A performance denim made from nylon, cotton and elastane blend yarns, these specialist cycling jeans are hard-wearing, stain-resistant and fast drying. Developed specifically for Rapha in Italy, the denim is an evolution in functional fabric. Unlike regular denim, the jeans are extremely resistant to abrasion and won't deteriorate at key wear points, particularly around the seat. The stretch in the yarn also allows for ease of movement.

With a standard straight-leg fit, the jeans are cut for on-the-bike fit, with a high-backed waist, which is cut lower at the front. The jeans have been tailored to accommodate the pedalling action with offset inseams to prevent chafing. Belt loops are positioned for maximum comfort.

The right rear pocket is reinforced to hold a compact D-lock, while the front pockets are cut deep to keep contents secure when cycling. The jeans' zip fly uses satin tape and are fastened with a metal button. Inside the waistband there is soft gripper for added support when riding.

Details include a reflective Rapha logo inside the right leg displayed when rolled or folded-up. High-visibility pink binding also features inside the legs. There is a contrast white belt loop on the rear of the jeans and subtle pink stitching on the waistband, black leather label and rear pockets. The jeans come with a patch of denim for repairs.
