RAPHA TAKES ON SUMMER MOUNTAIN BIKING APPAREL WITH THE FAST + LIGHT COLLECTION
An all-new collection of lightweight, streamlined mountain bike apparel from Rapha Performance Trailwear is crafted for riders seeking to go faster, farther, and cooler as they savor the haze of summer dust. Built for hot laps, all-day singletrack sessions, and everything in between, the Fast + Light collection will enhance your riding season as the mercury rises.
Finally, the long, scorching days of summer are just around the corner. Charge ahead in the all-new Fast + Light collection, a series of staples built for the hottest and fastest rides.
The Fast + Light collection delivers the renowned quality, style, and durability of Rapha’s trail-oriented gear, but in a package that is more pedal-friendly. Perfect for afternoon laps to all-day missions. Extend your season in apparel that is crafted from featherweight, ventilated fabrics, with refined features and a more streamlined fit. You are never held back from finding your flow out there, even on the hottest days and on your longest rides.
We took four of our existing designs (each having been put through the wringer by the likes of Isaac Wallen, Jill Kintner and Eliot Jackson), then optimized for a wider range of uses, from jib sessions to marathon pedalfests, by focusing on three key elements: weight savings, heat management, and ventilation. The end result: four brand-new products that breathe incredibly well, are tailored yet aren’t overly engineered, and look sharp whether you’re out for a quick lap, an all-day epic, or a post-ride burrito.
Those golden trails are ripe for the taking, so don’t let summer heat slow you down. Push your progression further with the new Fast + Light Shorts, Fast + Light Pants, Lightweight Technical T-Shirt, and Lightweight Tank from Rapha Performance Trailwear.
