Obsessed with their weight, wattage, and ever so slightly vain, the road racer may wax lyrical about Rapha to their rivals, and may also wax their legs. This slick individual owns more than a few bits of Rapha and likes to ride fast, but would never sacrifice style for speed. The kit has to be right, it has to be the best. It has to be something like:
Pro Team Jacket »
New colours for this award-winning jersey-esque jacket. A bit like the road racer’s work shirt, but far more streamlined and breathable for going hard in the hills when everyone else is tucked up in bed.
Pro Team Thermal Bibs »
Insulated bib shorts, which are slightly longer in the leg are the kind of thing Italian racers use, and if it’s good enough for the Italians, it sure is worth the money to an aspiring battistrada. These are the number one-hit of the season.
Merino Arm and Knee Warmer Bundle »
Merino wool arm warmers and knee warmers (there are also Merino Leg Warmers available) feel amazing, are lightweight (remember those marginal gains) keep you insulated and are also compatible with the jacket and bibs mentioned above.
