Fully customisable clothing. A sleep system for cross-country adventures. A jacket designed specifically for the commute. Iconic products, reimagined. Look up the road with these new season highlights from Rapha.

04 September 2018



Whether you’re swapping the daily rail fare for a blast of morning air or gliding past the lines of traffic you used to sit in, those who commute by bike know its virtues. For the first time they have a dedicated jacket designed specifically for the ride to work. Waterproof, breathable and visible while riding, the jacket is stylish and comfortable when worn off the bike.



Led by our iconic merino wool jerseys, a completely new jacket and redesigned winter tights, the new Classic collection is perfect for the challenges of autumn and winter riding. The new Archive Tweed Softshell Jacket takes a rugged, water-resistant material that has been used for centuries and incorporates it into a highly technical three-layer fabric to create a contemporary classic, at home on and off the bike. It’ll go perfectly with the redesigned Classic Winter Tights, an iconic piece now with a size-specific chamois pad and reworked seam lines for an improved fit.



Flashing headlights, dotted lines and reflective chevrons; being seen on the road is about dynamic movement and reflecting light. The upcoming Brevet Visibility Jacket and Gilet feature high grade retroreflective strips that will make you unmissable on the road.



Tried and tested by Transcontinental race winners and current pros, the Explore collection is for pushing the boundaries and breaking new ground. Expert feedback from our testers and collaborators has led to completely new products such as the Rapha sleep system, a combination of the Explore Sleeping Bag and the versatile Explore Down Jacket, our own lightweight and waterproof bike packs, and the new Explore Cargo Winter Tights with pockets. Ride until life looks less familiar, and sleep wherever you lay your mat.



The history of road cycling is laden with stories of defunct races and forgotten heroes. Our latest special edition collection celebrates one such event, a two-day race, run only twice: the Milano - Roma. It is rich with the detail and luxury quality befitting these celebratory capsules, and includes a couple of dazzling off-bike pieces too.



Life as a professional cyclist takes you to all corners of the world, as CANYON//SRAM rider Hannah Barnes can attest. Our second collaboration with a pro athlete, the Hidden Leaves collection takes inspiration from Hannah’s travels and celebrates her favourite time of year to ride, the autumn.



New for this winter, Rapha has updated several pieces in the Pro Team range, with protective, windblocking fabrics carefully positioned alongside more breathable materials to help with temperature regulation on colder rides. A much loved favourite, the Pro Team Winter Tights with Pad, also receives an overhaul, with an improved fit and fabric for your fastest winter rides and races.



Developed on the front line of the professional peloton with the CANYON//SRAM team, the new Souplesse Shadow Tights provide unmatched foul weather protection. Available exclusively to women, they feature our proprietary Shadow fabric throughout, perfect for racing or training in cold and wet conditions.



‘There’s nothing there. No towns, no villages, nothing at all.’
Hot on the heels of Outskirts: Route 66, the first in a series of Rapha films following adventures along the world’s most renowned roads, comes the crew’s latest adventure. Travelling into the wilderness on an equally iconic but far more isolated road, the next film sees them navigate Canada’s Trans-Labrador Highway.



For the first time, we’re offering completely customisable Rapha products. Using our online design tool, anyone will be able to create a standout kit for their teammates, local club or group of friends. The finest cycling kit, designed by you
