With the coming of every new season, Rapha has been continually adding to its quickly expanding MTB range. To face the oncoming winter months in the Northern hemisphere, Rapha's teamed up with Gore-Tex to release the Trail Gore-Tex Infinium Jacket for AW22.

While Rapha already has jackets in its mountain bike range,  they have so far been designed to give windproofing and protection against light showers. Rapha has aimed the Trail Gore-Tex Infinium Jacket to be its best MTB jacket for tackling much more challenging shoulder and winter conditions.

The jacket uses Gore-Tex's proven Infinium material which is a hybridized 3L 30D nylon ripstop lined with a C-KNIT backer designed to be breathable while still having a soft interior and plenty of stretch to help keep movement unrestricted.

Beyond the material, Rapha has been at work adding details such as two chest pockets for storage (one on the outside and one on the inside), paneled gussets for easier movement, and a stowable halo hood that goes over your helmet.

Rapha offers the Trail Gore-Tex Infinium Jacket in both men's and women's fits. There is also a range of colors available. The women's jacket comes in Black/Light Grey, Blue Green/Egg Shell, and Blue/Light Grey color ways. The men's jacket is available in Blue/Navy, Black/Light Grey, Purple/Black, and Blue Green/Egg Shell. The jacket will be available in sizes between XS-XXL.
