The ultimate cycling jersey for visibility and endurance
In 2011, a trio of Rapha staff decided to push their limits and enter road cycling’s most historic long-distance event: the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonnée, in which cyclists from across the world battle to ride 1,200km, unsupported, in less than 90 hours. Their adventure was both the spur to create a new jersey designed for endurance riding, and the perfect testing ground for such a garment.
The test riders wore prototypes of what would eventually become the Brevet Jersey on the PBP but also throughout a series of qualifying ‘brevet’ rides – 200, 300, 400 and 600km around the UK, including the length-of-Wales-and-back Bryan Chapman Memorial. Those long days in the saddle tested the endurance of both rider and clothing.
