With national champions and WorldTour winners, for years we’ve worked to make the world’s finest and fastest cycling apparel. But Rapha has always taken the road less travelled. Since 2004, our kit has been put to task on adventures of all kinds. From the birth of our Brevet range for Paris-Brest-Paris in 2011 to cross-continental endurance races and first time forays off road, we’ve designed to go the distance.
As the landscape changes, so too does the way we dress for the ride. Different directions demand a new way of thinking. They demand a break with tradition.
Perfect for multi-day adventures, our Explore collection comprises hard wearing, quick drying and packable products that can easily be washed and re-worn. For the times you'd rather not wear a jersey, our Explore T-shirts are made from innovative fabrics that wick sweat, keeping you cool and dry. A loose cut promotes airflow around the body on hot days. With hidden reflective trim that helps you stay visible on the bike, the t-shirt is a more casual approach to dressing for your next ride.
JACKETS, GILETS & PULLOVERS
When heading out for a long ride, there’s no predicting what the day has in store. Packable outer layers are key to a comfortable ride in changeable conditions. Never get caught out with weatherproof garments that stow away neatly into a pocket, made using lightweight materials that help maintain body temperature in cooler temperatures.
Women’s Explore Long Sleeve Pullover
Cargo Bib Shorts
Our first bib shorts with pockets. With room to carry on both legs and the back, they’ll take everything you would usually keep in your jersey. Made with a lightweight water resistant material, they are ready for all kinds of weather. 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. Pick up a pair and try them for thirty days – if you’re not happy, you can return them for a full refund.
“I wore Cargo Bibs under the Technical T-shirt. It worked great. Nice airflow. Stayed cool in the warm weather.”- Jesse Carlsson, Argentina 2018
Multi-day adventures require preparation. Reliable products can make the difference between completing a route in comfort and having to pack up early, which is why our riding accessories are durable, practical and fit for a wide range of conditions.
