THE RAPHA CORE COLLECTION
At the heart of any cyclist’s wardrobe are the items that we reach for daily. The go-to pieces of kit that we pull on time and time again; dependable; reliable, and the very definition of the Rapha Core collection
Known for its innovation and quality, Rapha has taken learnings from its most iconic ranges like Classic, Brevet and Pro Team to create the Core range. Perfected with a global Wear Testing program that includes riders from the pro peloton, each product is tested to the limit before making the grade. With both male and female specific options available, the apparel adopts a Classic Rapha fit, chamois, style, quality and comfort, without any unnecessary extras.
Featuring all of cycling essentials, Rapha Core has been designed without compromise, delivering high spec finishing details and retaining exceptional quality.
The range of cyclewear has become the trusted choice for all cycling disciplines and by all levels of riders, from complete beginner to race winners. Soft breathable fabrics are combined with close but unrestrictive fit, making the collection versatile for all rides and all weather conditions.
Rapha Core is incredibly functional. Capable of an everyday short spin, or long distance adventure, it’s dependable and durable. Items have been specially designed to offer simple options, making it easier to just grab and get riding.
On test the male and female range has proved unbeatable, scoring top marks and winning awards, becoming valuable and essential pieces of kit for even the reviewers.
Items such as the Rapha Core Cargo bib shorts, ‘which are built around the brilliant Rapha Core bib short, add versatility to an already comfortable package’ making the Cycling Weekly tester promote them to standard road ride
duties, and want to ‘use a pair on every bike ride’ if he could.
Nothing has been left out of the principal pieces of cycling attire. Items incorporate laser cut silicone grippers, dual density padding, performance fabrics for either temperature regulation or a rain and wind protection and retain the quintessential Rapha signature armband for a refined look.
Examples include the Rapha Core Lightweight jersey, created using a highly breathable, lightweight mesh to promote airflow and Core bib shorts, constructed using high-stretch, but dense knit fabric for modesty and support. Teamed together they make the ideal hot weather companions.
Whether you’re starting your love affair with riding a bike, or are a seasoned rider, Rapha Core sets a new standard in value no matter what, where or when you ride.
