With warmer weather and dry trails having come early this year (well, to the UK at least), Rapha is today launching a new clothing collection made for all-day pedaling in summer conditions.

The new Trail Fast + Light range takes four of its existing mountain bike designs and optimizes them to maximize weight saving, heat management, and ventilation. Rapha has also given the products a more streamlined fit and additional "refined features" which are unspecified at this time.

The redesigned pieces that make up the Trail Fast + Light collection are: Fast + Light Shorts, Fast + Light Pants, Lightweight Technical T-Shirt, and a Lightweight Tank.
