One new product from the masters of monochrome, Rapha, is this sharp looking gilet. Built from Epic fabric, it offers a windproof, water-resistant and breathable outer layer most suited to chilly mornings or spring/autumn riding, when you?ll want a little extra protection.

As ever Rapha appears to have covered all the details well. This gilet has two pockets and a mesh panel in the back, a lining for the collar, and it packs down small.

Available in five sizes and either predominately black with an AC Cobra-style stripe, or mainly white with black stripe, meaning it should show up well when riding.

When it comes to the price you?d better be sitting down because it?s a knee-buckling £120.
