Rapha launch Spring/Summer 2014 catalogue

Lightweight wear for warm weather (when it eventually arrives)

Spring can’t be far away when Rapha launches its big set-piece summer catalogue. On Wednesday, the Team Sky apparel sponsor launched its Spring/Summer Lookbook, shot in Cévennes on the south east fringe of the Massif Central in France. Cue its distinctive style of nostalgic photography and stunning vistas.


We’ve already had a preview of the Rapha 2014 Spring range but worth a look is the Brevet short sleeve jersey – which Rapha is pitching as the all-day all-night riding jersey. The £195/US$295/AU$295 jersey has reflective cuffs and strips and a reflective gilet. It looks ideal for Audax riders who’ve saved all that money on low event entry fees.

The women’s range has also been expanded. It includes a sleeveless merino base layer, three-quarter length tights for those who don’t care for the hassle of bibs and an urban-style lightweight bomber jacket.

Forget about all the rain with a quick flick through the men’s and women’s catalogues here.

The brevet jersey is meant for all-day all-night rides, not just hour-long spins before work:
