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.
