According to recent data gathered by Trek in a national survey, riding bikes is very much a part of life with COVID-19. Twenty-one percent of American bike owners have been riding more often, and 50 percent say they plan to ride more after things return to some version of normal. That resolution might prove easier to keep with sunny summer days not far off, but new riders will quickly learn that cycling can get downright tropical in the summer. Luckily, Rapha just revealed a well-timed solution with its new Core Lightweight Jersey.
The jersey, a new riff on the cycling apparel brand’s popular Core Jersey, uses a super-breathable mesh fabric in the front to let the cooling wind in but a denser material in the back for sun protection. It features three back pockets for carrying your phone, wallet, snacks or anything else, and of course Rapha’s minimalist and classic cycling style. If you’ve recently made your own cycling vow, you’ll want this jersey come July.
