Soar in the sun

Rapha Flyweight

Take flight on the hottest, most humid days with Rapha Flyweight. Developed using our lightest ever fabrics, ride Flyweight to keep your cool when it counts.

Designed to perform

Replacing the Super Lightweight collection, Flyweight is defined by its use of our lightest technical fabrics and highly functional product features. We road tested the new collection where it was designed to perform best: on the steep climbs of hot and humid Taiwan.

Flyweight Jersey


Fly through the air

The jersey is made of a technical, lightweight 97gsm/m2 fabric that has an open knit fabric, aiding cooling airflow between skin and jersey, as well as sweat-wicking and quick drying properties.

Space when you need it

A new gusseted rear pocket expands to allow for greater storage, while lying totally flat when empty for a more streamlined ride. 


Hemmed in

The jersey sleeve hems have been bonded back for a sleek finish and fit, and a more comfortable ride.

In its right place

The zip locks in place just where you want it, even when you’re out the saddle and on the attack.


Flyweight Bib Shorts

Soft in the saddle

Made of the lightest fabric we’ve ever used for bib shorts, at only 155gsm. The extremely fine yarns are knitted densely together to ensure no transparency. Extremely soft, with four-way stretch for a well-supported ride.


Up in the air

The men's bib shorts have a sweat-wicking perforated chamois pad to improve air circulation and keep you cool. The perforations also reduce drying time, enabling you to wash and dry overnight so you’re ready to ride the next morning.

Wear and pair

The colour contrast bib straps - designed to pair with the jersey - are made of a fine lightweight mesh that stretches to fit comfortably over your shoulders. You’ll hardly notice they’re there.


Coldblack™ technology

The bibs fabric has been treated with Coldblack™ to reduce absorption of sunlight and keep your legs cooler.

Flyweight across Collections

The same principles and technology behind Flyweight have been applied to key products across our other collections. Stay cool and take flight, whatever your style of riding.
