What’s New: Rapha Launches New Saddle Range

These saddles have been years in the making and now the wait is finally over

We’ve been waiting years for this and now the time has finally come as Rapha launches their first saddle collection.

Having perfected their bib-short technology, Rapha set their sights on developing a comfortable performance saddle to complement their existing range of clothing. The results of their extensive research and development are two models with two sizes; Classic for longer days and Pro Team for more aggressive riding.

The Rapha Classic saddle range

“We wanted to create an unrivalled riding experience by combining the Rapha chamois with a saddle, so we recruited the most experienced saddle manufacturers, developers and engineers in the industry to help us create a system that could provide total comfort,” said Alex Valdman, Creative Director at Rapha

The Rapha Pro Team saddle range

These saddles are constructed from foam density that has been tuned to rider weight and works as a system with Rapha bib shorts (Pro Team II and Classic II) to achieve the optimal comfort through compression. Lightweight carbon construction, made by hand in Italy has just a one-piece carbon rail running the entire length of the saddle, providing flex and compliance for a more comfortable contact point.
