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.
