Rapha launches new Explore Gore-Tex C-Knit Jacket and Explore Pants

Rapha has launched the new Explore Gore-Tex Jacket and Explore Pants.

The Explore Gore-Tex Jacket features Gore C-Knit backer technology as well as Aquaguard zips. The latest product in Rapha’s partnership with Gore-Tex, this jacket delivers ‘unparalleled breathability and ventilation with complete rain protection’.

Designed to comfortably fit the Explore Down Jacket underneath in colder weather and pack down to fit into the Explore bar bag when conditions improve, Rapha said the Explore Gore-Tex C-Knit Jacket integrates seamlessly into the wider Explore collection.

The new Explore Pants have been created to overcome unpredictable days thanks to a durable and ergonomic design. Offering long-lasting comfort and freedom, the Explore Pants combine lightweight, abrasion-resistant and quick-drying materials.

The Explore Pants feature four-way stretch materials, an adjustable waist and integrated belt for comfort and style, while zippable hand-warmer pockets and cinchable hems provide further practicality and comfort whether on two feet or two wheels. Designed for off-road adventures where durability and protection are paramount, the DWR-treated Explore Pants come with colour matched iron-on patches for easy repairability.
