When inclement weather is heading your way, reach for Rapha's Soutplesse Race Cape. This technical piece leads the way in Rapha's foul-weather technology, packing in waterproof construction with a fit that isn't compromised. It offers tailored waterproof coverage that's cut for race day, and packed with protection against the elements that's both breathable and lightweight. This year the Souplesse Race Cape is crafted with an all new fabric that's both lighter weight and more breathable than previous years, offering the same three-layer water protection, but with elevated moisture management to keep your core from overheating on wet and windy climbs. Just as you would expect from a piece holding Rapha's "Race" designation, the Souplesse Race Cape features a streamlined race cut that feels fast the moment you zip it on. It's slim, and designed to minimize wrinkles and folds that catch the wind and create drag, with close fitting collar and cuffs that cut through the wind with Polartec fabric that is built to keep the water out, while allowing sweat to escape. On the bottom the jacket is cut with a drastically varied hem that features an exaggerated drop-tail to keep you covered in the drops, while the front is just long enough to keep your front-side covered when in the cycling position, without adding any excess wind-catching fabric. It's finished off with reflective striping and logos, and fully taped seams, plus a zippered pocket to stow your essentials close at hand. The jacket packs down into a compact bundle for easy stowing in your jersey pocket when the showers clear.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
