  1. The Making of a Classic

    Nouvelles: Joe Hall | Date:

    Launched in 2004, the Classic Jersey was the first ever Rapha jersey. Originally called the Sportwool™ Jersey, it was like nothing else at the time. All black with a white stripe on the arm and cut from a strange light-wool fabric, its minimalism concealed a beautifully functional garment. One reporter declared it the ‘best bike jersey the world has ever seen.’ To mark the launch of the brand new Classic Jersey II, we spoke to founder and CEO of Rapha, Simon Mottram, to find out about the origins of the design.

  2. Sixteen For 2016

    Nouvelles: Simon Mottram | Date:

    It’s time once more where, as road riders, we prepare for the approaching season and set goals for the New Year. My goal in 2016 is 50 momentous rides, to celebrate my 50th year. Here at Rapha I encourage all employees to set riding targets, to have one or more things in the crosshairs to help better their riding and racing. Every New Year I also like to look ahead to what Rapha as a company has in its sights; the products we will launch, the events we will host and the places we will travel to. Back in 2008 it was easier, I thought, to compile such a list. I supposed this year it would be much tougher, but it wasn’t. We have some amazing things in store for 2016, from new Cycle Clubs to watching the Tour on Mt. Ventoux. Everyone is, of course, invited to join the ride. From all of us at Rapha, happy New Year and strong riding in 2016.
