Forza Azzurri!

One of the great road cycling nations, Italy always delivers contenders for the top step of the podium, although they’ve been absent from it since the great Paolo Bettini won in 2004. This special-edition Super Lightweight Jersey celebrates the country’s heritage in the sport, and is ideally suited for hard riding in the heat – just as the squadra azzurra will be doing in Brazil this August. Made from three synthetic technical fabrics developed exclusively for Rapha, the main body material is comfortable against the skin as you perspire and also fast drying. Mesh side panels add more breathability and soft cuffs and collar maintain comfort. The iconic green red and white tricolore is printed on the sleeve tips and inner colour, while a flag on the chest and a tiling pattern inspired by the Romans is printed on the sleeves.

The order of progress

While not a country with great cycling heritage, Brazil still has its own success stories. Young Anésio Argenton, a poor country boy from Sao Paulo state, was so determined to represent his country at Melbourne in 1956 that he stowed away on post office airplanes for a week to make the journey Down Under. It was worth it as Argenton came home with two top-ten finishes in the velodrome – still his country’s best ride on the track. This Brazil Super Lightweight Jersey is designed for riding in the heat. The sleeve design is inspired from the wavy patterning found along Copacabana beach. Made from three synthetic technical fabrics developed exclusively for Rapha, the jersey’s main body material is comfortable against the skin as you perspire and also fast drying. Mesh side panels add more breathability and soft cuffs and collar maintain comfort.
