Rapha's Guide to Staying Dry - Women's

Preparation is the best solution to riding in the rain. Wet bodies lose heat faster than they dry, and cold bodies don’t work efficiently. Follow our guide to cover up for whatever the weather can muster.

SUGGESTIONS FOR COLD WEATHER

TAKE A JACKET

Layers are crucial, but when the heavens open none of them are worth a thing without a quality waterproof jacket to protect you. Our range has jackets to suit all riders, from the staple Core Rain Jacket to our latest GORE-TEX jackets, built for the worst conditions.

KEEP YOUR CORE WARM

Keeping warm in the rain is of paramount importance. We use a range of proprietary merino wool blends in our jerseys and base layers to help insulate the body while allowing excess heat and moisture to escape.

SPIN YOUR LEGS

You might feel the cold more elsewhere, but it’s crucial to keep your legs protected. Many of our winter bib shorts and bib tights have wind and water resistant panels, to keep your muscles warm and working hard in the worst weather. Warm legs work best.

WATERPROOFING

If nothing else, a waterproof jacket is essential. From our durable, water repellent (DWR) outerwear to the proprietary Shadow range, Rapha has your back.

BREATHABILITY

Carefully chosen fabrics from the world’s best mills are used in our range of garments that keep water out while remaining breathable.
