A stylish magazine that broadens the reference points of the sport.

Mondial expands the idea of what road cycling is and what the sport can be. Featuring incisive longform writing and stunning photography, in Mondial you will find familiar cycling topics given a fresh new treatment, while a cycling viewpoint is brought to wider cultural subjects, thus broadening the sport’s reference points.

In issue two, we look at the art of suffering through the works of great painters, while Herbie Sykes explores how the tycoon Gianni Agnelli heralded the demise of the golden era of Italian cycling. Julian Hoffman explores the appeal of mountains to the human imagination and Ben Shewry, chef-patron of Melbourne’s Attica, one of the world’s top 50 restaurants, reflects on how cycling changed his life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very appealing, as I suspected :-) As working for a dtp / graphic design studio and translating, editing and publishing desingbooks I felt Mondial as a must for buying immediately. It arrived quite quickly, the content of the parcel looked great: besides the magazine I received an RCC intro leaflet, an A3 folded product brochure and even the order details' sheet was in a perfectly and stylishly matching envelope, using Rives creative paper and the whole package was matching Rapha's CI completely. These eye-candies are also a great treat for anyone who is dealing with design :-) Mondial magazine itself looks wonderfully with its layout, typography and the images, and event the copy is OK. Thanks for it :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful layout, diverse stories I was given a copy of Issue #1 at the Tour of California. When I got home, I decided to read it. So glad that I did. This magazine presents cycling and world cyclists live in, in such a bold fashion. For once a magazine that does not isolate cycling but shows us how interconnected it is in the world around us. It is about cycling and so much more. There are also wonderful features about artists, architects and wine. The paper is beautiful, the graphics and photography are stunning, the layout is fun and retro, but fresh. I immediately purchased Issues #2 and #3. A beautiful magazine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So not a magazine! More. These I'll keep. It would be crime to throw away: if I found this in a waiting room I think I would, ermm liberate. Everything screams top quality, the actual item itself, the paper, printing, typography is top notch. What makes it a real keep is the quality of the writing, not just about cycling (loved the interview with Erik Spiekermann!), the layouts and photography. Any cyclist would love this as a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you like books and bikes you'll like Mondial. In just two issues, Rapha has become one of my favorite magazine publishers. You don't have to be a cyclist to appreciate Mondial, you simply must appreciate good writing, beautiful images, and thought provoking stories. Mondial is not a magazine you read on the plane and toss when you land. Mondial is archive worthy. It's a magazine you'll keep and share.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Rapha touch applied to more than cycling I was excited when issue two came out as I thought issue one was great; I ordered it as soon as I got the email. I brings Rapha touch and flourish to so much more - thought there is still a good amount of cycling content. One of the very few magazines of any kind that I read cover to cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite cycling magazine Everything is great about this mag, content, choice of topics, design, paper, print and smell. And indeed - no paid product placements and useless reviews. Still of course you can read features on Rapha products. Would be happy just to subscribe to it if Rapha would make it possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read 'Em & Weep I'm impressed with both the first two issues of Mondial: great articles & some stunning artwork. I'm one of the 'sad' brigade who likes to read magazines (& books) in print rather than digitally and Mondial is an extremely high quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Collectable An excellent and refreshing publication from the world of cycling. Bored with the same old formats and scripts, this offers something I didn't quite know for sure I was looking for. Certainly will be collected and stored carefully
