High class cycle clothing manufacturer Rapha has released details of its winter 2008 range, which includes two cyclo-cross specific items.

As the company points out, cyclo-cross specific attire is very hard to come by – in fact, you could say Rapha have created a new market. The Cross Jersey and Cross 3/4 Bib Shorts have been developed in association with US-based bicycle manufacturer Independent Fabrication.

Both garments have been designed to withstand the gruelling, dirty nature of cyclo-cross riding as well as including specific features that any ‘cross rider would appreciate. For instance, the jersey includes a padded right shoulder to prevent chaffing when carrying your bike over obstacles.

Rapha products can be bought via the company’s website at www.rapha.cc. The Cyclo-cross clothing is part of Rapha’s new winter 2008 range, which can be viewed in full on the website.
