Man, I dunno if I could pull these off, but they sure do look amazing. Rapha’s eyewear design continues with the Pro Team Flyweight Glasses. If you like Zeiss lenses and clean, modern, on-the-bike eyewear, head to Rapha for more.
I love it when Rapha does Rapha. Don’t get me wrong, there are many facets to the brand yet the designs that also resonate with me are their themed merino jerseys. Take the newest to their collection: the Merino Rivals Jersey. Inspired by the intense rivalry between two Italians of note: Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. This jersey is colored in Neapolitan hues and accented with classic details. Read more at Rapha!

It’s designed for racing in inclement weather with high-tech fabrics and a super sleek fit. Check out more information below and see the line at Rapha. (more…)
