Rapha has been changing cycling fashion since 2004 and continues to produce some of the most sought-after clothing available. Founded in London by Simon Mottram as a response to the lack of fashionable cycling clothing at the time, Rapha combines simplistic bold styling with high-quality designs and fabrics. Sponsors of the EF Pro Cycling team in the WorldTour, Rapha's roots lie firmly in road cycling, as proven by the brand's representation in our guides to the best cycling shorts, best cycling jerseys, best cycling shoes and more, but as the landscape has become ever-more rugged, Rapha's range has diversified accordingly, now offering a complete range of gravel bike clothing too.

As a side effect of the brand's premium product offering, the Rapha name earned a reputation for its premium price, too. However fear not, you can take advantage of the archive sale at Rapha.cc, where there are over 150 products discounted for both men and women, meaning the same quality products are available at a considerably more pocket-friendly price. 

Where to find Rapha deals

We've collated a roundup of the best Rapha clothing deals available below. But if you fancy yourself as a deal hunter or you just want to browse the sales yourself, the links below will take you to various retailers' collections of discounted Rapha.

Rapha’s well thought out kit caters for every level of rider, whether you are starting out with their more-affordable Core line or leading the pack in the Pro Team kit as worn by EF Pro Cycling. Rapha doesn’t just make cycling clothing and accessories but casual clothing suited to commuting, relaxed rides and wearing off the bike. 

The brand's loyal following is well deserved, not only is Rapha clothing consistently well-reviewed but they stand by the quality of their products. All Rapha’s riding collections are covered by a 30-day free return period, free crash repair service and even a 50% discount off as part of its jersey downsize offer. 

Beyond the clothing, Rapha works hard to build cycling communities by sponsoring unique events and through their RCC (Rapha Cycling Club) global community. Should you drink the RCC kool-aid, you will join more than 12,000 members with access to a wealth of perks and benefits from special group rides, members-only kit and 50% off coffee at their clubhouses. 

While Rapha will offer deals on the kit by bundling items like jerseys and bibs together, they hold a premium on their brand and aren’t ones for slashing their prices all-too-often, so take advantage of the archive sale, as these discounts won’t be around forever.
