FIRST LOOK: 2021 RAPHA EF PRO CYCLING KIT

The pretty in pink ensemble is now available for you

Press Release

From the low-profile blackout kit debuted at the 2019 Tour Down Under to the standout switch out that shook up last year’s Giro, Rapha and EF have always designed to disrupt. Pulling on a kit should always mean pushing the envelope and committing to driving the sport forwards.

But even as the team who brought the pro peloton its first duck-inspired kit, we don’t want to ruffle too many feathers. After getting into hot water last season, we’ve decided to create a compliant kit for 2021. In fact, we’ve tried to create the world’s most compliant cycling kit. Though we’ve earned a reputation as rule breakers, our design for this season centers around the rule-makers’ regulations.

PRO TEAM AERO JERSEY

The Pro Team Aero Jersey is made for the fastest race days, when even the slightest aerodynamic advantage can support a racewinning move. No ordinary replica, this team edition jersey is identical to those used by EF
Education-NIPPO riders at the highest level of competition.

Every element of the Aero Jersey has been designed from a pro racer’s perspective. Smooth fabrics on the front and texture at the back minimizes drag to ensure effort equates to speed. The sleek material on the back panel has a directional nap – smooth in one direction, rough in the other – to provide an additional aerodynamic advantage. This fabric, as well as those used on the sleeves and the front of the jersey, are extremely lightweight and offer
excellent mechanical stretch for a figure-hugging race fit at the lowest weight possible. Bonded seams across the back of the jersey support three pockets even when they are stuffed full of food while inside, a mesh lining aids breathability across the lower back. The full-length zipper is oversized for quick adjustments even when riding on the rivet while a zip guard prevents irritation when zipping up for the victory salute.

MEN’S EF EDUCATION-NIPPO PRO TEAM BIB SHORTS II

Designed for comfort when the race is on, the EF Education-NIPPO Pro Team Bib Shorts combine technology developed over years of allout racing from climbs to cols. Deep blue in color, the bibs complement the EF team’s
unique 2021 jersey design and use a soft yet slightly compressive fabric that’s comfortable against the skin. Cut for comfort in an on-bike position, the shorts feature our size-specific, dual-density Pro Team chamois pad, as used by team riders. A minimal seam construction creates a streamlined shape to prevent the fabric from bunching at the hips while low-profile, wide leg grippers ensure a stable fit. The uppers are printed with the compliant design that adorns the team jersey and are made of a high-stretch mesh fabric that is fast-drying and high-wicking for comfort on hotter days. Flat, bonded seams sit close to the skin to prevent rubbing or chafing. A single radio pocket is positioned on the lower back for use in races. Price: $270

EF EDUCATION-NIPPO WOMEN’S PRO TEAM JERSEY

Designed for comfort when the race is on, the EF Education-NIPPO Women’s Pro Team Bib Shorts combine technology developed in the women’s peloton with the most eye-catching design from the men’s. Deep pink and blue in color, the bibs complement the EF team’s unique 2021 jersey design and use a soft yet slightly compressive fabric that’s comfortable against the skin. Cut for comfort in an on-bike position, the shorts feature our women’s specific chamois pad, used by our pro riders during their toughest training rides and most intense race efforts. A minimal seam construction creates a streamlined shape to prevent the fabric from bunching at the hips, and low-profile, wide leg grippers keep everything in place. The uppers are printed with the oil slick design that adorns
the team jersey and made of a high-stretch mesh fabric that is fast-drying and high-wicking for comfort on hotter days. Flat, bonded seams sit close to the skin to prevent rubbing or chafing. A single radio pocket is positioned on
the lower back for use in races. Price: $195
