Be more visible when riding at night

The Reflective Climber's Shoes are made with low weight and ventilation as priorities, at the same time as providing high levels of visibility through fully reflective uppers.

The uppers are constructed with a reflective mesh-backed synthetic leather, chosen for its low weight and exceptional breathability. Retaining the tensile strength required to support a foot during intense efforts, the mesh lining also allows sweat to evaporate from inside of the shoe. The leather’s perforations enable fresh air to circulate, leaving the foot feeling cool. Reflective low-profile hook and loop fasteners are chosen for their simplicity and minimal bulk. The three straps allow the rider to easily adjust tension across the foot.

The EC90 SLXII sole is an evolution of that found on the Rapha GT Shoes. It keeps weight and stack height to a minimum, incorporates a replaceable heel protector, and is shaped to complement Giro’s SuperNatural Fit™ footbeds that allow riders to choose their preferred level of arch support. In contrast pink, the sole completes the RCC livery.

Please note: If you already own a pair of Climber’s Shoes, the reflective material used in the Reflective Climber’s Shoes is slightly stiffer, and will require a longer bedding-in period.

Worn by pros

Developed with experts in biomechanics and footwear design, the Rapha Climber's Shoes have been rigorously tested by the best riders in the world.

Team Sky riders have worn the Climber’s Shoes in all weather conditions, clocking up countless kilometres in the process. The result is a shoe that has become a staple item of Team Sky kit, providing exceptional performance and optimum power transfer in challenging mountainous terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful things! These are stunning shoes. Always been a Sidi user but these are super light, great fit and an amazing reflective silver in certain light. Beautiful upper material and sole is incredibly stiff. Couldn't quite believe it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoes in the world! These were on my Wish List for a while as they are pricey. So as a birthday treat to myself I thought go for it, why not. Absolutely delighted with them, they are well worth the investment. They look very stylish and are so comfortable. I have wide lumpy feet so I went up half a size. The reflective material is ideal for my early morning and evening rides, a great safety feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RCC Climbing shoes These have been amazing! They look great and are my early morning riding show of choice. They are super high vis and I always get comments about how awesome they look. Good to see Rapha making them available in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reflective shoes Bought these to replace a pair of Fizik R1s. These are lighter and more confortable with the option to change the instep support to match your feet well. Can feel a bit of a pinch at the front when walking but not noticed this when cycling. Look epic in reflective and always get positive comments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need in a shoe This is my second pair of climbers shoes and I am super impressed once again! Love the colour way, love the lightness and stiffness you get whilst wearing them riding. The touch of hot pink on the sole increases your safety to vehicles which is a bonus and a must. Love ❤️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look great but not perfect The RCC ones look awesome but they're not as comfortable or as effective as my S works. They're quite wide and sometimes rub on the crank and the tongue is still hard after 140 miles. I think they'll bed in but the S works are more comfortable out of the box. Half sizes work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than you can imagine It was so difficult deciding whether to buy these; are they worth the extra over Italian shoes? Are the worth the extra over Giro SLX? Is the grey reflective as nice as the White? Should I be trumped by the yellow reflective? Will the lack of a ratchet effect the fit and hold? In the end, after much trying on and research I plumped for the RCC reflective grey, and I'm really pleased I did. The colour is fantastic and in any light it shines like the moon (better than white imho, but I might need a yellow pair as well) The fit is superb and the Velcro straps a simple and effective delight. I followed the size guide and found it perfect. Don't delay, make up your mind today!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than they look Fabulous shoes, great fit as expected from the proven GIRO sole, but the reflective leather has to be seen to be believed. Great feature, even catches sunlight to cause them to change colour, great for visibility in all weathers. Great breathing in warmer weather.

Hi Rapha, these shoes are marked as NEW. What exactly is new about them comparing to the old ones? I bought the white wit grey velcro en black with pink velcro two years ago.

Asked by: BertJanss
Hi, the shoes are exactly the same as the previous model apart from the reflective treatment. The fit and sole are as the versions you mentioned.

Do these have the same fit as the GT shoes? Currently I'm a 43.5 in them but I also have Giro Empires and I'm a 44 in those, so I just want to make sure. Thanks.

Asked by: Ea1980
Hi, for any given size the GT Shoes and RCC Climber's Shoes are made with an identical Giro last.

Hi, I've got the current Giro Empire ACCs & V90s in size 46. Since those shoes have same EC90 sole as the climbers I assume I should order the same size? Thanks

Asked by: Justin Baum
Hi, yes, the Climber's Shoes will fit you in the same size as your Giros with the EC90 sole.
