ABOUT THE BRAND
Founded by Simon Mottram in London in 2004, Rapha exists to make cycling the most popular sport in the world. For 15 years, Rapha has been making the finest cycling clothing and organising rides and events for passionate cyclists around the world. With 22 clubhouses in 13 countries, we continue to work with the best athletes and designers, and strive to perfect any adventure on the bike, whether it’s the shortest ride or the longest race.
Rapha was established in 2004 as an online retail company, and has since expanded to include physical retail spaces known as Clubhouses. These can currently be found in 23 vibrant cycling locations around the world as well as temporary Pop-up stores and Mobile Clubhouses out on the road.
The Rapha brand has built a reputation for the highest possible quality and technically advanced production techniques alongside a healthy nod to nostalgia and the culture of road cycling. To achieve consistent high standards, Rapha works only with the best in the industry, delivering products ranging from vintage merino tracksuits to Pro Tour-winning racing apparel.
Today, Rapha is based in London, where it was founded and has regional offices in the US, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. In addition, Rapha has non-retail presence in Switzerland, France, Austria, Germany and Singapore. Rapha understands the very real risk of force, fraud or coercion among employees in global business supply chains, and is committed to help combat modern slavery wherever possible.
