Rapha's new winter collection


Hurray for Rapha's new winter collection, a great way to expand on their women's line-up and most welcomed by Rapha fans we're sure. We got a sneak preview at the winter launch in August and as always you can expect fabulous quality and perfection in design and the fabrics used. Roll on winter we say!


We adore a good softshell jacket and can’t imagine our cycling wardrobe without one, Rapha’s Women’s Classic Softshell Jacket is super stylish and is perfect for winter riding and general wear. It’s windproof, water-resistant and highly breathable and tailored for women with specific side panels for a structured shape. We spotted some lovely features, such as the rubberized pad on the left shoulder to keep bag straps in place, zippered pit vents, large cargo pockets,  valuables pocket, MP3 pocket and fold out storm flap.  The softshell will be available late September and costs £240 www.rapha.cc

Rapha’s new Women’s ¾ Bib Shorts costing £160 are available late September. Designed for winter riding the fabric is fleece backed with flatlock stitching and a high-rise chest panel for comfort and warmth. The bib straps are seriously lovely mesh, with a large cutaway section at the rear plus an elasticated pocket for personal items. The pad looks great too, a contoured Cytech pad for all round comfort in the saddle.
