Few things on the streets are as visually arresting as a well-dressed cyclist powering along. The flip side of that being that few things are as ridiculous looking as a cyclist in so much bright, logo-sodden spandex that he or she looks like a piece of NASCAR performance art. These new looks from Rapha‘s Spring/Summer 2012 collection fall squarely in the former camp.

From the technical mesh base layer on through the new Country Jersey—a series of super functional shirts that pay homage to the great cycling nations of Europe—everything here is built for performance with a strong eye for stylish simplicity. Now, if you will excuse us, we need to go fix a flat. See more from Rapha.
