You will need to register to be able to access some services on the rapha.cc website (our “site”). When you register your details online, you are required to make sure that this information is accurate, current and a true representation of your personal details. You are also responsible for maintaining your personal information via your online account as well as for keeping your password secret.
The Terms of Service together with all our policies and procedures will be governed by and construed in accordance to the relevant United Kingdom law and the relevant courts of the United Kingdom will have exclusive jurisdiction.
Once your order is complete, you will be requested to provide personal and payment details. As part of the online transaction, we will perform a fraud credit check via our payment provider Adyen. By submitting a payment through the site, you are granting permission for us to carry out such checks via Adyen as required.
Orders on the site are subject to the required stock availability. Items added to your basket on the site will not be reserved for you, and are available for sale to other customers browsing the online store at the same time.
When you have finalised your order via the site, stock will be reserved for your purchase. However, sales will not be confirmed until the order dispatches from the warehouse, and payment is successfully taken.
Stock availability is determined by your delivery address, subject to stock availability at the warehouse in your locale. We are unable to offer customers stock from warehouses outside of their delivery-address service area.
Once you have placed your order via rapha.cc it is not possible for you, or our Customer Services team, to modify or cancel any part of the order. This includes delivery addresses, quantities, sizes, or payment methods.
All site pricing will be shown in local currency where available, and otherwise priced in US Dollars (USD). Payments are currently accepted in the following currencies: British pounds (GBP), US dollars (USD), Canadian dollars (CAD), Euros (EUR), Swiss francs (CHF), Japanese yen (JPY), Norwegian kroner (NOK), Swedish kronor (SEK), Danish kroner (DKK) and New Taiwan dollars (TWD). Orders can only be placed in the currency relating to your shipping country, and we are unable to offer alternative currency pricing to any customer.
All UK and EU pricing is shown inclusive of tax. Rapha uses a standard pricing policy for the UK and Channel Islands which ensures that all of our customers are charged the same final price, regardless of where they live. We do not offer VAT refunds on orders delivered to the Channel Islands. All total prices for goods displayed on the checkout page represent the total price payable by the customer for those items, regardless of the address for delivery. For EU deliveries, this price includes VAT (or VAT equivalent) at the current rate. Although this price is the same for deliveries outside the EU, where VAT (or VAT equivalent) may not be applicable, customers are not entitled to any discount or refund to account for the differences in tax treatment.
These customers will pay the same price for the item as a customer placing an order for delivery to the EU. Other components of the total price at the checkout, including delivery charge, may vary for each customer.
Import duties and taxes may be applied by your local authority. It is a legal requirement that we declare the full transaction value of the contents of all packages. Local import duties and taxes are levied by the carrier on behalf of the local customs authority.
US and Canada pricing is shown exclusive of sales tax, and sales tax may be added at the checkout, once the delivery address has been confirmed. No import duty is due on US orders, as these ship from within the United States. Canadian pricing is inclusive of import duty (see DDP below).
5. DUTY DELIVERY PAID (DDP)
Pricing in the following territories is inclusive of duty and tax:
Switzerland, Japan, Norway, Canada (applicable tax shown at checkout)
Orders in these territories will be sent duty paid, meaning that no further import duty or tax will be payable after the order has been placed on the site.
6. SALE PRICING ADJUSTMENTS
From time to time, Rapha will run discounted pricing on specific items as part of a sale or promotion. Subject to the sentence below, Rapha is happy to compensate the difference in price between the amount paid and the discounted price, in the form of a voucher, if the item was purchased at full price within 14 days of the commencement of the specific discount.
Please note that we are not able to offer any refund or voucher if the same item (inc. colour/size) is not in stock at the specific delivery address warehouse, as seen on Rapha.cc at the time of the request, or if the item was originally purchased at a discounted sale price, or if we have already provided a price match on the order.
7. PAYMENT & ORDER ACCEPTANCE
We accept the following payment types on our site:
Union Pay (Credit only)
Gift vouchers and e-vouchers
Please note that travel trips cannot be purchased via Paypal.
Payments for all orders are taken on dispatch of goods, and are subject to fraud checks and checks by the card issuer.
