Palace has teamed up with cycling performance and lifestyle brand, Rapha, for an intriguing collaboration. The joint effort finds the streetwear imprint deviating from its skate roots and entering the world of bicycle racing.
The Palace x Rapha collection will be worn by WorldTour team, EF Pro Cycling, during this month's Giro d’Italia. Not only does the limited-edition capsule consist of a team kit, but it also includes a range of casual wear that the squad will sport off the bike.
The kit features the Pro Team Aero Jersey and Pro Team Bib Shorts II, as well as special edition socks, caps, and musettes. Each of these items will be available in extremely limited quantities, alongside men’s and women’s versions of the Pro Team Training Jersey, and women’s versions of the Pro Team Bib Shorts and Pro Team Aero Jersey.
EF Pro Cycling athletes will be riding three different Cannondale race bikes decked out with Palace x Rapha graphics. Off the bike, the street apparel includes a T-shirt, long-sleeve T-shirt, hoodie, oxford shirt, GORE-TEX jacket, and cap.
Cycling is a sport rich in tradition. Rapha, however, is on a mission to disrupt the status quo, and the new collaboration with fellow disruptors, Palace, is sure to do that.
