New Rain Jacket, Rapha Trousers and Gentlemen's Cap among new line-up highlights

Rapha launches autumn 2009 range

Rapha has announced details of its autumn/winter 2009 range to the trade.

Among the highlights from the new line-up is the Rain Jacket. Road tested on the Tour of California route by Rapha Continental riders, the Jacket offers high levels of performance in wet conditions, according to the manufacturer. Highly water resistant and breathable, the jacket packs down small enough to fit into a jersey pocket and offers top-notch protection from the wind. The Rain Jacket is available in Gunmetal grey, Winter White and Gunmetal grey.

The urban rider-targeted Rapha Trousers are smart, slim-cut and tough enough to cope with the winter commute. Stylish enough to be worn off the bike and featuring a reinforced seat panel, the trousers include a key-fold pocket.

The Gentleman’s Cap is a new interpretation of the classic cycling biretta and targeted at what Rapha calls ‘the urban riding dandy’. Boasting three exclusive designs, each has signature features while combining innovative fabrics with high quality finishing. The Gentleman’s Cap comes in Polka Dot, Feather and Waxed.

Other highlights include the Classic Softshell and Winter Tights. For a full range overview, click here.
