Rapha Goes Touring

Rapha’s heart has always been in road cycling but, perhaps reflecting the upsurge in bike touring and gravel riding, they’ve launched a small new “Rapha Explore” range of clothing to meet the needs of those who want to take the road less travelled.


Their cargo bib shorts have pockets! Whatever you might usually stuff in the back of a jersey there’s now room to put in your shorts. “Tested for over a year at races across Europe, in the Australian heat and the wilderness of Argentina, these shorts were designed to excel at extremes but are just as comfortable on the commute or club run.”


There’s also a technical T-shirt and Polo for “cross country adventures or cruising through the city.”

Cool stuff. We hope that Rapha will expand their range even further. Rapha tent coming soon?
