Rapha launches ‘oil slick’ Crit clothing range with iridescent design


Rapha’s newest clothing launch is perhaps its most curious and unexpected yet, a Crit Collection that is aimed at the fast and furious world of criterium racing.


Previously the London-based clothing brand has offered race-focused clothing through its Pro Team collection, much of it formed following sponsorship of Team Sky.

Where the Crit Collection differs is by having a number of features designed for the particular requirements of crit racing. These include transparent pockets for race numbers, reflective logos for night races, and a minimalist design with a close fit.
