An Official Look at Palace's Upcoming Rapha Collaboration

Palace has presented an eye-catching collaboration as part of its Winter 2020 season, partnering with Rapha to equip the EF Pro Cycling team for this year’s Giro d’Italia. The team, supported by Rapha since 2019, will all wear Palace-designed kit, right down to the Cannondale race bikes and POC helmets and eyewear.

The collaboration with Rapha marks the latest time that Palace has turned its attention towards sporting performance wear. Back in 2018, the London-based label designed the apparel to be worn by adidas tennis players at Wimbledon, while earlier this year it designed a golf collection in collaboration with adidas.

The race kit makes a departure from the usual “maglia rosa” pink of the race, instead featuring a bold pattern and a co-branded Palace and Rapha triferg logo. As well as performance jerseys and training jerseys, the collaboration also extends to bib shorts and bespoke helmets and eyewear from Swedish label POC, including a new version of its Tempor helmet model.

Away from the track, Palace has also designed a range of gear to be worn by the EF Pro Cycling ryders. This selection includes a stand-out GORE-TEX jacket, as well as hoodies, T-shirts, long sleeves, oxford shirts and caps all featuring the same aesthetic cues as the more performance-orientated pieces.1 of 9
