Rapha has been using softshell technology since we launched, in 2004. The weather-resistant, breathable and tactile qualities of the fabric ensure it performs superbly in a diverse range of conditions. In 2015, this membrane-based material still proves a remarkable ally in the cyclist’s war against bad weather. Simply put, softshell acts as a second skin, working with a rider’s body to enhance natural heating – and cooling – as well as protecting from the elements.
