Brand Documentary Magazine # 84 Rapha
Founded in London by cycling enthusiast Simon Mottram in 2004, Rapha became the first sportswear brand to design solid color cycling jerseys made of merino wool, revolutionizing cycling apparel into fashionable clothing. In line with the founder’s passion for cycling, Rapha’s many collections satisfy both professional and casual urban cyclists. The brand has also opened over 20 clubhouses throughout Europe, North America, and Asia to serve as community hubs for cyclists. Today, Rapha continues to contribute to cycling culture as a sponsor for events that promote the sport of cycling and foundations that inspire and empower the next generation.
