Race proven waterproof shell

On hard rides or races in changeable conditions, riders need a breathable and waterproof outer shell that will protect them from downpours but won’t cause them to overheat. The Souplesse Race Cape is constructed from a breathable and waterproof three-layer Polartec fabric to ensure it meets those demands. It features a small zip pocket on the left side allows easy access to an energy bar or gel, and the VISLON zip with textured puller lets you zip up or down with ease. This jacket was developed for unparalleled performance at the highest level, and was originally worn by Rapha’s sponsored teams in 2016 and 2017. Other technical details include a dropped tail to keep road spray off your rear, and the fabric has a slight stretch to allow the jacket to keep its shape over loaded pockets. A packable, WorldTour-proven winner.

FEATURES

  • High performance three-layer laminate fabric by Polartec is both highly breathable and offers superior protection from the elements

Body sizing

After washing the Race Cape with gentle program, the pale turquoise still shows traces of dirt on the back. Could you please advice on how I can let disappear this without damaging the waterproofness?

Asked by: Sylvie rcc
Hi, as the fibers of the Race cape are an oil based polymer, separating an oil based residue is not always possible as they are the same on a molecular level. Using normal non-bios leaves a residual layer on the products that absorbs moisture and traps the dirt within it. Our apparel wash does not leave a residue and thus, something for the dirt to cling to. We suggest to use a sports wear wash specific and to ensure to re-proof the garment after wash.

I would love a rain jacket/ jersey Been eyeing the shadow jersey Can you tell me major differences In this and shadow?

Asked by: Catherine cc
Both products are Waterproof but whereas the Race Cape contains a breathable and waterproof three-layer Polartec fabric to keep you dry the Shadow collection has a very different technical approach. The fabric used in the Shadow range features a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, applied twice during the manufacturing process, making it ‘hydrophobic’ – water simply rolls off. The stretch-weave adds compression to create a race fit and micropores allow heat to move across the fabric membrane and away from the body, helping to regulate your temperature. With a soft, brushed inner, the jersey can be worn comfortably over a base layer, or even straight onto skin. This is elite racewear, made without compromises.
