Rapha Team Sky cycling kit includes bibs shorts jersey jacket cap and other gear and clothing
For 2013, Rapha is sponsoring their first pro team with full kit and the requisite lifestyle and “fan” replica pieces. In usual Rapha style, they’ve gone all out with the story telling and imagery.

Immerse yourself in the product range on their website or with their Mallorca training camp Look Book (including interview with Team Performance Manager Rod Ellingworth) to get in the mood, then click below for images and a brief description of the three tiers of clothing and kit offered…

To watch a Grand Tour champion escape from the pack and up a mountain is to witness grace, beauty and perfection on a bike. To watch a Classics champion float over the cobbles evokes very different emotions. Riders of the former variety have earned such nicknames as ‘Eagle’ and ‘Angel’, whereas the latter rarely bring out the Romantic poets in their admirers as they pound the cobbles with extraordinary power and determination. The term ‘Raging Bull’ came to my mind after my own baptism of fire in the flames of the ‘Hell of the North’ last weekend.
