New from Rapha: Cool in the Heat
- by Christopher Jones
- Published: 19 May 2009
Designed for tough summer riding, this new lightweight jersey is fabricated from ultra-lightweight Sportwool ensuring moisture transfer to keep you cool and dry.
The jersey uses a lightweight merino/polyester blend with eyelet construction for optimum moisture transfer and comfort. This hybrid fabric is the same used by the Rapha Condor pro team.
A full-length zip, new for 2009, improves ventilation still further, and the iconic Rapha contrast arm band is now featured on the left sleeve.
A full-length mesh panel at the back increases breathability where most needed. The jersey has an expertly crafted and efficient pocket layout: There are two generous cargo pockets on the right and left rear panels and a central rear zip opens up a full-width "ballast" sleeve running beneath the two cargo pockets. A discreet zip-pocket on the right hand corner of the jersey is included for valuables. There is also a concealed pocket inside the front of the jersey for special "rider-specific" items.
