A new navy colourway option is added to their Wool Wind Jacket which is made from worsted wool which is an extremely lightweight material yet super strong and durable. The collar can be worn at the riders preference with a reflective tab on the collar for added visibility at night. Rapha have also added the Crew Neck Knit to their City Collection roster, a stylish lightweight merino wool blend jumper. The jumper features a mesh stitch to the back allowing added breathability of the body and temperature regulation. A hidden hi-vis reflective cuff is also add to the cuff which can easily be rolled out as well as a hidden zip pocket to the back for them small essentials. Amazing really what Rapha can do with a simple jumper, adding subtle cycling practicality.
