Rapha creates the finest cycling clothing and accessories in the world. Designed without compromise for the most discerning rider, Rapha products blend style with optimum performance. A passion for road racing means Rapha is more than just a product company. It is an emporium of performance roadwear, accessories, publications and events, all celebrating the glory and suffering of road riding.
Founded by Simon Mottram in London in 2004, Rapha launched with a month-long exhibition in East London’s Old Truman Brewery. Entitled Kings of Pain, it showcased six heroes from cycling’s golden era and beyond: Fausto Coppi, Jacques Anquetil, Raymond Poulidor, Tom Simpson, Eddy Merckx and Bernard Hinault. These riders perfectly captured the glory and suffering – and style – of road racing and today they, along with many others, continue to provide a source of inspiration for Rapha’s design.
