Win your own custom-designed kit with Rapha and Cyclingnews
Pro Team Midweight jersey and Pro Team bib shorts up for grabs, with four pairs to be auctioned for charity
Earlier this year, Rapha reached out to Cyclingnews to ask if we would write a feature about Custom, the brand's new tool which allows users to create their own design from an almost infinite number of possibilities via new online designing software. In the months since, we've burned through many an hour playing with the tool, however, while deciding on which of the many designs and colours to use, we think we had a better idea.
Rather than use the tool ourselves to create a design of our own, then write a review of the process we're giving our readers a reason to try it out themselves.
Throughout this week, you are invited to use Rapha Custom to create your own designs, then on Friday we'll pick a design and the lucky creator will ride off into the sunset wearing his or her new, truly-unique kit.
However, that's not all. Rapha Custom has a minimum order of five of each item when designing using its online creator tool. So the four remaining kit designs will be put up for auction, and the proceeds will be donated to charity - split equally between CALM and Ambitious about Autism.
How to enter
Step 1. Head to Rapha Custom (opens in new tab) and create an account so that later on, you can save your design and share it with us.
Step 2. Design your own kit
Ensure you complete your design for both a jersey and bib shorts in order for your entry to be valid. You can choose to design either a men's or a women's design. If you wish to include the charity logos, you can download them from the gallery at the foot of this page.
Jersey links: Men's Pro Team Midweight jersey (opens in new tab) or Women's Pro Team Midweight jersey (opens in new tab).
Bib shorts links: Men's Pro Team bib shorts (opens in new tab) or Women's Pro Team bib shorts (opens in new tab).
Step 3. Once you've finished a design, hit 'review and save', then 'save and exit'.
Step 4. Once you have designed both jersey and bib shorts, head to your Rapha Custom account page (opens in new tab).
Step 5. Share your designs. Under each of your two designs, hit 'options', then hit 'copy link' and paste them both into the form below.
If the form doesn't load, you can view it at the original link here.
If you wish to include the Ambitious about Autism, CALM, Rapha or Cyclingnews logos into your design, you can download them here.

As the Tech Editor here at Cyclingnews, Josh leads on content relating to all-things tech, including bikes, kit and components in order to cover product launches and curate our world-class buying guides, reviews and deals. Alongside this, his love for WorldTour racing and eagle eyes mean he's often breaking tech stories from the pro peloton too.
On the bike, 30-year-old Josh has been riding and racing since his early teens. He started out racing cross country when 26-inch wheels and triple chainsets were still mainstream, but he found favour in road racing in his early 20s and has never looked back. He's always training for the next big event and is keen to get his hands on the newest tech to help. He enjoys a good long ride on road or gravel, but he's most alive when he's elbow-to-elbow in a local criterium.
