Rapha Nelson Vails Jersey (Limited Edition)
Based on the Pro Team Midweight, this jersey forms part of a special limited collection made in honour of US champion and Olympic medallist, Nelson Vails, nicknamed The Cheetah.
Watch Nelson Vails racing the ‘84 Los Angeles Olympics and you’ll see why. Vails’ predatory power bred in the concrete jungle as a bike messenger, where he never failed to deliver saw him scoop silver, resplendent in red, white and blue. This collection recalls Vails’ riding and racing roots, featuring the green and yellow of his first team.
This jersey is full of features, and packed with references to Vails’ story. Inspired by his team colors and the design of the day, there’s plenty to discover before you even put this performance jersey on. Designed for training in mild to warm weather the jersey has a close race fit, designed for an in-the-drops position and a Pro Team aesthetic. The pockets expand to allowing extra space for riding essentials.
