Once sombre Rapha revels in full colour

Rapha offers new colours across range for autumn-winter 2021

Kit maker Rapha’s stock in trade was once moody monochrome photos of very serious cyclists doing very serious things, but that’s changed in recent years. The brand’s latest autumn-winter collection has launched under the headline Flying Colours, and it’s certainly offering a more varied palette. Equally significantly, the models showing off the range look downright pleased with the whole situation.

Flying Colours is strictly an aesthetic update, with a host of familiar products getting a refresh.

Rapha’s signature armband is in evidence wherever sleeves permit and notable eye-catchers include the men’s orange and blue Pro Team Long Sleeve Training Jersey (£95), and the women’s green and cream version of same.

As a mountain bike product it’s not strictly in our wheelhouse, but we rather like the ‘turmeric’-hued Trail Lightweight Jacket that comes in at £130.

To see the full Flying Colours range, head over to Rapha.
