When Rapha does something domestically-produced either in London, or Italy you know it’s going to be good. It’s like they save the best products to be made by the best hands. Cycling apparel has been made by the Italians since the dawn of the bicycle and so it should be no surprise that Rapha looked to Italy to manufacture their new Pro Team Shadow kit. It’s designed for racing in inclement weather with high-tech fabrics and a super sleek fit. Check out more information below and see the line at Rapha. (more…)

Words and photos by Kevin Scott Batchelor

The last time I got the call to cover a Rapha Prestige event, I found myself wondering how any of the teams were going to handle the brutal course that had awaited them. More than 130 miles with 14,000 feet of climbing, on mixed terrain, with dizzying temperatures, sounded much more like a stage in the Vuelta than something my friends might ride. LA was a monster, complete with jagged teeth and scorching breath.

I love it when Rapha does small projects like this. Especially when they’re made either in the UK or in the case of sunglasses, Italy.

Rapha: the Longest Day Trailer

Here’s an interesting concept from Rapha:

“Rapha asked some of its riders to ride from sunrise to sunset across the reaches of the world, from France to the United States to Japan. One film crew flew from point to point to document the rides and learned that no matter where a long ride takes place there are common elements that unite.”

From the looks of this trailer, one of those common elements are insane landscapes. I can’t wait to see the full-length.
