Our memories are long, so it's easy for us to recall what is almost certainly our all-time favorite Rapha collection: The Data Print design done in collaboration with London-based design firm Accept & Proceed from way back in 2015.
We fell for the hard geometric slashes, and in asking Rapha to design a custom jersey for Allied, we asked the team to be inspired by Data Print, but with a more minimal approach and warmer colors. We couldn't be happier with what they made for us.
Designed for training and racing in mild to warm weather, the jersey has two main fabrics: a breathable 155gsm fabric on the front to keep you cool, and a stretch polyester fabric on the back to protect you from the sun. The Pro Team fit suits an in-the-drops, on-bike position, while the look of the jersey maintains the Pro Team aesthetic: bonded hems, folded-in sleeves and fewer seams all work to deliver style and speed.
Pro Team products are the leading edge of Rapha’s performance technology, developed and proven over years of work with the world’s best cyclists.
As always, this is an amazing Rapha jersey.
The material is awesome. Fits snugly so I sized up to make it a bit more comfortable. If you like skin fit stay true to size.
