Rapha have launched an update to their classic winter jacket, featuring windproof and water-resistant GORE-TEX fabric.
The new jacket is available in men's and women's styles priced £270, with Rapha Cycling Club members receiving early access before general release on Thursday 15 October.
"Designed for the toughest conditions, (this is) our most durable and versatile winter jacket, made with GORE-TEX INFINIUM WINDSTOPPER technology," say Rapha.
The jacket is the second collaboration between Rapha and GORE-TEX, and the result is a weatherproof cycling jacket that uses Gore's most technically advanced windproof, water-resistant and breathable fabric.
The aim is to keep riders comfortable in the cold without overheating, allowing cyclists to enjoy rather than simply endure their winter rides.
Designed to be used in coldest of winter temperatures as part of a layering system, the jacket is fitted to allow space for a jersey and base layer beneath, while high-stretch storm cuffs form an airtight seal around gloves.
An adjustable drawcord at the hem combines with a raised collar to keep warm air locked in. If the temperature or the pace picks up, chest zips in the men's version allow for extra ventilation and double as easy-access pockets for small essentials.
The women's style features a two-way full-length zipper to aid airflow and a side front pocket for on the go storage.
The jacket's armband, shoulders and pockets all feature reflective trims for improved visibility while two easy-access rear pockets provide space for ride fuel to keep you riding through the freeze.
And finally, the jacket features 360° reflectivity thanks to reflective trim on the shoulders, armband, chest pockets and rear panel to help you stay visible in low winter light.
The men's style is available in Black, Brown and Bright Orange and women's in Bright Orange and Dark Navy.
