Race-ready insulation for the coldest competition
Riders and racers looking for warmth in cold conditions often have to compromise on speed by wearing a bulky, protective jacket. Not so with the new Souplesse Insulated Jacket, a close-fitting, cold weather outer layer, which uses Polartec’s extraordinary Alpha insulation for class-leading warmth without the volume of down. It is highly breathable, ensuring you won’t overheat during harder efforts, and fast-drying and hydrophobic, meaning it won’t hold moisture like natural down insulation. A DWR-coated, windproof front keeps your chest warm, while the stretch fabric on the back ensures a great fit, as well as letting body heat out. The jacket has three pockets on the back for storing valuables, and the double-ended Vislon zip provides easy access to your jersey pockets or to help you regulate body temperature. Whether you’re training hard or warming-up pre-race, the Souplesse Insulated Jacket is a guaranteed game-changer.
“The best part of this jacket is its ability to regulate core body temperature through a wide range of temperatures. It kept me perfectly warm at a consistent temperature, from the start to the end of my ride.”

“…True to Rapha's detail-honed heritage, all the little things are on point, too, from the reflective hit at the bottom of the middle pocket and the hidden, zippered storage—big enough for an iPhone or car keys—on the side. I anticipate wearing this vest more than any other item of bike clothing I own.”
