Rapha launches new insulated racewear


Warm and breathable, protective and lightweight; the new Rapha insulated racewear is for cold weather training and racing. Made using active insulation, you’ll stay warm and comfortable no matter how hard you ride.

Rapha first used active insulation in the Brevet Insulated range, which launched in mid-2016. Designed to perform in the wide range of temperatures typical of long-distance riding, the jacket and gilet became two of their most popular products.

For this season, they’ve adapted the insulation to make the first racewear that keeps your temperature consistent regardless of tempo, from the start of your ride to the end.

Active insulation has an extremely high warmth-to-weight ratio – far better than puffy down insulation – so even if you’re outside waiting to start your ride, you’ll be warmer than in any other jacket or gilet of equivalent weight or bulk.

The outer fabric of the jackets and gilets is windblocking and water-repellent, keeping the worst of the weather off your core. Perfect for starting out in harsh conditions.
