New pieces arrive in refreshed lineup for bike-related travel

Rapha has launched a range of new ‘travel essential’ pieces, designed to “deliver optimal storage and comfort on the move”, demonstrating that its approach to catering for the discerning rider’s every need is as bright as it’s ever been.

The new travel range features two backpacks, a weekend bag, luxury washbags and even refreshed rainproof cases for ride essentials, helping to protect your valuables from inclement weather. It means the brand now covers the luggage needs of everyone from the regular city commuter, right through to the weekend tripper.

Rapha’s popular backpack has been redesigned and is available in two sizes

Commuters will appreciate the small travel backpack, which has a 15-litre capacity and incorporates essentials such as a 13-inch laptop sleeve and a mesh pocket to store shoes. It’s available in a waterproofed black nylon or reflective nylon construction, costing £90 and £110 respectively, and comes supplied with a water resistant rain cover.

A larger version is also available with a 25-litre capacity, which is claimed to be enough to store essentials for an overnight stay, costing £130 or £150 depending on the choice of fabric.

The two weekend bags are available in either a waterproofed nylon (£170) or leather (£595) construction, and are designed for, you guessed it. longer weekend stays. They too come with dedicated compartments for cycling kit, electronic devices and shoes, as well as space for casual clothes, and are designed to comply with carry-on baggage restrictions of most airlines.
