With headquarters in UK, Rapha create cycle clothing that is desired by cyclists the world over. Their first collection was launched back in 2004 and since then, Rapha have stamped their name in the world of cycling.
Not only to they produce wonderfully technical, beautifully designed kit, Rapha also organise rides, races and events – including the Rapha Women’s 100 that was held back in July.
As well as being involved in activities to get us mere mortals cycling, in 2013 Rapha also became official clothing sponsor to Team Sky Pro Cycling. See that kit worn by the Tour de France winner Froome? Rapha were responsible for that!
With their commitment to all sides of cycling, it’s safe to say that Rapha know their stuff. When you buy a piece of Rapha kit, you know it’s going to stay in your wardrobe for many years to come. In fact, our editor is still wearing the Classic bibs and they look and feel as new.
Throughout the year, Rapha have been expanding their already impressive women’s range, and they’ve sent Total Women’s Cycling some of their winter 2013 collection to test. Here are our first impressions of the gear they’ve posted across.