By submitting your order on our site, you are confirming that the credit/debit card is yours or that you have authority from the cardholder to make the payment. We reserve the right to refuse payments & orders for customers who are not 18 years of age or older.
We will process your payments securely via the Adyen payments system, and all payment details will be encrypted. All stored card details will be stored securely on Adyen's secure servers.
Your payment and order will only be deemed as final when final payment is taken on dispatch of your goods. We reserve the right to refuse any payments or cancel orders at our own discretion.
8. GIFT VOUCHERS AND E-VOUCHERS
Gift vouchers and e-vouchers (“Vouchers”) cannot be bought using discount or promotional codes, and cannot be purchased with another Voucher.
Vouchers can be redeemed to purchase Rapha products only online, at Rapha.cc.
Vouchers can be redeemed in part, with the remaining balance left on the Voucher Code.
Vouchers purchased in a Rapha Clubhouse cannot currently be redeemed online at Rapha.cc, and visa versa.
‘RCC Membership Gift Vouchers’ can only be redeemed on RCC Membership.
‘Gift Vouchers’ and Clubhouse Vouchers’ cannot be redeemed on RCC Membership.
All vouchers (Gift Vouchers, Clubhouse Vouchers, and RCC Membership Vouchers) are single use, and are valid for twelve months. Vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount, voucher code or RCC membership.
If an order value is greater than the value of the Voucher, the difference must be paid by credit/debit card, or using Paypal.
Vouchers must be redeemed within twelve months of purchase and any unused balance will not be refunded or credited after such time.
Any balance credited from a part-redeemed Voucher must be used in the same currency as the first purchase it was redeemed with.
We are unable to replace vouchers if they are lost, stolen or damaged.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you can return it for a refund, provided it is within 14 days of receipt of your order, the item is as new and in the original packaging, and was not sold as Final Sale. All returns for orders over 14 days old must be sent back to Rapha within one month of the refund request being made. We reserve the right to refuse refunds for returned items, which are not in saleable condition.
Faulty items will either be replaced, repaired or refunded following evaluation by the Rapha Customer Services team. For the avoidance of doubt, faulty goods are classified as items that are received damaged or develop a manufacturing fault. Items damaged through general wear and tear are not classified as faulty. Faulty items can returned within twelve (12) months for a replacement or a repair. If this is not possible, we will offer a refund or credit voucher.
Final Sale (US / South Korea Only): Orders delivered to the United States or South Korea, and placed on or after January 11th, 2024, where a product price ends in $–.95 / 990.0 KRW are sold as Final Sale, and are not returnable - as described in the Cart when reviewing your order. Our returns portal will advise you on returns eligibility of an item.
Bundle Refunds: From time to time, we may offer products in mix-and-match bundles, offering a percentage discount when buying a number of eligible items. Should you choose to “break’ a bundle offer by returning only one of the items in the bundle, any refund issued to you may be less than the retail price of the returned item.
Returns Fair Use Policy / Resellers: Rapha only sells direct to cyclist via Rapha•cc, and in the event we suspect unusual or fraudulent activity with your account, we reserve the right to place a block on a customer account or amend our returns offering without notice to you. This may be to offer final sale only (no option to return, subject to any local regulations), to shorten the time period for creating a return, or to charge a returns shipping fee per unit. This isn’t something we take lightly, and only enforce this approach in the event of disproportionate misuse or abuse of our returns policy, or we believe an order has been placed for the purposes of resale.
Activity we reserve the right to take action on includes, but is not limited to: ordering and returns large volumes of product; returns not matching what was ordered; returned items when used or worn; and items either missing or not received. Your statutory rights are not affected.
Returns are only accepted online for items purchased directly from Rapha.cc. If you have purchased your item from a Clubhouse, you should return the item directly to the Clubhouse where the item was purchased.
Products purchased as gifts can be refunded in full to the original purchaser; alternatively we can provide a credit in the form of a voucher to the gift recipient. Rapha is unable to refund postage on returned gift items.
To initiate a return, simply visit rapha.cc/returns.

If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you. These terms are governed by English law. Both you and Rapha Racing Limited agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
