Bike Kit Close-Up: Rapha Brevet Jersey And Gilet Bundle

Both the jersey and gilet feature a reflective horizontal stripe and detailing for extra safety in low-light conditions.

For access to all of our training, gear, and race coverage, plus exclusive training plans, FinisherPix photos, event discounts, and GPS apps, sign up for Outside+.

The history of the Brevet jersey goes back to 2011, when three Rapha staff members entered the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonnée, a 1,200-kilometer unsupported, historical distance event, testing a prototype of what eventually became the Brevet jersey and its accompanying gilet (vest). What came out of those long-distance tests is a durable jersey with the polished, classy look Rapha is known for. Both the jersey and gilet feature a reflective horizontal stripe and detailing for extra safety in low-light conditions. With an offset zipper and a windproof front, the gilet is perfect for layering, and when the ride temps heat up, it packs down easily into a jersey pocket. The merino-blend jersey material is lightweight enough for early morning or crisp-weather rides but is probably a bit too heavy for height-of-summer spins.
