perfect. Can you say Race Fit? The jersey is very light and very breathable. Hands down, its my favorite jersey yet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jersey... ... unfortunately too small, although I ordered the same size as my previous purchase. But no worries, my son is very happy with it, an I'm just going to order another one! Cheers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Namibia jersey-mostly great I brought this product a couple of months ago and have worn it regularly ( about three times a week ) it is a comfy jersey that also looks great. It is relatively breathable compared to other top of the line jerseys I have worn. The one main problem for me was the fit and length of the arms. I bought an xs which fitted according to the sizing guide which it did nicely apart from the the shoulders and arms. Since I am a slim build ( similar to that of riders such as Chris Froome ) I have broadsheet shoulders and a skinny waist and arms. I found that the sleeves rose up above my bicep and the seem between the aero mesh and normal favric was about half way between the base of my neck and tip of my shoulder where as in the modelling photos it was closer to the shoulder. Apart from the sizing around the arms for someone of my build it is a great looking jersey that my mates complimented with envy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the colour and storey behind jersey love the colour combination and is good conversation starter, something a bit different to wear now and then instead of the usual. Only reason for four stars rather then five is that it isn't complete aero jersey fit, i own a few other colours in proteam aero and found body to fit the same but sleeve length/fit is noticeably different, it is a fair bit shorter and nowhere as tight. I still love the jersey and is more an observation rather then disappointment.

Just purchased the namibia jearsey, but reading the reviews, the pro aero seems to run small... I purchased the supercross short sleeve in xs last week and fits perfect, could be tighter around the arms though, should I consider the small instead

Asked by: dangarma
Hi, the Super Cross Jersey also has a close fit and we would recommend you choose the same size in the Namibia Jersey.
