Luxury cycling brand Rapha released their new ‘affordable’ Rapha Core range today, giving cyclists everywhere a chance to own a piece of clothing from the famous brand.

Since it launched in 2004, Rapha has been perceived as one of the finest brands in Cycling, but to many Cyclists, the seemingly prohibitive cost has been hard to justify.

Rapha Core Bib Shorts

According to Rapha “The Core” range combines clean, tone-on-tone styling with technical fabrics and thoughtful detailing. The jersey, available in a men’s and women’s version, is designed to fit comfortably while on a bike.”

Rapha is quick to point out, this is not competing against the lower-end brands found on many mainstream cycling apparel websites, but instead is a less expensive line that is designed for everyday use, as opposed to the main garment used for Sunday club rides and Sportives. At £75 for the jersey and £100 for the bib shorts, these are still not garments for everybody, but considerably less expensive than other Rapha products including the £200 Pro Team Thermal Bibs.
