Rapha’s approach to professional cycling is unparalleled, and when it comes to their own team’s post-race recovery, they’ve been hard at work devising the best possible attire for the job. Now, thanks to the company’s newest project with Dutch textile giant, Byborre, they’ve found the perfect way to promote performance and relaxation for weary cyclists.
In an effort to bring the industry’s best rehabilitative gear to the masses, Rapha has unveiled its new Pro Team Transfer Collection — a series of hoodies, sweatpants, shorts, and scarves that have been designed to expedite post-race recovery. Each piece is made with a proprietary cotton polyamide knit, which fosters high-stretch properties, improved airflow, and breathability. A tasteful Merino wool lining has been added for enhanced softness, while a durable nylon outer boasts a knitted contour line design that pays homage to Marco Pantani’s favorite climb, Monte Carpegna. Aesthetically, the pieces are as technical as they come; they feature Rapha’s Pro Team bars, zippered pocketing, and elasticated openings for additional security. Learn more about the collection, and pick up some of the new gear on Rapha’s website, where it’s retailing for $135+.
