Rapha’s To the Sun Capsule Collection Jan 8, 2015


Releases like these always make me miss the warm and sunny rides we have here in Texas, almost year round. Even as the temperatures are freezing currently now. The To the Sun Collection is Rapha’s latest capsule. Including sun sleeves, which are a summer staple ’round these parts, a lightweight cap and a lightweight, race cut jersey.

See the entire To the Sun Collection at Rapha and more information from the press-release below. Also, what’s up Tao!?


Performance race jersey for early season rides and mid-morning coffee stops. It is lightweight, high-wicking and cut for an aggressive position on the bike. Mesh side and rear panels give added breathability and the low-cut collar provides optimum streamlining. The design is inspired by chasing sunlight in the early season and features a special ‘refraction’ graphic across the chest.
