Rapha Paul Smith special edition jersey review

Rapha’s city cycling jersey pays homage to the Giro d’Italia with stunning attention to detail. The slim fitting, fast wicking merino and polyester jersey is warmer than a light race design but stayed comfortable on steady rides in the sun. 

A pair of buttoned chest pockets and a single rear with a fold-out reflective flap will hold essentials, but this jersey is more about style than practicality. The short zip has an inner guard and garage, and a rear silicone gripper holds the tail in place. 

Subtle printing in La Gazzetta dello Sport style on the chest pockets and reflective ‘Il Giro’ detail on the rear pocket are nice touches.
