Those who know bike racing know criterium racing is serious business. Generally you are pedaling at breakneck speed for an hour with hundreds of like-minded bicycling psychos (bi-psychos?) all out to prove how tough and fast they are. So of course you can’t show up to one of these things in a tank top and jorts. You are much better off setting the tone in Rapha’s just-dropped Crit Collection. Rapha’s stuff is always sharp, and this lineup — featuring two jerseys ($165), bib shorts ($245) and a suit ($315) that kinda combines the two — is no exception. 

The jersey boasts lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric, three convenient rear pockets and an armband with reflective logo. The bib shorts feature streamlined single-seam construction for optimal aerodynamics, a dual-density chamois and breathable, high-stretch uppers. The suit rocks the best qualities of the jersey and shorts.

Shop the collection now and the last thing you’ll have to worry about come race day is what you’re wearing.
