Replacing last season’s Super Lightweight collection, Rapha has launched its newest lightweight collection of apparel called Flyweight, which uses the British brand’s lightest and most technically advanced fabrics to date.
What’s more, the collection was put to the test in one of the most humid and demanding climates as cyclist can face – Taiwan.
FLY THROUGH THE AIR
The jersey is made of a technical, lightweight 97gsm/m2 fabric that has an open knit fabric, aiding cooling airflow between skin and jersey, as well as sweat-wicking and quick drying properties.
SPACE WHEN YOU NEED IT
A new gusseted rear pocket expands to allow for greater storage, while lying totally flat when empty for a more streamlined ride.
The jersey sleeve hems have been bonded back for a sleek finish and fit, and a more comfortable ride.
IN ITS RIGHT PLACE
The zip locks in place just where you want it, even when you’re out the saddle and on the attack.
FLYWEIGHT BIB SHORTS
SOFT IN THE SADDLE
Made of the lightest fabric we’ve ever used for bib shorts, at only 155gsm. The extremely fine yarns are knitted densely together to ensure no transparency. Extremely soft, with four-way stretch for a well-supported ride.
UP IN THE AIR
The men’s bib shorts have a sweat-wicking perforated chamois pad to improve air circulation and keep you cool. The perforations also reduce drying time, enabling you to wash and dry overnight so you’re ready to ride the next morning.
WEAR AND PAIR
The color contrast bib straps – designed to pair with the jersey – are made of a fine lightweight mesh that stretches to fit comfortably over your shoulders. You’ll hardly notice they’re there.
The bibs fabric has been treated with Coldblack to reduce absorption of sunlight and keep your legs cooler.
