Made for adventure not speed, this quarter-zip waterproof pullover makes use of GoreTex Active™ whose lightweight three-layer construction is both waterproof and breathable. With a new, more relaxed fit and soft next-to-skin feel, the jacket is comfortable on and off the bike, no matter what you’re wearing underneath.
Should your adventure take you off-road, there are several technical features to keep you comfortable. The storm hood features an elasticated closure to keep the weather at bay and can be worn with or without a helmet. A large chest pocket with internal mesh dividers keeps riding rations and maps out of the rain and close to hand. Reflective stripes on the side panels and dots on the rear ensure you stay seen in low light conditions. Once night falls, the jacket packs down into an integrated stuff sack which doubles as a pillow for overnight pit stops, or smaller still to fit inside your jersey pocket.
“The Explore kept me warm and dry as I was riding. … On top of being fully waterproof, the Explore is comfortable, practical, and, as with most things Rapha, really good looking. It’s ready to take on your next adventure, whether that’s bikepacking through Banff or zipping down the block for a pizza in a drizzle.”
