Rapha + GORE-TEX

Rapha makes the world’s best cycling apparel, GORE-TEX the best waterproof materials. Together, we’re raising the bar in waterproof cycling jackets to keep you riding in the most extreme conditions.

08 October 2019


Professional cyclists don’t get to choose which days they ride. No matter how cold it gets, however heavy the rain, they have to get out and train. Designed for rides that start and finish in the cold and wet, this is our most protective jacket ever, combining military-grade active insulation with two of GORE-TEX’s most technical waterproof fabrics to ensure that training is never cancelled.

Durable, windproof, breathable, but most of all – completely waterproof. Water beads and rolls off the outer membrane, meaning the jacket won’t wet out. That means no chills, and no weight gain through water retention.

Polartec Alpha®

Keeping you warm even in the worst conditions, this active insulation is hydrophobic, lightweight and breathable. Engineered for the military and ideal for intense activity, it easily regulates excess body heat and perspiration.

GORE-TEX Stretch™

Made for comfort in motion and freedom of movement. Close fit is crucial for performance. A panel at the lower back makes room for pockets, and the hood allows full range of motion in an anatomical, storm-sealed race fit.


Full protection from the rain and wind in a storm, all packed down into half a pocket once it’s passed. The Pro Team Lightweight GORE-TEX Jacket is our most technical, lightest waterproof shell ever. With no face fabric, water beads straight off. No saturation, no chilling effect and better breathability.

Weather the wettest

Made for the worst weather, GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ fabric is durable, windproof and breathable. It’s also completely waterproof: water beads and rolls off, so the jacket won’t wet out. That means no chills, and no added weight through water retention.

Fit for the fastest

Made for comfort in motion and freedom of movement. A close fit is crucial for performance, giving you an aerodynamic advantage when the conditions are turned against you. A panel on the back makes room for pockets, fueling you for the road ahead.

Perfectly packable

The lightweight construction packs down into a jersey pocket, with an integrated lightweight mesh pack pocket for easy storage. This makes it ideal for days when the threat of bad weather looms: put this jacket in your pocket, and your mind at ease.


Designed for adventure, the Explore Hooded GORE-TEX Pullover is made with a three-layer laminate for the same fully waterproof protection as its Pro Team equivalents, with added durability. We put it to the test on a multi-day trip through Iceland’s wild interior.

Made for the road

GORE-TEX’s lightest ever three-layer waterproof fabric provides protection when you need it most, and packs away when you don’t. With plenty of room for layers yet soft enough to be worn against skin, it’s an indispensable item on the pack list.

Gimme shelter

The spacious storm hood with elasticated trim can be worn under a helmet, or without when you go off-bike.

Pack pocket

All-in-one map pocket, pillow and stuff sack adds utility. There’s also a valve core tool hidden away for mechanicals.
