My Rapha Pick
The vast majority of Rapha employees are keen cyclists. We’ve asked some of the experts – and a few famous friends – about their favourite products to advise the perfect gift for any cyclist.
Gifts under $75
The perfect size for all your on-the-bike bits: phone, card, inner tube, keys. It's much better than pulling a plastic bag out of your jersey. The beautiful Italian leather means I use this off the bike too. It fits a passport perfectly and is great for keeping everything you need together during that airport admin.
– Lara Kazakos, Pro Teams Marketing Manager
$75 – $150
$150 – $230
Deep Winter Gloves
Forget about cold hands. The Deep Winter Gloves will keep you warm throughout the winter. They have a very good fit, a waterproof but breathable material and a leather palm for perfect grip. They’ll also be your best partner in the snowball fight after your ride.

Women's Core Winter Tights With Pad
Finding a pair of tights that fit well and aren't a nuisance is tough. The new Core Winter Tights are soft, have a high waist and don't feel too bulky when you add all of your other layers. They're my comfort zone before I ride out of it.
– Kitty Pemberton-Platt, Head of Social
Women's Padded Tights
When the weather drops, these are my instant go-to. The soft fleece-lined fabric offers the perfect balance of warmth and breathability, without the bulk. The high waist keeps my kidneys covered and protected, avoiding that lower-back ache – and the rain beads off in light showers too. The winning feature for me though, is not having to completely undress when nature calls.
– Eve Izaak, Graphic Designer
