Rapha will launch a new range of luxury winter products at the 2005 Cycle Show in London this week. Amongst the products to be showcased by the award winning company will be a range of Merino knitwear products, including a training top, base layers, and a new, long-sleeved version of its popular Merino shirt. Rapha will also reveal a new range of performance products for urban riding, called 'Fixed'.

The products are available as individual garments, or as part of Rapha's 'Winter Packs' - seasonal bundles of selected winter roadwear packaged together in three easy-to-buy packs. Designed to keep the cold weather at bay, Rapha's 'Winter Packs' have been specially put together for the Christmas market and are available at a special discounted price:

A major feature of Rapha's Exhibition Stand will be its iconic 'broom wagon', an original 1940s Citroen H Van which was used as an official race vehicle at last month's Tour of Britain.

Visitors registering at the Rapha stand (L20a) during the course of the show will automatically enter a 'Get Ready For Autumn' promotion, giving them the opportunity to win the complete Rapha collection, worth over £600.

All Rapha products have pared down styling and use the finest materials, performance features and quality finishes. The 'Winter Packs' and Rapha's exclusive range of premium performance clothing are available worldwide from www.rapha.cc
