Rapha introduces the Road Graffiti collection; designed for hard riding. Whether you’re tackling climbs in midsummer, or putting in high tempo miles on cooler days, it’s a collection to remind you of the passion and energy of cycling’s fans.
Names, nicknames, sponsor logos, words of encouragement, finely crafted insults – fans have immortalised their thoughts and feelings in road graffiti since the dawn of racing. The paint comes out as the atmosphere builds, with fans competing to create the greatest expression of wit and wisdom. The peloton and TV cameras flash by, but the graffiti remains, a lasting testament to the race’s atmosphere.
This limited edition collection draws on the passion of the crowd, featuring eight of Rapha’s most technically advanced jerseys, bibs, and accessories with a print inspired by cycling’s road graffiti.
The Road Graffiti collection is designed for hard riding, with the print available on eight of our race-ready garments from the Pro Team and Souplesse ranges. Whether you’re tackling climbs in midsummer, or putting in high tempo miles on cooler days, there’s something in the Road Graffiti collection to remind you of the passion and energy of cycling’s fans.
The true home of cycling’s graffiti is in the mountains, where the riders and motos go slow enough to allow a glimpse of the work. We went to the Alps to catch up with a family as they painted a tribute to their favourite rider.
