From the road to the trail, Rapha’s latest cyclocross collection is designed for out-the-door adventures.
“Whether you’re blasting through the woods, charging over fields, or bunny-hopping the barriers, make the crossing – it’s closer than you think”, says Rapha.
The collection consists of both men’s women’s’ long and short-sleeves jerseys, bibshorts, socks and snood (neck warmer).
In addition, Rapha has also added a stylish t-shirt and cap to the collection, perfect for off-the-bike leisure.
The Rapha Cross Jersey takes the timeless design and breakthrough technology of the British brand’s Core collection and applies it to the iconic Rapha Cross style. Cut from a soft, light stretch fabric, the jersey is shaped to fit the body perfectly on the bike with shoulder-hugging sleeves and side panels for stability. It is finished with a ribbed collar and cuffs, a concealed zip pocket and a wide, laser-cut rear gripper lined with soft silicone. The body fabric is antibacterial, keeping the jersey fresh for longer. Whether you’re hitting the woods or bunnyhopping the barriers, the Cross Jersey is the one for off-road fun.
The bibshorts feature the latest designs from Rapha’s Pro Team Bib Shorts II such as a new dual-density chamois pad, updated thigh grippers printed directly onto the fabric of the shorts, folded bonded edges on each upper strap and the multiple color options that allows for greater matching with other Pro Team products.
In addition, the bibs are available in two lengths, regular and long, with a difference between leg lengths of approximately 1 inch. Long shorts are for taller riders or those who prefer more thigh coverage.
Cross Long Sleeve Jersey is designed for the mixed terrain of cyclocross riding, insulating against cool weather but breathable enough to remain comfortable during hard efforts.
Cut from Rapha Performance Merino (RPM150), a light and odor-resistant material milled to Rapha’s specifications, the fabric boasts exceptional sweat-wicking performance and anti-bacterial properties.
The classic Rapha Cross colors feature on this year’s new geometric print, on the cuffs and at the collar for a striking flash of color in the mud.
The ‘1901’ logo references the story label stitched into the garments, which tells of the sport’s founding at the turn of the twentieth century.
The Cross Snood goes over your neck to keep body heat in and cold air out. In the harshest conditions, it can be rolled up over the ears and mouth to add an extra layer of protection.
Made seam-free from a lightweight PrimaLoft yarn, the Cross Lightweight Snood is an essential garment to get you through cross season, or during your cold weather jaunts off the road and onto the trails.
