Rapha Country Jerseys


Every year, the World Championship Road Race is a sight for sore eyes. For 7 straight months beforehand we watch the world's best riders do battle in kits festooned with billboard-size sponsor logos in barely-coordinated colors and designs. At the World's, though, the kits are blessedly simple. The jerseys are done up in a nation-relevant color and they're empty of branding. It's a case of simplicity begetting elegance, and we wouldn't have it any other way.The Rapha Country Short Sleeve Jersey is seemingly inspired by this World's phenomenon. It doesn't copycat the designs you'd see there, but rather it captures their essence.The Country jersey is made from Rapha Sportwool. Before you do a double-take on the concept of riding in wool, keep in mind that Sportwool keeps you cooler than performance polyesters because its complex natural fibers work harder to attract moisture vapor and draw it away from your skin. As well as keeping you drier and cooler, Sportwool has lower air permeability than 100% polyester, giving you greater wind and chill protection. It's also naturally anti-bacterial and odor resistant (no more unwelcome stains and smells). It has natural elasticity and softness for comfort and natural UV protection. It looks and feels nicer than polyester but works harder too. And it's durable and easy to care for: machine washable and quick to dry.The Rapha Country Jersey is available in Blue, Green, or Red, and in sizes from Small to XX-Large
