The wet-weather race jacket of choice for Team WIGGINS, featuring a new highly breathable and fully waterproof performance fabric.

Pro Team Race CapeCAD$197.50

Please select an item above

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. 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 »


"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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Pro Team Race Cape Bought this to replace my classic rain jacket. Thought it was a bit snug when trying on, but perfect when on the bike. Used on a number of occasions in terrible wet weather and 100% waterproof. Brilliant bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From a Rapha sceptic Used any number of waterproof tops over the years, finally bought Rapha pro rain cape. Used twice in the last week in freezing Yorkshire downpours and is superb. Slightly thicker material is less fragile than many, totally waterproof, breathes better than any others I have used - will eventually get slightly damp inside with long periods at high intensity, but still keeps you warm. Fit is snug and awesome on the bike with no flapping - small is perfect for me but am only 5'8" and 67kg. Zips on sleeves to allow for winter gloves are genius. Light blue stands out well in low light without being screaming flouro. If you can get over the price would unreservedly recommend.

Where exactly on the sleeve do you cut to create the short sleeves as mentioned in the product information? 

Asked by: Cyclemonkey
Hi, this has a bonded strip above the elbows, if you zoom in on the image you can see the strip, cut below the strip.

Hi, am wearing a size L for the classic flyweight jersey. Should I get the pro team race cape in size XL ?

Asked by: Lim88
A Large Pro Team Race Cape would be a good size choice based on your Classic Flyweight size

Do you have any technical data on the waterproofness of this jacket (e.g. mm hydrostatic head). I'm looking for a jacket for a 3 week long brevet where it will rain heavily at some stage and wondering if this is suitable.   

Asked by: Grant_NZ
This Jacket would be suitable for this endeavour, but the Classic Winter Jacket would be a better choice if you want total waterproofing for prolonged periods of time

I live in rather cold and rainy part of Croatia...Race Cape was my initial choice to order for long winter rides, but can You please advise me, what it's like in comparison to PRO TEAM SOFTSHELL JACKET and CLASSIC WINTER JACKET? thank You!

Asked by: Sasha
The Race Cape is best for High Intensity, Shorter rides in the wet. The Classic Winter Jacket would be the best choice for longer rides in the cold and wet due to the waterproofing and wind protection being highest, while being cut to allow layering underneath that the other two jacket do not

Is this jacket packable? Will it fit into a jersey pocket?

Asked by: YeboahConstrictor
This Race Cape will fold and pack into a rear pocket in most Jerseys, although larger sized garments might be a tight squeeze
